The star studded Qualifier Red Carpet charity event and after party was attended by an eye popping, mouth dropping list of celebrities who all came out to support such an incredibly worthy event.

Celebrities attending "The Qualifiers" besides Eva and her husband, Tony Parker, included actress Bai Ling, Desperate Housewife Brenda Strong, Chris Ashworth, Christina DeRosa, Eric Winter, Dominic Scott Kay, Gene Simmons, Jacob Vargas, Jason Kennedy, Jessie Camacho, Hollywood Hairdresser Jonathan Antin and his gorgeous sister Robin of Pussycat Dolls and Girlicious.

The Desperate Housewives star was hosting a celebrity scavenger hunt and car rally benefit for Padres Contra El Cancer on Saturday and told eonline.com she feels inspired by her work with the children of the Padres Contra El Cáncer organization.

Looking absolutely gorgeous in a strapless black satin gown with a fitted bodice and a flirty flared above-the-knee skirt, Eva had her chocolate brown hair pulled up into a sleek updo courtesy of her longtime Hair Master, Ken Paves.

I was lucky to chat with Ken shortly after he coiffed Eva's hair for "The Qualifiers" party.  He explained he was going for a "chic looped chignon style updo with very clean and classic lines" to show off the beautiful neckline of her sexy black gown splashed with ribbons of white along the sweetheart style top and along the edges of her flared skirt.

Ken swept one side of Eva's hair off her stunning face from a deep side part with beautiful volume built along the crown.  The sides were pulled sleekly back into a perfect chignon which rested just above Eva's neck in back.  She complemented the clean and elegant lines of the chignon with silver hoop earrings which worked perfectly with her gown.

Not only was Eva a vision of beauty, she was opening her huge heart for Padres Contra El Cancer.  The Desperate Housewife hosted a celebrity scavenger hunt and car rally benefiting her favorite charity on Saturday which kicked off with a special breakfast on Saturday, May 2nd at The Roosevelt Hotel.

The actual rally, at which Eva dropped the flag to kick it off, started at noon from the parking lot of the famous hotel.  The race ended back at the hotel by the pool.  An evening Winner's Circle Red Carpet and banquet was held in the evening.

Eva told eonline.com she "feels inspired by her work with the children of the Padres Contra El Cáncer organization."

When asked if it made her want to adopt one of the children, she replied, "Of course! Every time I work with the kids from Padres, my heart just explodes with happiness and joy because they're so inspiring," Eva said.

Eva continued "they're resilient and they're hopeful and they're happy. They're amazing human beings, and to go through something like that and yet still be as strong as they [are], it really inspires me. I could only wish to have children as strong as the kids I've worked with."

Eva was present for all of the Rally Events starting with "The Qualifiers" and ending with The Winner's Circle on Saturday evening.  She inspired her many celebrity friends, including Ken Paves, to work hard to raise money for the charity and to participate in the rally.

Eva Longoria Parker is truly an inspiration in her work with these children with cancer and her big heart shows no bounds.

After you have removed hot rollers from you hair let the curls set for a minute. Use fingers or pick to carefully arrange curls so they don't droop.
