Victoria Beckham inspired by Eva Longoria

Victoria Beckham thinks Eva Longoria is "inspiring".

The 41-year-old fashion designer struck up a friendship with the former 'Desperate Housewives' actress when she and husband David spent five years living in Los Angeles and there's no one she regards as a better friend.

She gushed: "I have known Eva for such a long time and she is my closest friend.

"I adore her. She is an inspiring, incredible human being."

Meanwhile, Eva is very "proud" of her friend and loves wearing her creations.

She said: "I am so proud of Victoria.

"Every time I put on one of her dresses I say, 'I can't believe you created this.'

"They are beautiful and she has evolved so much in her life to become this powerhouse of a designer."

The 40-year-old actress is also in awe of her friend - who has four children with David - and her achievements.

She told Britain's HELLO! magazine: "We have a lot in common. I am not a mother but she is an amazing mom and an amazing wife and she balances it all so beautifully.

"She is ambitious, driven, self-disciplined and has accomplished a lot in her life.

"And now she has taken on this responsibility if charity work. She really dedicates herself to it and has done many trips to Africa and Ethiopia."
