Victoria Beckham and Eva Longoria

Victoria Beckham makes alterations to Eva Longoria's gala dress

Victoria Beckham proved she's not just a hands-on designer, but a great friend, too, as she got down on her hands and knees to make alterations to her best friend's dress ahead of tonight's Global Gala Benefit.

Eva Longoria and Victoria have been good pals for several years, ever since the Beckhams moved to LA in 2007. In that time, The Desperate Housewives actress and the fashion designer have bonded over their shared love of fashion, and Victoria made Eva Harper's Godmother in 2011. So it makes sense that the 38-year old actress would call on her BFF to dress her for tonight's big London charity event, which Eva is chairing.

Dressed in top-to-toe black and barefoot, Victoria can be seen making alterations to the hem of Eva's floor-length black dress in the picture she posted to her Twitter account with the caption: 'Fitting ‪@EvaLongoria‬ for her ‪@GlobalGiftGala‬ in London tomorrow night ‪#globalgifters‬ x vb'

The high profile fundraising event aims to make a difference in the lives of countless children and women worldwide, by bringing together different organisations, people of influence and celebrities. This year's gala, which was organised by Ms Longoria, will benefit The Eva Longoria Foundation and Cauldwell Children, among others.

And, of course, Victoria will be there on the night to support her philanthropist friend. Let's hope those alterations get done in time...
