I guess I've just known people who really do completely let themselves go at some point. Maybe no one you know ever gave up wearing makeup or doing their hair, but I know people who have at least for awhile at some point in their life.
It isn't just that her eggs fertilized, it can happen for any number of reasons, but I've seen people that don't always every single day of their life keep it all pulled together. I'm not sure how much for me would be "just" she had kids, but the whole loss of how I thought my life would play out doesn't always lead people to keeping all parts of their life (including appearance) all put together all the time. She's got some part of trying to pretend life didn't change with some part giving up even trying anymore. With a bit of delusion tossed in for good measure.
One of the problems with Eva is I think she's so cute even without all the glamor and glitz I think they did have to exaggerate the frump more than they might for some other people to make things visually dramatic enough.
ETA: Had she had kids when being able to afford a chef and a nanny and maid and all of that I think she'd still be wearing makeup. Losing all that at the same time as making a family could lead to some frump.
