Last night three stars shone brighter than the others for me.  Top rank goes to Hilary Swank who, in her nude bejweled Versace gown, bedazzled.  The fit was beautiful and her loose tresses were a perfect complement.Sofia Vergara was red hot in her cool jewel tone gown by Roberto Cavalli.  Who does sexy better than Roberto or Sofia?  Put them together and the combination is a knock-out.

Mila Kunis looked just the right amount of edgy, young and lovely in this  belted painterly red chiffon gown by Alexander McQueen.

I can hardly wait for the Academy Awards show to complete my fashion trifecta!
