WOW! How did I miss this earlier? This dress is smashing and the review is so helpful. You look stunning!

Wow, you look stunning in your fabulous dress!! I love the color and the low (but not *too* low) back. I agree, much better than Hilary Swank's version! And your DH cracks me up :o) Congratulations to him on his award!

You look like the star, that colour is gorgeous on you. Wow and sultry, like Rosalind Russell. Much better than Hilary Swank's number IMO
