This is how it's done, folks. A striking color, a tiny bit of shimmer and a wild card just because why the hell not? (In case you didn't notice, her earrings are mismatched.)

Oscars SofiaVergara

As someone who is often found in some kind of busy lace tea dress...we'll give her the simple purple.

Oscars ReeseWitherspoon

Accidental twinning. But Tina inches out Reese on personal variety alone.
