Last week, actress Marlee Matlin--and recent best-selling author of "I'll Scream Later"--was honored with her very own "Hollywood Walk of Fame" Star. If anyone is keeping score, it is the 2,383th Star. Amongst all her accomplishments in film and television, the most outstanding is that she was the youngest winner of the Best Actress Academy Award.Later that day, following her induction ceremony on Hollywood Blvd, she hosted the fundraiser "Dancing Under the Stars" along with good friend, actor Henry Winkler. The event was also to congratulate Marlee for her new Hollywood Walk of Fame Star. Many celebs were on hand, including several former "Dancing With the Stars" contestants like Shannon Elizabeth and Kristi Yamaguchi.

Both David and myself were humbled and honored that she chose one of our designs to wear to a red carpet event. She told me that since "I had SO MUCH LUCK wearing your gown at last year's Oscars and got so much press for it...I wanted to wear NIKOLAKI again!" We love you Marlee! You looked elegant and gorgeous.
