Hilary Swank does daytime and red carpet dressing equally well.

Here is a perfect example, as Hilary looked very sophisticated when she attended the Etam fashion show held at Hotel Ritz in Paris yesterday, for the presentation of the new Natalia Vodianova collection.

The actress wore a short asymmetrical blue Elie Saab Fall 2009 dress with a coordinating blue clutch and black patent leather open-toe shoes which were both from the Elie Saab collection.

I bet a lot of you are glad she didn’t match her shoes to her dress and clutch.
