Cakes reign but a Day.

Candice Bergen

Here is a tribute to most beautiful actress Candice Bergen.
Candice Patricia Bergen (born in 1946) is an American actress and former fashion model. Her mother, Frances Bergen (née Westerman), was a Powers model who was known professionally as Frances Westcott and a very good singer (see Great Female Singers: Frances Bergen). Her paternal grandparents were Swedish-born immigrants who anglicized their surname, which was originally Berggren ("mountain branch").
She won five Emmy Awards and two Golden Globe Awards for her ten seasons as the title character on the CBS sitcom Murphy Brown (1988–98). She is also known for her role as Shirley Schmidt on the ABC drama Boston Legal (2005–08). She was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for Starting Over (1979), and for the BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Gandhi (1982).
Bergen began her career as a fashion model and appeared on the front cover of Vogue magazine before she made her screen debut in the 1966 film The Group, which delicately touched on the then-forbidden subject of lesbianism. She went on to star in The Sand Pebbles (1966) (with Steve McQueen). In 1968 she played the leading female role in The Magus, a British mystery film also starring Michael Caine and Anthony Quinn. She starred in the highly controversial Western Soldier Blue (1970), a worldwide hit but a failure in its homeland, perhaps because of its unflattering portrayal of the U.S. Cavalry. She had roles in two other Western films including The Hunting Party (1971) and Bite the Bullet (1975), both of which starred Gene Hackman. Bergen appeared in Mike Nichols' provocative Carnal Knowledge (1971) and the Burt Reynolds romantic comedy Starting Over (1979), for which she received Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for best supporting actress.
In 1975 she starred with Sean Connery in The Wind and the Lion. She was the love interest of Ryan O'Neal in the Love Story sequel, Oliver's Story (1979), and portrayed a best-selling author in Rich and Famous (1981) with Jacqueline Bisset. She made her Broadway debut in the 1984 play Hurlyburly. From 2002 to 2004, she appeared in three episodes of the HBO series Sex and the City. Her other film roles include Miss Congeniality (2000), Sweet Home Alabama (2002), The Women (2008), and Bride Wars (2009). In the 2010s, she returned to Broadway to star in the revivals of The Best Man (2012) and Love Letters (2014).
A frequent host on NBC's Saturday Night Live, she was the first woman to host the show and the first host to do a second show. She was also the first woman to join the Five-Timers Club, when she hosted for the fifth time in 1990. Bergen guest-starred on The Muppet Show in its first year, appearing in several skits. 
She has also made guest appearances on many other TV shows, including Seinfeld (as herself playing Murphy Brown), Law & Order, Family Guy, Will & Grace (playing herself), and Sex and the City, where she played Enid Frick, Carrie Bradshaw's editor at Vogue. 
In 2010, she appeared in a one-night only concert semi staged reading of Evening Primrose by Stephen Sondheim.
Enjoy Candice Bergen's great beauty and class!
