The stars were out in force for the 2011 MusiCares Person of the Year Tribute to Barbara Streisand, but as you would expect, none out-shined the matriarch of divatude and guest of honor Barbara!

The 68-year-old singer/songwriter/actress/director looked the part of this planet’s Queen of Entertainment wearing a regal black dress and matching black fur coat and walking arm-in-arm with the poster man for handsomosity, James Brolin:
