You can do things like that with aStickyPostOrderER 
E.g. Selecting the 'supersticky' and setting a limit of 1 for each of 
these categories will show the most recent post from those categories 
before anything else, and if on your front page you have a custom query 
calling only three posts, tadaa!
- though they wount be in a fixed order, the most recent post will be at 
the top.

If you wanted to add customised styling you could do that by checking 
category in the loop.

Hope it helps
