Ellen Barkin joined a host of stars on the red carpet yesterday evening for the 2012 Tony Awards held at the Beacon Theatre in New York City.

For the past five years that I have been blogging, I don’t think I’ve ever seen Ellen wear a designer other than L’Wren Scott.

On this occasion she wore a purple Chantilly lace long-sleeved gown from the designer’s Fall 2012 collection.

Fred Leighton jewels, plus a turquoise eel clutch and matching turquoise sandals, both by L’Wren Scott, accessorized her look with a updo and glossy lips providing the finishing touches.
