Audra McDonald In Escada – 2014 Tony Awards

Audra McDonald In Escada - 2014 Tony Awards

Audra McDonald took home the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play for ‘Lady Day’ at the 68th Annual Tony Awards held at Radio City Music Hall on Sunday (June 8) in New York City, making her the event’s most decorated actress with her sixth win putting her ahead of five-times winners Angela Lansbury and the late Julie Harris.

The actress wore an Escada Spring 2014 strapless gown beautifully rendered with a red flower print and black embroidery.

I love the casual relaxed charm of this look; however, I am missing the black waistband we saw on the model. This feature would have given the look definition and helped distract from the fact that the bodice was slightly ill-fitted.

    I miss the black waistband too, but she has that beautiful “winner’s glow” that it’s hard for me not to like this look.

    Gorgeous gown but I’m missing the waistband too.

    This appeared much more flattering on Audra on stage when she accepted her award. I didn’t miss the belt then, but in these photos the gown is screaming for one.
