The glamour of the 2017 Tony Awards red carpet continued with a number of stars of stage and screen, who all converged in New York City on Sunday evening (June 11).
Denée Benton: The darling ingénue was dressed in an equally charming Oscar de la Renta Resort 2018 frock that turned over a chic new leaf with its whimsical flutter of embellished foliage. Styled with Oscar de la Renta ‘Romy’ sandals and Fred Leighton jewelry, the look was at the height of fresh sophistication and just so happened to coordinate with the rose and grass wall behind her. Such a stylish coincidence.
Condola Rashad: Making a dynamic entrance, Condola’s Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood Spring 2017 dress had the signature sculpted bodice and silhouette we’d expect. The impactful addition of the bold metallic and orange paneling, plus her sleek long ponytail, created a strong, modern look.
Patina Miller: Outfitting her baby bump in bright fuchsia pink, Patina wore a Roland Mouret that was precision fitted and formed to her, as we’d expect from the designer. A silver Judith Leiber clutch and Graziela Gems completed the look.
Stephanie Block: Before taking to the stage to perform with the case of ‘Falsettos,’ Stephanie was on the red carpet in a soft-gray J. Mendel gown that featured a lovely, fluidity of silhouette. However, I didn’t love the shaping effect at the bust with awkward line between the ruching and embellishment.
Uma Thurman: With an entirely effortless sense of casually glamorous allure, Uma used simplicity to her advantage—plus a dash of sparkle in Fred Leighton jewels.
Allison Janney: The enticing vibrancy of this candy-apple-red Cristina Ottaviano gown was striking, but what took away from the flattering fit were the creases in the fabric that compromised some of its lustre.
Michelle Wilson: Also channeling a bold red outlook, Michelle wore a Hakaan dress that seemed a smidge too snug through the bodice and waist yet the drama of the long train helped direct attention away. Manolo Blahnik heels, a Calvin Klein clutch, and Gumuchian jewels completed the look.
Sutton Foster: Despite its tonal embellishment, this Christian Siriano gown fell a bit flat on Sutton and created a rather mature look for her in partnership with her upswept hair. She accessorised with Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch and David Webb jewels.
Kate Baldwin: Crinkles galore pervaded this Cristina Ottaviano gown, which also translated as rather dated.
Leslie Odom, Jr and Nicolette Robinson: Usually, the girl steals the show, but Leslie was the one who stood out here for his sleek Zegna suit and its intriguing textural effect in the jacket. Bally shoes completed his look. Nicolette was no shrinking violet, though, in her Romona Keveza gown that I loved for its minimalist, peplum silhouette and rich sapphire hue.
