2017 Tony Awards Red Carpet Roundup

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.

2017 CFDA Fashion Awards Red Carpet Roundup

A number of stars put their best fashionable foot forwards on Monday (June 5) at the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards red carpet.

Jamie Alexander: I love the armour-like details on this Marc Bouwer dress, particularly the gorgeous sleeves. Jamie’s up-do looks suitably fierce, as are the beautiful Jennifer Meyer earrings, which drop like swords. The Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and gold clutch are suitably subtle too.

Meg Ryan: Understated yet opulent Meg’s Christian Siriano gown flowed perfectly. As effortless as this look was it risked being a tad vanilla. Monique Péan jewels did little to save the look.

Janelle Monae In Christian Siriano – 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards

Janelle Monae was seeing things in black and white at the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 5) in New York City.

Although she was rocking her signature, monochromatic colour palette, I love how she reinvented her look with this Christian Siriano Resort 2018 ensemble. Gone were the hair jewels, the hyped-up embellishment, and the high-low silhouettes. In their place, an all-new cool-girl attitude took over.

The asymmetric, half-jacket was rendered with precious refinement here, creating a creatively composed look rather than a haphazard, try-hard one. And, I love the decision to go for pants as opposed to the skirt.

An Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch smartly reflected the striped motif, with Lorraine Schwartz jewels adding sparkle and Karen Walker ‘Disco Circus’ sunglasses serving up funky spunk.

No one could wear this like Janelle, but she sure made me want to try.

Debra Messing In Christian Siriano – 28th Annual GLAAD Media Awards

There were two red heads on the red carpet for the the 28th Annual GLAAD Media Awards on Saturday (May 6) in New York City, as Debra Messing joined AnnaSophia Robb.

When I saw Debra in this lurex Christian Siriano Fall 2017 jumpsuit, I wanted to blame the photographer for the poor angle, but truth be told the proportions are way off.

Forget blaming the dragging fabric on the floor, the OTT earrings or the lack of belt to hold all this together, this wasn’t right for Debra from the jump.

Coco Rocha In Christian Siriano – 11th Annual DKMS Big Love Gala

Coco Rocha was on the red carpet at the 11th Annual DKMS Big Love Gala in New York City on Thursday (April 27).

While the supermodel put her pose to work for her, it couldn’t help save this Christian Siriano gown.

While the glittery, silver embellishment looked a bit gaudy, it was really the proportions of the dress that were most problematic. The bodice-to-skirt ratio made even Coco’s statuesque frame appear shortened.

I did love the edgy sultriness of her beauty look, even if it was at odds with the dress.
