Bernadette Peters In Donna Karan – 2012 Tony Awards

After feeling traumatized by Amanda Seyfried’s look on the red carpet at the 2012 Tony Awards, held at the Beacon Theatre in New York City last night, Bernadette Peters injected some much needed glamour to this event.

The actress wore a Donna Karan purple strapless gown, which appeared to be inspired by Look 41 from the Spring 2012 collection.

Her mermaid gown with a tiered hemline and folded detail on the bodice was styled with her signature red ringlets in an updo with tendrils framing her face, David Webb jewels plus a gold box clutch.

Now this is what the Tony Awards is all about.

Amanda Seyfried In Givenchy – 2012 Tony Awards

My heart sank when I saw Amanda Seyfried on the red carpet at the 2012 Tony Awards, held at the Beacon Theatre in New York City this evening.

This look will give me nightmares.

I don’t think I have ever disliked a look worn by Amanda Seyfried, but as the saying goes, “there’s a first time for everything”.

The actress donned a Givenchy Fall 2012 purple slip dress with gold embellished details which was accented with an orange belt.

Seeing this look on someone as gorgeous and flawless as Amanda proves my theory, this collection was always going to be difficult to translate well on the red carpet.

What was she thinking? And the Tony Awards of all occasions.

Apart from those Givenchy sandals, I can’t find one good thing to say about this look.

Can you?

Fred Leighton jewels and an orange Givenchy clutch accessorized her look.

Jessica Chastain In Marios Schwab – 2012 Tony Awards

I was just about to call it a night until Jessica Chastain caught my eye.

The actress dazzled on the red carpet in New York City this evening for the 66th Annual Tony Awards, held at the Beacon Theatre.

Dressed in a nude sheer Marios Schwab Fall 2012 long-sleeve dress, I’m sure this look is going to bring up much debate.

Enriched with Swarovski Elements, this embellished frock could’ve gone two ways:

Jessica could’ve lined the dress losing all the mystery, intrigue and possibly even the details.

Or, she could’ve worn the dress as presented on the runway with the built-in corset for support.

I’m glad she chose the latter.

It may not be to be to everyone’s liking, but I find that Jessica doesn’t take enough risks on the red carpet.

This one paid off for me.

Silver satin Giuseppe Zanotti ankle strap peep-toes completed the look.

Love or loathe?

Jennifer Damiano In Reem Acra – 2011 Tony Awards

Best Newcomer Award
I have never featured Jennifer Damiano on my site before, but she caught my eye at the 2011 Tony Awards which was held at the Beacon Theatre in New York City last night.

Firstly, because she instantly reminded me of Anne Hathaway with her brunette locks, porcelain skin and wide smile.

Secondly, because she was luminescent in her Reem Acra Resort 2011 dress.

The canary yellow dress with a beaded overlay has a yellow satin waistband.

A lot of you are not fond of this type of tea-length dress, which is a bit longer on Jennifer than the model, but I can find no fault with this look.

With a wavy updo and red hot lips, Jennifer completed her look with Charlotte Olympia pumps.

Actually I would’ve preferred matching sandals to pumps, but a gorgeous look nonetheless.

Catherine Zeta Jones In Elie Saab – 2011 Tony Awards

Best Dressed Award
Catherine Zeta Jones was a presenter at the 2011 Tony Awards which was held at the Beacon Theatre in New York City last night. Which will explain why didn’t hit the red carpet.

She looked breath-taking wearing an Elie Saab gown which was inspired by the Fall 2011 collection.

The red long sleeve embellished plunging gown had a sexy twist with an exposed back.

It’s so great to see Catherine looking supremely gorgeous.

I’ve always been a great admirer of her flawless style and regal like aura.

On this evidence she should wear Elie Saab more often.

A tight bun and Van Cleef & Arpels completed her look.
