‘The Color Purple’ Broadway Opening Night

'The Color Purple' Broadway Opening Night

A host of stars turned out to celebrate ‘The Color Purple’ Broadway Opening Night on Thursday (December 10) in New York City; supporting leading ladies Jennifer Hudson and Danielle Brooks.

Jennifer Hudson: I’m sure this gown needs no introduction, from the jewel tone and architectural design this is classic Zac Posen.

Laverne Cox: The ‘OITNB’ actress was serving up a sultry retro vibe wearing a fringed Tom Ford gown styled with an Edie Parker clutch. Both the pose and the styling is selling this look to me.

Uzo Aduba: Also decked out in Zac Posen, this pretty pink dress may suffer from the odd crease here and there, but the colour, style and styling have me interested.

Patina Miller: While I like the colour of this Wai Ming jumpsuit, that nude panel at the waist is distracting. I wish it has been flesh coloured, or non-existent.

Danielle Brooks: The ‘OITNB’ actress never met a fairytale gown she didn’t love. This Jovani gown strikes the right note both in style and Fall-like mood.

    Laverne looks fantastic! I like Patina’s outfit, but don’t think she wears it particularly well.

    I like them all; the subtle flaws in a couple of the ensembles (Patina’s waist, Uzo’s twee-factor) don’t detract from a very well-dressed red carpet showing.

    Patina in this bunch.

    I like Jennifer’s dress but Patina looks better.

    Only Laverne looks good here and I am choosing to ignore her hair . I agree with Rebecca Z above about Jennifer Hudson. It really is a shame that for a major moment in her career, she wears this ill fitting dress.

    Pretty basic round up. I only like Patina.

    Laverne is the best dressed, not a thing I would change. Uno looks good but the dress is a little “precious”, and the fabric isn’t helping.

    I like Uzo Aduba.

    I only like Patina Miller. I can easily ignore the nude panel.

    Jennifer’s boobs ruin 95% of what she wears. They never look flattering. That being said I do love the gown and it’s beautiful color.

    I love Laverne’s fringed dress but hate the hair/makeup.

    Uzo’s shoes are a bummer here but I love the dress, gorgeous color on her.

    I like Laverne’s look.

    Sadly, to me, all of these have potential but there’s also something wrong with each. Don’t really like them.

  14. Dee December 11, 2015 at 5:10 pm #

    I only like Danielle’s look.

  15. Rebecca Z December 11, 2015 at 5:04 pm #

    I agree with Alina on Jennifer Hudson’s gown. This is such an important moment for her, it is truly a shame that the dress (and her undergarments) don’t serve her better. Such a lovely and talented woman…sad to see her rumpled and droopy.

    Patina would have been my favourite here if the pants had been better fitted.

    Laverne’s look is simple, but beautiful.

    Danielle looks like an autumn fairy.

    I dislike the fabric of the Zac Posen dresses. While I can look past it in Uzo’s case because the dress fits her well and the styling is on point, the same cannot be said in Jennifer’s case – the fit around the bust is bad (often an issue with Jennifer) and the overall feeling is very deja vu.

    Lavern, Uzo and Patina look FANTASTIC.

    Jennifer’s dress is failing at the bust, actually the entire gown is a fail and Danielle…I see no fashion in this gown but I love her smile.
