Best of the 2016 Tony Awards Red Carpet Part 1

13 Jun

The 2016 Tony Awards celebrated all things Broadway last night in New York City* and this red carpet event has become one of my favorites. Mixing bold color with pattern was a big trend and Part 1 of this round-up is awash with dresses (and suits) of this kind.

*While also touching upon the horrific violence and mass murder at a gay club in Orlando in the early hours of Sunday morning. Writing about fashion after such an event always feels somewhat glib, but the Tonys and musical theater has such strong ties to the LGBT community and this celebration shows the kind of inclusivity that theater offers. 

For a complete list of all Tony Award winners click here.Michelle Williams and Busy PhilippsBusy Philipps as Michelle Williams’ awards show date is one of my favorite traditions – ticks all those IRL bestie boxes- and both look stunning. Michelle Williams is wearing Louis Vuitton (of course) and her whole makeup/hair styling is very much like this 2013 campaign. As my own personal hair inspiration I am thrilled to see Williams going shorter again.

There’s a whole lot of different florals going as you will see when you scroll and I love Philipps’ take in a strapless pink Ingie Paris gown. Busy Philipps also has an Olympia Le-Tan book clutch, which is on my ultimate list. Busy has Jane Eyre (can also see it here); I would love The Bell Jar.Lupita Nyong'oAnother awards show red carpet triumph for Lupita Nyongo’o in a colorful Hugo Boss gown. Designer Jason Wu explained to Vogue that the look of the dress was inspired by Tetris; the sequins and 3-D textural effect is incredible.Lin-Manuel Miranda and Vanessa NadalAn emotional night was made even more so when Lin-Manuel Miranda delivered a sonnet that he had written yesterday in reaction to the senseless violence in Orlando.

Part of the sonnet was also dedicated to his wife Vanessa Nadal and her bespoke Edie Parker Hamilton clutch is as delightful as her beautiful paint splattered looking frock, which I love.Renee Elise GoldsberryKeeping on the Hamilton track and Tony winner Renée Elise Goldsberry pairs two of the night’s big trends – yellow and botanicals – with great success in Oscar de la Renta. Plus pockets. Lucy LiuMore pale yellow delights and I wonder Alicia Vikander’s Louis Vuitton Oscar dress has led to a bump in this shade (a dress I liked, but didn’t love). I prefer both Goldsberry’s and Lucy Liu’s Zuhair Murad take on this yellow tone and the floral detail here also adds to the dreamy texture.Cynthia ErivoCynthia Erivo won for The Color Purple and crushed it on the red carpet in a show stopping Roberto Cavalli gown. There is a lot of dress to work with and Erivo doesn’t let it overwhelm her. Also a good reminder that this Tony actress roundtable is every 100 emoji worth of your time.Daveed DiggsDaveed Diggs was another well deserving Hamilton winner and he took the guys suit game up a notch in Commes des Garcons. This patchwork/mixed texture choice is pattern clashing at its height and I think he looks great in a very hard to pull off lookJoan SmallsIn the best dress worn by a supermodel category Joan Smalls takes the prize in sparkly Altuzarra.Laura BenantiMore bold florals from Oscar de la Renta from nominee Laura Benanti and the rose bush backdrop is working wonders with all of these colorful frocks.Sophie OkonedoRounding off Part 1 with another botanical stunner with Sophie Okonedo in Zac Posen combining long sleeves with strapless and a really interesting silhouette.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

30 Dec

One last Behind the Insta-Scenes for 2015 and as you can probably gather there is not a lot of set action going on right now. Instead we have plenty of fun holiday hangouts, festive decorations and some red carpet treats because some of the Star Wars cast never stop working.

 

Taking the title of most relevant pop culture Christmas tree decoration. I want one.

 

And a closer runner up for this prize is Sarah Jessica Parker’s Alexander Hamilton bauble. I also want one of these.

 

Back to Star Wars and Carrie Brownstein and company have some very on point socks.

 

Daisy Ridley is back on premiere duty for The Force Awakens and as “Out of the Box” is concluding its Best of 2015 countdown this is the only place to shower praise on another excellent red carpet dress choice. This time Ridley has gone for super floral purple Jason Wu.

 

Because her hair looks really great and I spy a cape.

Having not realized Bobby Cannavale was on Instagram until this week I have to make up for it with this cracker paper crown double hat shot.

All the flames and hundred points emojis.

 

This color is incredible on Kether Donohue. As I’ve said before on many occasion cast members hanging out IRL is one of my fave things.

 

And again. This time OITNB hangouts.

 

Laverne Cox taking a moment to share this collection of magazine cover delights also makes me very happy.

 

Stunning ❤

 

Amy Schumer delivers on the excellent comedians #TBT front.

 

The star of Master of None and everything about this caption/photo is perfect.
