- I am playing a bit of a game of catch up so you get two new Tony Awards wishes today. I can’t really say how excited I am for this years red carpet it is going to be the best year yet, I can already tell. The sat of presenters and performers hail from the best of Broadway and Hollywood combined. This year the show will return to the famed Radio City Music Hall and when you have such a grand stage the stars tend to go big or go home.
Couture isn’t usually the first thing I think of when I think of the Tony Awrds red carpet, but sometimes the a-listers from Hollywood break out the best of French fine fashion for Broadway’s biggest night. Anna Kendrick is one of this years a-list presenters and I think that she could be one to bring couture to the red carpet at the Tony Awards this year. I have wanted to see this sapphire blue Elie Saab Fall 2016 Couture collection on a red carpet since it first debuted on the runway almost a year ago. I do think that Anna would look ever so chic wearing this gown on the red carpet. The bold blue would stand out out beautifully against a backdrop of red roses if they design the step and repeat the same way they did last year. This gown would definitely hold its own against some of the beautiful looks that the nominees will undoubtedly be wearing. Add a chic up do, smokey eye, red lip, adding diamond cluster earrings, silver strappy sandals would really make this a beautiful moment for Anna.Condola Rashad is nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Play for her role in A Dolls House , Part 2. When I was searching the collections for the perfect looks for all of the Broadway stars to wear I saw this gold and black striped Monique Lhuillier Fall 2017 RTW strapless gown which features a black velvet neckline and an a-line skirt would be perfect for Condola to wear on the red carpet at the Tony’s on Sunday night. The gown is extremely glamorous but edgy all at the same time and I think that based on the stature I have seen Condola deliver in pictures from other events that she would carry this gown beautifully on the red carpet. A modern process moment indeed. Rounding the look out with a chic up do, red lip, diamond cluster earrings, a black clutch, and a pair of black sandals would ensure that this is a beautiful feminine and edgy moment.
Oslo star Jennifer Ehle is nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play, which is going to be one of the toughest categories of the night. There is a lot of a-list star power in that category with Sally Field, Cate Blanchett, and Laura Linney so Jennifer is going to have to try really hard to really hang with the other ladies in her category fashion wise on the red carpet. I went for model regality for Jennifer to wear on this years red carpet with this red Georges Hobeika Spring 2017 RTW long sleeve gown which features a column skirt, dramatic cape like train, long sleeves, cold shoulder detail, sheer inserts, and a scoop neck. I think that this gown would make it so Jennifer is able to hold her own against the likes of Laura Linney and Sally Field, no one can usually hold a candle to Cate. To ensure that this a beautiful look I would have Jennifer rock the gown with a chic up do, lined eye, nude lip, gold sandals, and a gold collar necklace.Seven time a Tony Award nominated and two time winning Broadway diva Patti Lupone is nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical this year for her portrayal of beauty tycoon Helena Rubenstein in War Paint. A woman with the reputation that Patti has needs a gown that lives up to the drama and presence that her voice has. The first gown that I thought of was this amazing silver sequined stripe Malan Breton Fall 2017 RTW off the shoulder mermaid gown which features long sleeves and a dramatic train. I remover seeing this gown come down the runway during New York Fashion Week and being simply captivated by how glamorous it is and I think that Patti would the the perfect person to nringnitntonoifenonnthebred carpet and the atonysbarebthe perfect red carpet for her to do so. A chic pixie, lined eye, red lip, diamond cluster earrings, a dazzling diamond collar necklace, and a pair of silver sandals would ensure that it is beautiful moment for Patti, that lives up to her Broadway diva reputation.
Rounding out today Tony wishes is the beautiful Sarah Paulson, who will be one of the many presenters Sunday evening. During her awards season run earlier this year for The People vs. O.J. Simpson Sarah delivered a bunch of really great looks but since then I have seen her faltering. I would love to see Sarah really wow me on Sunday at the Tony Awards. I think that if she stepped onto the red carpet wearing this beautiful ivory and yellow Valentino Spring 2017 Couture teal length gown which features cap sleeves and braid embroidery. This gown screams Sarah and I think is the perfect look for Sarah to wear as a presenter. I don’t think that everyone who attends the Tony’s has to wear a gown and I think that Sarah is more likely to wear a tea length dress. The chic gown would be elevated with a gold clutch, smokey eye, nude lip, gold sandals, and a pair of dainty drop earrings.
The 2017 Tony Awards will take place Sunday June 11, 2017.
