Well the 2018 Tony Awards are tomorrow night, but I still have quite a few wishes left for stars that we are expecting to see on the red carpet at this years event. The glamour of the Tony Awards red carpet continues to get better and better and I am really excited to see what everyone that is planning to descend upon the red carpet at Radio City Music Hall will wear tomorrow night!Bette Midler took home the Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical award last year for her performance in the revival of Hello, Dolly! while we wait for her name to be announced as a presenter this year I decided to just add her to the list this year. I would love to see Bette on the red carpet because she knows how to really do glam on the red carpet. She has great friends in fashion including Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors and either could whip up a custom gown for her to rock on this red carpet tomorrow night. I looked at both the runways and the online racks for a gown from either designer for Bette to wear, but there wasn’t one I was thrilled with. Instead I decided to snatch a very sleek Greta Constantine gown off the virtual racks of FarFetch. I think that Bette would look very chic wearing a modified version of this black and white off-the-shoulder column gown. I think that the shape of this long sleeve gown is very Bette, but I feel like she would want the gown to have more of a sleeve covering her shoulder than it was originally designed with. While we are used to seeing Bette in dazzling sequins or bright colors I think that this sleek gown would be a really gorgeous moment for her. Add a full whispy lob, defined eyes, rose pink lips, and a pair of black Marc Jacobs platform block heel sandals and I think that this would be a really great moment. Carey Mulligan is going to be one of the a-list presenters tomorrow night and I am really interested in seeing what she will bring to the red carpet. The past Tony nominee has been really giving me looks to get interested in recently and I feel like she will continue to bring it tomorrow night on the 2018 Tony Awards red carpet. I immediately went to one of Carey’s go to designer, Dior, and their newest collection for the perfect gown for her to wear tomorrow night. I feel like she would be absolutely be drawn to this black and eggshell Christian Dior Cruise 2019 strapless tea length gown which features a sweetheart neckline, defined waist, and a tiered a-line skirt. This very 50’s inspired gown is gorgeous and I think that with Carey’s no muss no fuss vintage inspired style that it would be a really beautiful moment. I would leave the wide leather belt at home. Instead opting to style the gown with a sleek updo, simple defined eyes, red lips, a black and gold Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ crystal embellished clutch, a pair of black and gold Jimmy Choo ‘Emily’ platform stiletto sandals, and vintage 18k gold set Bulgari diamond and emerald earrings.Tony Award winning actress Jessie Mueller is nominated again this year for Best Performance by a Lead Actress in a Musical for her performance in the revival of Carousel! and I am really excited to see what she will select for the red carpet tomorrow night. Jessie has a very feminine sense of style and we have seen her wear modern princess gowns from Randi Rahm and Christian Siriano in years past. Something in my soul says that Christian is once again going to dress the actress, but if I were to pick a gown right off the runway I would love to see Jessie wearing this blue velvet and rust red sequin Sachin + Babi Fall 2018 RTW strapless column gown. This is a darker, moodier approach to glamour is incredibly sexy and would allow us to see a different side of Jessie’s style than we are used to seeing. I think that with a romantic updo, defined eyes, dark red lips, a pair of navy Paul Andrew ‘Zenadia’ pumps, and Martin Katz rose cut diamond triangle drop earrings that this would be Jessie’s best Tony Awards red carpet moment yet.Jessie’s Carousel! co-star Lindsay Mendez is also nominated for a Tony this year in the Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical category. She is the one in this list that I have the least knowledge of her style. So I went shopping knowing her body shape and picked a gown I think would flatter her figure perfectly with this red Carolina Herrera sleeveless evening gown which features a cascading side ruffle detail, v-neckline, wrap style a-line skirt. This gown is very beautiful and classically glamorous and I definitely think that Lindsay would really be able to give us a very elegant moment on the red carpet. Add a pair of red satin Aquazzura ‘Forever Marilyn’ pumps, old Hollywood waves over one shoulder, defined eyes, matching red lips, and a pair of Amrapali victorian inspired diamond and carved ruby drop earrings and I definitely think that Lindsay would be able to hold her own against some of the red carpet heavyweights who will also be in attendance tomorrow night. Uzo Aduba has never been nominated for a Tony, but she was a presenter in 2016 where she wore an almost casual Juan Carlos Obando maxi dress for the red carpet. I want to see Uzo really go for the glam tomorrow night. She has the potential to be one of my favorite stars of the night and its because of that that I decided to customize a gown inspired by a dress off the Prabal Gurung Fall 2018 RTW collection runway. I have loved this two tone purple sequin cocktail dress which a drapes asymmetrical neckline, side split, and a slight a-line skirt since it first came down the runway in February, but I feel like it would need some modifications to be perfect for Uzo to wear tomorrow night. I would love to see Prabal take this gown and slice the thick ribbon strap off and then drape the back along the same diagonal line as the bodice of the gown and of course take the skirt to the floor. I think that because the gown is completely covered in sequins that this would be a really statement making moment for Uzo to bring to the red carpet so I wouldn’t over do it with a dramatic train following the gown. Finishing the look with a sleek updo, smokey eyes, red lips, a pair of black Gianvito Rossi ankle strap sandals, and Pasquale Bruni diamond and amethyst statement earrings would really ensure that this is one of Uzo’s best red carpet moments ever!
The 2018 Tony Awards will take place on Sunday June 10, 2018.
