Here we are! It is my final set of wishes before the red carpet tomorrow night. Just for more ladies stand between me and my Tony awards viewing party! So I’m not going to put a whole paragraph out there again about why I love the Tony Awards red carpet and just get to the wishes. Back in 2015 Bernadette Peters made Zac Posen’s dreams come true by bringing him as her date to the Tony Awards and wearing a peridot green satin gown from his collection. I went back to the designer for Bernadette to wear this year as she takes to the red carpet ahead of presenting tomorrow night. When I read that Bernadette was presenting this blush Zac Posen Resort 2019 gown which features a cuffed off-the-shoulder neckline, pleated construction, and a cascading pleat sleeve immediately came to mind. It is sexy yet modest and I definitely think that Bernie would be totally be about rocking this gown on the red carpet. Add a pair of blush pink Gianvito Rossi ‘Simone’ feather detail slingback pumps, her signature tight curls, defined eyes, bright pink lips, and Harry Winston pink sapphire and diamond drop earrings and I definitely think that I would love this ensemble on Bernadette.Claire Danes is very pregnant and presenting tomorrow night at the 2018 Tony Awards. Some of her red carpet lewks recently have made her bump very prominent and others have made me think “wait isn’t she preggers?” and I wonder what her look tomorrow night will be. I feel like this gunmetal grey Monique Lhuillier Fall 2018 RTW metallic embroidered draped gown which features a one shoulder silhouette with a twist detail at the waist and a front slit would drape beautifully over her baby bump. I believe that it would be another of those “wait” moments. It would be absolutely glamorous and I think that with old Hollywood waves, smokey eyes, red lips, a pair of black and gold Monique Lhuillier pearl detail stiletto sandals, and vintage Van Cleef & Arpels diamond and cultured pearl drop earrings that this would be an absolutely dramatic and glamorous look for Claire to rock on the red carpet. American Idol winner and former SMASH star Katherine McPhee will be presenting at the 2018 Tony Awards tomorrow night. She is currently staring in Waitress so it makes sense that she will be one of the many stars on hand to hand out the spinning Tony Awards. I went through so many ideas when it came to the perfect look for Katherine to rock on the red carpet tomorrow night and when I saw this lime Sachin & Babi Noir “Bonnie” column gown with a draped bow detail one shoulder neckline I knew it would be a great moment on the red carpet for the actress. It is a bright, glamorous statement and I honestly don’t think many could make this color work on the red carpet, but I do think it would compliment Katherine’s tan skin tone. I think that with a loose updo, defined eyes, red lips, vintage gold Judith Leiber Couture crystal and tassel detail clutch, champagne gold crystal Rene Caovilla metallic snakeskin ankle wrap sandals, and a pair of Kiki McDonough tourmaline, diamond, and peridot earrings would really ensure that this look is absolutely beautiful from head to toe. And last but certainly not least we have the star who I think will ultimately take home the Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Play trophy Noma Dumezweni. Noma was nominated for an Olivier Award for originating the role of Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child when it opened on the West End in London and now she holds a Tony nomination for bring the role to Broadway. While she didn’t win the Olivier Award I think she just may take home the Tony trophy. For her red carpet look I decided to have Noma represent a British designer on the Tony’s red carpet. I feel like Noma would be the perfect person to step into the archive room at Ong Oaj Pairam and snatch this dark (almost black) wine floral printed gown which features an off the shoulder sweetheart neckline, an a-line draped skirt, and a very dramatic train out of the darkness and put it on this hallowed theater red carpet. This is a moody yet feminine take on glamour I think is something that Noma would look absolutely gorgeous wearing on the red carpet. A sleek updo, defined eyes, nude lips, black Gianvito Rossi braided suede sandals, and a pair of statement IVY New York rhodolite, ruby, and diamond drop earrings all would ensure that Noma has a winning look on tomorrow nights red carpet.
The 2018 Tony Awards will take place on Sunday June 10, 2018.
