It’s been said in recent years that the Tony Awards have gone more and more “Hollywood.” As in, the actual awards go to Hollywood stars doing stints on Broadway, and that Tony voters will vote for the biggest “name” in a category, rather than who gave the best performance. So to have the Tony Awards become more of a production overall, with major A-list celebrities stopping by to present and walk the red carpet and all of that. You can judge for yourself from the winners list this year – there didn’t seem to be one big story, like Hamilton or The Book of Mormon. Anyway, let’s talk about fashion. Kerry Washington was there as a presenter, and she wore one of the best ensembles of the night – this Versace jumpsuit with a train/mullet is actually great.
Melissa Benoist in Dior. This is actually perfect on her – very princessy, yet low-key.
Amy Schumer attended the awards show with her new husband, Chris Fischer. They look… fine. Not really notable. Her dress is Brandon Maxwell.
I keep forgetting that Claire Danes is pregnant! She and Hugh Darcy attended, and Claire wore this animal-print maternity dress with extra ruffles. It’s Valentino. I mean… I’ll give her a pass, because God knows how difficult it was for her to find a cute maternity dress.
Katharine McPhee in Zac Posen. Ew. Overworked and dated.
I wonder if Rachel Brosnahan knew that the Tonys-carpet backdrop was going to be red and pink flowers? If she had known, do you think she would have chosen this Dolce & Gabbana? She looks like part of the flower wall!
Tiffany Haddish in Michael Kors. She looks awesome. One of my favorite looks of the night!
Anna Wintour in Prada. I’m absolutely shocked that she’s in yellow!
