Red Carpet: 2018 Tony Award Nominees

Everyone really turned it out for the Tony’s this year! There were a few duds, but nothing heinous and most folks looked fab! Let’s dive into our nominees, but first let me just take a moment to acknowledge how AWESOME the Tony’s step and repeat is every year. Thank you, Anna Wintour!

If you gave me a million guesses, I never would have pegged this for Thom Browne. It’s an absolute showstopper. The fact that this is by the same person responsible for this nipple-tastic ode to sailing demonstrates true range.

How lovely is this!? I have had my doubts about the leadership at OdlR since his passing, but the last few collections were full of lovely and ethereal moments like this.

I have been off of Zac Posen lately – just haven’t been feeling anything too structural. But I love this – it’s so dramatic and romantic.

LaChanze in Sachin and Babi

LaChanze was nominated for her role as Donna Summer in the musical based on her life which, YES. She also looks fabulous in this.

Katrina Lenk in Georges Chakra

Katrina won for her much lauded performance in “The Band’s Visit” – a show I will likely never get to see now that it’s won 600 Tony’s. I have some issues with the way the bust fits her, but she looks radiant and the emerald earrings and clutch are gorgeous.

Taylor Louderman in Christian Siriano

Christian does it again – I totally love this! I do wish she’d gone with either orange or pink shoes. The beige here is just such a letdown.

Jessie Mueller in Lela Rose

I will never not love a stripe.

Glenda Jackson in Christian Siriano

Glenda is a fascinating woman – she won her first Tony last night at the young age of 82, and in between scooping up actin’s top prizes, she served as a Labour MP!  She also looks completely lovely in this demure and elegant gown from Siriano.

Laurie, who won for her role in Edward Albee’s “Three Tall Women” (alongside Glenda Jackson) looks fantastic in our third Siriano creation of the evening, although I want to give her right shoulder strap a little hoik.

Condola Rashad in Carolina Herrera

This is a BIG, romantic gown. She almost looks like she’s the model for a Renaissance portrait.

Lauren Ridloff in Jason Wu

Simple and gorgeous. One of my favorites of the night.

Amy Schumer in Brandon Maxwell

I’m not going to lie, I had no idea that Amy Schumer was in a play this year. Apparently it was written by Steve Martin and co-starred Keegan-Michael Key and Laura Benanti…so I’m not sure how I missed it. Anyway, I was surprised to see her there. And thoroughly un-surprised to see her wearing something boring from Brandon Maxwell.

Renee Fleming in Vera Wang

SLEEVES! This is lively and was probably good fun to swan about in all night.

Ariana DeBose in Prabal Gurung

I like the blue and I like the shiny…and I’m confused by the belt?

Ashley Park in Pamella Roland

This is fabulous. I adore the interplay between the two plum colors and the way it compliments the step and repeat. Ashley plays Gretchen Weiners in “Mean Girls” and while I was a little dissapointed by the number they preformed, she was very funny in it.

Noma Dumezweni in Adam Lippes

Noma plays Hermione in “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” and so I obviously love her, but as little as Hermione may have known about fashion, I still don’t think she would have picked this literal sad sack of a dress.

Denise Gough in Oscar de la Renta

This is lovely. She was nominated for “Angels in America” which I would sell a limb to see.

Bruce Springsteen, Patti Scialfa, and Evan, Sam, and Jessica Springsteen in Givenchy

BRUUUUCE! The Boss and his fam look great. His daughter Jessica is an accomplished equestrian and is wearing one of my favorite Givenchy gowns from last season. FYI, Bruce is just one letter (E) away from an EGOT now.
