New York City saw the glam and glitzy Tony Awards last night where a cluster of A-listers who’ve made a splash in theatreland took a spin in the spotlight. It's time to take a gander at the event's Best Dressers...
First up, a shaky applause goes to Cate Blanchett who looked very well put together in a shimmering organza evening suit by Giorgio Armani Privé that draws parallels with the (albeit rather elegant) Tin Man, don’t you think? We love her nifty Roger Vivier Boite de Nuit clutch but overall, this one might take some convincing...
Katie Holmes also managed to get her mitts on an Armani Privé design and what a treat it was to see her looking so princess-like in this silk chiffon dove grey dress. No doubt mini-me-meets-mommy-stylist Suri was on hand to adjudicate, natch. If only she'd paid more attention to the boob region... *shudder*
Blanchett’s fellow Aussie actress, Naomi Watts sure loves a good RM by Roland Mouret number for here she is looking more resplendent than ever in a BEAutiful nude gown that fits to her slender figure like a dream, while Lucy Liu (where the heck has she been hiding?!) went for a similar creamy shade with her super sweet Marchesa number, enhanced by lots of feminine froofery, a pair of pink drop earrings and the same Roger Vivier clutch as Cate. Very good indeed, ladies.
And three cheers for Scar Jo who picked up the best supporting actress award for her role in A View from the Bridge and was back to her smoking hot best swathed in a stunning emerald green Elie Saab frock worthy of a winner, topped off with that wonderous bouffant. SWOON.
Catherine Zeta Jones made quite the entrance too, gliding onto the red rug with aplomp thanks to her powder blue Versace gown before scooping her own award, and thanking hubby Michael - 'the movie star I get to sleep with every night'. Oh-er!
But our standing ovation of the night is reserved for the ultimate Gleek, Lea Michele, and her divinely vibrant Zac Posen draped dress which added a dash of colour to the evening. Surely imitating Diane Kruger and Michelle Williams’ fabulously unforgettable mustard moments can only be a good thing, no? We say yes.
