The Tony awards are The Oscars of the theatre industry with judges picking the best shows and best actors and actresses on Broadway. Often, Hollywood stars take a break to do something serious at the theatre and so we have the same stars that attend the Oscars at these Tony awards and they make just as much effort with their dresses. This is good news for us as it’s very inspiring to see what evening wear the celebs are picking right now.
One way the Tonys differ from the Oscars is that the Tonys are in the height of summer so the stars’ dresses tend to be a lot brighter and bolder. This year was no exception with some lovely nudes, whites and yellows mixing with multi-colour creations. It’s fun to go for brights at this time of year and it livens up your skin tone so you look healthier and more alive.
These are my favourite outfits from the Tony awards:
The Brokeback Mountain actress dazzled on the red carpet in a white maxi dress. I love the detail on the dress as the black straps are a cool touch and mean she can match it with some black heels and a black clutch for a monochrome effect. White is a classic choice for summer, isn’t it?
After being nominated for an Oscar, Saoirse’s gone into theatre and she looks a lot more grown-up already. The beige maxi dress is really eye-catching as it looks like she’s wearing nothing from a distance. It’s an outfit for those who want to shock!
Lupita looks incredible in a multi-colour maxi dress with a bardot neckline. A dress with a print like this is very flattering because the eye is drawn to the all over print rather than any specific part of the body.
Yellow is so popular this season! The Charlie’s Angels actress is just the latest of many celebrities to wear a yellow dress to an awards ceremony or intimate party. It really suits her skin tone, don’t you think?
Jourdan puts the super in supermodel in a pink maxi dress – it’s so pretty and summery! I love the bodycon top, which flows out into a wider skirt as this helps us all to have a more hourglass shape. Whether you have curves or want to create curves this will help you enhance what you have.
The American model also looked super gorgeous in her multi-colour maxi dress. When you know you look good – as Joan clearly does – then you walk taller and with more attitude. Joan’s got her hands on her hips in a defiant pose in this picture as she’s challenging people to compete with her on a fashion level. Well, we can’t compete but we can certainly copy.
Claire’s one of the few stars to have gone for a black maxi dress, but it is made from a summery material. It’s just loose enough to float around her frame so she looks like a Princess when she walks with the dress flowing out behind her. You can wear black in summer, as long as you’re careful about the material you chose.
Who do you think looked the most glamorous? I love looking at dresses that will wow people!
