Tony Awards 2016 Rundown: The Good!

My dear readers, I was so delighted by the HamilTony Awards this year, mostly because there was so much Hamilton (almost 3 numbers), plenty of bizarre antics, and no end to touching, heartfelt moments. AND ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER ON THE TAMBOURINE! Now, there were plenty of Hollywood stars at the Tonys but it's the Tonys so if you don't recognize someone they are likely an incredibly talented Broadway star. Google, watch, behold!


We have a LOT of men in the Good pile this time around, starting with this gorgeous man. Common is physically incapable of looking bad in a tux... or really in anything. Also, new rule: we always stand in front of a wall of roses when posing for pictures.

Danai Gurira!
Wowza! At first I thought maybe this taffeta was too heavy but I like the construction on the dress and the cutouts very much and I don't think they would have held as well with a different fabric. The star of this show (I mean, of course other than Danai) is the styling. The jewel tones for shoes and clutch work perfectly and her head is perfection. 

Ali Stroker!
Gorgeous! Absolutely perfect look and a beautiful fit.

Josh Grobin!
Ignoring this beard/hair situation, this is a great look. Love a navy tux and really appreciate the fact that he didn't go with the slim fit. Also, no one has a better sense of humor about himself than Josh Grobin, which makes me love him just a little bit. 

Chita Rivera!
Yes, the bolero is a bit dated and the whole thing is a bit matronly but girlfriend is 83 years old. AND she's Chita f'n Rivera. She looks great and she can do whatever the hell she wants. 

Laurie Metcalf!
Perhaps the best she has ever looked. Get it, Aunt Jackie!

Lupita Nyong'o!
Welcome back to the Lupita Channel, where everything she does is spectacular and perfect and we are all unworthy mortals.

Clint Ramos!
While I feel he should have kept his jacket buttoned for photos, he's a costume designer so he clearly knows what he's doing. Besides, you have to trust a man who put little bows on his dress shoes and WORKS THAT SHIT.

Claire Danes!
I would like to hug Claire Dane's new stylist and makeup artist. They are doing outstanding work and correcting years of ill will I felt toward La Danes. CUAN. Not a big one, just a little hint of sparkle.

Christopher Jackson (seen here with Veronica Jackson)!
Excellent work, sir. Simply stunning. I'd follow that tux into battle any day. 

Laura Osnes!
Simple, elegant, and perfectly executed.

Marlee Matlin!
Faaaabulous. My friends and I were speculating how much fun it must be to be the person who gets to style Marlee Matlin's hands. Hands and beyond, this is a beautiful look.

Brandon Victor Dixon!
While I don't exactly understand the no-socks trend, this is a great hem length for that look. Overall, this is simply stunning. Fantastic color, gorgeous fit, good size bowtie, super fun pocket square. 

Daniel Dae Kim!
More like Daniel BAE Kim, amIright!? 

Sophie Okonedo!
I am here for this. Fabulous silhouette, impeccable construction, unexpected colors, brilliant styling. 

Lin-Manuel Miranda (seen here with Vanessa Nadal)!
As with everything the man touches, this is great. (Also I do not like to comment on regular people's red carpet attire but I am living for this dress. LIVING.)

Zainab Jah!
Yes! She looks like a princess! And wouldya check that bling!? Love it! And because Reader Sara loves Zainab so very much, here's a bonus shot, just for her (and everyone else in Philly who saw her Hamlet)...

What a piece of work is Zainab
