Tony Awards 2016 Rundown: The WTF!

My dear readers, it has come to my attention that we could use a quick refresher on a thing or two. Firstly, CUAN stands for Could Use A Necklace. Secondly, I'd like to remind you all that this particular section, The WTF, is not always a BAD WTF. Indeed there are a few looks you're about to see that boggle the mind in the best possible way. Let's dive in, shall we?


Daveed Diggs (seen here with Jalene Goodwin)!
Is this the suit coat version of Andy's prom dress from Pretty in Pink? Is it a nod to Joseph? Is that mesh armor on the lower half of the sleeve? If so, does Daveed Diggs think there will be a Red Wedding moment during the Tonys? Overall...WUT. 

True story: my friend Lena sent me an email during the red carpet arrivals. The subject was "DAVEED DIGGS AT THE TONYS!!!" and the body of the email was "DAVEED DIGGS AT THE TONYS!!!" This is the correct sentiment and I have nothing more to add.

David Burtka (seen here with Neil Patrick Harris)!
Is David Burtka turning into Liberace on purpose or by accident? I'm actually asking.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead!
An ode to confetti and tasteful nudity.

Leslie Odom Jr. (seen here with Nicolette Robinson)!
This is a truly confusing hem length. WT actual F is going on with these pants? Ankles haven't been this escandaloso since the Victorian era. 

Keri Russell!
GURL WUT. Do you really sweat that much? 

Tom Scutt!
This is some Dr. Egon Spengler-goes-to-art-school realness! Boots, mock turtleneck, pleated parachute pants, the rolled up sleeves... I could not possibly love this more. Thanks to Reader Nicole for pointing out the Harold Ramis of it all. 

Cynthia Erivo!
If there was ever a dress that shouldn't work but totally does it is this one. Maybe I'm still coming down from her powerhouse performance during the Color Purple medley, but only a true diva could wear this as well as she does. It's insane and it's complicated and it's FABULOUS.
