welcome to the tonys, wuh oh oh oh ohhhh oh

So, Tonys fashion rundown, y/y?

Let's go.

The Good
Kelli O'Hara working it in Alberta Ferretti. It's a great silhouette for her, and she looks radiant. Well played, Kelli - you'll win the big prize next time.

Laura Benanti, looking fabulous as always - the color looks great on her, the spangles aren't too much, and the cut befits a Tony winner in the best way. Gypsy Rose Lee would be proud.

Kerry Butler in Elie Saab. Very flattering on her figure (and I am SO jealous of that tiny waist). Not so sure about the purse, but hey, it doesn't ruin the look entirely.

Mary-Louise Parker, looking fierce as ever. Seems like the fashion rule of thumb for the Tonys dictates that the more famous you are, the shorter your dress can be - but she wears it spectacularly.

Kate Shindle deserves brownie points for looking so gorgeous from the neck up...

...but I'm not quite so convinced about the dress.

Classic, clean, and crisp. Well done, Christine Baranski.

Kristin Chenoweth could've done better, but with Cheyenne Jackson on your arm, what could possibly make the ensemble look better?

Rebecca Luker (with super-cool husband Danny Burstein), always the class act. The silhouette is flattering, and the color (is that champagne or taupe?) looks fantastic with her eye color. (Insert a Secret Garden/"Lily's Eyes" pun here at your own will.)

The Unfortunate

While Kathryn Grody represents the Lollipop Guild, Mandy Patinkin looks a whole lot like the bum who stole my egg-salad sandwich last week. Shouldn't have left Criminal Minds, man.

Oh, Laura Linney. Now, in theory, there's really nothing wrong with this gown, am I right? I mean, fairy-princess cut, lovely paler-than-pale pink color, cinched at the waist - it technically should be on the best-dressed list. But sadly, something went horribly wrong in the execution of this look that has turned La Linney's upper body into a formless, largely colorless square, while the bottom half looks as if she caught the hem in the limo door getting out. Good try, but no points this time.

Hey there, Kathryn Hahn, what have you got hidden under your dress there? Your fellow Boeing-Boeing costars Mary McCormack and Gina Gershon look so darn perty there with their nice long dresses and clean silhouettes. What went wrong? Did the Tony committee not give you enough comp tickets to get your entire family in to see your play win Best Revival, is that it? Are you smuggling one of your nearest and dearest in under that unseemly pile of ruffles? Because honestly, K.Hahn, I'm sure they would've given you an extra ticket if you'd just asked.

The Horrifying

You know how Laura Bell Bundy played a psychopathic child star in Ruthless! at age ten? This is pretty much what Tina Denmark grew up to be. Run for your life, Becky Gulsvig!
