LoveBrownSugar Fashion Countdown: Tony Awards

The Tony Awards premiered last night on CBS and above hearing my favorite actor's name being called for Best Actor (Denzel Washington won a Tony for "Fences"), I thoroughly enjoyed the red carpet moments. Here's a countdown with a few of my favorites -  chime in if you agree/disagree!

6. Lucy Liu

Although I'm absolutely in love with this Marchesa gown, I'm not sure this was the best pick for Lucy. The fabric, the shape and the draping make for an incredible gown. However, I think the light color washes her out a bit...

5. Paula Abdul

I must say, I'm normally disappointed by Paula Abdul's outfit choices but I do think this one in particular worked for her. The mermaid silhouette looks great on her dancer's body and I love the intricate detailing that went into the train. It almost looks like one of those convertible pieces that can be ripped off at the bottom convert to a cocktail piece.

4. Michelle Williams
Michelle rocked out with all black everything for the Tony Awards. Normally, I would say this was a snoozer because of the simple silhouette but I do love the high slits and the fact that it has a train. And those shoes are POW! Diamonds are forever, clearly. I still need to make it over to Broadway and catch her in her recurring role in Chicago. Sooner or later...

3. Lea Michelle

I absolutely love the color on this piece. Lea Michelle rocked this Zac Posen to the tee. Excellent lip color choice as the red clearly compliments the banana-colored yellow in the gown. It's so refreshing and elegant to see starlets rock a strapless piece with a well placed updo or chignon. Love!

2. Jada Pinkett

So maybe I'm a little biased. She's one of my favorite leading ladies in Hollywood and I just spent my Saturday and Sunday nights watching her offspring on the big screen. (Sidenote: I loved the Karate Kid remake with her son Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan - it was awesome hence why I went to see it twice) I thought she looked stunning in this red mini Marchesa gown. The signature pleats and the rich color had me at hello.

1. Scarlett Johansonn

 Not only is this girl a knockout, she's always at the top of my best dressed list! It was love at first sight with this sparkly Elie Saab number fit for Emeral City. From the sparkle, to the rich color and the double-strapped construction, this look was ON POINT! And the hair and makeup definitely take it there. 

What do you guys think of my Top 6? Any celebs I miss? Soundoff below!

Pin It!


  1. Love your list! I agree that Scarlett can do no wrong! Everyone looked great.

  2. Im still loving Michelle's haircut and her shoes were HOT.
    Jada is my girl! She could wear a brown bag and make it look good. But the color of her dress looks stunning against her glowing skin.
    And Scarlett looks beautiful as always.

  3. My favorite was Michelle. I like the fact that she kept it simple and everything matched. Fashion isn't always about taking risks, sometimes it's just about looking good in the most simple, chicest way possible.
