Lucy Liu in Vivienne Westwood at the 2014 Tony Awards

Posted on June 09, 2014

The Tonys, bless them, are something of an entertainment industry Nerd Prom. And like any Nerd Prom, the fashion and the picture-posing tend to be slightly on the raggedy side of things, mainly because the vast majority of the people who walk that red carpet aren’t celebrities in the “household name” sense and because major fashion houses tend not to lend out their wares to anyone but the A and B-listers. Brutal, but there it is.

What we don’t understand is this:

You’re a highly fashionable A-lister, Lucy. You should have aced this night, since there was so little in the way of competition. And while this looks very good from further away, when we get up close we’re distracted by a bust that’s clearly too small for you and a pair of strappy shoes that are, to be honest, a little on the ugly side. And is it us or does her hair look kind of hastily pinned up?

It’s a gorgeous gown – and we LOVE the clutch – but the detailing and fit are a little off. She still looks good, but she’s not up to her usual standards.
