Tony Awards 2016: Danai Gurira in Rosie Assoulin

Posted on June 13, 2016

Danai Gurira attends the 2016 Tony Awards at The Beacon Theatre in New York City.

 

The trend for yellow on our spring/summer ’16 red carpets continues apace, darlings. And while we love the dress, we’re not really feeling the rest of it, which is a surprise coming from Miss Danai, whose styling is usually impeccable.

Could’ve done without the weird cutout in the bust, but the rest of the dress is working fine. We’re not big fans of asymmetrical hems, but this one is subtle and help gives the dress a little interest without being gimmicky about it (like that damn cutout).

But we’re sorry to say we’re not at all loving the makeup, which really isn’t doing much to set off either her face or the dress (and also looks a little DIY), nor are we loving the fact that she matched her bag to her lips. That latter part wouldn’t be so egregious if we weren’t also questioning the choice of that purple as an accent. The navy blue shoes (which don’t really go with that purple) look much better with the yellow. And we have to say, as much as it pains us to, the shape of her hair is a bit odd. From the front it’s fine, but from the side it absolutely looks like she’s wearing a slightly squashed hat.
