We’ve spent all day giving the spotlight treatment to various attendees of the 2022 Tonys (and you can find all that coverage by clickety-clicking here), but it’s time to round up the rest of the lot and give them the ol’ drive-by judgment. Put your judgin’ pants on, kittens!
Amber Ruffin in Christian Siriano
The color looks great on her, but the top half of the design feels a little unresolved. We like the layered effect, though.
Can’t really argue with that.
Or that. It comes off a little stiff and heavy but it looks great on her and we love the earrings.
Cynthia Erivo in Giambattista Valli Couture
Gorgeous. And believe it or not, we don’t think it comes off bridal, which is something we tend to say about most white gowns.
Danielle Brooks in Viktor Luna
LOVE the hair. We tend to think it would work better with a sleeker – or at least, less voluminous silhouette. The textile is gorgeous and the sandals are great.
Judith Light in Thom Browne
It’s dramatically minimalist and it suits her perfectly. Wish we could see the necklace a little better.
Julianne Hough in Pamella Roland
Someone went a little crazy with the diamante trim. This would be improved if roughly half that foofaraw was removed.
Kelli O’Hara in Bibhu Mohapatra
We suspect that draping effect was to give her a little room to breathe, but it just looks like the textile got stretched out. It’s a lovely gown other than that one element.
Krysta Rodriguez in Julie de Libran
A relatively simple, classic design, but she looks great.
Lea Michele in Cong Tri
She’s orange and we don’t like those cutouts at all.
Marcia Gay Harden in Oscar de la Renta
She’s giving minimalist grande dame and it suits her, although that’s a LOT of pink.
Phylicia Rashad in B Michael America
We’re sorry to say we don’t like anything about this dress; not the design, not the color story and definitely not the textiles, which photograph terribly.
Samuel J. Jackson and LaTanya Richardson Jackson
He’s looking super-fine and her coat is pure stunning.
On the one hand, Sarah gonna Sarah and we shouldn’t expect any different from her. On the other hand, this looks really, really dated.
Sutton Foster in Dolce & Gabbana
Pretty and uncomplicated, which is pretty much the order of the night for the Tonys, unlike other entertainment award events, which practically require that the attendees and nominees show up in highly attention-seeking looks.
Uzo Aduba in Cong Tri
We don’t always think she picks the best silhouettes for herself and this time is no different, but there’s something appealing about the drama of it all.
Vanessa Hudgens in Schiaparelli Couture
We laughed -in a good way – at the boob draping, because it’s just so very Schiaparelli, which has always been a house obsessed with repackaging and reframing the female body. LOVE the earrings. Not loving the sheer hose and open-toed shoe.
