If ever there were Broadway royalty, Helen Mirren would be the Queen!... Literally! Looking as glamorous as ever, she makes elegance look effortless! And color! Has anyone ever had a better sense of her own palette? Just look at that cerulean! Her Majesty would certainly approve!

Leanne Cope

Absolutely dazzling in her strapless black silk faille gown, Leanne Cope was the perfect Parisienne. And this Randi Rahm creation is so aptly named "Sabrina" after... well, you know who!

Lovely Jill Paice made her entrance in a Randi Rahm tribute to the French called "Odette," a champagne-hued gown of beaded silk and cascading ruffles of tulle.

Randi Rahm

Style icon and designer Randi Rahm is right on trend in her own black and white lace ensemble, but who would expect anything less? With Randi, it's taste and class all the way, all the time!!

Like a statue gliding down the red carpet, Tiler Peck featured an off-the-shoulder micro-pleated bodice and a column of white right to the floor. A truly elegant nod to the Paris theme of the night!

Sometimes the simplest basic is the best! Just look at Max von Essen! What could be handsomer than a great-looking guy in a classic tux? He looks like he stepped right out of Paris in 1950!

Guys, if you want a variation on the theme, make it a three-piece tux. Look at that vest peeking out on Robert Fairchild, for some added style.

Renaissance man Andrew Lippa looked smashing in his black suit and silvery grey shirt and tie with double boutonnière holes stitched into the lapel in sapphire blue and a matching sapphire stripe in the tie! A tie bar is a great retro nod to the "Mad Men" era!

Like a 1930s chanteuse, Megan Fairchild was perfection in a bead and sequin encrusted bodice with pleated skirt in blush. Excellent color choices for her lovely coloring! Girl, I'm giving you an A+!!
