Emily Padgett took the “simple little black cocktail dress” to new heights with a halter-top neckline, key-hole cut-out at the bust, and that fascinating asymmetrical hemline brushing her knee! When a girl wears something that striking, it’s no wonder she exuded all that confidence!
Ben Vereen brought style by the buckets in his iridescent burgundy satin suit with a black shirt and a hot-fuchsia silk tie! His entrance into the party in a long black fully cut overcoat with an Asian-inspired silk scarf of red characters was classy as all-get-out! Ladies and gents: Your outerwear can be as fashionable and fun as the rest of your wardrobe, and Ben showed us how! A+
Georgia Stitt kept it girlish and romantic in an ivory geometric knit-lace dress with metallic-sequin embellishments in the weave. That cut-away notched neckline and the bare arms gave it some sex-appeal too! Excellent choice for a “Winter-White!”
Asmeret Ghebremichael wowed the crowd in her violet-blue satin dress with the sculptured asymmetrical neckline. It shimmered and shimmied as she made her way into the party, and the long dangle earrings and up-do were perfect!
Miriam Shor looked just smashing in an off-the-shoulder black velvet shirred blouse over simple black tux slacks! Excellent styling too, with the little gold hoops and nothing more! This is great understated chic!
Mary-Mitchell Campbell kept it simple, classic, and gorgeous in a black sheath with a plunging neckline that set off that luminous skin of hers. The curvy-girl silhouette at its very best! She literally glowed, and the sparkle in those strappy sandals was matched in her sunshine-blond blunt cut and those famous baby-blues! LOVE!
James Brown III took the party by storm in his strawberry red short-pants ‘n’ double-breasted tux! He pushed the fashion-envelope to the limit with the black knee-socks and beacon-bright black Oxfords… and more than one lady last night envied those million dollar legs of his too!
Yesenia Ayala stunned folks in her pink-pearl tux of striated lamé worn over a white blouse plunging down to… well, “there!” The Capri-length, high-wasted slacks cleverly became their own cummerbund! The whole outfit was “Wit and Wow” all in one!
Kate Baldwin! That All-American girl smile was the perfect counterpoint to that sexy black leather top and the slinky leggings! The always-lovely Kate was even more so! Just look at the twinkle in those eyes matched by the little touches of gold bling! This is what I call “S & S”—Sexy & Sophisticated—or should I say “Sophisti-KATED?!?”
Sutton Foster is the truest example of a Broadway star… and for all seasons! Last night she wore a Michael Kors cocktail dress of sequined polka-dots over illusion fabric. Comfortable, casual, and yet full of sparkle and dazzle, just like Sutton herself! She ruled the red carpet the same way she rules the stage! Congratulations! And congratulations to the entire company of Sweet Charity! …#andScene!
