Best Looks From The Red Carpet of Oh, Hello’s Opening Night
Jimmy Fallon dropped by, dressed much as he does for The Tonight Show. A terrific but understated suit and tie…and in the right colors for his palette. Guys, this is what a pricey suit looks like when you want to be handsome enough for the girls, but not look like you fussed! Tailored to a “T”… and again, in the right colors. Jimmy wears browns like a pro!
And there was Lorne Michaels standing right next to him! Same deal, but age appropriate! A dark, dark suit with a classic light blue shirt open at the collar is the perfect mix of sophistication-but-not-stuffy! A light (or white!) shirt illuminates a mature face, and the dark outer suit frames and accentuates the effect perfectly! Lorne knows!
Betsy Wolfe positively twinkled in that glorious ruby red, sapphire blue and chocolate knitted dress and jacket. The detailing involved open-work embellished with appliques of floral-geometrics and delicate stitching… The effect was both “peasant” and “urban”…like folk art, but from an atelier on Madison Avenue. You could tell by the sparkle in Betsy’s eyes that she knew she looked like a million!
Two words that seem to define “cool”: Jon. Hamm. Done. What more needs to be said! Scruffy, yet stylish in that bold-plaid midnight suit over a micro-plaid pale lavender shirt and plain black tie. Buttoned up, and yet the tie just loosened ever so, and those brown suede shoes! He dares to push all the edges of that fashion envelope! A+++
Emily Rebholz (costume designer) was chic personified in that lovely black leather jacket dressed up in a flowy white peasant blouse and a knotted bow of a draped tie at her frilled collar.
Director Alex Timbers was all smiles in his graphite suit with a gingham sky-blue shirt and a textured Wedgewood tie… The combination of the cool grey and the homey-ness of the checked shirt was a refreshing take on men’s evening fashion.
Luann de Lesseps ruled the red carpet! Decked out in head-to-toe Not-Quite-Winter White, she laid to rest that old-fashioned quandary of no-white-after-Labor Day. The cashmere wrap coat and the white lace slacks were gorgeously set off by the gold clutch and sandals, and that star pendant (just in case anyone was in doubt!).
…and standing with her was fashion designer Randi Rahm dressed in her own collection in black. Randi’s work is showing up more and more on the gals of the red carpets and Great White Way. Like the folks on the West Coast, it looks like opening-night New Yorkers are celebrating the style that our town has always had at its finger tips…only more so!
