The 9 Best Looks From the Cherry Orchard Red Carpet
Christy Altomare arrived in a breezy strawberry pink cocktail dress with the very on-trend cutouts around the neckline. Simple and fitted, it was a breath of fresh air on a balmy October night.
Bebe Neuwirth was all romance-and-retro in a red-on-red ensemble. An asymmetrical silk camisole under a plush velvet open coat with ¾ sleeves was like a vision by the great Poiret. The jet-black flapper necklace and choker and black velvet harem pants added so much, and that mini-Inverness capelet buttoned at the shoulder was fabulous!
Condola Rashad brought the contemporary edge right up-to-the-minute in those hot!-Hot!-HOT PANTS!!! The festive button closure on the fly and the slate suede gave them the luxe-factor. And the lovely collar detailing on the sweet white blouse and the jujjjed-sleeves kept it all fresh. Love those black booties, Condola! You get an A++++.
Laura Bennati was all smiles and style in her classic little black dress! Expecting in just a couple of months, she happily displayed a baby-bump and all the lovely curves that go with it in her fitted sheath of black lace over silk. Do women really glow when they’re pregnant?? Oh, YES! Benanti = Beautiful!!
Laura Osnes and Nathan Johnson continue to show up at opening nights as the stylish couple of Broadway! Laura was flowy and floral in bold colors on black and Nathan complimented her perfectly in his black tux with an ice-white shirt and is that a cravat tossed under the shirt for a little extra interest? Terrific!
Celia Keenan-Bolger looked smashing in a mandarin silhouette of lace overlay. Swirling gold florals swept up to her collar and to the little cap sleeves. The feathered toss of her gloriously gold hair framed that million dollar smile, and I loved the patent cross-strap spiked heels!!
Tina Benko played the current jump-suit trend to perfection in flowing silk! The palazzo pants and pockets, the pleated halter-top and plunging neckline, and that luxurious shade of claret DEE-LISH!
Kyle Beltran looked sharp as a razor in a chocolate-with-chiles tux suit. The 1950s retro styling was reinforced in that white shirt with the buttoning done under a black-piped placket and collar. And how about the Buddy Holly black bow tie! As I said, Kyle! SHARP!
Diane Lane brought classic and contemporary to the party in her stunning metallic lace over a fitted graphite sheath and no, that’s not a necklace! That’s added lace embellishment in gold on illusion fabric at Lane’s neckline! Sexy & Sophisticated and perfect for the leading lady!! #andScene.
