Nigel Lythgoe and his beautiful guest were a great-looking, elegant couple on the red carpet representing Hollywood. Good for Nigel going with his velvet pin dot jacket with grosgrain piping. His lovely date was a perfect complement to Nigel, looking ever so glamourous.

Brooke Shields looked great. Simple. Black. Chic. Perfect for a NY opening. Beautiful makeup. I especially loved the cutout in the back of the dress. Yay, Brooke! She knows how to do it.

Kristin Chenoweth

Kristin Chenoweth. Love, love, love, love, love. Leave it to Kristin to look so chic, with a sense of whimsy in her Kate Spade piano bag. That jumpsuit from Top Shop is perfect for her. Boots from Miu Miu. Statement necklace was perfect. Whole thing together, A plus.

Padma Lakshmi

Padma Lakshmi was fabulous in that natural colored suit, form fitting her body. She showed up looking so full of style — just effortless. She’s on trend with her lace cami, but more importantly it’s perfect for her.

Tony Danza and Rob McClure

Tony Danza and Rob McClure both looked great. Perfectly fitted suits, tailored for them. Looking sharp, handsome the way men should look on a Broadway red carpet.

The men of the cast all in Brooks Brothers. Yay, Brooks Brothers! You know how to dress young, handsome actors for their opening. The suits looked bespoke, as if made for them. All brought their own personalities with their accessories — ties, bow ties, and pocket squares — to show off their individuality.

Megan Fairchild was amazing, wearing an Alice and Olivia black-and-gold modified fit and flare dress, with a deep V in the front. And it fit her beautifully. Great colors on her. She wore it with an updo and the most perfect makeup. Her look was flirty and fun. The ultimate package.

Alysha Umphress

Alysha Umphress was super sexy in a vintage black dress with Alexis Vitar jewelry. Everything about her look turned heads. Glam hair. Glam makeup. Talk about a woman who knows and loves her body. And we love her!

Elizabeth Stanley

And, of course, we saved the best for last. Our stunning, luminescent Elizabeth Stanley. A vision in yellow Rolando Santana. Modern, sexy and sophisticated. Fresh. It suited her perfectly and was the most vibrant color on the carpet that night. Worn with beautiful hair and absolutely flawless makeup. Perfection.
