From new sultry styles to classic couture to some hilarity or controversy and sometimes even some latex fashion one can always rely on a good red carpet to deliver. Just this past Sunday Broadway’s brightest came out to celebrate the 73rd Annual Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall.t this past Sunday Broadway’s brightest came out to celebrate the 73rd Annual Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall. A few weeks ago, we had the world movie elite descend in the south of France for the annual Cannes movie event. Both red carpets produced grand style and loud chatter about it.
At Cannes, fans and eagle-eyed paparazzi are treated mostly to elegant gowns and the stunning jewelry pieces movie royalty wear. And across eleven days of parties, see-and-be-scenes, screenings, and premieres, all kinds of style is revealed. But beyond the haute couture, this year controversy came from Vietnamese fashion designer Ngoc Trinh. Wearing a glittering form-fitting dress of these sheerest material Trinh’s halter top left her nipples exposed, while her beaded skirt with its double thigh split left her rear mostly uncovered. Nguyen Ngoc Thien, Vietnam’s minister of culture, sports, and tourism, didn’t take to this certainly alternate (and sexy) style all that well, saying in part that Trinh’s couture was “improper, offensive and has caused public outrage.” Vietnam is a place known for stringent laws against this kind of offense.
A few weeks later, at the Tony’s, Emily Ratajkowski sported her own alt. look wearing a risqué (though once again supremely sexy) black Michael Kors bralette connected to a full skirt, with cut-outs at the sides of the dress’s plunging-front. There was also Lucy Liu purple tulle, Regina King hot pink Prada, Tina Fey in a gold suit, and Catherine O’ Hara sporting the most striking pattern with black and white horizontal and arched stripes.
Dominique Morisseau came closet to any kind of latex sensibility in her red strapless seemingly pleather outfit.
