As I mentioned in my first post, if you keep reading what I write you will eventually find out who The Girl In a Cocktail Dress is, and what are her interests. Well, from this post, you will learn that I happen to love Broadway theatre! And what do you get when you combine Broadway + Fashion? The Tony Awards Red Carpet.
If you haven’t already guessed by now, this post features my Top 15 Looks from the Antoinette Perry Award for Excellence in Theatre. Long name, I know.. Fortunately for us, it is more commonly known as...The Tony Awards!
Because I like to keep you always on the loop, I’ll start with a short background on what the Tony awards are really all about before proceeding to the Top 15 Best Dressed list.
The Tony Award recognises achievement in live Broadway theatre and it is named after Antoinette Perry, nicknamed Tony, who was a renown actress, director, producer and co-founder of the American Theatre Wing, which presents the award along with The Broadway League at an annual ceremony held in the city that never sleeps, New York City. At the first event, Jacob Wilk (Warner Bros. story editor) handed out an award and he called it a Tony… the name stuck. The Tony Awards are the highest US theatre honor, equivalent to the Oscar’s (which I’m sure you know, honour motion pictures), the Grammy Awards for Music, and Emmy Awards for television.
See, I told you it would be short. Go on, keep scrolling to discover my favourite 15 looks from this year’s Tony Awards, I know you want to!

Kendall had to be my favourite! This fluorescent colour really suits her, and she paired it perfectly with a mirrored box clutch. You can’t see from this picture but this dress has a triangle cutout on the back, making it the right amount of sexy. Another thing you might not expect, is that this dress is totally made out of sequins, although it gave the illusion of an edgy furry material! Very cool right? I. Want. It.
