Crimson And Clementine, Over And Over
Four years ago, a seismic event occurred in L.A. that rocked us to our core. It was the 78th Annual Academy Awards, and the earth shook when Michelle Williams emerged on the red carpet in that canary yellow, accordion-pleated Vera Wang dress boasting lashes out to there, soft bangs, and a perfect scarlet pout that would forever unite the lip color and the dress color in our minds. Fast-forward to last night’s Tony Awards, and there it was again, only this time, it was Lea Michele in a Zac Posen strapless number mixing crimson and tangerine. The Glee star chose a deeper, more burgundy red with shimmer as opposed to Williams’ glossy, true red stain, but it still managed to wow us with its shocking, complementary contrast. Sentimentality aside, which version do you like best?
