Who Wore It Best At The Tonys?

-------

The Tony Awards are presented annually for the best of Broadway, but you’d be forgiven if you mistook last night’s ceremony for a Hollywood affair—the attendees, and even many of the winners, were faces better recognized from the silver screen. Scarlett Johansson (above, left), Denzel Washington, and Catherine Zeta-Jones all nabbed their first Tonys, and no offense to Broadway’s own divas, but we think two of Tinseltown’s finest were also two of the evening’s best dressed. ScarJo opted for a glamorous, emerald green Elie Saab number, worn with a smoky eye and a slight bouffant, to claim her Best Featured Actress statuette for A View From the Bridge. We’ll call that the evening’s classic-done-right contender. And on the other hand, there’s presenter Cate Blanchett in Armani Privé (above, right). In her silver embossed suit and Van Cleef jewels and sporting a cropped new ‘do, she was the ceremony’s resident futurist—one of the few, we think, who can work a look we can only describe as space-robot-in-the-boardroom. So whose look do you prefer? Scarlett’s old-school elegance or Cate’s forward-leaning chic? Have a look above, and sound off below.

    I like the idea of the use the brightness and the marked outline of the two outfits. Sensual and feminine in different versions of elegance. Two styles appropriate to each one wanted to show. Both are beautiful!

    I have to go with Cate, not only because is she embracing fashion while Scarlett looks like she’s going to her senior prom, but because Cate is a legitimate actress who deserved to be anywhere NEAR the Tony Awards. Scarlett’s win for Best Featured Actress was completely inappropriate. If she wants to blaze her trail down the Broadway path, good for her, but a Tony win for her mediocre Broadway debut just seems to reek of an attempt to draw in viewers by awarding Hollywood stars (I mean, Denzel Washington? He didn’t even know the name of the organization that had just awarded him Best Actor.) Cate, on the other hand, has years of stage experience, title of artistic director of the Sydney Theatre Co under her belt, and, oh, you know, real talent. Plus, she has effortless style and a regality that Scarlett’s slouchy, boring, pouty personality will never match up to.

    omg Cate looks incredible!!! I love Scarlett but Cate wins this match! She’s not only a goddess but she’s dressed very appropriately for the occasion.
