Kendall Jenner in salmon Calvin Klein at the Tony Awards: cute or tedious?


Nothing perfectly encapsulates the journey the Tony Awards have taken to rebrand themselves as a big, celebrity-friendly awards show than these photos of Kendall Jenner. Is Kendall Jenner a movie star? Nope. Is she a TV star? Nope (reality TV doesn’t count). Is she a theater star? Nope. Is she even a major model? Not really. But there she was, mingling at the Tony Awards. This year’s Tony Awards got a sort of Anna Wintour makeover, like they were trying to be a bigger fashion event. And this is what we get. Kendall wore Calvin Klein – I would have liked this better in any color other than salmon.


Kristin Chenoweth in Zac Posen. She and Alan Cumming were the hosts of the evening. I wish he didn’t wear his big-boy shorts to the red carpet, but whatever. She looks pretty.


Emily Ratajkowski in Marc Jacobs. Emily’s style is usually kind of cheap, but this looks nice on her.


Anna Wintour and Bee. Bee is so pretty. Bee is wearing Marc Jacobs.


Helen Mirren won Best Actress for The Audience! She wore this white Badgley Mischka gown which is a little matronly but still beautiful.


Elisabeth Moss in Oscar de la Renta. Bless her, she tries. This is a pretty gown, but her styling is sort of off. I’m not crazy about her blonde either.


Ruth Wilson in Ralph Lauren. I’ll admit it, this is one of my favorite looks from the evening. Beautiful color on Ruth.

    Hate Kendall’s dress, sorry. Oh, and still wish she would stop appearing everywhere.

    LOVE Ruth’s dress. Looks so beautiful!

    I like Elisabeth’s dress but agree, something is off. Not a fan of the blonde either. She needs a different shade to go with her skin.

    • springingforward says:

      Ruth’s dress and color are amazeballs. Elisabeth needs a stylist.
      What is Kendull Jenner doing there and why is she already messing with her face? Way to downgrade the Emmy’s…

      • lkaye says:

        Right? There is something different about the way Kendall looks. Her eyes are different. Perhaps botox to arch the brow?

      • Katenotkatie says:

        Elisabeth has such a cute/banging body, and that dress is not doing her any favors. I adore her though, Peggy 4eva

    • INeedANap says:

      What is it even made out of? It looks like that crushed velvet stuff I find on discount pillows at Pier 1.

      • Skyblue says:

        I thought maybe Kendall’s dress is made of remnant chenille, leftover from last years line of jcpenny old lady zip-front sweaters.

      • bellenola says:

        The dress looks like a Project Runway reject.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        The fabric looks awful. In the view from the back, it looks like it is fraying at the seams.

    • prettylights says:

      I disagree that it looks like Kendall did something to her face. Honestly I think her lack of plastered on makeup is refreshing, she looks her age and very pretty! Hate the dress though.

      Helen Mirren is everything, always.

  2. lila fowler says:

    Even the red carpet people on the Tony broadcast were like, “…Kendall Jenner is randomly here.”

  3. Whinehouse says:

    Helen Mirren, matronly! Wha?! HM slays these wannabe bitches.
    The texture + colour of Kendall’s dress makes it look like actual fish scales. However, I do think she is well matched to the CK brand. I like her, sorry!

  4. Franca says:

    I hate Ruth’s dress. The cut is off and the colour is just ugly. She usually looks much more interesting.

    • cr says:

      It looks like they took a very tight tshirt and then sewed some drapes on the bottom of it.
      Love the color though.
      And the bra, either she’s not wearing one or the one she’s wearing needed to be more supportive.

    • Kitten says:

      The only thing I like about it is the color. I hate the cut–so unflattering and I agree with cr that she needs a bra.

    • bondbabe says:

      Love the color–but the drop-waist is so reminiscent of the 1980’s. Yikes!

    • belle de jour says:

      + 10000. A community senior center ballet outfit gone wrong. Unflattering & wrong lines everywhere.

    • QQ says:

      Agreement with you guys, I was Like wait what?? That terrible Overdropped waist??!! It’s giving her the torso of a Giantess for no reason

      Love everything about Elizabeth Moss and Helen Mirren

      Is Kendull Wearing Crushed Velvet>?!??!?!

  5. Nicolette says:

    What is that dress made out of? Looks like the same stuff they use to make toilet seat covers. Helen Mirren on the other hand, elegant stylish and gorgeous.

  6. lucy2 says:

    Kendall’s dress is odd, and she had no business being there.
    I like Emily’s dress. Kristin’s is pretty, but goodness gracious, those shorts are terrifying.

  7. Lennox says:

    Kendall’s dress looks weirdly furry – is that just me? Girl has amazing legs though.
    I love Bee’s look and she’s so striking.

    • Antonym says:

      It’s not just you. That dress just looks like a furry mess. Between the furriness and the long sleeves it looks too warm, but it’s short and has an open back ? Can’t be comfortable. And the color?!? I typically love salmon, but this color is not right for the dress or the wearer.

  8. Naddie says:

    Only Helen Mirren. Only.

  9. meme says:

    what the hell were jendall, Emily and the Wintours doing there? Jeesh, Kendall probably doesn’t even know what a Tony is.

  10. Tifygodess says:

    seriously Kockroaches – that’s all I got. *rolls eyes* It reminds me of the saying she’s so desperate she will show up to the opening of an envelope, just to be seen.

  11. Hautie says:

    That is a gorgeous Oscar de la Renta gown.

    I am thinking it would have worked better with someone with darker hair coloring. A brunette… maybe even a someone with auburn hair.

    Or if Elizabeth had wore her hair up. Sadly, her blonde is not a good shade, for those bold Summer colors of the floral design. They clash. But I do like, that she tends to pick interesting gowns, for her red carpet walks. And I really love this Oscar de la Renta gown.

    • belle de jour says:

      So agree. Darker hair, different color lips.
      How perfect would that have been, against that green lawn garden backdrop?

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I looooove this gown. So feminine and lovely! I do agree that it doesn’t work with her hair color. Also, I don’t think her hair color works with her skin tone. I think if she had a nice rich brown or auburn hair color, it would have improved the overall look.

  12. Jayna says:

    It’s the Tony Awards. Why are Kendall and J-LO and Bella Foster (a B model) and others of their ilk, having nothing to do with Broadway, on the Tony Awards show red carpet? Is this what it’s been reduced to?

    • leah says:

      +1 its pretty pathetic by the organisers,

    • Kiki says:

      @jayna. I ask the same thing, soon you’ll see the same Kendall, Gigi and Bella Hadid at the Oscars, and they don’t belong there. This is why I stop watching Award Shows. It is not about the talent of people who worked hard to become the actors, singers and dancers they are, instead it is becoming a fashion freak show. Tony organizers really disappoints me.

    • swack says:

      On the upside, Tim Curry was there despite having suffered a stroke. He received the Lifetime Achievements Award.

    • belle de jour says:

      Oh, I’m hoping what’s now usually a whispered backlash against Hollywood invading Broadway goes far more public after this red carpet of absurd & irrelevant celebrity. It began as grumblings amongst theatre folks who actually earned their chops getting bumped for film actors who wanted a little more cred to waltz in and ‘lead’ a Bway show (because they sold tickets, too)… but I’m crossing my fingers.

  13. Birdix says:

    Anna Wintour’s dress makes her literally as well as figuratively prickly: “Don’t hug me if you value your health.”

  14. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I’m not loving any of these looks.

  15. Kiddo says:

    I don’t think that color and material would look good on anyone, anything, including a settee or a formal parlor sofa.

  16. Reale says:

    I love Kendall’s dress. Its made from sequins sewn tightly together. I love the effect, but it also must be itchy to wear.

    • Kitten says:

      Wow, that’s really cool. I appreciate the texture more now that I know it’s not a fur/velvet-y thing.

      • Kiddo says:

        But we can still have hate for the color, can’t we? I still think there is some velvety thing happening.

    • j.eyre says:

      That is a stunning effect, I can’t imagine how long that must have taken to put together.

      I am going to throw my votes fro Kristin and Elizabeth’s dresses on this thread.

  17. Nev says:

    Kendall has already happened!!!! Haha

  18. Dawn says:

    It is not my favorite and she just seems so out of place being there with all those talented people while her talent is simply standing there with a ton of makeup on. It was an old looking dress…like it was from 1969. Not impressed.

  19. Kate says:

    Is it just me or does Anna Wintour wear the same pair of nude-colored, open-toed sandals to everything? With no nail lacquer on her toes ever?? You’d think she’d spice it up every now and then being the top banana of Vogue. C’mon, Ice Queen.

    • belle de jour says:

      Thank you! I almost always detest her shoes… especially those ridiculous mules (ugh!) and Easy Spirit sling backs she pairs with almost everything. It’s a jarring old-lady note that I guess she doesn’t see – and no one has the death wish to tell her.

    • Nina says:

      Amen to that. It’s so hard to take her seriously when her hair, shoes and dress, even, are in a perpetual state of “thirty years ago”. Someone needs to tell her.
      Bee, on the other hand, is always cute.

  20. Linn says:

    I like the color and cut of Kendall’s dress but the material is off.

  21. bettyrose says:

    Forget in a play. Has Kendall Jenner seen a play? Heard of a play?

  22. Miss M says:

    What is she douing there? Was she nominated for something?

  23. capepopsie says:

    big-boy shorts !
    That´s it.
    Can´t unsee that. .

  24. Kendal looks like Kris with messy hair, WTH was she doing there?

  25. kri says:

    I’m just here for Helen Mirren, bossing the universe around. she is the Empress Of Everything. If I have to scroll through Kendall Jenner wearing…that, so be it. Also, I love Elizabeth Moss’s gown,, it just needs a little tailoring.

  26. Otaku Fairy says:

    I love Kendall’s dress- it’s so unique- and I like Helen Mirren’s and Emily R’s dresses too.

  27. cakecakecake says:

    Helen Mirren slays them all!!

  28. Velvet Elvis says:

    That coral color is beautiful but the material is fugly. She pulls it off though.

    • LadyoftheLoch says:

      That girl could make a burlap sack look good, much to many people’s chagrin.
      I detest the Kartrashian brand, but Kendall at least is doing her own thing in her own way and distancing herself from the clutches of Pimp Mama. She seems more thoughtful and intelligent than her sibs, although that isn’t saying a whole lot.

      Still not sure why she felt it appropriate to turn up at the Tony awards though?

  29. WinonaRyder says:

    Are the Tonys so hard up that they have to invite someone like Jenner to the show?

    How pathetic.

  30. lila fowler says:

    Helen Mirren’s dress is too bridal. If she and Hackford were on their way to their own wedding, she’d look perfect.

  31. I-am-fluff says:

    Yikes. Kendal has beautiful figure but her posture to me is odd – on that profile pic, i feel her head is unnaturally placed – like imagine it at more like 11 oclock angle rather then the 12 oclock where it is now. Do u see it? Again, beautiful lady but just odd posture

  32. I Choose Me says:

    Helen Mirren slays! And I love the colour and fit of Emily’s dress.

  33. Me too says:

    Kendall won’t have a modeling career muh longer if she keeps jacking with her face.

  34. mogul says:

    She’s there thanks to kanye west, her while carreer has been given to her by him

  35. Misprounced Name Dropper says:

    Um….what happened to the ask her more thing?
