Keri Russell was at the Tony Awards last night to present Waitress, a musical based on the film of the same name, in which she starred in 2007. Keri just had a baby, with her Americans costar Matthew Rhys, a couple of weeks ago. She was in a red low-cut Monique Lhuillier gown with cutouts along the back, buttons down the front, gathered sleeves and some kind of silver leaf-like pattern along the top. To be fair to Keri, this dress may have been a last minute choice in honor of the victims in Orlando, for which people were wearing silver ribbons. So she picked a dress with silver applique. It’s not her best look.
Busy Philipps was also in Monique Lhuillier, she went as her bestie Michelle Williams’s plus one. Busy was in a strapless pink gown with a mod floral pattern. She was carrying a Jane Eyre clutch by Olympia Le-Tan, which she already owned. This dress isn’t bad, it’s a good choice for the event.
Karolina Kurkova was in a black formfitting Coach dress with a gold and black jacket over it. I looked through their ready-to-wear jackets and there’s nothing quite like this one, not that I would want to own it or anything. It’s very Grease. Coach does have a military insignia jacket, but nothing with this diamond pattern. I think it was custom made with the silver ribbon motif.
Tavi Gevinson was also in Coach, in this somewhat shocking mix of patterns. Tavi is in The Crucible. This look is very similar to the Coach Christina Ricci wore to the CFDA Awards, however Christina had this same blouse and a-line skirt in all black with some gold piping. This looks like the 70s and 90s got drunk and had a fight.
Here’s Keri presenting Waitress:
