Anna Kendrick in Miu Miu at the Tony Awards: tragic or adorable?

71st Annual Tony Awards

Here are more photos from Sunday night’s Tony Awards. You can see the list of 2017 Tony Award winners here. Increasingly, as the years go by, the Tonys become more of a “glitzy” event, more of a regular awards show. Part of that is because there are more “movie stars” wanting to branch out into theater (or go back to their theater roots). Part of it is financial too – it costs a lot of money to launch a Broadway show these days, thus, there’s more money spent on the Tonys. Anyway, Anna Kendrick is one of those movie stars who started in theater (she’s actually a Tony Award winner) and she’s pretty much the textbook definition of “musical theater geek.” Anna wore this Miu Miu gown which… I mean, it’s on-brand for Anna, but I dislike it. I dislike everything, especially that little red bow – God, I hate that bow – and Anna’s sickly pink eye makeup. This is not the look.

I enjoy the fact that Bee Shaffer is getting more involved with her mom’s world. She’s a beautiful young woman, and she looks amazing in high-end design. Bee wore a Alexander McQueen gown from the current season, while her mom Anna Wintour wore Maison Margiela (John Galliano’s label).

Michelle Wilson in Hakaan. This is very pretty, albeit a very “standard” look for the Tony Awards. Versions of this dress in black were probably on every producer’s wife.

I don’t have an ID on Uma Thurman’s ensemble, but it’s lovely and simple and chic.

I love this photo of Cynthia Erivo (in CG) because she looks like she doesn’t want to be there, at all. This is how we should all walk the red carpet: looking great, but also looking like we’re about to kill somebody.

Tina Fey in Sally LaPointe. Simple, pretty.

    I gotta be real, this type of fashion ( boring and staid) twee loud singing folks ( that I mostly don’t know or care for) and my abiding hate for a musical is why i ABSOLUTELY sit Tonys completely out.. which is a shame since that’s one of the few award that is here rewarding Black Women’s talents?

    • PIa says:

      I also am not a fan of Hollywood musicals/Broadway. I feel that the singing talking takes away from what could be a great song. Also, the singing/talking can be so extra at times.

      Maybe it is because I grew up with Bollywood films, whose songs are actually full-fledged songs.

        Pia Something about people breaking into song mid convo just infuriates me and make me hot in the face LOL, don’t let em start leg-kicking… The Full sole exception to that is : The Lion King, I have watched the movie all of once, but the Broadway show? I can’t even see videos or whatever on tv, commercials… it makes me instant cry, went to see it, truly couldn’t get it together

      QQ aside from the Emmys (which is more recently diverse) broadway has always been the more diverse of the EGOT. Last year the top 4 awards were given to POC (all black as well) plus the musical winner was Hamilton.
      I’m a theater geek so I love the Tonys

      • QQ says:

        I know Alex, and I wholly acknowledge this, I agree theater people are more vocal, miles ahead on allyship and support of the LGBT community.. I just cannot with Overwrought Sing talking LOL

      • Alex says:

        Lol to each their own but I laughed at that last sentence

    Not feeling Bee Shaffer or Uma’s attire

  3. LeedaBird says:

    Not a fan of the dress but this is the first time I’ve seen Anna Kendrick look her age (almost 32!). Usually she could pass for a senior in high school.

  4. KatieBo says:

    Anna Kendrick was nominated for ‘High Society’ in 1998 but hasn’t actually won a Tony yet. I don’t think it’s far off, though!

  5. tracking says:

    Don’t like Anna’s dress at all. Aside from its twee-ness, the fit is off. Bee Shaffer could wear a potato sack (which she kind of is, a hyper-adorned one), and look gorgeous.

  6. Valois says:

    Bee’s dress would look better without the loose threads (??) hanging down.

  7. okay says:

    Kendrick doesn’t have a Tony, lol.

    Anna Wintour looked so dumb in the audience wearing her sunglasses.

    • What's Inside says:

      I think she is borderline senile ever since she let Kanye and Kim take over Vogue.

  9. Sunny says:

    Anna Wintour and her beetle-eyes sunglasses. And she thinks she can judge what’s stylish….??!

  10. Beth says:

    Why does Anna Wintour always wear those stupid sunglasses? Is she trying to look like a rock star?

  11. G says:

    Man, what a terrible dress. it looks both dated and cheap. And yes the pink(/red/orange/yellow) eyeshadow trend needs to stop — seeing it actually makes me a little angry, which is a bizarre reaction to have towards other peoples’ makeup. But it’s just so dumb! So unflattering!

    Speaking of unflattering, not into Tina Fey’s dress. Looks like something Julianne Moore would wear: bulky, excessively textured, boxifying.
