It was a big week for formal fashion. Whether they were heading to galas, film screenings, or the annual Tony Awards just last night, stars had plenty of evening occasions to dress up for over the past few days. This meant a bevy of gowns—tons of them. But celebrities also had fun with dressing up, proving that adhering to a black tie dress code can still result in a look that’s lively and fresh.
At last night’s Tonys, the standouts were those who veered away from traditional glamour and experimented. Cynthia Erivo wore a white Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown complete with a cinched waist and built-in hood cape. Ariana DeBose sported a black sequined Boss dress with a high slit and ab-revealing cutout. Both felt elevated enough for such an awards show, but also modern and not too serious.
Elsewhere, many celebrities opted for a high dose of color. At a Bulgari event in Paris, Anne Hathaway lit up the step and repeat in a bright yellow Valentino ensemble, complete with an extra-long shirt-coat and shorts. Zendaya attended the Time 100 gala wearing a vintage Bob Mackie dress in shades of blue and teal. It was almost as though this well-clad crew were officially ushering in the summer. The more hues, the better!
