Jennifer Lopez shut down the red carpet in a voluminous navy gown at the 2015 Tony Awards, held at Radio City Music Hall in New York on Sunday. The pop star brought old Hollywood glamour to the event in a strapless Spring 2015 Couture gown from Valentino. A curled-under bob hairstyle added extra oomph to her look.
The gown was from the fashion house’s Look No. 39. The Latino beauty featured an A-line full skirt with layers of fabric. With its bandeau neckline and silver embellishments in the form of stars, the Italian label’s collection was inspired by pure romance. The 45-year-old showed off her assets and toned arms in the navy ensemble that had a celestial theme, according to E! News.
J.Lo accessorized her elegant ensemble with Harry Winston jewelry that consisted of bracelets, a small earring and a ring. She also carried a gold metallic Jimmy Choo clutch. When the star lifted her dress, she revealed matching Christian Louboutin strappy heels. Her flawless makeup consisted of dramatic bold berry lips and bronze blush.
Meanwhile, Kendall Jenner made a surprise appearance at the awards ceremony wearing a sequined peach Calvin Klein Collection mini by the brand’s creative director, Francisco Costa. Also present were Bella Hadid, Joan Smalls, Hilary Rhoda, Francisco Costa, Amber Valletta and Joseph Altuzarra. The red carpet resembled a Vogue affair rather than a Broadway awards ceremony.
The current crop of models came in full force, like Bella Hadid in a strapless black and white column number from Prabal Gurung. This was all thanks to Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue, who offered her stylish services to the Tonys' red carpet this year. American Theatre Wing head and costume designer William Ivey Long thanked her for her contribution.
The annual Broadway event has traditionally been of more interest to theater fans than fashionistas. A year ago Wintour proclaimed the annual event to be a fashion disaster in need of help. She is one of the most powerful and influential people in the fashion world. With Wintour taking control, nominees and attendees of the event wore gowns from Oscar de la Renta, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs and other top designers.
