Why the Tonys Red Carpet Is Different Than Other Award Shows

Mean Girls' Ashley Park Gets Ready For Her First Tony Awards Red Carpet

In her day-to-day life, Ashley Park is a pure bohemian flower child. “I love a flowy Free People dress and my favorite article of clothing right now are my distressed, ripped jeans from Alice & Olivia or my Converse sneakers,” Park, who plays Gretchen Wiener in Mean Girls on Broadway, tells InStyle.com the morning after the Tony Awards. “Both me and Gretchen have a soft spot for Kate Spade. We both love a halter neck and a statement piece. Every piece of Gretchen's outfit is a statement piece. She tries a little too hard to coordinate; it's very sweet.” Park made her Broadway debut in 2014 in Mamma Mia!, but really made a stamp on the Great White Way when she played Tuptim in the revival of The King and I. This Tonys season, she was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical. Having virtually grown up in the musical theater world (she was a musical theater student at the University of Michigan and performed in her high school musicals before that), Park is used to playing dress up. But something felt a bit different about last night’s costume change: “For a performance, I have the same people every day helping me get into hair and costume, and a set schedule after our half-hour call,” Park explains. “Jimmy brings my wig, Margiann presets my costumes as my dresser, and I do my [own] make up. For an awards show, there are a number of other hair and make-up stylists involved in prepping me and instead of getting into a costume that I wear every day, I'm getting into a special outfit specifically for that evening!” To the Tonys, Park worked with celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger who dressed her in a custom, tulle Pamella Roland gown. RELATED: The Best Accessories Tips from Celebrity Stylist Micaela Erlanger “The color and texture and shape is something that I've never worn before,” Park says of her ultra-glam moment. “It was the first dress I tried on in my second fitting and everyone in the room was unanimous that it was the one. I am very drawn to unique and vibrant colors and I wanted to take a risk since it was my first Tonys carpet.” Erlanger paired the plum gown with Jimmy Choo heels (“that are superrrr high but with a chunky heel, so that the heels don't get stuck in the tulle,” Park tells us) and H. Stern rings that matched the moon and stars theme. “I felt like I was wearing a garden on my gown that feels like air, and with the sky on my hands.”

This Bedroom Staple Is Now Red-Carpet Approved

The pajama-dressing trend has reached all new heights. On Sunday, Jenna Lyons hit the red carpet at the Tony Awards wearing a robe. No, this isn't a kimono-inspired dress, but an actual snake-print robe from the Voutsa x Paul Marlow collection. Roobes are typicallt reserved for binge watching your favorite Netflix show. But Lyons proved that the negligees look just as great on the red carpet. And we love it, too because you get the same cozy effect as wearing a pair of sweatpants and a hoodie, but robes look so much more sophisticated.  The key to making the gown work outtside of the bedroom is to chose a made from a silky fabric. Terry cloth and cotton options can leave you looking sloppy. You'll also want to elevate the look with accessories. Lyons made her silk robe red-carpet ready with multi-strap Rochas heelsBucellati jewelry, a gold clutch, and her signature black-frame glasses. Each accessory makes a unique statement, without taking the spotlight away from the robe. Turning robes into dresses isn't the only fashionable way to wear the popular look. You could also transform the bedroom staple into a pretty duster for those moments when you need a light jacket. If you want to join the pajama-dressing movement, we've rounded up some of our favorite robes below. Keep scrolling to shop the robes that can also double as dresses.
