Looking Tony

Broadway’s Big Night Arrived. Last night’s Tony Awards sparkled in Radio-City-Music-Hall-Red. A highlight for me was seeing a few of the actors from my adventure with WOR’s Joan Hamburg broadcast at Sardi’s, including: Judith Light, winner in the category Best Performance by an Actress in Featured Role in a Play, Alan Cumming, a presenter, and Jane Lynch, who performed.

The evening’s fashion moment came when Cyndi Lauper won Best Original Score for the hit musical Kinky Boots. I thought Cyndi looked chic in all-black with lace detail, with touches of gold hand candy and earrings providing just the right accents: as always, she was an original. When presenter Jane Krakowski (another fashion favorite) bowed down to Cyndi as she accepted her award, it was an emotional and sweet moment.

At Sardi's - wearing my Prabal Gurung for Target dress

At Sardi’s – wearing my Prabal Gurung for Target dress

When I bought my Prabal Gurung for Target dress* I kept the tag on. It was so charming: the tag had boxes for a girl to check – this dress is suitable for first date, the kiss, girl’s night, dinner and a movie, meet the friends, weekend away, meet the parents, the proposal and engagement party … and all I could do was imagine the wonderful life my dress and I would have. Indeed, these are all fabulous reasons to wear this dress but now there is one more box to add to the list: appearance at Joan Hamburg’s “My Big Tony Party and Broadcast at Sardi’s“.

Joan Hamburg is a New York icon: a radio personality on WOR Radio since the 1970s, she is a leader in her field and wonderful in every way, full of integrity and intelligence and wit. My mom introduced me to Joan Hamburg at least twenty years ago and I have been listening to her ever since. So when I had the chance to win tickets to see the taping of Broadway stars at Sardi’s I jumped, dialed the number, spoke with Joan on the radio … and won! The live broadcast did not disappoint: my dress and I watched Joan interview Jane Lynch, Alan Alda, Alan Cumming, Richard Kind, Judith Light, Kathie Lee Gifford, Vanessa Williams, and many more. And then my dress and I met Joan Hamburg which was truly the highlight.

You always remember the clothes you wear for special occasions. That is how they take on a life of their own and keep your dreams alive. On this day my mom and I met Joan Hamburg and I will remember the day and the dress always.
