Best actress nominee Cristin Milioti wowed the Tony audience Sunday night with this beautiful, vibrant green strapless gown by Jason Wu.

Milotti, a native of Cherry Hill, may not have won the Tony for best actress in a musical - that award went to Audra McDonald who won for her role in Gershwin's Porgy and Bess  - but she definitely should have won best dressed of the night. (Local theater-goers remember her performances at Cherry Hill High School East.)

Colleague Howie Shapiro had this to say about Milioti's on stage performance:

It was a revelation to hear Cristin Milioti speaking in her native Cherry Hill English. Milioti plays a young Czech immigrant in the musical Once and speaks with such a convincing accent, you'd think she was born to it. For her role in that show, she's nominated as best actress in a musical.

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
