Sunday marked the 67th annual Tony Awards and Broadway brought every bit of its spectacle to Radio City Music Hall for all of the world to see! Once a year we get the chance to see our favorite Artists of Color come out of character and into their own! On display last night were so many jaw dropping looks. Here is a look at our Top 10 Best dressed Tony attendee’s!
Do you agree? Who would you include in the Top 10?
Tony Tuesday is back, but this time with a different spin. As a result of Tony season, instead of featuring artists of color who have already won Tony’s we will be featuring those who are nominated this year (specifically in the leading role category for now). Today’s feature is Cicely Tyson!

Currently you can see Ms Tyson in The Trip to the Bountiful through July 7th (for which she is nominated for the Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play). Sidenote-Condola Rashad (Phylicia Rashad’s daughter) is also in this show and has been nominated for the Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Play.
Cicely Tyson’s career began in a beauty salon. Her hairdresser asked Tyson to model at a hairstyle show. “At the hair show, she was spotted by a photographer from Ebony magazine, and began her successful career as a model. Within a few years, she was among the most successful black models in America.
