Purple popped up as a trend at the 66th Annual Tony Awards this weekend. Although sadly, our younger crop of stars didn’t exactly wear the color well. Laura Bell Bundy‘s purple embellished gown with the sweetheart neckline is so shiny it hurts our eyes. She has got to step away from the satin! We also can’t believe that Amanda Seyfried messed up. It’s hard for her to look bad because she’s so damn gorgeous. Her face her is just stunning with that slash of red lipstick, but the purple Givenchy dress with the loud orange belt just doesn’t work. We normally love orange and purple together, but the problem here is that the dress looks like a slip. These two should have taken a page or out of Bernadette Peters and Ellen Barkin‘s books.
Bernadette, at 64, as a an absolute knock-out in an eggplant dramatic Donna Karan gown. Ellen, at 58, is effortless in a purple lacy L’Wren Scott gown. The hair and makeup could have been worked on, but that’s just a small quibble. We’re hoping we look as good as them when we get older, because Ellen and Bernadette are seriously foxy! And poor Laura and Amanda were simple outfoxed this time around.

What was in the water when these ladies were growing up? ‘Cause we’ll have some! The 2011 TONY Awards took place yesterday at the Beacon Theatre in New York City and we’re in awe of the slew of all the “older” actresses that walked the carpet. We’re not being derogatory about age at all. We genuinely think that the so called young Hollywood lot could learn a thing or two from ladies like Edie Falco (aged 47), Ellen Barkin (57), Brooke Shields (46) and Marg Helgenberger (52) because they looked incredible. Christie Brinkley looked pretty damn fine too, but we didn’t like the strapless blue gown she wore. And God Bless her soul, we love you Whoopi Goldberg, but what the hell were you wearing? She had some bizarre hat and an outfit that looked like it was made from cheap curtains on, which you’ll able to see in our gallery below.
A word about the gentlemen during the evening. Could Neil Patrick Harris (he was the host of the show) and partner David Burtka get any more handsome? Al Pacino could have taken a couple of styling tips considering he wore a weird headband, but his girlfriend, gorgeous Lucila Sola (who is 40 years younger than him) didn’t seem to mind. Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Rock, Matthew Broderick, Don Cheadle all suited up too, so take a look at the pictures and tell us what you think.

Happy Passover! Today Jews around the world celebrate God “passing over” the houses of the Jews when he killed the first born in Egypt. In honor of this special day, we are republishing our fabulous list of the top Jewish Hollywood Beauties. Maybe you can’t have leavened bread, but there are plenty of hot buns in this gallery to make up for it! L’Chaim!
