When Cicely Tyson took to the stage Sunday to accept her Tony Award for lead actress in a play for her role in "The Trip to Bountiful," both men who were watching with me reacted — to her dress. The ultra-structured, purple-satin creation "looks like if you touched her, it would cut you," said one. "That's just weird," said the other. They aren't fashion critics, obviously. I think the word for the gown is "formidable," as in inspiring awe and wonder. Just like the actress. So far, I've seen nothing to indicate which designer was responsible. Er, deserves credit for the look. For full coverage of the Tonys, check out our Envelope blog.
