Judith Light Goes Dark in Ribbed Gown and Pointed Pumps at Tony Awards 2022

Judith Light went sleek at the 2022 Tony Awards.

The Emmy Award-winning star hit the red carpet at Radio City Music Hall in a textured black gown by Thom Browne. Light’s Browne number featured a long-sleeved silhouette in a satin-like texture that caught the light, elevated with horizontal panels that created a modern take on the classic ribbed texture. Finishing Light’s piece were sharp structured shoulders and a floor-length skirt.

Finishing Light’s ensemble, styled by Kevin Michael Ericson, was a gleaming silver link necklace studded with diamonds from Briony Raymond New York, as well as a sparkling Verdura cocktail ring.

When it came to shoes, Light’s footwear wasn’t fully visible beneath her gown’s long train. However, while raising her foot in a one-legged pose, the “Ugly Betty” star’s footwear was revealed to be black pointed-toe pumps. Creating a streamlined appearance, the sharp style was finished with thin stiletto heels totaling 2-3 inches in height.
