Neil Patrick Harris Shines at the Tony's-- Literally! Love it or Hate It?

When it comes to formal apparel, men are usually forced to make due with a standard-issue black suit — with only the most daring stars, like Johnny Depp and David Arquette, deviating from a totally classic red carpet look. Which is precisely why we loved spotting Neil Patrick Harris cut a stylish figure at last night’s Tony Awards in a black suit that appeared to out-shine the stage lights. And while the silhouette was elegant, he gave the look style by choosing his Calvin Klein Collection tuxedo in a chintzed wool flannel that had just a touch of sheen rather than a more basic matte fabric. Tell us: Would you want your escort to wear a suit with shine — or do you prefer him to keep his look totally classic for formal events?

The look was cool and refreshing. I agree – it reminded me of the shark skins – but thought it was pretty daring. I want one now!

I was at the Tony awards telecast on Sunday, and to be honest the suit looked a lot better in person. It was really beautiful and he looked great. I wish I could say the same for Carrie Fisher–Sheesh!
