There’s nothing we love more at PEOPLE StyleWatch than a multi-hyphenate, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson certainly falls into that category. He’s a Modern Family star (and newlywed both on screen and off!), an award-winning actor for his TV and theater roles, and, with husband Justin Mikita, he’s created a line of bow ties called “Tie The Knot” which promote marriage equality. For the second year in a row, he’s smooshing a few of those hyphens together with a limited edition Tie The Knot bow tie created just for this year’s Tony Awards.

To promote the star-studded design, it seemed only fitting that Ferguson shoot a star-studded video. So he enlisted Tony-nominated pals like James Iglehart of Aladdin, Sutton Foster of Violet and Laura Benanti of — wait, what was she nominated for again? — to chat with him about their shows, their excitement for the broadcast and, of course, Ferguson’s chic neckwear, from which all proceeds will go to benefit organizations advocating for LGBT civil rights.

“When designing the Tie The Knot collection with The Tie Bar, we tried to incorporate the essence of the night yet keep it completely refined for a black tie event,” Ferguson said in a statement. Mikita chimed in, “A patterned bow tie with small stars is a statement accessory that will complete the outfit.”

Check out the video below for more on the limited-edition design, and head to to pick up one of your own.

What do you think of the design? Who are you most excited to see at the Tonys (airing live Sunday June 8 on CBS)?

If you were wondering to yourself yesterday, “What’s Macaulay Culkin been up to lately?”, well, your timing was impeccable. Because as it turns out, he was posting a photo of himself to the Twitter of his Velvet Underground cover band, Pizza Underground. (More on that here.) But it wasn’t just any photo of himself. It was a photo of himself wearing a T-shirt that featured an image of Ryan Gosling wearing a T-shirt that featured an image of Macaulay Culkin as a child. And yes, he knows it’s trippy. “Let’s get meta #ryangosling #macaulayculkin #shirt” he captioned the below photo.

The Met Gala has come and gone, but one question has remained unanswered: What did Vogue editor Anna Wintour really think of all those men flouting her “White Tie and Decorations” dress code and coming in (gasp!) black tie instead? She and Met Gala co-chair Sarah Jessica Parker (that’s them above, with fellow co-hosts Aerin Lauder, Bradley Cooper and Jonathan and Lizzie Tisch, co-founder of Suite 1521) joined Seth Meyers on his show to discuss just how that very haute receiving line feels — and their reaction to some of the male attendees who didn’t quite get the dress code right.

“I had no idea how much panic this would cause men, but the best email was from Tom Ford, who dressed many of the handsome men there Monday night,” Wintour said. “Not only did hundreds of men ask him what white tie meant, they were confused by decorations. There were a couple of people who asked if they were Christmas Tree decorations.” Meyers wanted to know just how off-base stars including Tom Brady, Kanye West and co-host Cooper were — so he pulled up their images on-screen for fashionistas Wintour and Parker to critique.

Which black-tie wearing star got a pass because his date was so gorgeous? Who got pegged as wearing “Brooklyn white tie?” And did Meyers escape their cold, appraising eye? Check out the video below and tell us: What did you think of their judgments? And wouldn’t you pay to see the Wintour/Parker comedy college campus tour? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

Met Gala 2014: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Have an Old Hollywood-Themed Date Night

May/05/2014 at 09:28 PM ET

After the all the buzz her floral Givenchy gown got last year (you remember — the one with the built in gloves), Kim Kardashian surprised us with an understated dose of glamour for this year’s Met Gala.

Kardashian selected a blue strapless Lanvin gown with a black waistband and thigh-high slit (we knew there would be some skin-baring somewhere!), teamed with black strappy heels, side-swept waves and Lorraine Schwartz danglers. And the style editors here would like to give her fiancé Kanye West props for actually paying homage to Charles James in a black tux with coattails.

Kardashian also wore a satin Lanvin design for her Vogue cover, which has us wondering if the star (who usually turns to Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy for her high-fashion moments) is collaborating with Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz for her wedding dress.

Tell us: What do you think of Kim and Kanye’s red carpet couple moment? Is this one of her best red carpet looks?
