10 Best Looks from the Hamilton Opening

Fashion has come a long way since the American Revolution, and the celebrity guests and cast members did it up right for the opening of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on Thursday, August 6.

Broadway Style Guide breaks down our favorite looks from the star-studded night!

Jonathan Groff

Blue was the color of the season when it came to suits, though Jonathan Groff’s Suit Supply one will never go out of style. The actor, who plays King George III in the show, sports a skinny, black tie, which pops next to the jacket, and the white shirt with blue and black polka dots ties the ensemble together.

Nicolette Robinson

“The Affair” star was so excited to celebrate her husband, Leslie Odom, Jr.’s birthday on his opening night, so she was definitely ready to rock A+ fashion. The embroidered and beaded mini-dress complements her figure, and her bold lip pops alongside the bright colors of the fabric. Also, her braids in a half-up bun perfect the summer glam look.

Daveed Diggs
Daveed Diggs
Diggs knows how to make a statement onstage and off—whether he’s rapping a million words a minute as the Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson or sporting this purple Issey Miyake suit. The slim fit pants are expertly tailored for Digg’s stature, and the buttoned-up collar is a refreshing alternative to the standard fare. The subtle black grid pattern makes the outfit pop even more, and Diggs makes a bold choice to button both suit buttons.

Danielle Brooks

The Orange Is the New Black and The Color Purple star is rocking one of her signature colors for the evening: blood orange. The tight fit shows off her hourglass shape, and the gold jewelry and shoes are standout pieces, while her simple makeup and nude nails complete the look.

Anthony Ramos

Both of Ramos’s characters (spoiler alert) die onstage so he definitely knows how to kill it on the carpet. His plaid, gray, three-piece suit from Ted Baker is accented by his burgundy shoe laces, which match the stitching of his pocket square and some threads in the fabric.

Sarah Jessica Parker

Parker knows how to do a red carpet right, and she did not disappoint. She gave full glam with a floor-length, beaded Elie Saab gown—complete with pockets—and her teal eyeshadow popped with the color of the dress.

Jasmine Cephas Jones

The stunning actress, who doubles as Peggy Schuyler and Maria Reynolds in the musical, sported just the right amount of glam. The royal blue, sateen dress is great for a summer evening, and the low-cut halter with a full skirt accents her shape beautifully. Her subtle smoky eye pairs nicely with a nude lip.

Laverne Cox

This outfit is all about those gorgeous studded Valentino pumps, and the ruffle on the Orange is the New Black star’s little black dress draws your attention downward. The waves in her hair soften this classic look.

Christopher Jackson
Christopher Jackson
Jackson’s two-button, pinstripe suit from Billy Reid is an essential gentlemanly ensemble that would make George Washington, who he plays in Hamilton, proud. His tie adds a hint of pattern clashing, and the tan, suede shoe is transitioning us into fall.

Lucy Liu

Liu’s menswear-inspired, floral blazer pairs well with the lace, floral overlay on her white dress. The light, fresh colors are on-trend for summer, and her ponytail is a go-to red carpet hairstyle.
