Photo Flash: Cynthia Erivo Spotted at New York Fashion Week

Tony Award winner, Cynthia Erivo, took a moment from designing Miss Celie's Pants to take in the sights at The Blonds presentation at New York Fashion week. The star joined luminaries, including Orange is the New Black actress, Dascha Polanco, at the show and looked smashing in a slinky, metallic ensemble.

Cynthia Erivo is a multiple award-winning actress who has made a name for herself on both West End and Broadway stages. Erivo made her Broadway debut reprising her starring role as 'Celie' in the critically acclaimed revival of The Color Purple. She first played the role in 2013 at London's Menier Chocolate Factory, earning rave reviews and an Evening Standard Theatre Award nomination for Best Musical Performance and a WhatsOnStage Award nomination for Best Actress in a Musical. Her performance on Broadway earned her the Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical, as well as the Drama Desk Award, Theatre World and Outer Critics Circle Awards and a Drama League Award nomination.
