Proving ‘Girls Just Want To Have Fun’ singer Cyndi Lauper took to the red carpet of this year’s Tony Awards with a stand out new look.
80’s icon Cyndi Lauper made a bold statement Sunday evening with a mass of wild lilac curls as she strolled the red carpet for the 74th Tony Awards in New York City.
Lauper, 68, channelled true rock ‘n’ roll style as she posed and blew kisses for photographers in an all black ensemble that included fitted pants and a fashionable Alexander McQueen jacket with puffy shoulders.
The singer completed the look with silver rings on each finger and dangling earrings, a look some have compared to presenter Kelly Osbourne.
Lauper posted three photos to her Instagram account from the night, captioning the post: “Some final looks from last night’s @thetonyawards!”
Fans were quick to share how much they loved Lauper’s new purple locks, with one writing, “That hair color looks awesome on her!!”
“Very beautiful Cyndi”
“You are magical. You always have been.”
Another added: “You’re so fabulous I can’t even”
It’s not the first time the performer has rocked a quirky hair colour having debuted a pink bob at the Olivier Awards in London in 2016.
Lauper joined a long list of celebrities at the Winter Garden Theatre to celebrate the best of Broadway, including actor Wayne Brady who took the stage with Lauper and actress Annaleigh Ashford who posed for a photo with the singer.
The Tony Awards are regularly a star studded event with the red carpet looks always a prominent feature of the awards show.
No stranger to the Broadway scene, Lauper won Best Original Score in 2013 for composing the musical Kinky Boots. She was the first woman to win the category solo.
Lauper rose to prominence on the mainstream music scene in the 1980s with hits such as Girls Just Want To Have Fun, All Through The Night, Time After Time and She Bop.
She has released 11 studio albums since 1983 and is known for her powerful four-octave vocal range.
