Prima donna

Goodness gracious, I have no expertise in music and to my ear, every single of the top twenty-four contestants on American Idol deserves to win a record contract -- but I absolutely adored watching The Phantom of the Opera in the Theatre District.

Fantastic music aside, I am enraptured with the costume in the show, particularly in the "Masquerade" scene. I spotted yellow tights lined with cartoonish black hearts and black stockings with sequined sparkles along with giant tulle bows on rich crimson tuxedo jackets -- and big hair bows on top of perfect ringlets.

Which show do you think has the best costume design?
