Jordan Roth’s fashion sense, in a word, is fearless. Take one look at the Broadway titan’s glamorously curated Instagram (@jordan_roth) and you’ll notice his penchant for luxurious capes, crystallized couture, and chromas pushed to their extremes. He recently brought all of these loves together on the red carpet at the opening night of Moulin Rouge! The Musical, his latest production. Draped in a custom Zac Posen dark-as-midnight cape, gilded in crimson and glitzy baubles, Roth twirled in front of camera flashes, invoking the windmill described in the Parisian cabaret’s moniker while basking in yet another sartorial victory.
“Fashion is a daily opportunity to express myself, what I think, and how I feel at that moment,” Roth says. “Events like the Met, the Tonys, and opening nights [on Broadway] — the [selection] process is extended. It’s a longer period of exploration and creation, and there are many more collaborators on it, extraordinary artists that I have remarkable good fortune to collaborate with and be the beneficiary of their vision and mix my dreams with theirs, but the impulse is the same.”
