Brooks’ style is inspiring for many reasons, but mainly because she always presents something different from the last thing she wore. While she has a silhouette that works for her body type, she is still versatile. Case in point, the Broadway star attended the Producers Guild Awards in a sheer blue number made by Prabal Gurung. To add flair, she paired it with a fur shawl that showed the spectrum of blue hues.
