The "Kinky Boots" star kept things interesting — and unconventional — at Sunday's carpet. We dig.

Those who walked Sunday's Tony Awards red carpet may have kept things classy (as usual) in floor-length gowns, dapper tuxedos and slick bow ties (this star-favored style, included) but Harvey Fierstein decided to add a bit of pizzazz to the bottom part of his standard all-black outfit.

Keeping his look casually playful, the Tony Award-winning star added a pop of color with his colorfully striped Ralph Lauren knee-high socks and New Balance limited-edition kicks.

"He loves to look down at the red carpet and the shoes. He enjoys the friendly competition with other colorful choices from the men of Broadway," explains Fierstein's date and publicist Rick Miramontez, who was styled Sunday night by celebrated fashion designer Isabel and Ruben Toledo. "This is his year. He always wins." We agree.
