Stage and screen star Kristin Chenoweth knows a thing or two about elegance. Last month, the Emmy and Tony award-winner (who has covered everything from Broadway to country and Christian music) released her first album of American Songbook classics, "The Art of Elegance," proving once again why she's one of entertainment's most diverse and talented stars.
An inspiration whose quirky-meets-classic style with a down-home approach that makes her relatable to many, Kristin shared with me that to her, elegance is: "Staying true to who you are, living your authentic self. It might not be everyone's cup of tea, but it's your truth... therefore elegant."
To help fans to define what “elegance” means for them, Chenoweth shared examples with Show-Score from her own life. Check out the photos she shared below, proving that she's a true master of the art of elegance!

“There’s elegance in dueling divas.”
The star will bring elegance to her upcoming solo Broadway show (Diva #1!), "My Love Letter to Broadway." With music direction by Mary-Mitchell Campbell, presented by James L. Nederlander, the limited engagement begins November 2nd at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre and will run through November 13th.
“When your conductor and pianist is a beautiful, classy lady... that's elegance.”
"Sometimes it's hard to find elegance, especially in a world where 15 minutes of fame is everything," Chenoweth added. "Whenever I feel sad or lonely, I find that giving a smile, a hug, or just doing something for someone else fills you up. You have a different spring in your step when you give... so the real secret is when you give, you get. I'd say that could make someone feel pretty elegant."
"Elegance in the simple things."
"Definitely elegance in having fun and being silly."
“Full circle elegance. A little girl from Oklahoma in front of a full orchestra.”
"I will of course do a few songs from the record," she added about her upcoming Broadway show. "I really want to keep it classy, elegant... [designer] Christian Siriano will be helping me with my costumes. My hair and makeup will be bumped up from my everyday look, but not over the top. And trying to be the best artist I can be will hopefully translate into elegance for the audience."
"There’s always elegance in the natural you."
