Get Stuff We Love
When it comes to outfits that make us swoon with delight, awards season never disappoints.
But the Tony Awards are really special. After all, how can a group of theatrical people who play dress up for a living (and eight times a week, at that) fail to inspire?
Still, pretty dresses weren't the main focus of this year's show. The hosts, actors and nominees involved all paid tributeto the victims of the recent shooting in Orlando. From James Corden's opening message ("You are not on your own") to Lin-Manuel Miranda's best score acceptance speech ("Love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside").
Their point — and perhaps the point of the entire evening — was to demonstrate that Americans cannot be scared into losing what brings us joy, whether that's fashion, art, dance or song.
With that in mind, TODAY Style rounded up our favorite red carpet outfits below for your viewing pleasure and to honor these stars who delight us with their talent and charm.
Stark and classic white with a swooping V-neck made Williams' dress choice a stellar one.
Ryan's long, nude, sparkling dress had people buzzing — along with her seemingly new look.
Nyong'o went for a blooming, floral dress and sported the season's hottest trend: off-the-shoulder sleeves.
Liu opted for a summery yellow stunner with a deep-V neckline and embroidered details.
The "Orange is the New Black" star stunned in a vibrant blue hue.
A sleek, feminine ensemble kept Ronan looking youthful and fresh Sunday night.
The actress went for a daringly unique, open-shouldered dress in the bold color combo of red and black.
The man behind the greatest moment of the night looked dapper in a classic black tux.
Russell, the original "Waitress," looked anything but blue-collar in this dazzling red sheath.
Leave it to Light to bring the drama in a sweeping black head-turner with a sheer overlay, high neckline and side train.
Best dressed of the evening? We'd say so. Krakowski may be a funny girl, but she looked seriously stunning Sunday night.
Gyllenhall may have just brought back the double-breasted suit ... and it turns out he can sing, too. What more could we ask for?
Close looked fabulous and regal in her floor-length scarlet number (creating quite the crimson trend).
Lane had fun with her outfit, the funky pattern of which was rivaled only by the elaborate costumes up on stage.
Representing "The Color Purple," Brooks stayed in the purple-blue spectrum with this gorgeous, off-the-shoulder stunner.
In a navy dress just shy of midnight black, Danes — as always — turned heads.
We're not sure we'd be daring enough to pull of this multi-tiered look, but Blanchett, on the other hand, can wear just about anything.
Everyone's favorite "Girl" went for a menswear-inspired look last night and looked futuristic and flawless.
