See the best looks from the 2017 Tony Awards red carpet

From Bette Midler to Scarlett Johansson and Kevin Spacey, see all the best looks from the Tony Awards red carpet.

Radio City Music Hall was packed with celebrities dressed to impress, so it's no surprise that the best show of all may have been out on the red carpet. Tall, flower-studded hedges lining 50th Street in Manhattan to serve as the backdrop for some of the most dazzling sartorial creations.

Bette Midler won big for her role in "Hello, Dolly!" and in an iconic move, the star refused to be played off stage when her acceptance speech ran a little long. Ben Platt took home the award for best performance by an actor in a leading role in a musical for his role in "Dear Evan Hansen," and his sweet speech had the crowd out of their seats.

And Chrissy Teigen was on-hand to support her hubby John Legend for his win as a producer on "August Wilson's Jitney." This award rounds out his collection of Grammys and Oscars — meaning he's only an Emmy away from snagging the legendary EGOT. We'll be watching!
