The 2016 Tony Awards took place last night, bringing some songs, laughter, and levity to an otherwise somber day. The fashion was also bright, with stars like Kerri Russell, Cate Blanchett, and Allison Williams stepping out in a rainbow of hues. Take a look at the best looks of the night, below—and yes, it's okay to hum show tunes as you scroll.
Allison Williams looked sharp in a white suit by DKNY.
Her black nails, rimmed eyes, and metallic clutch added a little grit to the look—and it worked. "The Tonys were the perfect antidote to the sadness we all felt in the wake of the events in Orlando," Allison wrote on Instagram. "The Beacon was full of love, inclusion, diversity -- and there was no sign of the evil with which those acts were committed."
Hamilton star Phillipa Soo looked sweet and chic in a white gown by Prabal Gurung. With a "cold-shouldered" silhouette, the dress glittered with hand-embroidered Swarovski crystals and snow-shaped sparkles. The actress paired the look with snake-leather sandals.
Actress Zainab Jah had a total princess moment in what looked like a flute of champagne, rendered in silks and sparkles.
Jourdan Dunn wore a pink dress by Zac Posen. And, holy moly, look at that thing move! Dunn's fresh, luminous skin was an example of one of the evening's beauty trends. (Tellin' ya: contouring's out.)
Zac Posen also made this sculptural red gown for Lena Hall; the actress swiped on a coordinating look. Several stars wore silver ribbons to acknowledge the Orlando tragedy.
New mom Keri Russell looked gorgeous as always in a crimson look from Monique Lhuillier. The style had metallic accessories on the shoulders and wrists, and a deeply plunging neckline.
Nikki M. James lit up the room in an orange gown by Rubin Singer.
Lucy Liu looked radiant in Zuhair Murad Couture, paired with flushed cheeks and a light wash of copper eye shadow.
Renee Elise Goldsberry accepted her award in a show-stopping (get it?) yellow gown embroidered with black flowers.
Danai Gurira paired her yellow Rosie Assoulin dress with striking blue shoes. What is it about a yellow dress?
Claire Danes looked poised and relaxed in a navy dress by Narciso Rodriguez. Fun fact: the floral wall was made up of some 100,000 roses, and was designed by Raul Àvila, who also handles flowers for the Met Gala.
On the red carpet, Renee Elise Goldsberry represented the end of the ROYGBIV spectrum in this violet stunner from Marc Jacobs.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead's black, Zuhair Murad Couture dress was stitched up with thousands of sequins.
That merits a closer look. The details!
Cate Blanchett wore an edgy (surprise!) asymmetrical look by Louis Vuitton. Like Allison Williams, she used black eyeliner to tough, dramatic effect.
Actress Krysta Rodriguez looked chic in a her strapless black-and-white dress, but we have the sense it was a little... tight. She joked on Instagram that she needed a friend to release her from her "Dior cage."
Lupita Nyong'o's off-the-shoulder Boss dress had beads laid out in a bright floral pattern.
Vanessa Nadal, Lin-Manuel Miranda's wife (and the muse for Lin's profoundly moving sonnet) also wore a bright, floral-patterned dress. Cooler yet, she carried an Edie Parker Clutch that said "A. Ham." Seems like it brought Lin some luck!
