Theatre stars returned to the Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall on Sunday 12 June for the first time since the start of the Covid pandemic.
The 75th awards ceremony was hosted by Ariana DeBose, with presenters including Cynthia Erivo, Samuel L Jackson, Sarah Silverman, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Laurence Fishburne, and Bebe Neuwirth, among others.
The long-awaited event saw nominees, cast and crew descend upon the red carpet decked out in glitz and glamour.
Luxurious black and crisp white seemed to be the order of the evening, but some stars decided to stand out in pops of colour.
Here are our favourite looks from the Tony Awards 2022 red carpet:
Host Ariana DeBose, who starred in West Side Story last year, arrived on the red carpet in a black sequinned gown with a midriff cutout and a thigh-high split.
The sparkly number was a custom Boss design, accessorised with Or & Elle necklace, earrings, and rings.
Irish actor Ruth Negga, was nominated for best actress in a play for her Broadway debut in Macbeth.
She donned a halterneck gown with a diamante-studded skirt by Armani Prive, with a Tiffany platinum and diamond choker and a Tiffany Victoria ring.
He might be taking a hiatus from acting to “refill the well”, but Tick, Tick, Boom star Andrew Garfield made time to attend the 75th annual Tony Awards dressed in his best.
Garfield wore a black velvet Tom Ford suit jacket with a matching bow tie over a black shirt, trousers and shoes.
Award-winning singer-songwriter Cynthia Erivo appeared ethereal in a hooded white gown and cape by Giambattista Valli Haute Couture.
Erivo, who has previously won a Daytime Emmy Award, a Grammy Award and a Tony Award, also wore Tiffany accessories – including a diamond nose ring – and her signature talon nails were painted pale green.
Utkarsh Ambudkar, who appeared in Tick, Tick, Boom alongside Andrew Garfield, channeled the pearly kings and queen for his red carpet look.
