The 67th annual Tony Awards came to Radio City Music Hall on Sunday night — and brought with it a crowd of very chic celebrities. The Broadway-meets-Hollywood set turned out a range of red carpet wear, from Scarlett Johansson's sexier Saint Laurent ensemble to Anna Kendrick and Angela Bassett's more glamorous gowns. Inside, there's more Tonys-induced sparkle from the likes of Sienna Miller and Debra Messing — all you have to do is keep clicking.
The 67th annual Tony Awards rolled into Radio City Music Hall in NYC on Sunday to recognise achievements on Broadway. Host Neil Patrick Harris, who ran the show for the fourth time, walked the red carpet with David Burtka and kicked things off with a big musical number that included performers from almost a dozen Broadway musicals — as well as Mike Tyson dancing on stage. Best actor nominee Tom Hanks had wife Rita Wilson by his side, while Jake Gyllenhaal looked handsome in a crisp suit and bow tie after popping up at Spike TV's Guys Choice Awards on Saturday in LA. Annie's Jane Lynch took the stage to perform during the show but posed solo on the red carpet where Modern Family's Jesse Tyler Ferguson, in a custom bow tie from his Tie the Knot organisation, stuck by fiancé Justin Mikita's side. Presenter Anna Kendrick chose a Donna Karan Atelier gown, and past Tony winner Scarlett Johansson wore an all-black Saint Laurent ensemble for her onstage appearance with Alan Cummings.

We saw a bevy of stars frock up in their red carpet finest this past weekend for American theatre's night of nights, The Tony Awards. Amanda Seyfried drew our attention in a major way, sporting a sleek and simple, but oh-so-covetable combo of wet look 'do + tangerine lips, while YSL's new face Jessica Chastain made us envy her perfectly coiffed locks even more by matching metallic smoky eyes and peachy keen cheeks to her hair. Emma Stone drew the perfect line between messy and structured with thanks to a textured up 'do, and 2 Broke Girls star Beth Behrs nailed her modern, luminescent beauty look brilliantly. Take a closer look.
Sunday night's 2012 Tony Awards celebrated the year's best of Broadway. Neil Patrick Harris emceed the show and caught up with his fiancé, David Burtka, afterward. Honours were handed out to big winners like Once and Peter and the Starcatcher, which netted eight and five Tonys, respectively. Andrew Garfield and Phillip Seymour Hoffman were passed over in their best actor categories, but their Death of a Salesman director, Mike Nichols, won his ninth Tony for directing. The production also won best revival. Other statues went to best actress in a musical Audra McDonald for The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess and best leading actress in a play, Venus and Fur's Nina Arianda. Best actor in a musical went to Once's Steve Kazee, and the corresponding actor in a play prize was handed to James Corden for One Man, Two Guvnors. It was a star-studded night with appearances from Jessica Chastain, James Marsden, Amanda Seyfried and Hugh Jackman. Hugh was actually a winner and received a Special Tony Award from wife Deborra-Lee Furness. He wrote on Twitter, "Thanks to my amazing wife for presenting my award last night at the tonys. that was a moment i will never forget." Andrew might not have gone home with gold, but he was still able to mark the evening with girlfriend Emma Stone.
It was a big evening for stage actors and theatre fans on Sunday thanks to the Tony Awards in NYC. There were plenty of fashionable ladies on the red carpet, including a Marios Schwab-clad Jessica Chastain and Amanda Seyfried in edgy Givenchy. Jessica was one of the evening's presenters and was especially excited to snap a picture with Broadway legend Bernadette Peters. Hugh Jackman and his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, smiled for the cameras, as did a long list of leading men like Paul Rudd, James Marsden and Matthew Morrison. Andrew Garfield walked the red carpet without his girlfriend, Emma Stone, but she joined him inside the Beacon Theatre. He was up for the best actor in a feature role Tony for his work in Death of a Salesman, but lost the statue to Peter and the Starcatcher's Christian Borle. Death of a Salesman did, though, win for best revival of a play.
When it comes to red-carpet fashion there's usually the case of the good, the bad and the Make It Stop! Nicole Kidman fronted up to the Aussie premiere of The Golden Compass in 2007 in a rather severe silver Balenciaga suit which drew unflattering comparisons to the Tin Man, while Cate Blanchett chose an eerily similar style pantsuit by Armani Privé for yesterday's Tony Awards. Kudos for Cate's new pixie crop ... but what do we think of the silver threads?
