9 Tony Awards Red Carpet Dresses To Get You Excited For The Upcoming Ceremony

Soon we will be stopping everything when some of the world's best talent gets together for one night of musical awesomeness. Yes, the Tony Awards air on Sunday, June 7th, and that means bold looks and even bolder personalities will be hitting our televisions screens in a little over 24 hours. Although it doesn't rank as highly as say, the Oscars, when it comes to fashion-related anticipation, there have been sartorial standouts through the years that deserve to be noticed.

The Tony Awards stage has featured many great performances and incredible talent over the years, but the fabulous looks on the red carpet are often over looked. From sleek and sexy dresses to over-the-top get ups, you never know what you'll see. These outfits deserve our recognition!

With big (and stylish) names like Elizabeth Moss, Bradley Cooper, and Carey Mulligan among those nominated for Tonys this time around, the red carpet is bound to be unforgettable this year. I can't wait to see how it plays out. Kristen Chenoweth is hosting alongside Alan Cumming, so you can also be sure to see some fabulous on-stage style.

In past years we've witnessed simple yet stunning style at the Tonys, but the stars who stepped out of their comfort zones really stole the show. I can't wait to see the looks this year, but until then I'll be swooning over these past best dressed Tony Awards looks.
