It's an important day for drama geeks and theater enthusiasts everywhere. The 2017 Tony Awards is happening in New York City and this year, House of Cards' Kevin Spacey will hosting Broadway's biggest night. Even if you don't follow the latest musicals and shows, fashion fans can still appreciate the dazzling looks that will be worn by the nominees and guests walking the event's star-studded red carpet. From the brilliant Bette Midler (whose up for her first competitive award) to the always beautiful Sara Bareilles, I'm certain everyone will show up dressed to impress.
One of the most exciting parts about the Tony Awards, besides finding out who will walk away as the winner, is seeing your favorite actors and actresses dressed as themselves, expressing their own personality through fashion. You often are only able to see your favorite theater stars in character, on stage, wearing the same costume play after play. For this reason, stars go all out at the Tonys, dressed to the nines — and why shouldn't they? After countless, tireless nights performing, the Tony Awards is a chance for them to celebrate themselves and their craft, as well as have a little bit of fun while they're at it.
Without further ado, here are all of the fabulous and fun looks from the 2017 Tonys.
