Tony Awards 2016 Red Carpet: All the Looks You Need to See

Before James Corden takes the stage as the host of tonight's Tony Awards, and before the musical with an entire section of Etsy devoted to it performs, there's the fashion. For the second year in a row, Vogue EIC Anna Wintour has approved the outfits of the awards show's most important attendees, due to the fact that she was reportedly (and understandably) horrified by the number of "mermaid fishtail strapless sequin gowns" in Tonys past.

Another side effect of Anna Wintour's involvement in the Tonys? Models. Along with the nominees and Broadway fixtures, there's a parade of models to fashion-ify the red carpet. But besides fashion folk, expect to see performers, presenters, and nominees, from Lin-Manuel Miranda and the cast of Hamilton to Lupita Nyong'o, Jenna Maroney herself (Jane Krakowski), Michelle Williams, Jessica Lange, Uzo Aduba, Claire Danes, Saoirse Ronan, as well as both Barbra Streisand and Oprah. Scroll through the gallery above to see the rest of the attendees in their Broadway best.
