The 71st Tony Awards premiered Sunday, June 11th and took place at Radio City Music Hall here in Manhattan, presented by the Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing. The Tony Award recognizes achievements on Broadway. Although there were mixed emotions regarding the performance from the host, Kevin Spacey, this show was full of outstanding talent.
Along with the talent in the crowd, the fashion was phenomenal. Not only was the Red Carpet full of those in Broadway productions, many other stars, related or unrelated to this industry, were seen there in support — looking fashionable as always, like Chrissy Teigen, who was there in support of her husband, John Legend, as well as Anna Kendrick, a former nominee.
Although there were many stunning looks, here are Downtown’s top 8 looks from the 2017 Tony Awards’ Red Carpet for this week’s Trend Report Tuesday.

Chrissy Teigen in Pamella Roland
