Celebrities lit up New York City last night as they descended on the Big Apple to honour stars of the stage, at the annual Tony Awards.

The 75th annual Tony Awards returned to New York's iconic Radio City Music Hall, as the stars and minds behind some of the theatre's standout shows gathered to celebrate the stage community for the first time since the outbreak of Covid-19.

It was also the first time the glamorous award ceremony, which was founded in 1947, was televised across the United States – so pressure was on the stars to show up and show out, and that they did.

From slinky black gowns and avant garde creations, to luxurious suits even a vintage Versace moment, celebrities from Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Hudson and more dressed up to the nines for the event.

It proved to be a momentous occasion also, as Hudson received her first Tony Award, making her a member of the exclusive EGOT club (a winner of an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony award).
