On June 16, the best and brightest from Broadway's 2023-2024 season arrived to Lincoln Center for the 77th Annual Tony Awards. While the ceremony itself contained many memorable moments, the magical to do began before the opening number as the stars strutted their stuff on the Tonys red carpet (which was a stately blue this year). 

Statement-making colors reigned supreme across gown and suit-wearers. There were plenty of good things going sartorially at this year's Tony Awards!

Below were the most memorable daring delights from the navy carpet (click here for part two).

This article will be updated with all stylist credits as further information is received.

Category Is: Women on Fire

You name it, she wore it. While the night was barrier-breaking for female artists, women proved they had the power to steal the spotlight upon first look. While Shaina Taub and Leigh Silverman opted for stately suits, Jocelyn Bioh, Heather Simms, Kecia Lewis, and Kara Young opted for statement-making gowns.

Suffs Tony winner Shaina Taub wore a jumpsuit designed and styled by Andrea Lauer, Creative Director of Risen Division. Her bespoke hairpiece was sourced by Lindsay Block, who collaborated with Ukrainian artisan Vusyk Crafts on its creation. Taub also carried a clutch by Emm Kuo and wore shoes sourced by Eliza Yerry. Kelli J. Bartlett and Em Katz provided makeup and hair, respectively.

Nominated playwright for Jaja's African Hair Braiding, Jocelyn Bioh stunned in custom Ese Azénabor, styled by Ariel Tunnel. Bioh completed her look with jewelry by Nickho Rey, shoes by Inez, hair by Created to Create and Diva Hair Braiding, and makeup by Jessica Smalls.

Supporting Best Revival of a Play nominee Purlie Victorious, performer Heather Alicia Simms stood out from the crowd in a Jovani gown bright as a poppy. In a video with Ebony, Simms said her hair, designed by Christina Rendall, was inspired by the whip motif from the play and that, "it's me as a Black woman taking back my power and owning what was taken from us." Simms' jewelry is by Miraco and her makeup was done by Motiqua Hall. Mickey Freeman provided styling.

A Tony winner for her performance in Hell's Kitchen, Kecia Lewis looked majestic in a vibrant pink sequined gown by Brenda Brunson-Bey for Tribal Truths Collection and shoes by Dolce Vita.

Kara Young was a vision in peridot green, twirling to show off her Bibhua Mahapatra dress' dramatic billowing sleeves. Young's DeBeers jewelry sparkled almost as brightly as her long-awaited Tony Award.

Category Is: Men (Not) in Black

They make this look good! The Tony Awards are a night unlike any other, so it is only fitting that artists take a chance to play with color and pattern not typically seen in standard black tuxedos. Will Brill and Daniel Radcliffe popped in pastel and Sky Lakota-Lynch gave a refreshing wash of cream. Though black featured in their ensembles, Enver Chakartash, Emilio Sosa, and Paul Tazewell were all abloom in florals, for celebrating. 

A Tony winner for his performance in Stereophonic, Will Brill worked with Savannah White for his coordinating pistachio knit vest and pants.

Daniel Radcliffe, who also picked up a Tony for his performance in Merrily We Roll Along, looked simply magical in, dare we say, a bruised lilac suit designed by Todd Snyder and styled by Sam Spector.

Tony nominee for The Outsiders, Sky Lakota-Lynch was effortlessly cool in Bode jacket and pants, styled by Jake Sokoloff.

Costume Design nominee for his work in Stereophonic, self-styled Enver Chakartash wowed in a vintage Alexander McQueen suit with a romantic floral pattern. Alexander McQueen boots, Ted Muehling earrings, and a cheeky custom ring flaunted Enver's charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent.

In keeping with florals, Emilio Sosa, also nominated for Costume Design, kept it cool in self-styled metallic suit from FINO and slick shades.

Rounding out our men of style is Paul Tazewell, Costume Design nominee for Suffs, in an Alexander McQueen suit that sported a white flower (an emblem of women's rights). Tazewell paired his suit with a Valentino shirt and Cartier watch.
