14 Seriously Stunning Looks From the 2016 Tony Awards Red Carpet

Broadway celebrated its finest on Sunday night with the 2016 Tony Awards -- and despite a night filled with somber tributes to the Orlando shooting victims and messages of "love is love is love," the stars were still dressed to the nines.
