The ladies brought some beautiful gowns to the red carpet at the 69th Annual Tony Awards. Peep shots of Jennifer Lopez, Joan Smalls, Misty Copeland, Phylicia Rashad and more inside….

Upcoming “Shades of Blue” star Jennifer Lopez is no stranger to shutting down a red carpet. And last night, was no different. Escorted in by her publicist Ken Sunshine, the Hollywood actress made her way to the red carpet for the 2015 Tony Awards held at Radio City Music Hall in NYC last night.

The 45-year-old stunna looked amazing in a strapless midnight blue Maison Valentino gown accented with gold shooting star embellishments. Unlike her super sexy sheer Versace gown at the Met Gala, JLo was more covered up bringing a more elegant look for last night’s event.

The fab mother-of-two is currently filming for an upcoming NBC series titled “Shades of Blue,” where she will play a single mother who becomes an undercover federal informant on an anti-corruption task force unit. It’s set to premiere early 2016.

American Ballet Theater ballerina Misty Copeland was on “pointe” (yet again) in a white geometric Herve Leger “Evangeline” gown. The TIME magazine cover girl, landing as the leader in the Pioneer category, sure knows a thing or two on how to work a red carpet.

Supermodel Joan Smalls turned heads on the carpet in a bold printed long-sleeve Givenchy gown accented with a high slit. Werk!

Tony Award-winning actress Phylicia Rashad graced this year’s awards ceremony looking elegant in a b michael AMERICA couture gown topped with a cape. She posed it up alongside the designer before hitting the carpet.

In 2004, the legendary actress, who’s starring in the upcoming film Creed, became the first black woman to win the Tony Award for Best Actress for her role in A Raisin in the Sun.

“Murder in the First” star Taye Diggs got dapper in a classic black Giorgio Armani suit. He’s set to return to Broadway this summer in Hedwig and the Angry Inch kicking off July 22nd at the Belasco Theatre.

E! News correspondent Alicia Quarles got stylish in a La Petite Robe jumpsuit, a Krikor Jabotian bolero, Georgina Goodman heels, a Kara Ross clutch and jewelry from Sutra Jewels, Hueb and Verdura while covering the event.

“Psych” star Dule Hill was a “classic man” flexing in a navy blue suit. Sexy.

Broadway veteran and Tony Award-winning actor Ben Vereen also came out to celebrate.

Inside….

JLo was amongst the presenters of the evening, joined on stage by singer Nick Jonas and musician Kiesza to present.

Misty took the stage to introduce a performance by the musical On The Town.

Taye also took the stage to present.

And Ms. Rashad introduced the In Memoriam tribute and performance by Josh Groban. Fab times.
