Actress Saoirse Ronan is no stranger to the red carpet, so it’s little surprise that her look at last night’s Tony Awards ceremony was picture-perfect.

The star – who made her Broadway debut back in March with The Crucible – looked stunning in a floor-length barely blush gown with a subtle torso cut-out and soft fishtail end.

The 22-year-old ensured that nothing distracted from the simplistic elegance of the figure-hugging Stella McCartney dress by accessorising only with a pair of simple drop earrings and a thin gold cuff on her wrist.

She allowed her fair complexion to take centre stage with a barely-there makeup look created by New York-based makeup artist Talia Sparrow.

Speaking about the star's style, Talia told InStyle: "We went for a modern and romantic look with youthful, dewy skin…we wanted to keep the look clean and fresh, while sculpting without contouring."

The Brooklyn actress’s look was completed with a low-key hairstyle which had been loosely pulled back into a low braided bun.

The popular and highly acclaimed actress co-presented an award on the night with Girls actor Andrew Rannells.

The star-studded event was hosted by comedian James Corden, who opened the show with a heartfelt tribute to the victims of the Orlando shooting.

On Saturday, Late Late Show presenter James Corden revealed he was feeling anxious about hosting his first Tony Awards ceremony this weekend.

And as news of the worst mass shooting in US history broke that night, the British comedian's task was made all the more difficult.

Yesterday afternoon a tweet was posted to the Tony's official Twitter account stating that the entire ceremony would be dedicated to those affected by the mass shooting which left 50 people dead and 53 injured.

It read: “Our hearts are heavy for the unimaginable tragedy that happened last night in Orlando.  Our thoughts are with the families and friends of those affected.  The Tony Awards dedicate tonight’s ceremony to them.”

And 37-year-old James met the challenge perfectly as he paid tribute to the victims of the Orlando shooting in his opening speech.

With his back to the audience, speaking directly to the camera, he said: "On behalf of the whole theatre community and every person in this room, our hearts go out to all of those affected by this atrocity. All we can say is you are not on your own right now. Your tragedy is our tragedy.”

“Theatre is a place where every race, creed, sexuality and gender is equal, is embraced and is loved."

“Hate will never win. Together we have to make sure of that. Tonight’s show stands as a symbol and a celebration of that principle. This is the Tony Awards."

Numerous attendees on the night were spotted wearing a special translucent ribbon in remembrance of the victims of the attack.

Among them was How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris and Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett.

Helen Mirren caught everyone’s attention last night as she stepped on to the red carpet of the Tony Awards.

The 69-year-old wore a white embellished floor length gown with flowing sheer sleeves as she attended the awards ceremony which took place in New York’s Radio City Music Hall.

She was nominated for best actress for playing the Queen in Broadway transfer of The Audience. This role has already seen her win an Oliver Award for the London production, and an Oscar for portraying the Queen on the big screen.

It was a night to celebrate for Helen as she won the prize for her role as Queen Elizabeth II and looked amazing while collecting her award.

Dame Helen, posed for snappers on the red carpet in New York last night with her husband by her side and warded off competition from Mad Men star Elisabeth Moss and Geneva Carr who had also been nominated.

The actress and her husband, playfully showed their affection for each other on the red carpet and have been married for 20 years.

Her glitzy earrings and bag added to the overall elegance of this flawless attire as Helen took to the stage to accept her award from the gorgeous Bradley Cooper.

British actors and plays dominated this year's Tony's, known as America's top honour for work in theatre.
