"Welcome to the 66th Annual Tony Awards, or as we like to call it, 50 Shades of Gay," host Neil Patrick Harris joked during his opening monologue to the crowd of singers, dancers, actors, producers, directors, playwrights (and all of their plus-ones) huddled into New York City's Beacon Theatre for the live telecast. First-time attendee and upcoming Broadway star of The Heiress Jessica Chastain, in a sheer Marios Schwab design, couldn't wait to get on stage to present. "I love the Tonys," she told InStyle.com. "This is a deal! I've watched it at home and I'm so excited to be here." Other guests included Amanda Seyfried (in Givenchy), James Marsden, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Emma Stone (in Narciso Rodriguez), and Andrew Garfield (in Louis Vuitton). See more moments in the gallery.
