    Last night, the Tony Awards took place in New York City’s Beacon Theater to celebrate the best of Broadway.

    It was a night filled with heavy emotions, after news of the events that went down in Orlando, Florida, over the weekend shocked all of America. However, while there were a number of heartfelt and moving speeches, the show did go on with the expected laughs, performances, and fashion. While there was the usual smattering of elaborate ball gowns, many guests chose to channel a much more casual elegance than seen in the years past, from the simple silk slip dress worn by Claire Danes to the minimal nude gown worn by Saoirse Ronan.

    One accessory, in particular, was worn by all in attendance—a twisted silver ribbon, designed by Broadway costume designer (and six-time Tony winner) William Ivey Lon, adorned lapels in solidarity with the victims of Orlando’s mass shooting.
