Irish actress Laura Donnelly stunned on the Tony Awards red carpet last night.

The 36-year-old Belfast native attended the star-studded bash thanks to her work on The Ferryman, a play depicting life during The Troubles.

She was nominated in the Best Actress in a Leading Role category, but sadly did not walk away a winner on the night.

However, The Ferryman won the prestigious best play award at the New York awards show.

Laura’s partner and Ferryman writer Jez Butterworth praised her work on the play when he had a moment to speak to the audience following the win.

“I don’t care if you see my play or not, I’m just gonna talk,” he said.

The Irish actress looked every inch the star as she wore a floor-sweeping purple gown by designer Marchesa.

The dress featured a series of three-dimensional flowers which cascaded to the floor in layers.

Laura had her makeup done by ethical and cruelty-free makeup artist Justine Jenkins, who has worked on famous faces such as Aisling Bea, Fearne Cotton and Laura Whitmore.
