Leslie Odom Jr. and Nicolette Robinson’s couple style didn’t disappoint at the 2024 Tony Awards! On Sunday, June 16, the dynamic duo made a striking entrance at Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater in New York City, dazzling in their matching black looks.

The “Glass Onion” star, 42, looked dapper in a black wool Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo waistcoat featuring shiny lapels, complemented by a crisp white shirt with a structured collar. Meanwhile, Robinson stunned in a black dress with a small keyhole, blue beads along the neckline, and a floor-length bow on the back. She completed her sophisticated look with a sharp bob and a pop of pink lipstick.

Odom and Robinson’s love story began in 2008 when they met during auditions for the musical “Once on This Island.” They tied the knot four years later, solidifying their bond both personally and professionally. The couple welcomed their daughter Lucille, now 7, in April 2017, and their son Able, now 3, in March 2021.

The night was particularly special for Odom, who was nominated for his second Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play for his role in the revival of “Purlie Victorious: A Non-Confederate Romp Through the Cotton Patch.” This production, in which Odom also served as a producer alongside Samuel L. Jackson, LaTanya Richardson Jackson, Phylicia Rashad, and Kerry Washington, was nominated for Best Revival of a Play.

“Purlie Victorious” tells the story of Reverend Purlie Victorious Judson (portrayed by Odom), a charismatic traveling clergyman with a scheme to save his rural hometown church and reclaim his inheritance in segregated Georgia. The play also earned nominations for Best Direction for Kenny Leon, Best Performance by a Featured Actress for Kara Young, Best Scenic Design for Derek McLane, and Best Costume Design for Emilio Sosa.

Following the play’s premiere, Odom was featured in PEOPLE’s “Sexiest Man Alive” 2023 issue, where he shared how cooking for his family during the pandemic reminded him of performing on stage. “It was almost like my 6 o’clock curtain,” he said. “I felt like I had an audience, and I would get my little applause when I did well. It was a way that I could stay connected to something creative.”

The Tony Awards, celebrating the best in theater, aired live from Lincoln Center in New York City on Sunday, June 16, on CBS and streamed on Paramount+.
