An early best-dressed contender, the actress is presenting during the awards ceremony.

Sarah Paulson is radiant in white at Sunday's Tony Awards in New York.

Styled by Karla Welch, Paulson stepped out in a white lace and silk chiffon Rodarte dress, embroidered with pearls. The gown is part of Laura and Kate Mulleavy's fall 2017 collection.

The American Crime Story actress paired the modern and textural look with dramatic drop earrings by Los Angeles-based jewelry designer Irene Neuwirth and a ruby red Judith Leiber clutch.

Paulson is among the evening's presenters, along with Orlando Bloom, Tina Fey, Mark Hamill, Taraji P. Henson, Scarlett Johansson, Anna Kendrick and Olivia Wilde.

The 71st annual Tony Awards, hosted by Kevin Spacey, airs live Sunday at 8 p.m. ET (tape-delayed on the West Coast) on CBS.
