Rita Wilson is nothing short of a stunning survivor!

Less than two months after undergoing a double mastectomy and reconstruction for breast cancer, the Fish In the Dark Broadway star stepped out to attend the 2015 Tony Awards in New York City.

Wearing a form-fitting Tom Ford black dress with a double-scoop neckline, the 58-year-old looked healthy and happy as she walked the red carpet with her son Colin Hanks close behind.

"I feel great," she told E! News Sunday night. "When you're doing a Broadway show, you have a family at the theatre and you have a family at home and I had so much love during the whole entire process. I am very, very grateful." 

She later added that she was "not fighting" the disease anymore and that she had "won" the battle.

Perhaps it's a little thank you present for all of his support. Maybe it's just a perk of being Wilson's son. Regardless of the reason, Hanks was able to enjoy a star-studded evening with his special mom from a great view.

.@ColinHanks, my son, and I @TheTonyAwards," Wilson shared from Radio City Music Hall. "Just sat down! Great seats!"

Throughout her battle and subsequent recovery with cancer, Wilson has demonstrated plenty of strength and hope in front of both her family and fans.

Nearly a month after her surgery, the actress announced she would resume her role on stage in Fish in the Dark. She would also make an appearance on one of David Letterman's final late-night episodes.

"I feel blessed to have a loving, supportive husband, family, friends and doctors and that I am the beneficiary of advances in the field of breast cancer and reconstruction. I am getting better every day and look forward to renewed health," Wilson recently shared. "I hope this will encourage others to get a second opinion and to trust their instincts if something doesn't 'feel' right."
