The ESPY’s is an important time when athletes can ditch those uniforms in favor of pricey couture.
This is the moment when athletes prove to the world that they can be more than just world class champions, but also burgeoning fashion stars. From Simone Biles to Steph Curry and even a surprise appearance from former first lady Michelle Obama, everyone was there and their best formal wear. We take a look at some of our favorite looks.
Professional Ski Racer Lindsey Vonn wowed fans when she showed up to the ESPY’s red carpet wearing this black Monique Lhuillier beaded dress. There to present the Best Male Athlete Award, Vonn was surely the one who stole the show.
Olympic gymnast Simone Biles had an amazing night, taking home two awards. She accepted her awards for Best Female Athlete as well as Best Female U.S. Olympian all while wearing this stunning one shouldered royal blue dress with a train that cascaded perfectly as she made her way up the steps.
Winner of the Best Male Athlete Award, Russell Westbrook chose to be different in these green trackpants with a black open shirt. It was a nice break from the sea of suits.
Possibly the most attractive couple in sports, Steph and Ayesha Curry were spectacular in their coordinating ensembles. Steph chose to set off his wife’s sequined jumpsuit with a black tux. The flared leg on Ayesha’s jumpsuit was a modern and edgy touch.
Now this is a sport’s awards ceremony, however, the appearance of Michelle Obama couldn’t go without acknowledgment. The former first lady was the talk of the show opting for this black Cushnie et Ochs dress. She was there to present the Arthur Ashe Courage award to the late Eunice Kennedy Shriver, who was an advocate for adults and children living with intellectual disabilities.
