Nominated for "Best Breakthrough Athlete," Mo'ne Davis attended the ESPY red carpet rocking frilly white dress with asymmetrical ruffles on one shoulder, a defined waist and short, but full, skirt. She matched her white strappy shoes to her dress, and kept the accessories minimal — simply wearing a pair of dangling diamond earrings and a diamond encrusted bracelet. Her long hair was pulled back into a half up style, falling straight down her back. She looked absolutely stunning.
You may remember Mo'ne Davis as the first girl in Little League World Series history to pitch a postseason shutout, averaging a pitching speed of 70 mph, when other girls in her league average only 50 mph. This triumphant feat threw Davis into the spotlight, reminding everyone that throwing like a girl is indeed a good thing, which is why she is one of the most talked about attendees at the ESPY Awards tonight. But this evening, Davis is also getting attention for her pretty white dress.
I think Davis took the right approach with her ESPYs ensemble. She is, in fact, only 14 years old, so I'm happy to see that she didn't try to look too grown up like you see with a lot of child stars (although I suppose sports stars are slightly different from TV stars). She kept her look young, playful and girly, just like a normal 14-year-old girl.
It seems as though white is Davis' color of choice for red carpet events. She's rocked the color to several events in the past, including the UP2US Sports Gala earlier this year. But hey, when you know what works, you might as well stick with it.
