Wednesday night's ESPY Awards ceremony kicked off with a bang on the red carpet. The awards have become known, in recent years, for combining the best of Hollywood A-Listers with some of the strongest athletes in sports. The awards are being hosted by comedian and Community star Joel McHale, and so the evening is bound to be full of laughter as well as a moment sure to be incredibly moving as Caitlyn Jenner accepts the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. Basically, tonight is a combination of laughter, emotion, and let's talk about that red carpet fashion!
Purdy looked stunning in her glittery nude illusion mini dress paired with a Kotur clutch. The athlete may be best known for her time on Dancing with the Stars, but she’s also an incredibly accomplished snowboard and 2014 paralympic bronze medalist!
Miami Dolphin wide receiver Jarvis Landry looked dapper AF tonight at the ESPYs. His patterned, white suit jacket and hat combination made him look like a modern day dandy.
The Olympic hammer thrower rocked the heck out of that coral jumpsuit. The ESPN Magazine Body Issue cover girl was easily one of my red carpet faves.
NBA star Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder rocked that green jacket like no one’s business. Colored suits on the red carpet were all the rage, and he had one of our favorites.
Manning’s grid jacket was super cool on the carpet at the show as he accepted his ESPY. It was almost as awesome as him bring his daughter as his date.
Jenner’s gold sequin gown stood out on the carpet, and her signature makeup was totally on fleek as she showed up to support Caitlyn Jenner tonight.
Sawyer’s crisp, white suit for the ceremony was perfect for summer, and she looked radiant!
Russel Wilson and Ciara
Though they are equally well dressed, the pair’s subtly matching styles basically begged us to list them together. Seriously, peep that belt on Ciara’s flowing, sexy gown. Perfection, right?
The True Detective actress and star of upcoming film Southpaw’s low cut suit was totally chic especially when paired with her pulled back locks.
Soccer star and member of the newly crowned FIFA Women’s World Cup Champ team, Hope Solo, stunned in a slate gown.
Odell Beckham Jr.
Color was all the rage for men’s suits on the carpet, and we’re loving the dramatic lapels on New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr.
Tara’s patterned dress looked incredible on the Olympic figure skater, and we love her gorgeously disheveled hair.
