Espy Awards Red Carpet

The ESPYs were a few days back and if you don't know, the ESPYs are put on by ESPN, which is an American sports broadcasting giant.  Naturally, all the awards are sports related.  There were not surprisingly some very stylish people at the event.  Athletes now are celebrities in their own right and get photographed almost as much as Hollywood stars.  That's not to say that there weren't some bad outfits (hello Serena Williams...please leave the tennis balls at home next time!). 

Let's start with the real stars of the show, the athletes:

Skier Lindsey Vonn wore a gold patterned minidress by Mandalay.  She obviously has a great body and I  like the idea of the dress (gold, short, flirty) but the execution is just off the mark.  It is something I could see someone from the "Real Housewives" in, and that is never a good thing.

Serena Williams in Rachel Roy.  Pink looks great on her, but you know I can't love a look with that much boobage.  It's not even cleavage - it is full on boobage!  No, no, no.

Fellow tennis pro Maria Sharapova is a stylish lady, and comes up a winner again.  This black Alexander McQueen is a great example of a LBD done right.

Race care driver Danica Patrick looks cute in Vivienne Westwood, albeit a little unsure of how to pose on the red carpet.  

The Dallas Mavericks.  Generally a stylish bunch of cute, tall boys!  I'm not going to hate on that, not even on the guy with the white jacket and a black bow tie.

There were also some Hollywood celebrities who attended and there were some great dresses:

Laila Ali in Tadashi Shoji.  She looked very pretty but also sexy.  Cute shoes too!

I thought Keri Washington was the best dressed of the night, in Jenny Packham.  She looks stylish and sexy without being revealing.

Actress Rachel Nichols in Versace.  I love this shade of green. 

Emmanuelle Chriqi in Herve Leger.  Dress looks great on her but I don't get why she paired those shoes with it.  Would loved to have seen something more strappy and in a neutral colour because the dress stands out on its own.
