ESPYs Style Awards: Hottest Date, Best Body and some Drake too
Now that the world’s greatest athletes have been recognized for their talents and given their tear-jerking acceptance speeches, it’s time to take a look at what they were wearing and give out some highly deserved style awards. So grab your colorful bow-tie or sparkling pair of high heels (metaphorically), and let’s see who our winners are!
Best Dressed for Long Walks on the Beach: Lisa Leslie
Lisa Leslie could go straight from the red carpet to a tropical vacation in this multi-colored floor length gown. The plunging neckline showed off Leslie’s toned shoulders, while the beaded waist added a touch of glamor. Now all this former WNBA All Star needs is a piña colada and some ukulele music!
Hottest Date: Paul George
Paul George hit the awards this year with a tall and beautiful lady by his side. The Pacers star’s date wore a long sleeve and form fitting dress that complimented her tall (nearly George’s height to be exact) and slim frame. Be careful not to get the two’s relationship confused, however; this lovely lady is George’s sister… not his girlfriend. Regardless, one thing is undeniable: she’s smokin’ hot!
Best Disguise: Chris Brown
Chris Brown traded in his typical fitted tuxedo for a more unconventional red carpet look. The music superstar wore cropped trousers, a leather slouchy blazer with matching bowtie, royal blue kicks, completed with a pair of blacked-out shades. Brown kept his sunglasses on not only for the outdoor red carpet, but even while he was on stage with Blake Griffin during the awards show. He's a sunglasses indoors guy.
Most Likely To Make You Cheat On Your Girlfriend: Maria Sharapova
Let’s be honest… Maria Sharapova is equally known for her beauty as she is for her skills on the tennis court. And stepping out on the red carpet in a sexy leather and lace dress, complete with messy waved hair and sultry makeup, this blonde bombshell once again proved her ability to turn heads.
Cutest Entourage: Floyd Mayweather
A crew of big names and notables always seem to surround Floyd “Money” Mayweather. But on this year’s red carpet, the “Best Fighter” award-winner stepped out with the cutest companions he could possibly bring: his family. Floyd jazzed up his red carpet look in a fitted black and plum tuxedo, while his little ones kept it casual and classy, wearing Polos and sneakers. To top it off, he combined with Sharapova to create the biggest laugh of the night:
Biggest Flirt: Nick Young
The Lakers’ Nick Young showed off his TV hosting skills by taking on the role of style correspondent at the 360º Quicksilver Cam. Sporting a black and white suit combo and shimmering kicks, Swaggy P had a few fun and flirty moments with the female athletes on the red carpet, including Maria Sharapova.
Most Likely To Become A Model: Danica Patrick
Not only is Danica Patrick the most stylish and sexy NASCAR driver in the game, but she also has the red carpet poses down to a tee. This year, Danica wore a white bandage dress, showing off her toned figure, paired with pointy-toed shimmer pumps.
Outfit Most Likely To Be Worn To Preschool:Drake
As one of many of Drake’s wardrobe changes throughout the night, this look was surely the most playful. If you tuned into the awards, you’d know this cropped green pants, multicolored button-up with bowtie, school bus colored yellow vest, and red oversized specs ensemble was worn to portray – well, actually to make fun of – the eccentric style of the Best Comeback Athlete Award Winner, Russell Westbrook.
Best Body: Sydney Leroux
Formerly featured in ESPN The Magazine’s Body Issue, Sydney Leroux, showed off her toned body again this year wearing a sexy cutout gown. The soccer beauty had her hair pulled back with subtle makeup and jewelry… but let’s be real here, with Leroux wearing that outfit, was anyone really paying attention to her face?
Trendiest Teammates: Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook
Friends, teammates and trendsetters, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook continue to deliver style even during the offseason. The MVP rocked a forest green fitted blazer, with a classic white button-up and black bowtie, while his teammate, the #FashionKing, rocked a more unique look (or more “typical Westbrook look,” however you want to phrase it) wearing a printed-sleeved shirt, fitted beige trousers and a single gold chain. The question here is, “Who is the real (style) MVP?”
Best Hair Design: Colin Kaepernick
Colin Kaepernick didn’t stop at his outfit when it came to swag. Of course, Kaep looked great in his all blue suit and tie, but the shaved design in the quarterback’s hair added that little touch to help him stand out from the rest.
Best Dressed “Non Athlete”: Chrissy Teigen
Flawless. Do we have to say any more?
