Off the Court and Onto the Red Carpet: The 20 Most Fabulous Athletes at the ESPY Awards

Want to see some fresh faces on the red carpet? Well, athletes like Maria Sharapova and Danica Patrick left their rackets and racecars behind last night while they attended the ESPYs in Los Angeles. We counted down the best dressed celebs from last night’s star-studded event, but we also want to show you tons of athletes got all glammed up and looked completely stunning at the award night!

As much as we love watching our fave football players —those tight white pants!— running around on the field, Tim TebowDrew Brees and Victor Cruz sure do clean up well! We love any opportunity to see athletes strut their stuff in their red carpet best and they definitely did not let us down.

We barely even recognized some of these athletes without a ball or surfboard in hand. Check out the gallery below to see them getting down with their glam selves as well as wearing their game faces!

Jessica Biel, Maria Sharapova, Zooey Deschanel Vie For Best-Dressed At The ESPY Awards

2012 ESPY Best-Dressed List

Of all the athletes and celebrities who attended the ESPY Awards yesterday at the Nokia Theatre in L.A., seven beautiful ladies really stood out from all the rest. We’ll start with Jessica Biel who nailed it in a retro, flirty, white Christian Dior Resort 2013 mini-dress. We loved the slightly bouffant ponytail and the ankle-strap Nicholas Kirkwood for Roksanda Ilincic Spring 2012 heels with the lime green soles. Hayden Panettiere went old Hollywood-glam in a sparkling, strapless Giorgio Armani column with side-swept hair. We loved the fact that she didn’t go with the expected red lip and went for glowing, sun-kissed skin instead. Then there was the gamine Zooey Deschanel in a bedazzled, gold Oscar de la Renta frock and Edie Parker clutch with a red belt and Sergio Rossi pumps. Very different from the minimal purple Armani gown Olivia Munn wore with Bvlgari jewels. You can’t have an ounce of extra weight to pull that off! Major props to Maria Sharapova as well, who looked stunning in a cornflower blue J. Mendel Resort 2013 gown. There’s more to this list, but you’re going to have to look through our gallery for all the looks. Do tell us who you think deserves the best-dressed title.
