We know what you’re thinking: how could anyone conclusively pick the top 25 hottest Olympians of all time? There have been literally thousands of athletes spanning well over a century! We completely agree, but with all the love we’ve been giving the men and women of the 2012 Games via our Top 50 Hottest Olympians Blazing London This Summer, we wanted to give a shout out to those who came before them in the Olympics‘ long, proud history of talented babes. From Muhammad Ali to Pete Sampras, Sonja Henie to Kristi Yamaguchi, it turns out being incredibly fit and profoundly talented never goes out of style. Their clothes and haircuts, however…look, few people could pull off what Flo Jo pulled off, okay? It was the late ’80s to early ’90s. Things were different back them. So enjoy ogling our 25 Hottest Olympians of All Time, and holler at us if we forgot your favorite Olympic babe. Oh, and in case you’ve never seen a young Bruce Jenner before…you’re very welcome.

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.

I’ll Have Another was wearing the roses after Saturday’s Kentucky Derby, but we all know he wasn’t the only star of the event, which has become as much about watching the attendees as it is about the horses. As in years past, celebs put on their derby best to enjoy a day of mint juleps and betting. Although there was little sun in the sky, the folks in Churchill Downs were still seen wearing everything from traditional Kentucky Derby hats to some more elaborate and daring headwear. Coco, Ginnifer Goodwin, Cyndi Lauper, Star Jones, Mary J. Blige and Miranda Lambert were among the ladies showing off straw, feathers, flowers and bows on their heads.
