Happy #TBT!!! Yesterday’s Espy Awards show went down here in Hollywood, CA at the Nokia Theatre. The show was hosted by Drake…I couldn’t figure that out, but he was actually hilarious. I forgot he started out as an actor. Some of the hi-lights include all of the skits Drake did of course. Especially, the Drake and Blake Griffin skit and when he transformed into Manny Pacquiao, smh, lmao! Some other great moments were the acceptance speeches. Gay football player Michael Sams’ story and speech had me in tears. He was honored with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. It was sad to see my favorite sportscaster Stuart Scott, though. He is phenomenal. He was awarded the Jimmy V Perseverance Award. His speech had me in tears as well, especially when he spoke about his daughters and called his youngest up on the stage. Whew. I couldn’t take it. Sigh. Great moments.
On to the fashion on the red carpet. This past season we’ve seen a lot of athletes stepping up their fashion game…well attempting to (eh hem, Michael Westbrook). As well as some of our favorite rappers. So, I was extra curious to see who would be wearing what at the sports worlds Oscars. Here are some of my top picks for best dressed:
Man in electric blue, Kansas City Chiefs football player, Brandon Flowers. I’m not mad at this color. It’s summertime and he looks dapper and stylish. Loooves this dress on dancer Cheryl Burke. She looks great!
John Legend’s wife Chrissy Teigan in a flesh toned jumper suit. Loooves! Danica Patrick killin it in the asymmetrical bodycon white dress. Weeerk!!
Wrestler, David Taylor, looked good in this classic gent-style look. USA Soccer player Deandre Yedlin in this haute ensemble. Loves the color combination. This is definitely a Gents Today look!
NBA ball player, Demarcus Cousins kept is classy in his dark blur tux. Niiice! Sportscaster, Erin Andrews, looked stunning in her white full, flare cocktail dress.
Hott couple (although I’m still not convinced they are actually together. Somethings not right about them together..side eye-ing). Anyhoo, Iggy Azelea and Nick Young are killin it, hot couple style.
Awww, Isaiah Austin, looks dapper in his three-piece suit. Loves three-piece suits! This kid is over 7 feet tall. I’m so glad he took the extra step and got him a nice, tailored suit instead of showing up with an ill fitted ensemble of not dressed up at all. Good look! My girl, softball star, Jenni Finch lookin good. Loves her!
Jessica Alba looked a-mazing in this gold one shoulder sparkly dress. This dress is everything, in my opinion!! Jordana Brewster in this flesh-toned, mirror embellished, number. She looks great.
Kevin Durant did his thing opting to pop in a little color with this emerald-green blazer. Cute! Glam-athlete Lisa Leslie in this color full flowing maxi dressed. I thought she looked a-mazing!! This was a good look for her. Very feminine and sophisticated.
Track and field star Lola Jones stunned in this red two-piece ensemble and tennis player Maria Sharapova looked sweet and sexy in this black laced skater dress. Good job ladies!
Another hott couple, Indian Pacers Paul George and Callie Rivers also killed it. I love to see couples dressed and complimenting each other on the red carpet. Both looks are great, sans her booties. I’m really feeling this two-toned jumper Robin Robert wore accessorized with black diamond from the David Yurman collection. Loves me some David Yurman colored diamonds! She looks elegant, sophisticated and fun!
Overall, the show was pretty good. I enjoyed watching. Well, until next year!
