ESPN hosted its annual sports awards last night and so today I put together a collection of what I found to be some of my favorite outfits. In no particular order.
Brooklyn Decker looking like Barbie in a soft-pink dress. Although a little low cut, the dress is so clean and pretty it does not scream "scandalous." The color compliments her really well. Her heels are the perfect accent, too, a neutral color but topped with adorable bows.
January Jones appears backstage with Shaun White and Zac Efron. I love the structure of her dress (Versace). The neckline is interesting, and the negative space in the dress shows some skin in unconventional places, in an elegant way. I'm a fan of its asymmetrical look, top to bottom. Also notice the detail of the fabric; the difference between the main part of the dress and the band that wraps around the neck and down keep the dress from being too plainly white .
Carlos Bocagenra's guest is wearing a great blue dress. It's gorgeously form fitting and the lighter blue accent the shape of the body in all the right ways. Plus I just really like the use of two blues. And Bocagenra's shirt and tie combo doesn't look too bad, either. Overall, the couple is very well put together.
Jennie Finch's little black dress has a little pizazz with a nicely draped sleeve, that uses a metal zipper as a fringe.
Cheryl Burke. First off, I love shiny things. The dress is a good color and draped very well. And the shoes are killer.
Erin Andrews looks gorgeous. (Again, shiny.) The banded dress seems to be a popular look now and I love how these work with the body (the different directions and sizes). It's flattering and cute.
Jenn Brown in an insanely fun dress. The frills, the mesh, the off-the-shoulder look, and the fact that it is yellow, all around works very well.
Hailey Baldwin with her father, Stephen Baldwin. The detail on her dress is gorgeous! I love the waist detail all the way up to the shoulder. It's very young, very pretty, and a great color on her.
Jill Wagner. The color and pattern is awesome and the contrasting back is unexpected, intricate, and way cool. I'm also sort of in love with the construction of the dress around the hips.
Plus, I love her shoes!
Niecy Nash showed up in this sparkly number. I really like the pattern. To me this is a fun, insanely cute, young and glitzy party dress.
Marisa Miller is gorgeous. The drape-work and detail of her dress, despite being simply black, is beautiful - and she wears it so well.
Ashley Greene is another beautiful girl. She showed up in Versace, as well. Some will disagree with me, but I love this dress, too. Versace is doing very well with negative space and mixing retro styles with modern looks and ideas. I think this dress is daring and I don't see many people being able to pull this off, but it works here. I love this look and Greene wears the color so well.
Rudy Garcia has an awesome look here. The red works throughout. He pulls off shorts and Converse Chuck Taylors on the red carpet.
Zac Efron with Ashley Greene. Efon managed to pose for just about every single picture like a model. I very infrequently see a dark brown look so good with another dark blue/black. This look is so clean and sharp - and he's not even wearing a tie.
Andy Samberg appeared onstage as "Paul the octopus." Need I say anything else?
