There was nothing mellow about Ciara's yellow Toni Maticevski gown at the 2018 ESPY Awards. The "Level Up" singer's bold number featured a unique asymmetrical neckline with one off-the-shoulder long sleeve and a daringly high thigh slit to help show off her gold spiked Christian Louboutins. But Ciara isn't the only one in her family who makes style touchdowns. Keep reading to see her NFL star hubby Russell Wilson's winning move on the red carpet…
Russell Wilson is just as much of a quarterback stud off the field as he is on! The Seattle Seahawks football star ran one of his best fashion plays ever in a formal Tom Ford suit at the 2017 ESPY Awards. Russell gave off major Bond vibes in a navy blue velvet jacket over a crisp white button-up with a sleek bow tie and dark dress pants. He polished off the dapper look with patent leather square-toe Oxfords.
Heating up the pages of Sports Illustrated in a bikini is one thing, but Chrissy Teigen proved she can also start fires on the red carpet at the 2014 ESPY Awards. The swimsuit model smoldered in a cream Elisabetta Franchi jumpsuit with a sexy plunging neckline and an accented cinched waistline. She chose gold Christian Louboutins with a pointed toe to peek out past her wide-leg fitted trousers.
Halle Berry showed up looking as fierce as an athlete before game time in a black Teresa Helbig minidress at the 2015 ESPY Awards. The frock featured leather bell sleeves with a ruffled hemline in the same fabric and a seductively sheer lace bodice. Halle paired her leather-and-lace ensemble with strappy black Brian Atwood heels tied up around her ankles.
Kerry Washington shimmered her way through the 2011 ESPY Awards in a knockout Jenny Packham number. The "Scandal" star wore a glittering gray minidress with a high neckline, loose-fitting long sleeves and a sexy open back. She added a sparkling silver belt to accentuate her waist and pointed-toe Gio Diev platforms that gave her legs for days.
Rachel McAdams put a sexy spin on menswear in a red-hot Cristiano Burani suit at the 2015 ESPY Awards. The actress took her fiery look up a notch by going sans shirt underneath her structured jacket, which featured a plunging deep-V closure. She paired her ankle-length trousers with black patent leather Christian Louboutins for an added punch.
Fashion goals! David Beckham and Victoria Beckham dressed the part of sports' royal couple at the 2008 ESPY Awards. The soccer stud looked utterly dapper in a navy Spencer Hart three-piece suit with a white vest while his fashion designer wife channeled Audrey Hepburn in a pale yellow RM for Roland Mouret mididress with a unique origami-inspired neckline.
Jessica Biel nailed her fun and flirty look at the 2012 ESPY Awards. The actress donned a white Christian Dior cocktail dress with a rounded open neckline and playful bell-shaped miniskirt. But her Nicholas Kirkwood for Roksanda Ilincic platforms really made the ensemble stand out with their bold neon heel for the perfect pop of color.
Jordana Brewster likewise used a pop of color to make her shift dress stand out from the crowd at the 2014 ESPY Awards. The "Fast and the Furious" franchise star sported a taupe DSQUARED2 minidress with cap sleeves and a modest neckline but managed to turn heads with a fun array of multi-colored sequins that adorned the bottom portion of her skirt.
Gabrielle Union and hubby Dwyane Wade made a fashion slam dunk with coordinating ensembles at the 2013 ESPY Awards. The "America's Got Talent" judge deserved to be on center court wearing a mirror-embellished Marc Bouwer minidress with slashed cap sleeves and a plunging neckline. The former basketball pro perfectly complemented his wife in a classic black Lanvin tuxedo accessorized with a gray printed scarf and bold red Balenciaga sneakers. That dude's got some serious style game!
Jessica Alba wore a gleaming gold ensemble fit for a trophy case at the 2014 ESPY Awards. The actress and Honest Beauty founder dazzled in a vintage Elie Saab cocktail dress with a shimmering textured print and diagonally constructed neckline. She paired the architectural number with strappy mirrored Brian Atwood heels for even more sparkle and shine.
Serena Williams ditched her tennis gear for far more sultry duds at the 2011 ESPY Awards, and she came out a champion off the court. She wore a hot pink Rachel Roy jacket minidress with a revealing plunging neckline and fitted waist. Serena left her racket at home and instead accessorized with a gold statement necklace and sparkling platforms.
Elizabeth Olsen found the ultimate way to fuse fashion with sports in a black Saint Laurent romper at the 2017 ESPY Awards. The "Avengers: Endgame" star could've run right off the red carpet onto the field wearing her all-in-one suit-and-shorts number, though she may have had trouble running in those pointed-toe Sophie Webster pumps.
Zac Efron isn't an athlete, but the smoldering Balenciaga ensemble he wore to the 2010 ESPY Awards made us break a sweat! The "High School Musical" heartthrob looked smokin' hot in a gray-blue suit with a charcoal brown button-up and dress shoes in the same hue. Going sans tie or belt gave Zac a bit of rebellious edge while still keeping it just formal enough.
Lindsey Vonn looked like the superwoman of sports in a caped Michael Costello jumpsuit at the 2016 ESPY Awards. The Olympic skier slayed the red carpet in her fierce ensemble, which featured a draped black bodice with a plunging neckline and boss-lady shoulder pads all connected to shimmering high-waisted pants. She even traded in her snow boots for a pair of slim strappy Jimmy Choos. Just imagine the World Cup champion skiing down the mountain with her cape dramatically blowing in the wind…
Eiza Gonzalez took a more classic approach to her style at the 2018 ESPY Awards but packed the perfect punch of color with her accessories. The "Baby Driver" actress donned a strapless black velvet Rasario gown, which would've seemed simple if not for her sultry thigh-high slit and strappy rainbow Christian Louboutins.
From the ballroom to the red carpet, Cheryl Burke knows how to two-step her way around fashion! The "Dancing With the Stars" pro would've scored a perfect 10 from the style judges in her dazzling Luis Antonio jumpsuit at the 2016 ESPY Awards. Her black halter-style look featured a deep-V neckline belted at the waist and vertical glittering gold stripes fading down to dark with an ombre illusion design.
Oops, she did it again! Britney Spears wore one of her typical minidress options at the 2015 ESPY Awards, but spiced things up a bit with added sparkle and fringe. The "Toxic" pop star wore a silver Davidson Zanine frock with a deep-V neckline and glittering butterfly design throughout the bodice. Black beaded fringe dripped from her asymmetrical hemline and paired nicely with her strappy Le Silla heels.
Danica Patrick clearly knows how to get engines revving! The retired race car driver smoked her fashion competition in a unique Herve Leger minidress at the 2014 ESPY Awards. Rather than choosing one of the brand's basic bandage-style looks, her white number stood out with its one-shoulder neckline, cross-weaving up the side and a cool asymmetrical hemline while still hugging her curves in all the right places.
Erin Andrews is used to giving us the play by play as a hotshot sports sideline reporter, but if the tables were turned, we'd say she hit a home run with her outfit choice at the 2011 ESPY Awards. The "Dancing With the Stars" host wore a stunning bow-belted Naeem Khan minidress with exquisite hand-sewn floral embellishments made from metallic beads, pearls and porcelain-like petal pieces.
Maria Sharapova helped break down barriers for women in sports, so she had no problem throwing it back to the '50s in a retro-style cocktail dress at the 2013 ESPY Awards. The tennis champ looked both strong and elegant in a textured J. Mendel halter-style frock with pastel and metallic accents throughout the bodice and a sheer black panel hemming the classic bell-shaped skirt. She finished her not-your-average-housewife ensemble with triangular black Casadei pumps, which featured dainty translucent ankle straps.
