Sporting a longer hairstyle than usual, Hayden Panettiere went for an uber-glam look on the red carpet for the 2012 ESPY Awards on yesterday, held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Hollywood.

The actress looked stunning wearing a Giorgio Armani nude mesh strapless gown with mint-green beaded details and an open back.

I’m struck by how statuesque Hayden looks. Either it’s the dress or she’s been taking red-carpet tips from Christina Ricci.

Her figure-hugging gown was styled with a matching clutch and simple sparkly Bulgari jewels.

Beautiful side-swept curls and flawless makeup put her in the running for one of the best dressed of the night.

It’s been a while since Hayden wowed me.
