Gabby Douglas In Izmaylova – 2013 ESPY Awards

Gabby Douglas In Izmaylova - 2013 ESPY Awards

The 2013 ESPY Awards (a sports version of the Oscars) took place yesterday evening at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California.

Olympic gold medallist Gabby Douglas’ hair was the main topic of discussion during the 2012 London Olympics. Last night it was all about the dress.

She looked sexy wearing an Izmaylova Fall 2013 black strapless silk-and-leather dress with a crystal belt, which she styled with a Swarovski bronze python ‘Nirvana Star’ clutch and patent-leather black pumps.

Kohl-rimmed eyes and a black manicure completed her look.

As much as I would’ve loved to have seen her in something more summery, or a pop of colour, this is a great look for her. Sexy, chic and complementary to her athletic frame.

    She looks like a child who got dressed in her sexy mom’s closet.

  • Rebecca Z

    She is dressed a little too old, but she looks gorgeous and is clearly confident and having fun. Generally I would object, but she is so poised without being stuffy–I say let her have fun.

  • GGG

    Selena Gomez and the Jenner girls has been wearing stuff like this for ages. I think it’s fine.

    • KatieKate

      Pretty sure you just made our case.

  • Lalaine

    I’m sorry but that dress screams hooker to me.

      The styling doesn t help much. Dark, heavy and cheap..
      Too bad, she s such a cute and pretty girl!

  • CreoleLady

    I like this only from the neck up –makeup, hair, pretty smile, all on point. So disappointed she is wearing black leather and pumps. It’s LA. It’s July. I don’t understand.

    • Jess


      there’s a time and a place for everything.

    • KatieKate

      And it’s so in flattering.

    • Nadine

      Whoa, Gabby!

  • Ahot

    Wow, even though it might not be totally age appropriate. She is looking very feminine. Love the confidence.

  • Kathy

    I’m getting a total Halle Berry vibe from this. Nothing wrong with sex appeal, but Gabby is still a teenager. IMO her wearing black leather to a summer event is both age- and season-inappropriate.

    • kane

      Good call. Which is a shame because it really doesn’t go with the vibe/glimpse of personality I get from her face.

  • bb

    she looks gorgeous, so pretty but she’s not even 18 and this looks ages her.
