2017 ESPYS Red Carpet Roundup

Posted by Rachel Watkins

There were many other stars from sport and screen at the 2017 ESPYS on Wednesday (July 12) in LA.

Lindsey Vonn: Putting on the glitz with an embellished LBD, the Olympic skier donned a Monique Lhuillier fringed mini paired with Sophia Webster ‘Rosalind’ sandals. However, ice skates would seem almost just as suitable, as the frock would also make for quite the va-va-voom figure skating costume.

Russell Wilson: The football pro cut a dapper profile in a luxe Tom Ford ensemble, proving that the summer velvet trend is not exclusive to the female set.

Zosia Mamet: Despite her favoured towering platform shoes, Zosia duly impressed me in this Miu Miu red ruffle dress, which saw her take baby steps towards a more sophisticated style. The frosted lip also needed an upgrade, and the necklaces were unnecessary, but these were baby steps, after all.

Simone Biles: Plagued by fit issues and creases, this Alexis Monsanto dress had potential given its radiant sapphire-purple hue. But, nothing else worked in its favour, as even the styling was overcooked with Charliel Apson jewels and head-scratching shoes.

Issa Rae: While I appreciate her more directional approach in this Dries van Noten Spring 2017 design, her accessories didn’t follow suit. Her jewels—especially the necklaces and cross pendant—along with the black pumps created an oddly dated scenario. An Edie Parker clutch rounded out the look.

Draya Michele: The leg jut was not lost on Draya who wore a Tadashi Shoji Fall 2016 gown with Saint Laurent sandals. I do appreciate her simplified approach to styling the look, which helped marginally increase the elegance quotient.

Jeremy Renner: With yet another rendition of summer velvet, this midnight-navy jacket just seemed even more warm-ish with the tonal navy shirt underneath.

Nastia Liukin: At this point, I was simply relieved to see a greater sophistication factor in play with this red Zachary The Label corset gown. The glamour continued in her statement earrings and centre-parted locks.

Maria Shriver: I’m not sure this Monique Lhuillier Resort 2017 frock really jived with Maria’s style personality. Regardless, the high-low silhouette suffered from the visible creases, an awkward length, and metallic shoes that didn’t fit the picture.

    Zosia looks nice, but I didn’t have her pegged as an ESPYS kind of girl. The outfit does work though!

    I’d never thought I’d say this, but Zosia is the best out of this bunch. Especially the fabric of Issa’s look reads showercurtain. Maria reminds me for some reason of a wedding cake, and I find Draya’s look dated with all those crystals.

    The ESPYs is one of those award shows where no one seems to know exactly what the dress code is, not even the attendees themselves. Draya and Nastia are my favorites, even though both look like they’re going to prom. I actually like Jeremy Renner’s look.

    I am totally enjoying Issa Rae’s red carpet choices. It’s her shoe game that disappoints here but I like the rest. I had no idea she has such great gams.

    Not sure if I can say I like the dress itself, but Draya just can’t be denied here.

    Other notable mentions: oh, Simone. Gotta love her enthusiasm though. The same goes for Maria I suppose. Nastia’s dress is, in spite its arguable minimalism, rather difficult to pull off and I do think she falls into the boxiness trap.

    Simone: WDOTY contender

    Nastia is my favorite here.

    Issa looks great.

    If there’s a red carpet and someone plans to be on it, they have to rise to the occasion.

    Still, I wonder what it could look like for observers and critics to place these events in better cultural contexts. The tone here doesn’t seem to do that, and the expectations might be a tad unreasonable.

    I only like Zosia here.
