WNBA star Skylar Diggins hit the red carpet in style at the 2017 Footwear News Achievement Awards (FNAA) tonight in New York.
Diggins sported a cropped sweater with a collared shirt underneath, which she paired with shiny pants and lace-up booties.
The basketball pro added height to her 5-foot-9 frame in her pointy-toe lace-up pumps. A white stripe emblazoned on the side of her shoe continued the athletic vibe of the sweater.
On the red carpet, Diggins talked about motivating young women to succeed and serving as a strong role model.
“I talk to other women who aren’t involved in sports and have other crafts they’ve perfected. And I say, ‘Just do that,'” she said. “Do whatever speaks to your heart; stay true to yourself. Be competitive with yourself. And to me, you can take that into any aspect of life.”
Diggins also discussed her tips for health. The athlete likes to work out every day to stay in shape, and she likes to cook, choosing healthy foods with “fresh, fresh veggies.”

As far as her beauty routine goes, Diggins likes to be conscious about both what she’s putting in her body and what she’s putting on her body: “I try to keep my skin and stuff together because you know I sweat a lot. I try to make sure I’m together,” she said.”
