Entertainers and sports stars aligned on Wednesday to celebrate outstanding achievement in athletics at the 2019 ESPY Awards.
Comedian Tracy Morgan served as host from L.A., where the red carpet attracted a roster of stylish talent ahead of the ceremony’s 8 p.m. broadcast. It’s not often that sports fans get to see their favorite athletes outside of their jerseys, kits, uniforms and sneakers, so the attendees had high expectations to step up their style game.
Lonzo Ball didn’t play it safe on the red carpet. The NBA star had on a black Dolce & Gabbana smoking jacket that tied around the waist, complete with black trousers and shiny patent lace-up dress shoes.
Meanwhile, Morgan was joined by his wife, Megan Wollover, wearing a tuxedo with patent leather shoes. Wollover looked elegant in a glittery, embellished silver dress with cutouts around the neck and midsection. She complemented the gown with silver sandals that had crisscross straps around a pointed toe.
Olympic Gold medalist Nastia Liukin made an edgy statement on the carpet, opting for a little black dress with voluminous shoulders teamed with slinky sandals. Rounded metallic studs around the shoe’s ankle and toe straps upped the fierce look. Her boyfriend, Detroit Lions football player Sam Martin, was handsome in a black jacquard suit and bright white sneakers.
