ESPY Best Dressed! Jocks and Stars Get Dolled Up (Photos)

On Wednesday night all-star jocks from the world of soccer, gymnastics, racing, volleyball and basketball traded in their cleats, leotards, and uniforms for glam gowns  with super short hem lines and plunging necklines. Yes, it was quick a departure from their day job! What was the motive for getting all dolled up? The annual EPSY awards! Superstar athletes from Gabby Douglas to Danika Patrick to Kerri Walsh got all glam for the red carpet and looked just as glam than the screen stars like Selena Gomez and Lake Bell that they mingled with on the red carpet.
