The Best (+ Worst) Dressed at the 2012 ESPY Awards (Photos)

ESPY Awards Fashion via Babble.comESPY Awards (short for Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Award)’s took place last night to honor the most outstanding individual athletes, coaches and teams of the previous year.

Athletic super-stars came out in force from Olympic athletes, race car drivers, baseball, basketball and tennis stars and some actors who were there offering their support.

Actor Rob Riggle (known best for his correspondence on The Daily Show) hosted the event that took place at the Nokia Theatre in LA. This award show is a bit more low-key than some of the larger award shows like the Oscars, which means a mixture of different fashions for those in attendance.

  • Swizz Beatz 1 of 8

    Musician and husband to singer Alicia Keys, Swizz shows up in a gun holster (I think) and a white shirt. I don't get it ... do you?
  • Connie Britton 2 of 8

    Actress Connie looks great in this summer dress. Love the contrast with her hair, but could do without the shoes.
  • Mike Piazza 3 of 8

    Baseball player Mike and his wife look great! I love the looks on their own and love the grey, black and white together.
  • Jennie Finch 4 of 8
    Jennie Finch
    Olympic softball superstar Jennie looks amazing. I love everything from her hair to her dress and her shoes. Proof that you don't need bright fabric to stand out.
  • Alan Thicke 5 of 8

    My fellow Canadian can do no wrong. Who else could pull off a white jacket?
  • Tony Dovolani and Lina Dovolani 6 of 8
    Tony Dovolani and Lina Dovolani
    We all know Tony from Dances with the Stars and his wife Lina, both look great in their fashion choice. I love the dark blue color of Tony's jacket and the simplicity of Lina's accessories and hair.
  • Holly Peete Robinson 7 of 8
    Holly Peete Robinson
    You know, I'm not really feeling this outfit. I don't think there's anything specifically wrong with it, but it just doesn't sparkle. What do you think?
  • Drew Brees and Brittany Brees 8 of 8
    Drew Brees and Brittany Brees
    I love a gorgeous belly bump on the red carpet! Brittany, wife to football star Drew dazzles in her purple dress! Drew doesn't look half bad himself. My favorite couple of the event.
