2016 ESPY Award Winners and Appearances

The 2016 ESPY Awards was held last night at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. With this year’s award show being hosted by professional wrestler John Cena the who’s who of WWE was definitely in the house.

Big congratulations to all of the winners, particularly  Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers who lead all of the nominees in awards last night. Another congratulatory highlight goes to Peyton Manning, Kobe Bryant, and Abby Wambach for winning the ESPY’s Icon Award which was very deserving.

Beautiful looks also filled the red carpet particularly from a few of my favorites, Lindsey Vonn wearing Michael Costello, Gabrielle Union wearing August Getty Atelier, Lolo Jones wearing Jovani, Andew Hawkins who represented the fellas extremely well, and of course Ciara who’s been sporting the hell out of Cavalli Couture before, during, and after her wedding to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. Check out the list of winners from last night…
