Lisa Leslie Pairs Sneakers With a Dress on the 2022 ESPYS Awards Red Carpet – Footwear News
Fashion was definitely front and center at the 2022 ESPY Awards held at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, Calif. on Wednesday night. Steph Curry hosted the annual event, which brought out some of the biggest and brightest names in sports and entertainment.
Lisa Leslie was among the many famous faces to come forward and show up for the star-studded affair. The WBNA legend made an angelic arrival on the red carpet in a sleeveless white dress by Valentino. The floor-length dress featured a plunging V-neckline, lightly ruffled hem and was held with a black belt from the Italian luxury fashion house.
The former professional basketball player continued to upgrade her look with dainty dangle earrings, a dainty choker necklace, bracelets and a diamond ring. For glamour, Leslie opted for shimmery eyeshadow and a matte red lip. She styled half of her hair in two twists while the rest cascaded down the side of her shoulder.
Leslie’s shoes were the highlight of her ensemble. Instead of completing her look with pumps or sandals, the four-time Olympic gold medalist’s look opted for a pair of black Nike sneakers. The sleek styling featured leather uppers, a sparkling Swoosh logo, and a chunky White outsole.
