What do Rashida Jones, Kendra Wilkinson, Condi Rice and Venus and Serena Williams have in common? They were all at last night's 2009 ESPY Awards at LA's Nokia Theatre, wearing - in most cases - clothes.
Serena Williams may look a little bridesmaid, but I love these graceful lines on her.
And Miranda Kerr is the bride! Albeit an incredibly glamorous one.
Jaime Pressly's mini kind of reminds me of what the evil trophy wife wears to her elderly mogul husband's funeral on a soap/one of those romance novels where all the wardrobe seems mired in 1984. Just picture it with a huge hat.
It's really striking how carefree Condoleezza Ricelooks now compared to...well, you know. Bright colors and a big smile make her look like a different dame!
Don't you wonder if Kendra and Condi were forced to talk? And what they said? And if she's hard to talk to in this dress - although I'm sure Kendra was totally un-self-conscious! And, from the waist down, it's extremely demure.
Rashida Jones can do almost no wrong in my book, but I'm not loving the fit of this - at least, in motion.
Venus Williams is perhaps the only woman in the world who could wear this caftan - and not the other way around. Some would say a tall lady shouldn't do a lot of pattern - I say they can and should!
Kristi Yamaguchi's right: self-exams are important. So are comfy shoes. Either, though, is optional for formal situations.
