The bold and beautiful of the sports world came out in their best attire at the ESPY (Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Award) awards on Thursday in Los Angeles, California.

The awards recognise and celebrates the achievements of the best athletes across all disciplines.

Among the many famous faces spotted on the red carpet was Russian tennis sensation Maria Sharapova.

Dressed in a blue, frilly gown, the world No 1 looked fresh as a daisy. The intense, kohl-eyes and chunky jewellery completed the stunning look.

The Slovakian mesmeriser came in a simple, yet pretty, white gown. She kept a toned-down look with no accessories, except for a small, gold clutch.

Danica Patrick can make a few hearts race.

And this NASCAR driver did just that with a printed, off-shouldered dress.
