There were plenty of strike-outs on the red carpet at the 2015 ESPY awards. Let’s face it— some athletes appear hesitant to hire the help of a stylist. But as the crowd was littered with a fair showing from Hollywood too, the wins seemed to come out on top.
All eyes may have been on Caitlyn Jenner but Ciara’s funky ensemble by Elie Saab stole the show. A gorgeous ombre that highlights her skin tone and features perfectly in a dress that drapes in all the right places. A coordinating belt cinches her tiny waist, drawing interest to the chic’ neckline. And take a look at how fabulous she and Russell Wilson look together— now that’s a well-matched couple!
Thigh-high slits like the one seen on Ciara’s maxi dress are hot right now. You don’t have to pay designer prices to find a similar look— perfect for a summer charity event, fundraiser or fancy wedding.
Check out this red and black maxi dress. It’s on sale right now at MelodicDay.com for $33.44.
Or how about this stunning party dress? It’s sure to fit into your budget at only 30 bucks at boohoo.com and is available in berry, purple, or black. Boohoo Night, Sophie Plunge Neck Front Split Maxi Dress, $30.
