Look for Less: Ciara in Elie Saab at 2015 ESPY Awards

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!
