Last night's ESPY Awards red carpet was covered in couples,  The Shumperts-to-be, The Wilsons, The Currys, The Bryants and tons more came out to celebrate the best in sports entertainment.


Get everybody's floss-worthy looks inside...

The star athletes took full advantage of their one night to get dapper for a nationally televised red carpet awards show.  Last night's 2016 ESPYS celebrated icons, congratulated champions and recognized those who have overcome amazing odds. Were we the only ones crying through majority of the super emotional show?!  Sheesh!

The biggest stars from the worlds of sports and entertainment trekked it to the Microsoft Theater in L.A. to celebrate the best sports moments of the year:

Russell looked head to toe dapper in Tom Ford.  White dinner jackets get us every time.  Looking good Russ!

The Seahawks QB's jam packed week continues this Sunday as he hosts the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Sports Awards.  When asked on the red carpet how they manage to keep their relationship a priority while they're both so busy, CiCi said Russell is a quarterback on the field AND off the field.  He sees every angle of every obstacle and is the best planner.  Plus, it's easy to make it work when you love and respect each other wholeheartedly.  Awww.

A sexy man who can lead with a damn plan?  Swoon!

Teyana Taylor saved her wig from the previous night of honoring Lil Kim at the Hip Hop Honors and rocked it on the ESPY red carpet.
