Kim: Well, well! It turns out it wasn't just Eva Marie who turned up at the 2019 ESPYS! We also got to see the Raw Women's Champion, Becky Lynch, social media correspondent Cathy Kelley, and the CBO of WWE, Stephanie McMahon. When I first looked at Cathy's dress, I was wondering how it even worked, until I saw a closer shot. Turns out, there's some nude sheer material between the cut-out that goes all the way down her right arm, keeping everything together. I adore the mix of long sleeve/sheer sleeve, and super high slit/full length gown. Stephanie kept things fierce, yet still professional in this bold red jumpsuit. The colour looks so nice on her, and I love how for accessories, along with a unique necklace and bracelet, she always wears a Connor's Cur bracelet or two. Becky's dress is hands down my favourite. Like Cathy (And Eva's), the material is so eye catching. I'm usually not a huge fan of one shoulder dresses, but the material alone is enough for me to fall in love - it looks like it was soaked in sparkles. She looks so elegant and sophisticated.
Brie: I just had to add in a couple of thoughts here :)..Hi! Yes, it’s me, Brie..I still exist! Life has been impossible lately but I am going to try my best to keep the site going. I have a bunch of post ideas…and no time to put them together. Ugh. My love to Kim for jumping in! Which brings me to some thoughts on this year’s ESPY looks: I’m a little bored with black, especially for summer red carpets, but my ennui was swept away by the unique cut and beautifully done illusion panel of Cathy’s gown! It managed to be dramatic and classic at the same time. The black tone worked in her favor by highlighting the standout silhouette and she wisely let that be the major statement. Her simple ankle strap heels were the perfect accompaniment, along with her sleek ,simple high bun – like, yaaaaassss, girl! I am so here for the up-do! I have wanted one in a number of Cathy’s looks so I am bouncing up and down over this. A+ from top to bottom! Equally stellar is Becky’s one-shoulder sequined gown! I’m gathering my jaw up off the desk honestly. The strong shoulder design gives the piece a super-trendy 80’s vibe, the exposed shoulder makes it subtly sexy and the white sequins are gorgeous, eye-catching and summer-appropriate. Her sideswept hair looks ahhmazing - the waves! The volume! I’m so jelly rn. And it makes her shoulder-brushing white crystal earrings stand out beautifully…which is perfect because they make a stunning accompaniment to her gown. Their bold but simple chic ties the look together in precisely the right way. A matching clutch completed her fabulous look. I’m over here wishing Becks would do something like this for the Hall Of Fame – it would make a good run at the top 3 for sure! (Speaking of which, yes, I still intend to try to get that post up (feeling so sheepish I could sink through the floor. It’s a massive post though and my free time has been somewhere south of zilch). Stephanie’s red jumpsuit is less formal than the two sequined pieces, but this brilliant red looks incredible on her and adds enough punch to make this choice appropriate for a less formal award show like the ESPYs. Her black YSL Tributes complete the look and work nicely, though I confess I might have been tempted to go for a fancier sandal to up the formality just a tad (these Sophia Webster’s would have done the trick). A selection of bead and natural stone jewels accented Stephanie’s look. Again, I might have gone for something a touch more formal, but I love how unusual her pendant is – the unexpectedness of the mixed jewels adds an intriguing twist of meaning, while highlighting her décolleté, pulling the look together so nicely that it succeeds marvelously.
Kim: The former WWE Diva who became known for her All Red Everything look has changed her signature shade since her wrestling days, now rocking what she calls Purple Reign. Natalie Eva Marie, and her husband Jonathan Coyle, went to the 2019 ESPYS in coordinating outfits that showed off her evolving style. This long sleeved, floor length, backless gown is form fitting, with a deep v neck and side cut-outs. The fabric is an absolutely stunning sparkly purple hue that is sure to catch everyone's attention - if the actual design of the dress didn't do that already! Jonathan matched his wife's look with a clean, sharp suit and purple dress shirt. With Eva's outfit being so bold, the more simple style of her necklace and earrings works so well because it doesn't distract the overall look. I also love how her hair is slicked back and all pilled up . I tend to prefer up dos with backless dresses, and this one is definitely an UP do - I don't think I've seen a braided top bun so stacked!
