On Wednesday night, legends, rookies, celebrity sports enthusiasts and more gathered at Hollywood;’s Dolby Theatre for the 2022 ESPYs, hosted by none other than 2022 NBA Finals MVP Stephen Curry. In the fashion of any great awards show host, Curry, who also took home the Best NBA Player Award, made a few costume changes during the evening, exemplifying perhaps the best aspect of the ESPYs: Where most awards shows are a blitz of gowns and glam, the largely male-dominated world of sports means the ESPYs are inevitably a showcase for the gents.

Suffice to say, the fellas were clean on the ESPYs red carpet. While can recap all the winners and memorable moments of the 2022 ESPYs here, we’re here for the fashion, which you can get into in our gallery below.
