17th Annual ESPY Events Sizzles With Best Dressed Celebrities !!

The awards presentation will be hosted by Samuel L. Jackson and televised on ESPN Sunday, July 19, at 9 p.m. ET.

Seventeen-time Winter and X Games medalist and 2006 Olympic gold medalist, Shaun White is the first X Games athlete to win gold in both summer and winter events. Recently, White took home a Winter X gold in Slopestyle and SuperPipe, making him the only male athlete to win SuperPipe gold four times.

The ESPY Awards are meant to honor athletic achievement, but that doesn't mean it isn't a stylish affair. On Wednesday, professionals from both the courts and the catwalk gathered to celebrate the year's best style.

White is joined in the nomination by James Stewart (motocross), Kelly Slater (surfing) and Ryan Scheckler (skateboarding).

"It's an absolute honor to be nominated for an ESPY,” said Stewart. “I am proud to be in the company of the other nominees not only in my category but within the show as a whole. This is a very prestigious deal."

Venus Williams' kimono gown is gorgeously unique, and well-accessorized with her silver necklace.

On the women's side, skiing's Sarah Burke has Winter X Games SuperPipe hardware from every year since the sport’s debut in the X Games, including back-to-back gold medals from 2007 to 2009 and silvers in 2006 and 2005. In 2007, she became the first skier to win an ESPY Award, winning for Female Action Sports Athlete of the Year. An innovator in skiing progression, Burke was the first woman to land a 720, 900 and 1080 in competition.
