Wednesday’s ESPY Awards drew big sports names like Tim Tebow, Jeremy Lin, Eli Manning … and Jessica Biel? Yes, the one annual award show honoring major athletes got a dose of Hollywood glam thanks to appearances by some very pretty stars.

Biel was one of the night’s first presenters, joining Tebow on stage while wearing a wedding-white Dior dress and Nicholas Kirkwood platform heels with neon accents (plus that gorgeous ring). Zooey Deschanel likely got pulses racing, too, when she arrived in a glimmering, form-fitting dress and Sergio Rossi heels.

But the athletes weren’t to be forgotten: female stars like Maria Sharapova — in a sheer blue J. Mendel gown, Jimmy Choo heels, Giuseppe Zanotti clutch and Lara Bohinc jewels — and Lindsey Vonn — in a flowing cream dress, Swarovski accessories and Giorgio Armani makeup — flaunted their fine forms in Oscar-worthy looks.

Sure, Biel and Deschanel are used to red carpets, but Sharapova and Vonn used the night as a chance to ditch their uniforms and go glam — and we think they succeeded. Tell us whose looks you liked best in our poll below!
