Caitlyn Jenner's ESPY Awards Look: All the Scoop on Her Atelier Versace Gown and More!
What did you think of her glamorous white gown?
When Caitlyn Jenner took the stage at the ESPY Awards to accept an award for courageously going public with her gender transition, we knew her speech would be inspiring (and it was) and her style would be on-point (and it was). With the help of stylist Jen Rade, who has worked with Angelina Jolie, Jenner wore a striking gown and sideswept hair to take the stage and deliver her message about the importance of education about transgender issues and bringing light to the challenges the community faces.
Accepting the Arthur Ashe Courage Award from U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team star Abby Wambach (who introduced her as “the courageous, the stunning Caitlyn Jenner”), the star wore a custom Atelier Versace cream gown with ruching at the faux-wrap waist. The dress had a medium V-neck, long sleeves and a high slit. And in her all-white look, she stood out from her children and stepchildren, all of whom wore fully black looks by the time the show aired.
“Picking out this outfit: Okay, girls, I get it!” Jenner said after taking the mic onstage. “You’ve got to get the shoes, the hair, the makeup — the whole process, it was exhausting. And next, the Fashion Police. Please be kind on me; I’m new at this.” (Versace, for its part, wholeheartedly approved, Tweeting the below.)

She accented her elegant gown with $3,450 emerald drop earrings from Beladora, shiny waves swept over one shoulder and glossy rose-colored lips, plus Stuart Weitzman heels and a coordinating clutch by the brand. And of course, she had one truly significant accessory by the end of the night: Her trophy, in honor of her courageous year.
