On Wednesday night, the Staples Center will host the 25th annual ESPY awards, celebrating the best that sports have to offer, both in terms of plays on the field play and good deeds done off the court.

In anticipation of the event, ESPN The Magazine hosted their “Body Issue” party on Tuesday night, allowing some of those that will be participating in the awards an extra day to go out and show off their best looks.

While some athletes were dressed to the nines, others wore outfits that kept them comfortable in their skin and on the red carpet. Everyone looked great in their own way, except for Julian Edelman, who could’ve stood to button another button or two on his shirt.

Below you can find some of our favorite looks from the ESPN “Body Issue” red carpet.
