Los Angeles, CA (CNS) – The 2009 ESPY awards saw celebrity sports stars strut their fashion style on a “green” red carpet in an attempt to offer a carbon neutral event.
ESPN used solar and wind power to generate energy for the press tent, while sports and entertainment celebrities took to a red carpet made from post-consumer recycled fibers to music playing from a DJ booth powered by portable solar panels.
Australian golf superstar Anna Rawson was spotted wearing a stunning dress from the Donna Karen Collection to the event. Former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice was also seen wearing a beautiful red dress from the DK Collection.
Samuel L. Jackson hosted the event to commemorate the best moments of the year in sports. Other attendees included Tiger Woods, Michael Phelps, Dana Torres, Demi Moore, Kobe Bryant and Rob Lowe.
The 2009 ESPY’s will air on Sunday, July 19 at 9:00 pm ET on ESPN.
