Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant suited up in traditional black and white hues,layering with a fur collar coat, and check out the $650 Ralph Lauren Collis velvet loafers.

Olympic Gold medalist Gymnast Gabby Douglas was all smiles as she dazzled in her gold strapless gown, and teammate Aly Raisman went with the “All black everything”  clothed in a deep v-neck frock. Cleveland Indians pitcher Nick Swisher rolled up on the red carpet with his wife Joeann, as he donned a sharp black/white custom suit. photos via fashionbomb/swaggernewyork /mamaslatina /Usatoday
