In case you weren’t one of the major sports stars or fashionable fans who attended last night’s ESPY Awards in Los Angeles, we got you inside the real thing with a little help from Maria Sharapova. The 26-year-old Russian tennis superstar played multiple roles for the event — presenter with Kevin Bacon, nominee for Best Female Tennis Player, and (drumroll please) fashion reporter for InStyle.com. She took us behind-the-scenes as she prepared for the event with her glam squad, including hairstylist Adir Abergel shown here, as she prepped to wear her J. Mendel dress on the red carpet.
