After the successful stint at the 2019 FIFA world cup, members of the United States Women National Team (USWNT) stepped out to celebrate at the ESPY. Among those that were present was Meghan Rapinoe, and the soccer star had on a gorgeous and ‘distinct’ outfit that has got fans talking.
The 34-year-old was captured on the ESPYs red carpet on July 10 in Los Angeles. She had on a tailored black blazer and a plunging neckpiece and completed the look with short leather shorts.

Her appearance wasn’t lacking in accessories either. She wore jewelry from Beladora and Anita Ko, and gave her feet a dashing look with a pair of Louboutin oxford shoes,
Her trim cut signature hair remained the same, and reports revealed that the brain behind the daring look was her stylist, Karla Welch.
