Pictures from the 18th Annual ESPY Awards held last July 14 at the Nokia Theatre in LA are out and well, most of the outfits were just ho-hum and expected at best.

There was however one bright and shining exception among the sea of ordinary dresses, and that was Emmanuelle Chriqui who was looking lovely in a little black dress from BCBG Max Azria:

Okay, so it’s hot and she’s wearing a dress with a leather bodice, but girl is pulling it off. She’s all glammed up but in a very cool and casual way, a look which I think is very appropriate for the ESPN-created, sports-related ESPY Awards.

What attracted me to Emmanuelle’s pictures is the interesting mix of the soft tulip skirt with the hard leather bodice on her dress. The sheer mesh neckline is also very eye-catching, a detail which you can see more clearly in this picture:

The sheer mesh (coupled with the leather) really adds an edgy feel to Emmanuelle’s dress. And unlike lace, sheer mesh amps up the sexiness without losing any of its edge.

Sheer mesh can be placed anywhere on a dress but of course, it’s most flattering to the face when it’s placed along the neckline. Check out these 4 LBDs with seductive sheer mesh necklines and 2 more in bright colors as added options:
