Cam Newton looked very pretty during postgame interview

Cam-Newton-leggings

Cam Newton wasn’t able to do enough to lead the Carolina Panthers to victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night, but he didn’t let the loss affect his postgame wardrobe. Newton still made sure he looked very, very pretty.

Newton made quite the fashion statement with some black leggings (or were those capris?) and classy loafers. He also rocked a sport coat that had just a hint of pink or purple. It wasn’t loud enough that you needed sunglasses to look at him, but it was definitely a statement piece.

Dwyane Wade might be one of the few people who truly understands Newton.

Dwyane Wade credits David Stern’s dress code for his passion for fashion

Dwyane Wade tango

Dwyade Wade is one of the most flamboyant dressers in the NBA. And for that, we can thank David Stern.

Wade has worn some of the most mind-boggling outfits and accessories you will ever see over the last several years. During a recent interview with Rob Merrill of The Associated Press, D-Wade said the dress code that Stern instituted in 2005 really got him thinking about what to wear off the court.

“It was like, ‘OK, now we got to really dress up and we can’t just throw on a sweat suit,'” Wade explained. “Then it became a competition amongst guys and now you really got into it more and you started to really understand the clothes you put on your body, the materials you’re starting to wear, so then you become even more of a fan of it.

“Obviously sometimes we push the envelope, and I think it’s because we’re athletes. We’re not looked at as guys who should wear certain things. Being flamboyant is being OK.”

The “competition” Wade referred to must involve him and guys like Russell Westbrook. We have no idea who you could call the “winner” between those two guys. One day Wade is wearing hot pink pants on his way to a game and the next Westbrook is blowing us away with some leather overalls. It’s all thanks to Stern and his disdain for baggy pants.

Russell Westbrook launches sunglasses line

Russell Westbrook frames

Russell Westbrook got into fashion after entering the NBA and developing into an All-Star, and now he has created his first product line.

Westbrook just launched a sunglasses company called Westbrook frames. The sunglasses are the hip, colorful kind that you typically see him wearing. Each model of sunglasses is named after a city in the Los Angeles area — which is where Russell is from — and the prices seem to range from $95-$145 per pair.

Maggie Vessey wears sexy one piece outfit at Outdoor Championship

Maggie Vessey outfit

Maggie Vessey is known for pressing fashion limits in the world of track and field, and things were no different this weekend at the 2014 USATF Outdoor Championship in Sacramento.

Vessey finished fourth in the women’s 800 meter final in Sacramento Sunday with a time of 2:00.17. Her aerodynamic singlet filled with holes on the sides and in the middle probably helped shave a few seconds off her time. She’s the one pictured at right behind Brenda Martinez in the image at top.

Below is a look at the outfit she wore a few days earlier in competition:

Below is what she wore at the Prefontaine Classic last month that got everyone talking:

That is definitely one way of getting some attention for the sport of track and field.

Marcus Smart has inside of draft jacket specially embroidered

Marcus Smart jacket

Marcus Smart was selected sixth overall Thursday by the Boston Celtics and showed off the customized jacket he was sporting for the draft.

The inside of Smart’s jacket was embroidered with all sorts of logos and messages that have special meaning for his life.

You can see the logo of Smart’s college, Oklahoma State, on the inside. There’s a shape of the state of Texas, which is where Smart is from, on the right side of the jacket. There’s also an “RIP Todd” on the left side. That is for Smart’s older brother, Todd, who died of cancer at the age of 33.

Smart isn’t the first player to customize the inside of his suit jacket, but we certainly like his personal touch.

Andrew Wiggins has the best jacket at the NBA Draft

Is it possible that Andrew Wiggins may have already won before being selected in the NBA Draft Thursday? I think so.

The former Kansas Jayhawks star will be wearing this gorgeous outfit at the draft and I just love it. Look at those colors. Look at that floral pattern. He’s got a full smoking jacket on and looks like a straight G.

Love it, Wiggy. Love it.

Dwyane Wade wears one last ridiculous shirt to end the 2014 NBA season

LeBron James glasses Dwyane Wade shirt

Thank goodness for Dwyane Wade and his questionable fashion choices. I’m not sure the NBA postseason would be the same without them.

Even though the Miami Heat couldn’t win Game 5 and extend the NBA season, at least Wade gave us one more terrible shirt for the road.

As Not Bill Walton on Twitter noted, Wade looked like Kid from Kid ‘N Play, while LeBron looked like he had a pair of 3D glasses on:
