Our favorite sports stars turned into style stars at the 2012 ESPY awards in Los Angeles Wednesday night.

The annual event is a chance for top athletes to shine outside their arenas/fields/stadiums, and these jocks definitely cleaned up nicely.

Vernon Davis, tight end for the San Francisco 49ers, was dapper in a wine-colored tuxedo jacket, polka-dot bow tie and a pair of nerdy thick-rimmed glasses (like those all the NBA ballers have been rocking) to accept his award for "Best Game."

We also loved Demaryius Thomas's grey and black three-piece suit. He was hands down our pick for the best-dressed athlete of the night. And the Denver Bronco star walked away with an ESPY for "Best Moment."

New York Giants wide receiver (and model) Victor Cruz was stylin' and profiln' in a navy Calvin Klein Collection suit and stripped button-down shirt, which was left open a bit to show off some of those money-making muscles.

Athletes weren't the only ones celebrating the night's festivities; Nas and Swizz Beatz were also on hand to entertain the crowd with a performance of "Summer On Smash."

And let's not forget about the ladies. Model Chanel Iman was a vision in white as she strutted down the red carpet in a semi-sheer, body-hugging dress.

Check out all the winning looks from this year's ESPY awards in the slideshow below. Who do you think scored big on style?
