Kobe Bryant Crutches And Injury Boot At EIF Gala, NBA Baller Still Looks Dapper (PHOTOS)

A ruptured Achilles tendon may have prematurely ended Kobe Bryant's NBA season, however that doesn't mean the baller is completely down and out.

In fact, Kobe was all smiles as he stepped (er, hobbled) out on the town Thursday night to attend the annual Entertainment Industry Foundation's (EIF) charity gala in Beverly Hills.

Despite the addition of crutches and an injury boot, the 34-year-old star managed to look quite dashing in his tailored black tux. We've seen crutches on the red carpet before and it wasn't pretty, so it was nice to see Kobe bring a high level of swagger to such an awkward sartorial situation.

It also helped that his beautiful wife Vanessa was right by his side looking fabulous in a complementing tuxedo ensemble. The basketball wife donned a black-and-white Saint Laurent dress, complete with a mullet hemline to show off her gorgeous gams. We're not usually fans of celebrity couples dressing alike, but these two pulled it off nicely.

Here's a look at Kobe and his wife at last night's EIF gala. Isn't it fab to see Kobe hit the town for a great cause despite his serious injury?
