The United States National Women's Football Team had a blazing day. After celebrating a record World Cup win in France with a ticker parade in New York City, the entire team of 22 women traveled to Los Angeles for the ESPY Awards and won the trophy for the best team. Of course, Megan Rapinoe and her now legendary lock of purple hair wore a badass outfit on a red carpet dressing: a tailored blazer and dressed shorts.
With her teammates, Rapinoe is makeup and combed in the plane, which Carli Lloyd shared when she took the mic. Rapinoe has added several necklaces to the set, as well as oxford shoes and white socks. Although she never hesitated to take the limelight during the tournament, she chose to let Lloyd speak on behalf of the team during the acceptance speech.
"I've dropped the F bomb at every stage of my performance for three days," Rapinoe told the mic. "So, I'm just going to spare you, thank you for receiving us."

The star winger was not the only one to opt for a blazer. Tobin Heath and Christen Press also opted for the look – and Heath even kept his sunglasses for more freshness. The award is only the icing on the cake for the team, which will celebrate this fall by playing a host of exhibition games across the country.
