The ESPY Awards, aka the biggest night of the year for sports stars to show off what they look like out of their uniforms (hello, hotties!), took place last night and Maria Sharapova looked a-ma-zing. The 27-year-old tennis superstar rocked an Antonio Berardi stretch jersey cocktail dress with lace sleeve detailing to present at the event—and take home the Best Female Tennis Player of the Year award, thankyouverymuch. She accessorized with Walter Steiger shoes, a Bottega Veneta clutch, and jewelry by Irene Neuwirth and Jennifer Fisher. Love that look? So do we! Which is why she snapped pics of her getting-ready process to give us all the exclusive deets.

2:06 p.m. “Before applying makeup, I use my everyday Supergoop! City Serum ($ 42; sephora.com) to create a good base. Especially for the ESPY Awards—the sun is really strong on the red carpet so a moisturizer with sunscreen is really important. What a glam spread!”
2:16 p.m. “I had so many accessory choices to wear tonight.”
2:17 p.m. “At the ESPY Awards it’s all about the bling!”
2:45 p.m. “I had a couple of last minute tailoring needs! The cameras pick up on everything, so we needed to make sure no detail was left undone.”
3:10 p.m. “We kept my makeup simple other than the bold, dramatic eye.”
5:26 p.m. “A little last minute lipstick application and a quick hair spritz was necessary before doing a live segment on ESPN. The heat can make your hair so flat!”
6:30 p.m. “Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. and I rehearsed backstage before presenting together. We joked all the way to the mic!”
6:50 p.m. “Taking one last snap before heading home!”
