Ciara, Russell Wilson, Draya and Orlando Scandrick brought #BlackLove on the red carpet at the 2018 ESPY Awards. "Level up" with the couples, plus tons others who hit the carpet inside...
Fresh from releasing her new dance track "Level Up," Ciara joined her NFL husband Russell Wilson on the red carpet at the 2018 ESPY Awards at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. to honor the top athletes in their sport.
CiCi stunned in a yellow high-slit TONI MATICEVSKI gown that hugged her curves paired with sparkly Christian Louboutin sandals. The sexy dress with an exaggerated shoulder showed off her killer legs that we're jealous of. Chick is FIT and FAB.
Meanwhile, the Seahaws quarterback kept it dapper in all black with a navy blue blazer. He rolled the sleeves up on the blazer to give it some edge and paired his look with his own shoes, Nike Dangeruss Wilson 1.
Russ stays giving her that look. Y'all know the one...
On the carpet, Russ praised Ciara for getting back to her music and CiCi explained why she chose to release "Level Up." The married couple, who recently celebrated their 2nd year anniversary, also gushed about their baby girl Sienna Wilson.

The married couple, who recently celebrated their 2nd year anniversary, also gushed about their baby girl Sienne Wilson. As you can see, these two like playing up on their fashions. Orlando rocked a floral blue and white outfit while Draya kept it simple in a purple silk Nili Lotan dress accessorized with gold trimmed glasses.
Draya and Orlando got engaged in June 2015. We can't until they make it down the aisle.
Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman debuted Virigl Abloh's first Louis Vuitton designs on the carpet. And it was a good look. The Marshall actor hit the carpet in an all white ensemble from Virgil Abloh’s inaugural spring 2019 collection for Louis Vuitton. As you know, Virgil made history as the first black menswear artistic director for the French luxury brand.
No, New York Giants baller Odell Beckham Jr. is not wearing leggings. He just upped his tattoo game apparently. Sheesh.
They don't call him Swaggy P for nothing! Golden State Warriors champion Nick Young served up an interesting look in a printed top and metallic crop pants designed by Prada. Are we feelin' it?
Retired boxer Laila Ali and her hubby/former NFL wide receiver Curtis Conway were also on their coupledom steez.
Can't go wrong with an LBD.
Speaking of boxers, legend Sugar Ray Leonard was in the mix. In 1997, Sugar Ray retired from boxing for good, finishing his pro boxing career with a 36-3-1 record and 25 knockouts. Later that year, he was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame.
"Grown-ish"/Superfly actor Trevor Jackson made his way to the carpet. He just recently released a new track titled "Right Now." Yep, he's cute and can sing.
Former NFL star Terrell Owens is making headlines after he decided to boycott the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Apparently since he wasn't voted on in the first ballot, he's going to have his own ceremony at UT Chattanooga rather than in Ohio with the rest of his class. Lordt.
Twin battle! Who rocked it better? Shaquem Griffin or Shaquill Griffin ?
NFL baller Chris Johnson was on daddy duty with his cute kiddies.
Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad looked beautiful as she made her way down the carpet.
Hmmm...this outfit. NBA player JaVale McGee made sure folks saw him when he rolled up to the awards ceremony.
WNBA star Candace Parker served up side abs in a purple cutout dress.
Tennis superstar Sloane Stephens kept it red hot on the carpet before copping the Female Tennis Player Of The Year!
ESPN anchor Sage Steele struck a pose before heading inside.
U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Israel Del Toro Jr., who received the Pat Tillman Award for Service at the ESPYS last year, hit the carpet with a guest.
Meanwhile, Shiggy, who helped Drake's "In My Feelings" reach No. 1 on the charts with his viral craze, turned up on the red carpet:
The Wilsons hit the stage to present before taking their seats next to Chadwick:
Odell and T.O. were also tapped to present.
And this happened:

Shiggy hilariously kicks Russell Wilson out of photo with Ciara. Peep it above.
“To all the survivors out there, don't let anyone rewrite your story. Your truth does matter. You matter. And you are not alone.”

100+ women victimized by Larry Nassar (the gymnastics pedophile doctor) walked out on stage and received the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage. Peep their powerful stand against sexual assault above.
While there were several after parties after the show, Laila Ali decided to do something better.
She got in the kitchen to fix her man something to eat after the show:
