Lace And Pastels Abound At WSF’s 34th Annual Salute To Women In Sports Gala

Last night in New York, female athletes rubbed elbows on the red carpet at the Women’s Sports Foundation’s (WSF) 34th Annual Salute to Women in Sports. Trading in their protective gear and sneakers for lace dresses and heels, all the ladies brought their A-game to celebrate their fellow athletes achievements throughout the year. The night’s top honor went to Olympic swimmer Missy Franklin, who walked away with the coveted 2013 Individual Sportswoman of the Year award. Check out all the red carpet looks here.
