Last night, the 2024 WNBA Draft capped off a historic season in women’s college basketball. With names like Caitlin Clark, Angel Reese and Cameron Brink dominating the sports news cycle and viewership skyrocketing, this last season seemed to mark a shift in women’s basketball—and women’s sports in general.

It only makes sense then, that the young stars on the court brought their best to the red carpet ahead of the main event. All eyes were on them, and each and every one delivered.

To celebrate their move to the league, the NCAA’s best and brightest basketball stars stepped out in some incredible designer styles. In addition to honoring their impressive achievements on the court, we wanted to take the chance to acknowledge their undeniable ability to dress. Below are just a handful of the glamorous looks from last night’s event.

Perhaps one of the bigger stories of the night was Clark stepping out in Prada. The move made her the first pro basketball player—male or female—dressed by the brand for the draft. She went No. 1 to the Indiana Fever.

Power suits are in, and Tennessee’s star forward just proved it. With a sleeveless top and its deep red hue, this one couldn’t have been better suited for the event. Jackson was drafted No. 4 to the Los Angeles Sparks.

For Edwards, the glamour was in the details. Her white dress was stunning, but relatively simple. The bedazzled basketball purse and sparkly wrap heels made for an eye-catching look. Edwards was selected at No. 6 to the Washington Mystics.
