Stephanie Gilmore's ESPY Awards Fashion Is Spot On (PHOTOS)

When controversy hits, sometimes fashion is the best medicine.

Luckily, Stephanie Gilmore has plenty of access to top designers now that she's joined Roxy's surf team. Even though she had a bit of a rocky start after her ad for the brand was likened to "softcore porn" earlier this month, it appears she's recovered swimmingly -- seriously, did you see how great she looked at last night's ESPY Awards?

The pro surfer took home the "Best Female Action Athlete" award wearing an orange and white Stella McCartney number from the Spring 2013 collection and a pair of white Manolo Blahnik strappy sandals. Her beachy waves and bright pink lipstick complemented the laid-back look perfectly. Plus, we give her extra points for attempting a dress that style star Emma Stone has worn before (and wearing it even better, if you ask us).

Check out Gilmore's oh-so-summery ensemble at last night's ESPY Awards and see below to get a sense of her actual surf style.
