The ESPYs always bring out the world's best athletes as well as plenty other A-listers, but this year's awards was particularly special. Caitlyn Jenner, who recently came out as transgendered, received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award, and had the audience in tears with her emotional speech. Watch her powerful acceptance speech and check out her amazing look, as well as six other stunning red carpet moments.

Caitlyn Jenner looked lovely in a curve-hugging Versace gown, but her beautiful words are what really stole the show: "I know i'm clear with my responsibility going forward, to tell my story the right way for me, to keep learning, to do whatever I can to reshape the landscape of the way trans issues are viewed, how trans people are treated, and then more broadly, to promote a very simple idea: accepting people for who they are. Join me in making this one of your issues as well."
