WNBA players have dazzled all season long with their wardrobe combinations, so it’s no surprise the exceptional attire continued at the league’s orange carpet event during All-Star Weekend.

The stars of “The W” took center stage in Chicago on Friday as a number of players wore eye-catching apparel. There were so many great looks that it isn’t fair to pick one as the best of the night. But a few players did garner attention for their outfit choices.

The Seattle Storm’s Sue Bird showed off on the runway with an ensemble featuring a blazer and dope sneakers, while Dallas Wings star Arike Ogunbowale kept things silky smooth with her attire.

Here’s a look at those fits and more from Friday’s festivities on the orange carpet:

Isabelle Harrison, Dallas Wings

Harrison arrived in a Jordan and Kim Shui collaboration. A necklace featuring the Jumpman logo accompanied her look, which was also accessorized with black shades and hoop earrings.
