Caitlyn Jenner brought the 2015 ESPY Awards crowd to their feet for a standing ovation after a heartfelt and emotional acceptance speech upon receiving the Arthur Ashe Courage Award last night. The sporting crowd of athletes listened intently to Jenner as she delivered an inspiring, fluent and passionate talk, speaking of her experiences in sport and beyond. She ended with a tearful tribute to her family and kids, who were all in attendance to show their support: 

"You guys have given so much back to me, you've given me so much support, I am so so grateful to have all of you in my life" mustered Jenner, choking back the tears. 

With supermodel, Kendall, in the family and the fashion and glamour know-how of Kylie, Kim, Kourtney and Khloe, Caitlyn made an elegant choice for her first red carpet event, opting for an hourglass silhouette white ruched Versace gown, and classic hair and make-up, giving an old-Hollywood vibe to her style. 

Kim Kardashian later shared a behind the scenes family picture of the Jenner/Kardashian kids in a family photo. Jenner's son's looked dapper in lounge suits, whilst Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and Kendall all opted for black gowns, with Kylie going for gold in a gilded high-neck, long sleeved gown. Perhaps a nod to the Olympic gold medal in the family? 

Other stars who attended the awards included Britney Spears, Ben Affleck, LeBron James and Joel McHale. Discover more from the evening via our gallery below...
