Herewith, we dispense with the notion only artists and fashionistas get red-carpet coverage here, and extend the judgmental privilege/pain to athletes. Because, you know, they need more attention.

Last night’s NFL draft brought out some serious fashion decisions. Take a look above and declare your winner.

Us? We’ve got to go with Danny Shelton for both daring and tradition. He wore a traditional Samoan lava-lava (like a sarong or skirt, worn to important events), along with coordinating vest and lei, to honor his heritage and a brother who died four years ago.

And allow us to help those of you who aren’t up on fashion details to impress your friends who are: TMZ says those Dante Fowler Jr. shoes are by Louboutin. Say it after us: loo-boo-tan. (Try not to hit the “n” too hard: It rhymes with coq au vin. And if you’re not up on that, just trust us.)
