On Friday, ESPN the Magazine released its 2011 “Body Issue,” where some of the hottest sports stars and celebrities bare all. To celebrate the release of the issue, ESPN hosted a red carpet party for the celebs who appeared in the issue, including, Hope Solo, Jose Reyes, Suzy Hotrod, Louie Vito and many others. Business Insider was there on the red carpet to check it out.

It was quite a scene.

Staff worked with the guests to explain where they should go and who would be interviewing them.
