Iowa women’s basketball star Caitlin Clark stepped out for the WNBA Draft wearing a special ensemble.

Clark was wearing Prada from head to toe – becoming the first WNBA or NBA player to be dressed by the fashion house for the draft.

She was seen wearing a silvery top with an off-white skirt and a large jacket over the top of it.

Clark accessorized the outfit with black shoes and a black bag as well as silver bracelets.

Topping it all off was a pair of orange colored sunglasses – possibly an homage to the colors of the WNBA logo.

Earlier in the day, Clark was one of many WNBA Draft hopefuls that were pictured atop the Empire State Building.

The night of the draft, Clark was selected first overall by the Fever in a highly anticipated selection.

It drew tens of thousands of people to Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis to watch the team draft Clark.

Clark, who led Iowa to consecutive national title game appearances, will stay in the Midwest and will hope to help turn around a struggling Indiana franchise that hasn’t been in the playoffs since 2016.

Now, one of the greatest to ever grace a college basketball court is off to the pro ranks where she’ll team up with last year’s No. 1 overall pick – Aliyah Boston.

Clark left Iowa owning the record for the most points ever scored by a man or a woman in college basketball history.

But she was never able to taste the success of a championship in college – falling to LSU in the 2023 title game and South Carolina in the 2024 title game.

Eventually, Clark was selected first overall by the Indiana Fever in this year's draft

Clark celebrated at the draft in Brooklyn and walked up to the stage where she was greeted by WNBA commissioner Cathy Engelbert with a hug and a Fever jersey.

After Clark was taken first overall, picks two and three were Stanford’s Cameron Brink to the Los Angeles Sparks and Kamilla Cardoso of South Carolina to the Chicago Sky. Following the top three, Tennessee’s Rickea Jackson was taken fourth overall by the Sparks again and Jacy Sheldon of Ohio State was taken fifth overall by the Dallas Wings.

Angel Reese, the star from LSU known as the ‘Bayou Barbie’, was selected seventh overall and was picked by the Chicago Sky.

According to Spotrac, Clark’s rookie contract will be worth $338,056 paid out over the course of four years – with a fourth-year option.
