Tennis Fashion: US Open 2010 Maria Sharapova Day and Night
Maria Sharapova loves to dress it up for the court and her newest designs incorporate fashion trends hitting the streets as well as some of her own mind — this year a look to the past and nod to the future.
Sharapova has two dresses for the US Open, one for day (more casual) and one for night (dressy). Take a look…a New York City day IS tame compared to a night isn't it?
Sharapova's day dress comes in one color, retro (a blue/green color), rattan and anthracite and is a tad reminicent of something June Cleaver might have worn. I think it's the collar; remember those very elegant "house dresses?"
The Nike Maria Sharapova NYC Day Dress is of course modified to move and breathe with a big game and little touches, like buttons and piping add panache to an otherwise very retro style. I haven't tried it on but it looks comfortable and unclingy. A simple toss it on and go. All DriFit of course, $110.
Sharapova's night dress is another story. She looked fab in it at the Nike event — very New York and a bit futuristic. The night silhouette has luxe energy with tuxedo inspired lapels and couture design elements like a ruched skirt and seam detail at the bust line.
The Maria Sharapova NYC Night Dress sells for $150, a price that is justified by the amount of detail in this cocktails worthy tennis dress. Check out the inset pics for some of my favorite assets. The deep purple, called "ink," is regal in combination with the black. Really like this one.
