Caroline Wozniacki Australian Open 2011 Tennis Fashion
adidas by Stella McCartney is outfitting Caroline Wozniacki once again and good news (a couple of quick vuvuzela blasts) our Dane will have something different to wear for every major tournament in 2011. No more same-old same-old for Miss #1.
First look we will see is the sporty Ballerina Dress, pictured left, worn over a set of designed-to-be-seen, seamless underwear (see inset pic ). The dress looks to the traditional ballet costume for inspiration. No tutu thankfully, just a layered pleated skirt in white. The infrared underwear peeking through thoroughly modernizes the look.
This dress, much to my chagrin, will not be available in the US. It is destined for the European market only. The undies are included in that news.
What the US market will see are the other pieces in Stella's Spring/Summer 2011 collection for tennis: a ruffle tennis tank in blueprint (inset left), $115; a pleated skirt in white or blueprint, $85; tank in infrared or white, $75; and big grey tennis tennis bag, $225 (below pic).
Wozniacki's footwear with dash of infrared on white, will also be available internationally. Called the eileithyia tennis sneaker, a pair will run you $130.
