Tennis Fashion at Roland Garros: Maria Sharapova French Open Nike 2011
Maria Sharapova's style for Roland Garros is sunny sophisticate. The look is feminine and elegant yet works nicely on a powerful body.
Sharapova is clearly having fun designing her line and in my humble opinion is getting better at it as every collection rolls out. Gone are the abundant fabrics, attached details and maiden-esq frills. Pretty must perform (and not get in the way) when it comes to tennis.
The yellow colors in this dress, lightbulb with lemon frost, can be a problem for some with paler complexions (wash out). The line and detail are really pretty though and if you've got tan or dark skin this will look stunning..
The Nike Maria Line 9 Dress as it's called has got a knit bodice decorated with stretch line taping and elegant stitching that is said to be inspired by old fashioned corsetry methods and the Eiffel Tower. It's $120 USD and has a built in bra. A diamond shaped cut out in back helps ventilation and unrestricted movement.
