More on clothes being optional in looking good, Caro also showed off her great bod when she modeled her new underwear line. Weeeell, atleast this was different from her off-court staple, Herve Leger, which I’m sure she wore on her way to the shoot.
Everybody knows that Roger always looks great in a suit (see Suiterer link above) so seeing him walk around in these Kanye West-designed Air Yeezy IIs (with some non-blue jeans!) was a nice surprise. You gained some extra cool points with me on that one, Mr. RF.
Masha’s the best dressed female athlete 90% of the time. This is Exhibit A of that other 10%. I gotta give her props for keeping it together the entire night because that Alexander McQueen was begging for a malfunction.
Vika looked great in this little ensemble she wore for her official Australian Open trophy pictures. She looked fresh and young and the blue/green combo worked well with that new, large, shiny accessory.
The amount of buzz this wig generated was ridiculous. I wish the actual photoshoot it was used for was talked about as much because it’s a great spread. There was some really bold styling and we’ve never seen Masha in anything like it before. (Menswear on a woman? Where do I sign up?)
Serena’s the first tennis player to ever grace the cover of US Vogue. She often talks about her love for fashion so I can only imagine how excited she was to be on the cover of the biggest fashion magazine in the world. This is only the second time US Vogue has featured athletes on the cover. I may have fist pumped for Serena when this came out.
Being on the cover of Vogue is pretty hard to top but Roger, style maestro of the entire tennis world, can do it. How? By being thrown a birthday soiree by US Vogue’s editor-in-chief and tennis fan, Anna Wintour, herself. Some of the guests were the who’s who of the fashion world—Diane von Furstenberg, Oscar de la Renta, Vera Wang and David Lauren.
Was there ever a doubt that Roger would be at the top of this list? I think not. I’m sure I missed a look or 10 here and there. Feel free to refresh my memory.
Maria Sharapova did the West Coast launch of her candy line, Sugarpova, last night at the It’Sugar store in Universal City. She looked great on the pink carpet and was very excited to talk about this new venture. Masha signed hundreds of bags of candy and took photos with fans and sweet tooth-ers.
Yup, that’s your former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki trying to explore other talents. Whose idea was this? When someone says they like to sing karaoke for fun, it does not mean you put them in a recording booth.
This song, Oxygen, was recorded to benefit the Danish and Polish Paralympic teams. That’s nice but I’m, um, not exactly sure how. (Yes, I’m a horrible human being.)
I have a few favorite Maria Sharapova shoots that haven’t really been challenged in a while; GQ Spain with Russell James in ’08, Women’s Health with Ben Watts in ’09, C Magazine with Brian Bowen Smith in ’09 and Cole Haan’s The Inspired Life with Todd Selby in ’10. But this one from The Gentlewoman #5 S/S 2012 issue shot right up the very top of my list. I mean, look at it!
I can’t make out everything that’s written on the article (and it’s cut short) but here’s some copy that I thought was nice to know.
We meet at a Country Club in Manhattan Beach, southern California, a short distance from one of Maria’s two US homes (the other is in Florida). Despite being just a half hour from Hollywood and it’s entrenched star system, and despite her status as one of the world’s most famous young women, she drives to the location alone. There’s no entourage, no assistant, and no pushy army of Evian-toting publicists following in her wake. Maria takes care of her own business.
This spread was shot by Zoe Ghertner and done in anticipation of Wimbledon later this year. I think they captured just the perfect amount of that Championships feeling without any of that (tired) wooden racquet prop.
On a personal note, I need to get back behind the camera again. I’ve been so lazy this year but after seeing this, I’m ready to grind again. #inspired
