PLAYERS: Maria Sharapova
Maria Sharapova is among the female tennis players who have expanded into the fashion world. She’s always dressed for success, both on the court and off. Sharapova collaborates with her clothing sponsor, Nike, when it comes to her competitive gear. She’s become a front row fixture at Fashion Week shows and incorporates what she sees on the runways into her Nike designs. Intricate details, flattering silhouettes, neon colors and trends like colorblocking and ruffles add an element of high-fashion to her apparel, without compromising on function. Her on-court ensembles are accessorized with Tiffany & Co. earrings and Tag Heuer wristwatches. Sharapova’s winning style translates off-the-court as well. She has appeared on the cover countless fashion magazines, she has teamed up with Cole Haan to develop shoes and accessories, and she’s been spotted wearing designs from luxury fashion houses like Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney. Sharapova recently discussed her style game with Vogue Australia. She spoke with the magazine about choosing her outfits on and off-court, fashion tips for taller women and working with Tag Heuer. Below are a few excerpts, For the full piece, read on here. How do you choose an outfit for a big event, both on and off court? Maria Sharapova: Off court, it usually depends on the event. I’ve had a few Sugarpova launches in the last few months so a lot of the things I’ve worn have been quite colourful and fun to go with the personality of the candy. For an event during the evening, I would go towards something like Alexander McQueen. I love working with Sarah Burton. I think she’s incredible. It’s been really amazing to see her creations come alive. Overall, I usually try to go for something more feminine and elegant. You’ve also delved into accessory design with Tag Heuer. In your opinion, what makes the perfect accessory? MS: The perfect accessory is one that will take you through the day and into the evening. My lifestyle involves a lot of travelling, so usually I only take one watch with me. Most of the time, it’s actually a men’s watch. It’s such a statement piece, but I can wear it in the day and at night, and because I’m quite tall I feel like I can pull off a bigger watch.   (photo via People StyleWatch)
