FASHION FIX: Nike pulls a Sydney switch-a-roo, dresses Hantuchova in Sharapova dress


WTF? Okay, so everything we saw online and heard from sources told us this dress, named the Nike Sharapova Australian Open Flora dress, was going to be worn by Maria "Shriek"apova during the night matches at next week's Aussie Open. So why is the slender Slovak Daniela Hantuchova working it at this week's Medibank International in Sydney? "We've been duped!" was our first thought. But why would Dani want to wear a dress named after Maria? Or is this more marketing genius from the Nike brand, who has been misfiring of late with the men's tennis gear?

With regards to the actual dress, we're not so impressed with it now. We still like the idea of the design, but the color is drab and leaves some pretty eye-catching sweat marks. Not the kind of impression a tennis fashionista wants to make at the first Grand Slam of the year.
