As I mentioned earlier, I got a chance to check out some of the first round match between Iveta Benesova + Bethanie Mattek-Sands live and took some pictures during my visit to opening day of the US Open.
The American won their tennis battle but Bennie certainly won the fashion game between the two lady ballers. The Czech worked this smooth looking razor back Reebok dress in a beautifully rich and deep plum color with fluorescent green piping on the straps and down the back. I have to say it was pretty striking in person and really stood out amongst the other "fashion" of the day.
It's actually a bit reminiscent of the design concept behind Maria Sharapova's Nike day dress but I think this look would've been a better choice, especially the plum over the dusty-pink colorway, for the Russian even in the day.
In any case, great dress Reebok but too bad we won't get to see it anymore.
