FASHION FIX: Sharapova shines in yellow for Roland Garros

Maria Sharapova hit the dirt with a quickness today. 
The blonde bomber wasted no time in her match against Mirjana Lucic, brushing aside her Croatian foe 6-3, 6-0 in 56 minutes. Her serve, which is always the barometer of her game and her mind, held together pretty well. She only served three DF's and kept a 55% first serve for the match - not bad for a first rounder. Shrieka gets homegirl Caroline Garcia next.

The 3-time Grand Slammer also debuted her latest Nike look: The Maria Line 9 Knit Dress ($120) in lightbulb with lemon frost and bronze (read: lots o' shades of yellow) from the Maria Sharapova Collection.

The inspiration, as I posted last week, was based on Paris and the Eiffel Tower. Here's a great shot of the back from Shrieka's match:

Love it. Great fit, beautiful silhouette and smart use of tonal coloring, in this case yellow, that helped keep the detail from overwhelming the dress. It seems like Shrieka + Nike have been in good form, if you will, since Indian Wells/Miami. And, speaking of yellow, I've noticed a ton of it floating around Roland Garros this year and it's awesome. The hue plays nicely against the red clay and it screams SPRING. Ain't nothing wrong with that.

  1. I always like her dresses...I think they look so cute on her. Can't believe the French is starting already!!

  2. Last year I think they were trying some strange things - asymentrical, color blocking, tiering - all in the same dress! But they seemed to have found the right designs for her. They've been in a good groove since March Madness. It's been good.

  3. I've always been excited to see what Maria has to wear for the tournaments, especially for the Grand Slams. I did some research and I think I might have found a picture of her night dress for the U.S. Open. I am a bit skeptical seeing as though it's a bit early to be seeing the dress. What do you think?



  4. While it does seem early for an official release (even for renderings) they most certainly have the dresses designed and produced by now. And, it's in keeping with the silhouette she's been wearing of late. If this is her US Open dress this one is obviously for night matches. AND I LIKE.

    Great find Kim!
