LBD makes a (clay) court appearance

Maria Sharapova completed a career slam by winning the French Open 2012, in an LBD (aka Little Black Dress).

With a grey panel for some relief, Maria’s classic style statement was completely off for the European summer. Maybe she could take a leaf from her opponent Sara Errani’s fashion diary- wearing a more upbeat colour (purple mixed with lilac).

The Spanish Olympic outfits are as bad as their economy

The Spanish economy is down in the dumps, to put it mildly. That may be the reason they hired Russian fashion house BoscoSport to design their Olympics 2012 outfits for free. Take a look:

If the Spanish outfits are so bad, wonder what the Greek uniforms would be like. Hmmmm….

Euro Cup 2012 sees some serious fashion risks

I don’t think I’m the only one who thinks the diagonal stripe across the Russian football team’s uniform is confusing. What say?

Eeeks: Fashion disasters at US Open

Earlier this week, we promised you more fashion disasters from US Open 2010, and here they are.

Leading the pack can be none other than Venus Williams, whose outfits everyone loves to hate. Speaking Chic reported earlier this year that her Wimbledon outfit rode up a bit too much. And this tournament it seems to be doing the same, but this time she’s got flesh-coloured umm… undies. Also, she calls the little jewels on her dress the “fireworks”.

“This outfit was supposed to be about New York. It’s like bursts of fireworks.” – Venus Williams

Here’s a glimpse of her pink dress (she’s also got the same in black), with a view from the back.

Then we have Maria “Shrieky” Sharapova, who loves experimenting with her tennis outfits, and this time trying a bit too hard to get some kind of collar(?) into her tennis dress (below left). Meanwhile, Caroline Wozniacki’s gone too short (below right).

Among the men, the Bryan brothers are wearing very bright and colourful tees, best worn in college (below left). And Frenchman Gael Monfils is wearing wear-at-home shorts (below right).
