TSF was on hand at tonight’s unveiling of Maria Sharapova‘s 2007 U.S. Open dress. The event, held at the Top of the Rock, opened with an exhibit of Maria’s past fashion hits, including her 2004 Wimbledon whites (with that awesome slit), her 2006 U.S. Open dress (the Breakfast at Tiffany’s ensemble), and her pink tutu get-up from the 2006 French Open.

The dresses: Maria then came out and introduced her two Nike looks for this year’s Open, both “inspired by New York”. The day dress has an abstracted image of the City’s skyline in black and white to create a negative-print effect. The night dress, in red (coral, really), features the same skyline pattern but illustrated with 600 Swarovski crystals. (It’s the first red dress Maria’s worn as a pro.)

A techie innovation: There’s NO SEWING on the dress at all; all the pieces of Dri-fit fabric are bonded together for minimal abrasion and maximum comfort.

Shoes: She’ll wear white Nike sneakers with red soles to match the red of the dress. Black tongues on the shoes will complement her day outfit.

So, what do you think of the dress? Tell us!

Let’s not forget the purse: Masha will walk onto the courts at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center carrying her belongings in a six-racquet bag from her eponymous limited edition collection by Prince. The bag’s exterior is made with patent leather and detailed with fuschia-colored velour.

The Tour bag (which holds six racquets) will retail at $70.00, while the three-racquet bag will go for $50.00. Both will go on sale on November 1. (via OTB)

  3. I couldn’t pay attention to all the details of her US Open outfits, because of that annoying look on her face

  4. butter, I love you.

  5. ahahahaha….ROFL!

  6. SHARAPOVA WEARS THE MOST ELEGANT OF ANYONE ON THE TENNIS TOUR. IN THE 1970′S WE HAD THE LOOK THAT SHE SO BEAUTIFULLY WEARS. CHRIS EVERT HAD A LINE OF DRESSES WE BOUGHT AND ALSO DRESSES WITH SWEATERS TO MATCH. SOME WERE KNIT WITH SWEATERS TO MATCH. I WOULD SAY SHARAPOVA IS THE BEST DRESSED OF ALL THE PLAYERS AND IT MAKES THE LADIES AND MEN ENJOY THE PLAYER MORE WHEN THEY ARE A 10 FROM I-10. MEN SHOULD NEVER WEAR SLEEVELESS SHIRTS WHICH SHOW THEIR UNDERARM NOT ATTRACTIVE AT ALL. BAD SELECTION IS A MAN WITHOUT SLEEVES…LOOK AT FEDERER AND HIS HANDSOME JACKETS!!!!!!

  7. I WOULD LIKE A BAG THAT SHARAPOVA HAD ON HER MATCH AUG. 28 TONIGHT AND THE JACKET AS WELL. THE MOST ELEGANT OF ANYONE EVER. HER DRESS ARE A DELIGHTFUL CHANGE IN THE WAY OTHERS DRESS. LAST YEAR AND EVERY YEAR AT THE US OPEN, SHARAPOVA OUT CLASSED EVERYONE. A BEAUTIFUL LADY WITH A 10 ON HER DRESS CODE. THE ENTIRE ATTIRE SHE HAD, I WOULD LIKE A DUPLICATE!!!!!
