party pics: china open serves up the ladies



The top crop of ladies vying for the China Open title this week — Svetlana Kuznetsova, Jelena Jankovic, Amelie Mauresmo (welcome back!), Elena Dementieva, Lindsay Davenport, and Martina Hingis — were all present at this promo event which had them clad in cheongsams (traditional Chinese dresses). All except for Lindsay, who was wearing her LBD. I wonder why?

This is the first off-court dress I’ve LOVED on Amelie. As usual, Jelena and Elena were looking good.

Best dressed award goes to Hingis, though. Maybe it’s the dress + the curly hair + devilish smile? Whatever she did, it worked!

Who do you think dressed best? Tell us!

  1. I wonder if they get to pick their own color. I do like Higis’ the best.

  2. I love love love Amelie in this dress! I agree with you that she finds it a bit difficult to pull off dresses in general, but this works really well for her. I think it’s the fact that it bares her shoulders but covers her neck, so she doesn’t look so much like a bodybuilder stuffed into a gown. The length also suits her (and all these tall, great-legged women) and the color and pattern are feminine without being too girly. A muscular woman just can’t pull frilly, frothy girly things off (sorry Serena, it’s true and you might as well get used to it!) So my vote is for Amelie. And I’m so happy she’s back. She’s one of my faves.

  3. I’m sorry but these ladies just can’t compare to the recent Emmys. To be honest they look kind of homely compared to the usual women we see on TV….. I guess women don’t look so good when they are stonger than their male couterparts…

  4. I agree that Amelie wins for the sheer fact that she rarely looks so good. Her hair looks great too
