fashion: sharapova’s pleated aussie open dress

I was hoping that Richard’s Court would give us a preview of Maria Sharapova‘s Aussie Open gear (since he did it for Serena and Roger), but he’s leaving this task to retailers. Shipments of Nike‘s Spring 2008 line are available for general consumption…

This classy and classic Flora dress has mesh pleating down the front and back and pleated ruffles on the skirt hem. We are totally in love with this thing. Are you? Tell us!

Buy: Nike Sharapova Australian Open Flora Dress (color: tweed) available for $110 at Midwest Sports.

See a European ad with Maria wearing the dress after the cut…

    Nick: For as much s**t as Maria gets for wearing weird things on the court (her Wimbledon swan dress, etc.), experimentation and innovation is the only way to keep from looking stale out there. And this is one of the designs that happened to work in her favor…

    By the looks of it, I compared the dress in the ad to the one that Dani was wearing, and there are some differences…I posted them on the forums on Masha’s website

    love the dress, colour, detailing…. except the white ruffle on the bottom – not sure why that was added as there was plenty of detailing already

    i don’t think masha will wear it after hantuchova did….. and why o why won’t they fix the armpits – has nike ever taken the time to MEASURE maria?

    anyway it seemed to suit daniela much better

    it bothers me so much that maria’s clothes often don’t fit

    She was wearing it in the Aussie Open 1st Round against Kostanic Tosic, and a good win too by the way… but she looked really good in it. I always thought that she wears a unique dress, but there are 2 other people that I know of that are wearing it… And Kaia Kanepi is wearing Sharapova’s US Open day dress in the Aussie Open… What’s with that?? They must like her sense of fashion :D

    This dress looks GREAT on Maria because, I am sure, it was made by Nike to fit her. I saw the stock piece in that awful khaki on another player not quite as svelte as Maria and it left much to be desired. Maria’s not Nike’s girl for nothin’.

    My spouse and i felt now peaceful Peter could do his web research because of the ideas he gained out of your web pages. It is now and again perplexing to just possibly be giving for free tips and tricks that many many people might have been trying to sell. And we consider we have you to give thanks to for this. These illustrations you’ve made, the straightforward blog navigation, the friendships your site make it easier to instill – it’s got most sensational, and it is making our son and us imagine that that matter is awesome, and that is quite pressing. Many thanks for the whole thing!
