Maria Sharapova Day Dress

Maria Sharapova Evening Dress

Shades of grey: The folks at Nike are keeping Maria Sharapova in very muted-colored dresses at this year’s U.S. Open. Her loosely fitted (i.e., casual) day dress is accented by a bright “solar red” while the more tight-fitting night dress — inspired by New York, of course — mixes up shiny and matte fabrics to evoke the colors of the concrete jungle at dusk. They slapped on “high voltage yellow” on the back straps of the night dress to give it some pop.
