fashion focus: monfils in vogue



The October issue of Vogue has a French-themed spread of beautiful gowns by Parisian couture houses Chanel, Christian Lacroix and, Christian Dior; and shot by Arthur Elgort on location in the City of Lights.

While the women’s clothes took center stage (this is Vogue, after all), we were disappointed that they left French tennis star Gael Monfils as prop — dressed simply in Nike whites. Were they painted into this drab clothing corner by contractual obligations to his apparel sponsor? Le sigh; our loss, since we know that he can look pretty good all made up for the camera.

Flip: You can see the entire spread here.

This week: Monfils is still gunning for this week’s Rakuten Japan Open in Tokyo. He took out Marsel Ilhan in the first round, faces Chiudinelli in the second, and will likely run into Stan Wawrinka in the quarters. Draw here (pdf).

Janko in the June/July Men’s Vogue



Greetings from a rainy New York!

By the way, the latest issue of MV has a spread of Janko Tipsarevic hanging out in the Miami. I’ll scan when I get back to L.A. — I’m sure you’ll all manage in the meantime…

venus in vogue



venus-vogue-2007.jpg

Venus Williams gets more buzz for her EleVen fashion line by getting into Vogue‘s list of the 10 Best-Dressed in 2007.

The other nine ladies inlcuded by the tennis-friendly fashion bible are actress Kate Bosworth, stylist Kathryn Neale, model Astrid Munoz, Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman, interior designer Kelly Wearstler, art dealer Amy Greenspon, stylist Caroline Sieber, Hillary Clinton staffer Huma Abedin, and model Agyness Deyn. The list appears in the January issue (with cover girl Kate Hudson).

(Maria Sharapova has also been featured in a Best-Dressed list, but only in the weekly version that appears on the magazine’s website. Not good enough for print, I guess?)

Paul Smith hits the slopes: UK designer Paul Smith has ventured into the sports world yet again (remember the soccer balls and cycling jerseys?), but alas he missed tennis yet again. This time, he’s partnered with Burton to come up with some stylish snow-friendly outerwear. (UrbanDaddy LA)

And speaking of soccer…: Nike flexes its world dominance muscle yet again with a takeover of the soccer-focused Umbro (via DTL)

wallets

Recycling: WATR dug up this cool wallet made from an old racquet cover.

Painted clothes: In the spirit of Mystique and Demi Moore, the members of Sisterhood — a rowing team based in the UK — have posed for a fundraising calendar as various athletes. The twist: their kits are painted directly on their naked bodies. A clothed Jamie Murray posed in one of the photos. (andymurray.com)

djokovic - table tennis - stilettos

Stilettos and ping pong: Of course it would be Novak Djokovic who’d be hardcore playing ping pong at the Madrid Masters (look at that extension!). And of course he’d be the one playing against a girl wearing stilettos. (photo by andymurray.com)

Andy Murray’s flickr page: By the way, the folks behind Andy‘s website are embracing Flickr and uploading vids onto YouTube. Here’s a pic of him right after a haircut that raised money for charity.

Masha still competes: But not on the court. Vogue puts Maria Sharapova in the running for 2007′s best-dressed. Other nominees include Sienna Miller, Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett, Chloe Sevigny, SJP, Gwyneth, some supermodels, and a smattering of socialites.

… while Roger makes another list: The World No. 1 ends up No. 4 in Askmen.com’s Top 49 Men of 2007. (Alas, there are no other tennis players on the list; AndyRoddick’s lost his mojo for good.) Like how we dreamed it, David Beckham is on top. (via DTL)

Why we love Karl: NYT‘s Stephen Holden writes up the new documentary on Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld. The best quotes from the flick: “I love change; I’m attached to nothing”; “When I took on Chanel, it was a sleeping beauty — not even a beautiful one; she snored”; “Success nullifies; you have to do it again, and better.”
