fashion focus: serena switches to charm hoop earrings



Omg, can I tell you how much I love these earrings on Serena? She wore them for today’s 7-5, 6-4 win against Ukranian Tatiana Perebiynis in the second round of the Kremlin Cup.

The charms framed by the heart-shaped hoops look like crowns… Perhaps a tribute to Russia’s imperial history?

Browse: Lately I’ve been eyeing the charm hoops of Juicy Couture. I know the brand’s synonymous with “dirty soccer mom” in some circles, but eff it — this jewelry rocks! If you feel like getting a pair like Serena’s, they have a few variations of the crown-medallion-as-earring. Check it out.

The $100k Kharkov tourney from earlier this month hosted a fashion show for the ladies.

Because of the bright blue and yellow pastels (read: Ukrainian flag), some fans are speculating that these were designed for upcoming Fed Cup ties. How fun — we’re all about it!

Whodunit?: does anyone know who designed these outfits?

Our faves: Teplyakova in a spaghetti strap top, Perebiynis in an empire waist dress and in a tiered ruffle skirt, and Alona in assymetrical blue.

Bondarenkos wear the mishits: Alona in a purple dress which takes the tennis theme too far; Katerina wears a cutaway dress. That’s gonna make for some horrible tan lines.
