tennis for the style set: a breakdown



Style.com takes a look at summer sports through their glasses, breaking down how the fashionistas view the worlds of surfing, tennis, golf, riding, and diving.

For tennis, special shout-outs go to Anna Wintour, L’Wren Scott, Alexandre Herchcovitch, curator Kohle Yohannan, Tina Chai, Hilary Rhoda, Sophia Hesketh, and Poppy Delevingne. Thakoon Panichgul apparently plays on public courts (LES ones are his fave), and Tory Burch does doubles all summer in Southampton.

Of course they toast Roger as the sport’s official mascot (is this the beginning of Rafa backlash?); Brooklyn Decker gets groupie-of-the-moment (we would’ve given it to Bec Hewitt), and give love to NYC’s Mason’s Tennis Mart (on 56 E. 53rd St.).

Not least is anticipation of how the tail end of the 2009 U.S. Open will conflict with the opening of the Spring 2010 runway shows.

at the year-end party, maria shines in thakoon



You know Maria Sharapova wasn’t too bummed about being runner-up to Justine Henin at last week’s Year-End Championships in Madrid.

She sat out for almost two months to nurse her ailing shoulder, and in the meantime cleaned out the skeleton in her closet by auctionining off that cursed U.S. Open day dress. The result? A sexy librarian look from Nike and a kick-ass serve that got her a $500,000 check for second-place.

To celebrate after the long match (and a long year), Maria attended the tournament’s players’ party dressed in the metallic orange Thakoon frock and a pair of black t-strap platforms by Lanvin.

What do you think of the outfit? Tell us!
