Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Maria Sharapova In Preen - 2013 Style Awards

Maria Sharapova joined Jessica Paré and Nicole Richie on the red carpet at the Lincoln Center in New York City for the 2013 Style Awards.

The tennis star, who was forced out of the US open due to a shoulder injury, was able to concentrate on her second love – fashion.

Working a clean, crisp, summery look to the fullest, she wore a silver-embellished white sleeveless top with a sequinned skirt featuring a wrap-style silhouette and solid back panel from Preen’s Spring 2013 collection.

Taupe Louboutin pumps wouldn’t have been my first choice. I wish she’d opted for something as light and delicate as her ensemble. I hear a thud when I come to her footwear.

Maria Sharapova In David Koma - 'Sugarpova Accessory Collection' Launch

Maria Sharapova celebrated the one-year anniversary of Sugarpova by launching the ‘Sugarpova Accessory Collection’ exclusively at Henri Bendel in New York City yesterday afternoon.

I’m not sure if it was a total coincidence but Maria wore a David Koma Fall 2013 dress, following the David Koma Fall 2012 dress she wore to the launch a year ago.

On this occasion she selected a blue mini dress with a flounced hem featuring leather panels which mimicked the grooves of a vinyl album. A sheer bodice is a fashion-forward choice for a Tuesday afternoon; however, I don’t think Maria is working it so confidently.

The shoes are a letdown and I wish the nude panel under her dress was a closer match to her skin tone.

On the plus side, her wavy tresses and pretty pink lip colour are perfection.

Maria Sharapova In J Mendel - 2013 ESPY Awards

With a few too many dark colours at this event, I was thankful for Maria Sharapova’s fresh look at the 2013 ESPY Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California yesterday evening, where she was up for Tennis Player of the Year.

The blonde star wore a J. Mendel Resort 2014 frock with a 50s retro feel, with metallic-silver accents within the pastel-green hues giving the look a modern feel.

The black detailing at the hem bothered me at first, but now I like how it adds an unexpected edge to the look, preventing it from feeling too twee.

Possibly with the black hem in mind, she opted for black Casadei pumps when silver sandals would’ve been my personal preference.

Beach waves, pink lips, and Irene Neuwirth jewelry completed her look.

Maria Sharapova In Valentino - Porsche Design And Vogue Re-Opening Event

Maria Sharapova attended the Porsche Design and Vogue re-opening event at Porsche Design Beverly Hills in Beverly Hills, California yesterday evening.

The tennis player wore a Valentino Fall 2013 long-sleeved black dress featuring a contrast collar and yoke, a sheer organza insert at the shoulders, contrast buttoned cuffs and an inverted pleat at the front.

As someone not a fan of such shapeless dresses, I oddly find myself very intrigued by this look.

The styling, which included a gold Ferragamo clutch and black Louboutin pumps, is too muted for my liking, but works perfectly well with the dress.

A low-slung ponytail and barely there makeup completed the look.

Does this get a thumbs up or down from you?

You can buy Maria’s Valentino dress from Luisa via Roma US or Luisa via Roma UK.

Maria Sharapova In Preen - WTA 40 Love Celebration

Maria Sharapova attended the WTA 40 Love Celebration held at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London on Sunday.

We are used to seeing the Russian tennis star wearing delicate dresses; however, on this occasion she selected a Spring 2013 ensemble by London-based designers Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi of Preen.

Her chic look consisted of an alligator-skin-patterned blouse with solid blue trims, paired with expertly tailored high-waisted wide-leg balloon trousers featuring a front pleat.

With her makeup and hair kept simple, she added red sky-scraper heels to ramp up her look.

Maria Sharapova In Chloé - 'Sugapova' Candy Collection Selfridges Launch

Prior to the pre-Wimbledon party, Maria Sharapova attended a photocall to launch her new range of candy, ‘Sugarpova’, at Selfridges in London.

The tennis star wore a Chloe Pre-Fall 2013 look, which is ironic considering how summery her look is.

She styled her light-blue sleeveless cowl-neck top and rose-pink skirt with a net overlay with sharply contrasting yellow Christian Louboutin pumps.

I love both colour combinations, but if I was given the choice I would opt for the look book colours with Maria’s shoes.

Which look do you prefer?
