Maria Sharapova In J. Mendel – 2012 ESPY Awards

Maria Sharapova took home the ‘Best Tennis Player’ at the 2012 ESPY Awards yesterday evening, which was held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live.

The tennis star, who recently won the French Open, wore a gorgeous J. Mendel Resort 2013 gown.

I love everything about this heron-blue silk-chiffon sleeveless pleated gown with its daring yet tasteful cut-out details and a thigh-high side slit which complemented her athletic frame.

Lara Bohnic jewels which included cuff and studded earrings accessorized her look.

A sweeping updo and Jimmy Choo ‘Falcon’ metallic sandals provided the finishing touches.

Maria tends to go for really edgy or ultra-girlie looks, so I find this elegant gown really refreshing.

All too often I’m reminded that she is an athlete by what she wears, but not on this occasion.

For me, this is the best she has ever looked.

Maria Sharapova In Antonio Berardi – Pre-Wimbledon Party

Maria Sharapova celebrated the upcoming Wimbledon tournament at a party held at Kensington Roof Gardens in London on Thursday night.

The tennis star had fun on the red carpet, playing with the high-low hemline of her Antonio Berardi Fall 2012 dress.

As she tends to favour these feminine looks off the court, Maria looked excited to wear the nude chiffon dress with leather embroidery.

“I love being in London and the energy of this city,” Maria said. “That energy inspired me to explore Britain’s up-and-coming talent and to support designer Antonio Berardi, who was kind enough to make my dress.”

The world’s current No. 1 ranked tennis player accessorized the look with ruby-red satin Roger Vivier ‘Sport Chic’ heels, which complemented her earrings, and an Alexander McQueen clutch which complemented her dress.

As always at this event, the majority of her looks were designed by British brands.

Do you like the contrasting red heels, or should Maria have gone head-to-toe matchy matchy?

You can buy Maria’s Antonio Berardi dress from Net-A-Porter International.

Maria Sharapova In Oscar de la Renta – A Beautiful Rebels Press Dinner

Tag Heuer hosted ‘A Beautiful Rebels’ press dinner’ with tennis star Maria Sharapova in New York City on Saturday evening.

The blonde beauty wore an Oscar de la Renta Fall 2012 dress, seen just a few weeks ago during New York Fashion Week.

Her silver bead embroidered ivory silk faille dress with feather trim was paired with butterfly-accented Giuseppe Zannoti shoes and a Tag Heuer watch.

Maria seems to like dressing in prim, girlie looks lately.

Do you think this style works for her, or would you like to see her in work a different look?

Maria Sharapova In Alexander McQueen – 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Perhaps Maria Sharapova should stay off the red carpet and stick to the tennis courts.

The tennis pro attended the 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party in West Hollywood last night, mingling with Hollywood’s biggest stars.

It pains me to say this, but Maria was my least favourite of the night in Alexander McQueen.

This Spring 2012 short and frilly frock just looks misplaced on Maria’s muscular frame.

Someone much more petite and dainty is needed to pull off the micro-mini hemline and all that frou frou.

Alexander McQueen horn heel platforms, an Alexander McQueen bejeweled Swarovski crystal clutch with skull clasp accessorized her look, along with Dena Kemp earrings, a David Yurman square ring, and head piece by Jennifer Behr.

Would any of you give Maria a pass?

Maria Sharapova @ Fall 2012 New York Fashion Week

Maria Sharapova is another star who was well turned out in the front row during New York Fashion Week.

On Tuesday she was seated next to Anna Wintour at Vera Wang’s Fall 2012 presentation wearing a Carven peach top, Rag & Bone tweed skirt and a coat from Jason Wu’s Resort 2012 collection.

A Tag Heuer watch and Cole Haan black shoes accessorized her look.

On the same day, she also attended the Rodarte show.

She opted to wear a very simple purple fit-and-flare dress with nude sandals.

After her disappointing shoe choice at Marc Jacobs, she is much improved here.

The purprle dress is my favourite.

Front Row @ Marc Jacobs Fall 2012

Rose Byrne: The actress was the last to arrive for the Marc Jacobs presentation which took place during New York Fashion Week. The photogs managed to snap this picture before she was rushed to her front-row seat. She wore a gingham cropped-sleeve coat from the Spring 2012 collection with Mary Janes and a yellow fringed clutch from the same collection.

Dakota Fanning: It wasn’t a surprise to see the actress front row at the Marc Jacobs show earlier this week. She wore a shimmering Marc Jacobs Spring 2012 eyelet dress with a beaded tiered chiffon-accented hemline. A blue Marc Jacobs clutch with clear fringed details and Mary Janes completed her look.

Maria Sharapova: The tennis champ was the surprising attendee of the Marc Jacobs presentation. She wore an ice-blue tulle Marc Jacobs dress with velvet strips. The clutch and the shoes are so out of whack with the dress.
