Red Carpet Fashion Awards

It was a very busy day for Maria Sharapova in New York City yesterday.

Following her Sugarpova launch at Henri Bendel, she headed over to Haven Rooftop at the Sanctuary Hotel to celebrate being the cover star for Hamptons Magazine.

Opting for a low bun with face-framing tendrils, the tennis star showcased her off-court style wearing a Valentino Fall 2012 dress.

The red long-sleeve laser-cut leather dress was styled with glitter pointy pumps, a Tag Heuer timepiece, diamond-encrusted earrings and a dazzling cocktail ring.

It might not be as summery as the previous outfit, but I think she aced this look.

Maria Sharapova is turning her hand to the candy business, launching her Sugarpova brand earlier today at Henri Bendel in New York City.

The Sugarpova brand features twelve types of sweets which is said to reflects the fun, fashionable and sweet side of the tennis star, who not only named brand, but she also invested her own money into the project.

Unlike the poster for the brand, Maria opted for a less sugary approach to the launch today wearing a David Koma Fall 2012 dress.

Her sparkling silver glitter collar dress with a silver-and-blue sequined chain link-print was styled with blue Sergio Rossi suede pumps and Henri Bendel jewels.

I’m glad the collar is less ridge off the runway.

A purposely messy bun and a dark pink lip colour completed her look.

It’s interesting how Maria tends to favour London-based designers.

Had I lost 6-0, 6-1 in the Olympic Tennis Women’s Final to Serena Williams, I would’ve been at home licking my wounds.

Maria Sharapova was all smiles as she celebrated her silver medal win at London’s Zuma restaurant on Saturday with celebrity BFF Chelsea Handler – this now explains why ‘Chelsea Lately’ was so dire last week.

The Russian tennis star wore a cute mix of separates which was pulled together with some neutral accessories to allow the main focus of this look to be her Lisa Ho Hibiscus print blazer from the Spring 2012 collection.

For Spring and Resort we saw plenty of designers like Robert Cavalli, Mary Katrantzou, Altuzarra and Celine offer up botanical blazers.

The High Street was quick to catch on with Topshop, Zara, Dorothy Perkins and River Island also producing their own versions to keep up with the trend.

Here’s how to recreate Maria’s silver medal celebratory look.

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 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?
