Ever the statuesque stunner, whether on red carpets or tennis courts, Maria Sharapova romped through Paris Fashion Week shows like the veteran she is. Elegance comes simply to the WTA Tour star, and she bounded from Stella McCartney to Chanel to Valentino shows over two days. In short, she got a ticket to ride, and she did care.
Sharapova spoke with the New York Times about her fashion and travel-style senses. She sat front row at that Stella show. (Eat your heart out, Caroline Wozniacki.) She dwarfed British Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton at said Stella rollout. And she then appeared front row again, rubbing elbows with Anna Wintour, no less, at the Chanel show.
Perhaps the sole thing Sharapova didn’t yet do as fashion is concerned is, well, start her own label. Serena Williams boasts the Signature Statement line that she hawks on cable TV and at New York Fashion Week the past two years. Sharapova has mentioned delving into style and design from her Sugarpova candy beginnings, but has yet to pull the trigger on a fashion self-brand. Bet she does exactly that after her WTA playing days are over in a few years.
