We’re featuring one more retrospection of WTA players’ yearly outfits, especially compiled for our readers Nacho, Kristine and Michael who wanted to see all the outfits Reebok-clad Jelena Jankovic sported during 2008.
It’s interesting to have a look at what world No.1 Jankovic wore during 2008, as she’s known for loving fashion. Remember? Jelena hit the runway modeling a collection of one Serbian clothing line. She was even included in the designing of some items for the collection.
As you can see the very beginning of 2008 wasn’t really fashionable in Jelena’s case, but things got better as the year proceeded.
These following dresses all look nice, but I find them too simple and similar. Jelena’s personality asks for something less ordinary and more glittery.
Which style would you like Jelena to work in 2009?
If you asked me, I would love Jelena to completely express herself through fashion, I’m sure it would be a show of its own.
The Beijing Olympics dress is Jelena Jankovic’s first custom Reebok dress which she helped design. It was quite criticized in the blogosphere, although Jelena said she received a lot of compliments for it. I didn’t have a problem with the Olympics dress, although I admit the design that followed was way better.
My 2008 favorite is the US Open dress. The lemon yellow color makes the dress look fresh and gentle. It’s pleasing and relaxing to look at.
To end this year’s theme for the off-season of reviewing what women’s tennis players wore on court during the year we will feature Amelie Mauresmo, a wish of our reader Claire. (ABCNews, daylife, Hopman Cup, Jankovic’s official site,Tennis Served Fresh, zimbio, jamd, WTA Tour, Tennis Channel, hcfoo)
