When it comes to fashion this US Open has been nothing but the most delicious treat, from colorful and lively styles to fashion pits, the final Grand Slam of the season has been everything but boring! Let's see who rose to the challenge in the US Open fashion arena and whose appearance made the spectators look away.
Venus Williams refreshed the tournament with a floral EleVen dress and matching long purple braids, but that was not all. A close observer could notice long purple nails, one of them even adorned with a glittery bow and a huge ring.
Thumbs up for Venus' daring look! This time she pushed the limits, but absolutely in the right direction and on the best occasion, the fashionable and colorful NYC and US Open. The dress retails at EleVen's official website for $104.
Venus got eliminated in the second round by Zheng Jie, but her lively style will surely resonate for the full two weeks of the Open and stay in our minds for the long time to come. However, not all the players have grabbed the fashion hit label. Let's see who ended up in the fashion miss category.
COMPARE US OPEN FASHION FROM PAST YEARS:
- 2012 – the celebration of the color of yellow and legendary Kim Clijsters
- 2011 – Bethanie Mattek Sands brought patriotism, Venus Williams shocked with lace
- 2010 – a little bit of everything
Eugenie Bouchard was wearing the Nike Women's Autumn Premier Maria Print dress and as much of a style icon Maria Sharapova is, the person behind this design who would have been its main representative had she not withdrawn from the tournament, this dress is a mess. I find the print lacking in inspiration, as if they didn't know what to do to make a statement and came up with the clumsy ink print.
Svetlana Kuznetsova joins the wagon of tacky prints in her Qiaodan piece. The excessive color-blocking, openings and details are making Caroline Wozniacki's Adidas by Stella McCartney Fall Dress too busy for my taste and the sweat marks are not improving the impression at all. There's too much going on with this piece, in every aspect and from every perspective.

However, Adidas didn't disappoint with all their pieces. The peach ensembles worn by Maria Kirilenko and Andrea Petkovic are much more pleasant for the eyes.
The Adidas style worn by numerous players such as Ana Ivanovic, Flavia Pennetta, Angelique Kerber, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Sorana Cirstea and Daniela Hantuchova is a perfect choice for the US Open, if you don't want to be too bold like Venus Williams, but still wish to take risks and push the edge. A perfect blend of energetic colors and extraordinary design. This look is available in a red dress and a combination of a tank and skort.
