My article US Open 2013 through the fashion lens: best and worst dressed was quite a hit and several readers suggested that I do Part 2, and you know I always listen to my readers, so let’s see notable fashion statements and brands that I didn’t get to include in the last week’s piece.
Germany’s Mona Barthel worked the brand new Abisko Collection of Denise Cronwall. You know that I am a huge fan of the Florida-based designer’s feminine style. The Abisko collection has some cute unusual features, such as a bow in the neckline of tanks and dresses and a cute scrunchie adorning the racer back.
Sloane Stephens is looking stylish in purple Under Armour dress, paired with bright orange shoes with purple laces and colorful headband. Definitely a fashion hit!
Kazakh world No.77 Galina Voskoboeva attracted all the right attention in her pastel yellow Peak dress. Love the discreet blue straps in the back, matching the thin blue waistline accent!
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
Samantha Stosur was wearing the ASICS Women’s Fall Racquet Dress, which retails at $67.99. The Japanese brand has a new WTA name in the team, as Kaia Kanepi switched from Nike.
Zheng Jie provided a nice promo for her pink Anta dress by drawing attention to herself during her victory over two-time US Open champion Venus Williams in the second round.
Alize Cornet has climbed high on the fashion ladder in her Lacoste Women’s Fall Pique Dress which is available at Tennis Warehouse for $125. The classic item has a collar, a white half-zip in the front and a keyhole opening on back and Cornet worked both the navy and red version of it.
Just like fellow Nike representative Li, Sabine Lisicki opted for the combination of red and grey, but in a slightly style and instead of a visor she accessorized with a headband.
Alexandra Dulgheru spiced up the US Open with her colorful K-Swiss geometric print, while Heather Watson brought solid blue with K-Swiss Women’s Fall Smash It Dress which features a V-neck, keyhole cutout in the back and pleated hem.
How do you like the apparel presented in this Part 2? My favorite is Sloane Stephens in Under Armor, because of the refreshing colors that perfectly suit the American’s complexion. The runner-up position would go to Galina Voskoboeva and her lovely, subtle yellow dress of the little-known brand Peak.
