We’re continuing our retrospections of the 2008 tennis outfits. To keep the promise to our readers Sara and George, our latest feature is Maria Kirilenko, the beautiful Russian who is sporting equally-beautiful adidas by Stella McCartney designs.
This first dress world No.29 Maria Kirilenko wore in Auckland in January, but it’s the last year’s dress. The following three outfits may look similar at first glance, but the shirts are different, and I like all of them. Maria Kirilenko wore those combinations in many 2008 tournaments.
My favorite dress is definitely the black Zurich Open one, but I wouldn’t mind wearing any of the others as well. Hm, ok, the one from the Korea Open looks too much like from a fairy tale, but I still find it cute. Which of these Stella McCartney outfits do you like best?
This year Kirilenko won three singles titles: Estoril, Barcelona and Seoul. Unfortunately, we didn’t get much chance to enjoy Kirilenko’s beautiful dresses because she was losing quite early into tournaments in 2008. She fell in the first or second round 16 times this year.
Stay tuned! There are more retrospections to come. We’re planning Venus Williams, Ana Ivanovic, Jelena Jankovic, Daniela Hantuchova, and Amelie Mauresmo.
UPDATE: We created this overview of Maria Kirilenko’s on-court fashion in video too. Take a look!
