Retrospection of Maria Kirilenko’s 2008 Stella McCartney outfits

$20 Off Select adidas SoleCourt and Ubersonic 3

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.

Check out our previously featured retrospections of Serena Williams’ and Maria Sharapova’s 2008 outfits.

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!

    I really like the Wimbledon and RG dresses, but I find it better in white. The yellow skirt is great! And what she wore at USO was good too, but I don’t like the last one (in white or black), it’s too strange for me lol! And of course the Auckland one is great!

    Thanks for your work !

    LOL well I dont think it’s a huge secret that my fellow Scottish tennis fan JimM is a big fan of Makiri. Jim has his own Makiri site.

    I like to tease him that she’s just a posseur lol, but I like that informal Roland Garros outfit, lovely in the light and shade.
