This year we launched our well-known tennis fashion retrospections with Fila and Kim Clijsters, even though I first started working on the review of world No.1 Caroline Wozniacki’s outfits. The thing is that I was blinded by Wozniacki’s beige, light gray and white so much that I couldn’t tell the difference among all the outfits, so I switched to Clijsters before finding the patience to look through all the similar designs adidas by Stella McCartney had in store for 2010.
Regular readers of this blog know that I am a huge fan of Stella McCartney and her work, including the colors she chooses for tennis clothes. This year, however, it was too much of similar colors, you have to really pay attention to detail to differentiate one dress from another.
The breath of fresh air arrived only at the end of the season, with the innovatively-designed black dress accompanied by lime bra and shorts underneath.
The only non-neutral color Wozniacki wore earlier during the season was for doubles matches. The two photos at the end of this post were taken at the US Open and you can see Wozniacki wearing a yellow shirt.
In Sydney, at the beginning of the season, Wozniacki sported the same dress she started wearing in 2009. The Dane followed it with the dress which she then wore for what it seemed like forever, including two Grand Slams – Australian Open and Roland Garros. And that wasn’t enough – she wore that same dress, only white (as if the previous version wasn’t almost white as well) at Wimbledon.
And from the previews we’ve seen for 2011, seems like adidas by Stella McCartney will not bring in anything new any time soon.
All in all, I love Maria Kirilenko’s Caroline Wozniacki’s outfits, although some diversity wouldn’t hurt, especially if you take into account that Wozniacki played 22 tournaments in 2010. My favorite is the black dress that Wozniacki wore towards the end of the season, because it has the most character, the texture and design are really unique.
What do you think of Stella McCartney’s choices for Caroline Wozniacki in 2010? What are your favorite dresses? Were you bored by beige/white/gray?
Do remind yourselves of Wozniacki’s on-court fashion in 2009. It was different because it featured a switch from adidas Adilibria to Stella McCartney. (photos: Residual Image, Ralf Reinecke, © Neal Trousdale, Glee_Girl, jack_we, karlnorling, Ogre a Little Turtle)
