The September 2013 issue of Shape Magazine will feature Maria Sharapova on the cover with byline: “Toned ABS! Shapely BUTT! Lean LEGS! Tennis Goddess Maria Sharapova Reveals Her Hot-Body Secrets”.
Besides giving advice on how to perfect your abs, the Russian shares one of the secrets of a successful person’s mentality:
You have to find success through who you are, not someone else. I admired certain players when I was coming up, but I never had one person I wanted to emulate. So when kids say they want to be just like me, I tell them: “No, you want to do better!“
The always-perfectly-dressed tennis star showed her body in bikinis by Hervé Léger by Max Azria, Prism and Versace, while also working elegant dresses, skirts, tops, jewelry and heels by other luxury designers such as Calvin Klein, Manolo Blahnik and Bottega Veneta. The Russian admires the style of Audrey Hepburn and prefers classic pieces that remain fashionable for more than one season. (photos via The Slice)
