While much ink has been spilled about last month’s Fed Cup ties, not many folks covered who wore what. Here it goes:
Best dressed woman: Australian Samantha Stosur donned her country’s sporting colors against Austria. (what a smart way to get out of the red/blue/white rut. When I get appointed as U.S. Secretary of Style, my first act will be to choose national sporting colors. How about aubergine and espresso?)
Honorable mention: For those who faced the red/white/blue head-on, some pats on the back. Serena managed just fine, looking wonderful in Nike (and with a new hairdo, even):
And Nicole Vaidisova wore some bedazzled (!) Reebok:
Best dressed team, off-court: The Russians. The women’s version of the warmups are equally as cute as the men’s version. (From left to right: coach Shamil Tarpischev, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Nadia Petrova, Anna Chakvetadze, and Elena Vesnina.
Best dressed team, on-court: Kuznetsova and Petrova, whose pastels (and play) dominated against the Spaniards (They won 5-0).

Failing grade: The U.S. Team. Dude, Serena and Venus — tennis fashion icons — play Fed Cup, and you have them wearing this?
