Sharapova celebrates her 21st in Lanvin

April 23, 2008

Maria Sharapova celebrated her 21st birthday at Tenjune last night with a party thrown by Tag Heuer and attended by her nearest and dearest, which included Michelle Trachtenberg, a compact Dave Annable, Vera Wang, Anna Wintour, Doo.ri, and the duo behind Ruffian. The invitation-only crowd danced to the music of DJ Cassidy What’s up with Tenjune being the favored venue of tennis players to party?

Masha looked good wearing a blue Lanvin dress from the Spring 2008 RTW. She continues to flirt with loose fabric, this time in the form of a mini-train that went down the back of her outfit. It’s the Wimbledon swan dress all over again!

She added a tiara, a vintage clutch, and a pair of black, peep-toe Louboutins to round out the look.

Do you know what Maria wore to Letterman?

April 23, 2008

Masha played tennis with David Letterman and Billy Crystal outside of the Late Show studio when she stopped by on Monday. (Watch: Masha and Dave play tennis)

Help me out: Does anyone know about that pleated bib/cape she’s wearing? Who’s it by?

Fashion Focus: leaving Lemaire ‘lone

April 23, 2008

The side project of adorable Christopher Lemaire is nothing like the work he does as creative director of Lacoste. Free from the shackles of a “brand DNA” (and there’s 75 years of it!), Lemaire turns instead to personal influences in music when designing for his year-old eponymous label. (He was a DJ in Paris before leaving to work for Lacroix and YSL, and before taking over at Lacoste in 2000.)

“At Lemaire, I’m starting from a blank page, everything is linked to my personal sensibilities and it is a lot more introverted,” he tells Refinery29. The collection has lots of slim yet baggy silhouettes (think pleated pants, gathered and cinched fabrics, etc.) My fave is the men’s polo with an animal graphic (looks like a llama?).

Browse: This season’s influence is “[1960s] beach party with a scratch of new wave attitude.” See the full collection at www.lemairestyle.com.

Ripe for the picking: Orchard Street’s Spring ’08 collection

April 23, 2008

NYC-based streetwear brand Orchard Street teams with Claremont for another tennis-inspired Spring line. (They started up last year.)

The logo with neon yellow roses are back (squint enough and you’ll see its tennis ball skeleton) along with this elaborate “Seven Star Brand” insignia pictured above. That’s just DYING to be a tattoo. Any takers?

Buy: You’ll eventually be able to grab the goods on the Orchard Street website. Right now they’re still peddling the winter collection.

A tennis fashion gallery

April 23, 2008

More and more news/magazine portals are doing tennis fashion pieces these days. Some are great; some, not so much (like this one eschewing Borg‘s short shorts and loving Rafa‘s capris. No thank you, Martha!).

Check out this gallery out of MSN (pegged to Masha‘s 21st birthday — hunh?); you might run across some clothes and accessories that you haven’t seen Serena, Venus, or Maria wear before.
