fashion focus: sharapova’s diamonds

September 8, 2011

Maria Sharapova wore diamond drop earrings from Tiffany‘s Grade collection as she competed in this year’s U.S. Open. The collection features princess-cut diamonds bezel-set in square designs and paired with round diamonds in platinum. (Clothes: from Nikekits; warm-up)

On the court: Sadly, Maria couldn’t capitalize on her seeding, falling in the first week to Flavia Pennetta: 3-6, 6-3, 4-6 in the third round. (Draw: See how the last eight women are faring.)

Buy: Tiffany Grace Drop earrings with princess-cut and round brilliant diamonds in platinum. Carat total weight .76; $7,000; Tiffany.com

french fashion focus: sharapova looks to steel and diamonds

May 25, 2011

Paris, Je t’aime: The French Open dress on Maria Sharapova was inspired by the City of Lights, marrying Masha’s ideal for unrestricted movement with the theory behind the Eiffel Tower’s construction: the structure is lighter that it seems.

And so they created this lightweight yellow Line 9 dress (referring to the Paris Metro, we assume). Note the top mesh layer on the skirt, which adds to the visible flowiness as Maria moves around the court, and the diamond cut-out on the back. All the lines along the body harken to old methods of corsetry now applied with modern techniques. She keeps going back to corsets, that one.

For the curious, she’s wearing a Nike Luna Speed 3 shoe.

Buy: Nike Line 9 Knit Tennis Dress, $120, tennisexpress.com.

Girl’s best friend: The Tiffany & Co. drop earrings that she’s wearing this week have rose-cut diamonds set in platinum. Buy: Tiffany cobblestone earrings with rose-cut diamonds in platinum; $3,200; tiffany.com.

Brackets: At the French, seventh-seeded Maria took out Mirjana Lucic 6-3, 6-0 in the first round and next faces Caroline Garcia. How far do you think she’ll go? Remember, she took a title in Rome. You can see the rest of her section of the draw here.

sharapova’s teardrops — the good kind

March 30, 2011

Maria Sharapova took over three hours to defeat 26th seed Alexandra Dulgheru 3-6, 7-6 (6), 7-6 (5) in the quarters of this week’s Sony Ericsson Open in Miami. Up next will be Andrea Petkovic, who’s already upset Caro Wozniacki and Jelena Jankovic on the way to the semis. And things don’t look good for Maria: Petko’s already beaten her once this year, at the fourth round in Melbourne.

In the bottom half of the women’s draw, the Radwanksa/Zvonareva and Clijsters/Azarenka matches’ll determine who ends up with spots in the semis. (Scan: SEO Draws)

But who cares about Masha’s ugly stats — 17 double faults; twice as many unforced errors as Dulgheru — or that she rolled her ankle late in the third set? Take a look at those turquoise teardrop earrings from Tiffany! Matches her turquoise dress, of course.

fashion focus: starfish in a little blue box

September 24, 2010

You know about our affinity for all things aquatic (what’s the word for “lover of dead zones”?), so it should come as no surprise that we’re into designer Elsa Peretti‘s line of starfish jewelry for Tiffany. Peretti is also the one behind the drop earrings worn by Maria Sharapova as part of her 2010 Wimbledon get-up.

Browse: Our fave is that simple brooch, available in 18k gold ($2,200) and sterling silver ($350). Rest of the goods are here.

a swig of fresh water

August 25, 2010

Maria Sharapova dropped by Evian’s “Babies on the Inside” event in Soho yesterday. The Openhouse gallery was packed with folks taking pics with the Baby tees, and in the back, Maria spent some time hanging out, chatting about idolizing Bono (for his humanitarianism), being a fan of Jack Nicholson (her favorite movie: “Something’s Gotta Give”), and other topics.

Over the Evian tee Maria wore a black DVF crop blazer with frayed lapels. She matched those with metallic Phillip Lim hot pants and peep-toe booties from her Fall 2010 Cole Haan collection.

And while there’s no official announcement from Tiffany, Maria will again be wearing their jewelry as part of her U.S. Open ensemble — this time drop earrings with yellow diamonds. Expect a Cole Haan bag to go with the Nike clothes and shoes, of course.

sharapova’s wimbledon

June 26, 2010

Maria Sharapova has secured her place in the second week of Wimbledon 2010 by beating Barbora Zahlavova Strycova 7-5, 6-3. Her opponent in the Round of 16: Serena. We can’t wait!

With no options for wacko color combos like in Melbourne and at Roland Garros, Nike played with the construction of Masha’s Lawn Women’s tennis dress, pulling the same petal theme that’s worked Maria in past outings up to the bust. To complement her long frame, they threw on a cropped warm-up blazer. Maria rounds everything out with a Cole Haan satchel with the grey snakeskin handles and gold hardware.

Speaking of hardware, Tiffany‘s provided her with the $1,500 sterling silver version of Elsa Peretti’s Diamond by the Yard drop earrings. Detail pic below in the gallery.

Buy: Lawn Women’s Tennis Dress, $120, nike.com; Elsa Peretti Diamonds by the Yard Sterling Silver earrings, $1,500, tiffany.com; Prince Sharapova Collection Racquet bag in Rose/Grey/White, more info at Prince; Cole Haan info not available at posting time.

let’s do the masha mash!

January 15, 2010

(We were working on the blog late one night…)

Here’s what Maria Sharapova will be wearing on the court for the 2010 Australian Open.

The dress: The solid blue slip dress with the printed mesh overlay — a design plucked from Maria’s personal sketchbook a year ago — has some hints of yellow and green to help the outfit pop in the bright blue courts of Melbourne Park. Note the high neckline with the ruffled edging. The Australian dresses are never our faves, and this one is about par. What do you think of it? Tell us!.

This piece is part of a larger campaign, Nike’s Maria Sharapova Collection, which’ll have seven dresses (along with tank/skirt combos) dropping throughout the year. She even helped select the army of tennis players (sorry, models) to help do her bidding on court: Kai-Chen Chang, Julia Goerges, Anastasia Pivovarova, and Madison Keys will all wear pieces from this collection.

Click on to see her shoes, her bag, and her drop earrings — all after the cut!

sharapova wears chloe (and gehry) on the roof

August 28, 2009

Maria Sharapova‘s latest Grand Slam earrings — part of her partnership with Tiffany & Co. — come in the form of a design by Frank Gehry. A party in honor of the piece’s debut happened on Wednesday night at the penthouse of the Cooper Square Hotel. Blake Lively showed up, and Maria brought out a birthday cake in honor of the Gossip Girl‘s birthday.

zellige-paloma-picasso

Note: We had reported that Masha’s earrings were available for sale. Only the sterling silver version is available. We apologize for the error.

Sign of the times: Even Tiffany & Co. is tightening the purse strings by showcasing an (ahem) affordable pair of earrings on Maria Sharapova — to match the white and tan Nike Wimbledon dress (complete with Sgt. Pepper jacket!).

Or should we say an affordable pair for us, but special for her (isn’t that always the case?). Maria’s version of the Paloma Picasso Zellige drop earrings are custom-made, with 18 karat yellow gold, based on centuries-old mosaic patterns that surround the fountain at Paloma’s home in Morocco. For the rest of us, earrings similar to Masha’s gold custom drops are available on the Tiffany website — in sterling silver form.

Buy: Paloma Zellige Drop earrings; sterling silver, for pierced ears; $250; tiffany.com.

Scoreline: The 2004 champ slipped and slid her way to a 7-5 6-4 win over Ukrainian qualifier Viktoriya Kutuzova in the first round of Wimbledon 2009. The Russian observed that the grass on Centre Court was damp and longer than when she won the title five years ago, making the conditions like that of a clay court. Up next for her is Gisela Dulko, who beat Stephanie Foretz 6-3, 7-5.

maria dresses up for her first major of 2009

May 26, 2009

We here at TSF are all smiles that Maria Sharapova and Nike are back at it with a well-calculated outfit for the Russian (when in Paris…). They went with a layered dress in varying textures of fabric and in two hues of blue. The tiers fall nicely on Maria’s frame, looking like like enormous fish scales. Unfortunately, it didn’t look so good when she moved around. What do you think of this dress? Tell us!

Scoreline: In this, her first major since Wimbledon of 2008, Maria beat Belarusian Anastasiya Yakimova 3-6, 6-1, 6-2 and next faces 11th seed Nadia Petrova.

Round it out: Maria walked onto the court with a cropped jacket, a large white tote, and of course her aquamarine and diamond drop earrings — in 18 karats of white gold — from Tiffany. (Buy: Drop Earrings; $2,100; Tiffany.com.) What, you say? You want to see the bag and jacket? Feast your eyes on a few pictures — all after the cut…

for the love of earrings: anticipating maria sharapova’s return

January 28, 2009

One of the reasons why we’re giddy about the planned return of Maria Sharapova to the SEWTA next month: we’ve missed her earrings.

If you may remember, she teamed up with Tiffany & Co. for a multi-year deal to show their wares at the slams, beginning at the 2008 French Open. She followed these up with some silver drop earrings to match her tuxedo outfit at Wimbledon.

Masha has entered the draw for the Open GDF SUEZ in Paris (formerly the Open Gaz de France). This indoor tournament begins on February 9.

feminine jewelry to match sharapova’s masculine outfit

June 24, 2008

Tiffany & Co. continues its Grand Slam jewelry partnership with Maria Sharapova by dressing her lobes with these Swing Triple drop earrings.

The brilliant pair (made with diamonds and platinum) complemented Maria’s Nike tuxedo-inspired outfit, both of which showcased the Russian’s fashion sensibilities in her first-round Wimbledon win over Frenchwoman Stephanie Foretz. Maria beat the qualifier 6-1, 6-4.

Masha to wear Tiffany at Roland Garros

May 22, 2008

For the French, Masha will wear Tiffany & Co. designer Elsa Peretti’s Wave earrings in 18K gold.

Buy: You can grab a pair of the RG earrings here for $1,150. Also available in white gold.

The Paris Dress, from what I can tell, is currently sold out.
