Someone needs to bring that look back. I’m thinking this is something for Maria Sharapova or Daniela Hantuchova. Thoughts?

Night Tennis Miami update

I may have spoken too soon. It turns out that there might be some merit to this whole Night Tennis Miami business. Tournament organizers have scheduled five fashion shows with Fila, Roberto Cavalli, Diane von Furstenberg, Etro, and Village of Merrick Park (a local mall).

Roberto Cavalli: “…inspired by the colors of Mexico and the paintings of Frida Kahlo.”

Diane von Furstenberg: “(Her collection) All About Eve celebrates the birth of femininity with bold, brave colors and loose silhouettes.”
