a train wreck in istanbul

May 22, 2007

…but it didn’t involve the Orient Express (which might go the way of the Western Union telegram after June, fyi).

It looks like some memos got lost in the mail, because I’m pretty sure that fashion icons Maria Sharapova and Venus Williams would never show up for an Istanbul Cup photo opp — complete with traditional Ottoman garb — looking like amateurs.

Masha (left) came overdressed with her slacks and platform sandals, and Venus (middle) wore white socks and shoes. WHAT?!

Elena Dementieva (right) either lucked out or dressed smart. Her silver pumps matched her outfit. Kudos.

puma gv hall of fame edition – on sale

Just a quick note that the Puma GV Hall of Fame Edition sneaker is now for sale, rounding out the company’s Guillermo Vilas-inspired campaign as of late.

And in case you’re wondering: that is Vilas’ mug shot on shoe’s tongue. Such subtle vanity! (What do you think of the shoes? Tell us.)

Of course I can’t figure out where to buy them. If you’re desperate, get them from sneakersnstuff (a Swedish merchant). If you have a stateside vendor, write me back with the info: TennisCBH AT Gmail DOT com.
