a train wreck in istanbul


…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.

    Elena wore it best =)

    butter: I agree. Whatever the circumstances that surrounded the photo shoot, Elena looked the best.

  3. Nez Says:

    i agree with butter… Elena looks better than the other two girls

    Alex: I saw that racquet, too. It’s glorious, but waaay too light. I’m all about heavier ones. Easier to control.

    Yep, Elena wins that battle (for once).
