Tennis fan Gavin Rossdale shows off his talents (ahem) at last Sunday’s Evert/Raymond James Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic in Delray Beach, Fla. Here’s hoping his quality time with Roger Federer and those playdates with the Hewitts pay off!

maria sharapova - nike - madrid

Maria Sharapova returned to action at this week’s WTA Tour Championships after a four-week absence. She faced Daniela Hantuchova in a round-robin match for the Red Group.

The dueling Nike-sponsored babes came out in their fall frocks, with Hantuchova continuing with the black Fall Control pieces (including the cute two-tiered ruffle skirt; see a picture here) and Maria sporting a bow collar blouse in deep burgundy and a front button skort in sheen pink. (No Drop Shot dress for her, I guess.)

Sharapova eventually triumphed 6-4, 7-5. But who do you think won the fashion showdown? Tell us!

p.s. No word on who has Maria’s pieces for sale.

British fashion rag Arena released its annual Power list in the December issue, naming David Beckham Britain’s most powerful man 40 years old or younger.

“Beckham has topped this year’s [list] because he is arguably the most recognisable Brit on the planet,” says editor Giles Hattersley. “David is our biggest sporting export and has inspired boys of all ages to become passionate about football — and fashion.”

The youngest lad on the list is Scottish tennis player Andy Murray (39th). Now I would throw some money at a magazine that put Andy (concave chest and all) in shots like that. Wouldn’t you?

Others on the list are Prince Harry (fifth), actor Daniel Craig (10th), DJ Mark Ronson (18th), and comedian Sacha Baron Cohen (25th).

Two more photos after the cut…

fashion focus: fred perry + alastair mckimm

November 6, 2007

Fred Perry has partnered with stylist Alastair McKimm (i-D, Italian Vogue, Numero Homme) to produce pieces for FP’s Limited Edition line. This comes after their successful collaboration on a Blank Canvas collection last summer.

Browse: The crewneck (£75), polo (£85), and hoodie (£100) — all fake long-sleeved — keep relatively tame, which is in line with most Fred Perry goods. They’re all twin-tipped at the sleeves and collars, plus all come with removeable laurels (those circular badges on the breast). Get a closer look here.

Blank Canvas: McKimm had previously collaborated with Fred Perry on the Blank Canvas series. As you can see above, he chose to draw stripes, logos, ties, collars, etc. on short-sleeved crewnecks.

Artists who’ve participated on this project include David Saunders aka David David, who created this medallion shirt;

and Peter Jensen, whose f/w ’06 collection of polos with matching neckties/bowties plus cardigans with elbow patches received the 2006 Best Collaboration award from Wallpaper. He also designed a collection of women’s wear that came out this past March.
