(My thoughts go out to those affected by the earthquake that hit Chile today…)
The SEWTA Tour hosted their Year-End Championships Players’ party in Madrid on Sunday night (after the longest three-set final which saw Justine Henin defend her title).
Black was the evening’s shade, found on LBDs, floor-length skirts, and a sexy halter bubble dress on Serena Williams. Metallics showed up on Ana Ivanovic and Sharapova (in Thakoon). There were lots of gold accessories, too: a belt on Ana, a brooch on Anna Chakvetadze, and chains adorning Serena’s Louis Vuitton bag. And Jelena Jankovic separated herself from the pack with a body-hugging leopard print dress that puts Bethanie Mattek to shame.
Here are some photos from the shindig. Make sure to check out the entire gallery on the WTA website.
Anna punctuated her black half turtleneck knit top with a gold brooch at the bust and toted classic quilted leather purse. Meanwhile, her oft-braided hair got some air.
Ana went Victorian with her lacy silk top, gold belt, and floor-length skirt (is that a key around her neck?); and Jelena pulled off a leopard print ensemble.
Momma long-legs Daniela Hantuchova let her hair down and wore a fur caplet over her little black mini dress.
See Serena, Sveta, Justine, and Marion after the cut…
Serena dressed up her black halter bubble dress (complete with a fabric flower at the collar) with an LV bag and a chunky black bracelet.
Svetlana Kuznetsova topped off her black outfit with a houndstooth Members Only/military-style jacket.
Justine revived the shiny dress shirt she wore earlier in the week, and Bartoli tried to fend off the cold with a vanilla-colored pea coat and a ruffled dress worthy of spring weather.
