at the year-end party, maria shines in thakoon


You know Maria Sharapova wasn’t too bummed about being runner-up to Justine Henin at last week’s Year-End Championships in Madrid.

She sat out for almost two months to nurse her ailing shoulder, and in the meantime cleaned out the skeleton in her closet by auctionining off that cursed U.S. Open day dress. The result? A sexy librarian look from Nike and a kick-ass serve that got her a $500,000 check for second-place.

To celebrate after the long match (and a long year), Maria attended the tournament’s players’ party dressed in the metallic orange Thakoon frock and a pair of black t-strap platforms by Lanvin.

What do you think of the outfit? Tell us!

    About that sexy librarian look… Maria says on her website:
    “My dad gets quote of the week describing my outfit in Madrid as “something you would wear on September 1st, to the first day of school.”

    I am sure this is the look Yuri Sharapov had in mind 🙂

    “Hello, my name is Maria Sharapova and I have the shoulders of a plow ox!”

    Seriously. This dress gives her Frankenstein’s frame.

  3. Anna Says:

    ^^ Agreed. Some people forget about their frame.

  4. Jon Says:

    It looks like she tried to dress like a tree trunk for Halloween. Too late.

  5. Nick Says:

    I think it is quite ugly, the wrong color for her and it gives her no shape beyond a rectangular box. This was a definitely a fault.

  6. butter Says:

    Wow, looks like Maria’s been practicing her own version of the “duck face” uhm…not good.

  7. Ana Says:

    Soooo not a good look on her frame. Faulty McFaulterson.

  8. Sonja Says:

    I hate that outfit. Very unflattering. She can do better.

    But what I adore about her: She does dare to wear super high heels despite her height. Thumbs up for that!
