The Masha Machine (mashine?) keeps churning ’em out, this time putting Maria Sharapova in recent editions of Vogue and Forbes.
2007’s Ten Best Dressed: Vogue, for their weekly Ten Best Dressed, chose to ask their readers whom they thought deserved to be the Best Dressed of 2007. The style mavens: Nicole Kidman, Sarah Jessica Parker, Masha, Christy Turlington, Cate Blanchett, Uma Thurman, Sienna Miller, Charlize Theron, Sofia Coppola, and Kate Moss.
Editors chose to feature the Peter Som dress Sharapova wore to the Land Rover Event that benefited her eponymous charity.
While some of you might be surprised by this distinction, let’s make a case: her support of relative newbies Som and Thakoon (at the YEC), while not ignoring mainstays like Michael Kors and Chanel, gives her plenty of chances to show off her fashion sense. And let’s not forget all her Nike dresses.
20 under 25: I have to give props to Forbes for finding creative ways to tell us that the same 100 people own all of the world. Masha has already been on a few of their lists (highest paid female athlete, top Russian celebrity) but they’re not done. Now the $23 million she banked between June ’06 and June ’07 puts her third on the “20 under 25” behind LeBron James ($27 million) and Reggie Bush ($24 million). She edged out Michelle Wie (in fourth with $19 million) for highest-ranked female. No-brainers: Miley Cyrus, the Olsens, the Harry Potter actors. Surprise: Mischa Barton.
