On the day that’s filled with love and romance, Maria Sharapova opted instead to focus her agenda on the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City.
The former Grand Slam champion and this year’s Australian Open finalist attended the Vera Wang and Rodarte shows sitting alongside names such as Anna Wintour and Viola Davis. Maria wore a slightly edgy yet classy look with a pop of color for the Vera Wang Fall 2012 Collection, and a sleeveless purple day-dress for the Rodarte Fall presentation.
A glamorous event like this is a perfect match for the most glamorous player on the tour, and gives Maria a chance to hone her skills as a guest designer for Cole Haan and Nike; seeing what trends sweep the runways this season.
Maria has recently been defeated by Angelique Kerber at the tournament in Paris, and this event will give her a chance to regroup and take her mind off the loss for a while before getting back on the practice court.
