Riccardo Tisci created the outfit of Maria Sharapova for the US Open


Tennis player returns to the championship and intends to win in the dress-mascot

Dress of Maria Sharapova, Riccardo Tisci and Nike for US Open

Maria Sharapova returns to the US Open. Next week, she will be back on the court, and at that moment she will certainly wear black dress covered in Swarovski crystals and with lace inserts, which she and Nike created together with the former Givenchy creative director (expert in the issues of rhinestones), Riccardo Tisci.

The crystals will sparkle in the beams of searchlights directed to the court. Why black? "It was decided at once," says Masha. - There were not even questions about what exactly we will do for night matches. " The choice of color is symbolic: in 2006, Sharapova won the US Open in a black dress and intends to repeat the triumph.

Maria wants to feel elegant on the court, and this little black dress reminds of Audrey Hepburn's minimalistic outfits by Hubert de Givenchy. What could be more elegant? Maria accessorised her dress with glittering black bomber jacket created especially by Tisci. We will not doubt that Sharapova will be the most fashionable on court, although we also have no doubts about her victory, especially when there is such a dress-mascot. We are waiting for a series of evening matches.
