The tennis powerhouse with a face for fashion has forged a tightly managed slew of collaborations, and is currently taking the city by storm to celebrate her Frank Gehry for Tiffany's earrings and her line of accessories for Nike-owned (Maria's sponsor) Cole Haan.
Sharapova shone in leopard and shooties to complement her signature earrings, designed by the luminary architect for Tiffany's and called Stria because of their lightning-bolt shape. Sharapova has created for herself a carefully managed image with exclusively high-end collaborations, transcending the tennis bracelet tradition with the sophisticated and modern Gehry collection, and parlaying her Nike sponsorship from whites and skirts to a design stint at their luxury leather brand, Cole Haan. In fact, Sharapova will follow up the Stria launch with a personal appearance at Cole Haan for Fashion's Night Out.
Regardless of how she plays at the U.S. Open (whose fashion is worth looking forward to!), she's doing a good job gracing the city, and design world, with her presence.
