Maria Sharapova donned a tuxedo vest and shorts during the first round at Wimbledon today. Check out the photos below!
She first appeared on Court One wearing a single-breasted jacket with some gold stitching on the collar lapel. She removed the jacket to reveal a tuxedo style bib that was sleeveless and was see through in the back and just a little bit in the front. Another surprise was the fact that she wore shorts. She said:
“It’s hard to do things different with white. I thought ’why not do shorts this year?’ I’ve never done it at a Grand Slam. You know, if there’s one place to do it, it’s here.�?
What was Maria’s inspiration for the tuxedo look? She said on her website:
“I love menswear in general. You know, I love tuxedo jackets. I love things that are actually a little bit baggier and wide.”
Do you want to get your hands on the outfit? According to the Nike website, you can get the top and shorts at $55.00 a piece.
