Maria Sharapova uses finesse to stretch out her 6’2” frame as she reaches for the ball on the tennis court, and she uses equal finesse to dress herself for the red carpet. Much of Maria’s red carpet style mimics her on-court style with a maxim that seems to say: less is more. Using her athletic figure to her advantage, she chooses shorter dresses with simple cuts that show off her toned arms and legs.
To get Maria’s style, choose a body-hugging dress in neutral colors—black, tan or bronze. Because short dresses are often too short for long legs, choose a knee-length dress without embellishment on the skirt and have a tailor hem it at mid-thigh. Pair the dress with a contrasting color heel and pull your hair back into a loose ponytail.
