What’s Wimby without plenty of fashion talk?
Maria Sharapova: I’m just not feeling her self-described menswear look. First of all, Roger did the warm up blazer better for the past two years. Second, while Maria can pull off the Land’s End mommy shorts better than most (Venus could work them, too, I bet) they really aren’t Centre Court material. Third, the bra under mesh gag should stay in 1995 where it belongs. And the top’s bib-like button placket is sooo knock-off Stella McCartney. If the blouse was just plain and crisp, I think the outfit would work better. But of course I’m being picky here, because Maria sets such high style standards.
Rafa Nadal: Like Maria, he’s so hot that he can almost get away with anything. But for some reason the baggy sleeveless top (didn’t Wimbledon ban these?), the long shorts and the headband are saying MALE NURSE to me (my husband agrees.) Now there’s nothing wrong with being a male nurse, and God knows I’d be getting my tonsils out ASAP if Rafa was working nights at Kaiser, but if you’re going to win Wimbledon do you really want to be photographed in your scrubs? Paging nurse Nadal. Okay, I like the sound of that.
