Players glammed it up for the legendary Sony Ericsson Player Party on Wednesday, held at the cavernous LIV nightclub at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel.
Here are some first shots from the step-and-repeat, with me doing my best Joan Rivers:
Rafael Nadal is adorable, but it’s time for him to get his wardrobe in order. I’m not saying needs to ask Roger for Anna Wintour’s phone number (God, no!) but the guy is in desperate need of a shirt that fits. And jeans he didn’t just pick off his hotel room floor. The shoes. . .I’m trying to figure them out. . .are they patent leather Keds?
This is either Rafa’s “What’s the meaning of life?” face or “Damn, I could use a hamburger!” face. I’m going with hamburger.
I like that James Blake makes an effort. But the overall effect is underwhelming for someone with his obvious physical gifts. It’s like cute-guy-at-wedding-meets-Lexus-salesman. I want something with more sex appeal.
Alright, Maria’s making stylist Rachel Zoe earn her keep with this ambtious number! You know that wisp of a tank top cost at least $400. But I gotta hand it to her – the girl can pull off friggin’ HAREM pants without looking like I Dream of Genie. Just another reason to envy her. (Oh, but what’s up with the hair? Growing out bangs?)
Venus’s expression says it all: effortless elegance. Besides the on-court hot pants and that nipple incident at the ’07 Wimbledon dinner, the woman always looks perfectly, prettily appropriate. Nice job, V!
Now go win some tennis matches, you ridiculously good looking people!
