Hot stuff: Australian Open fashion

As every year, the first Grand Slam of the year is a great catwalk to show new season designs. This year Maria Sharapova's dress was widely commented, with mostly negative reviews. Nevertheless she wasn't able to show it off a lot as she was defeated in the 1st round. Also controversial was Venus Williams's choice, not her outfit but her skin-coloured underwear that made the visual illusion of going commando.

And it was all yellow... Besides Venus Williams, some of the most popular players such as Ivanovic, Hantuchova and Kirilenko also picked yellow for their outfits.

By the way Kirilenko is looking much better now that she is not wearing Stella McCartney's designs. That burden is now for Caroline Wozniacki. I must admit that this time I have not found her design so unflattering, although grey was a little bit boring choice.

Thumbs up for Serena Williams and Jie Zheng.

As usual, thumbs down for Fila (Clijsters, Kuznetsova) and Yonex (Dementieva).

One of the worst outfits I've seen lately was Aravane Rezai's black and gold combination, completely inaproppiate for Australian summer. But she wasn't the worst one though. Lucie Safarova got that inglorious honor with her flashy t-shirt. Lucie, what the hell were you thinking?

And my pick for best dressed goes this time to Victoria Azarenka. Nothing special, but it really suited her (much better than her Wimbledon'09 outfit) and the pink details on her tank top, shoes, shoelaces and scrunchies perfectly matched her skirt.
