One of the world's most famous and glamorous tennis super star and one of the world's most famous landmark has something in common.
Maria Sharapova chose to debut her new Eiffel Tower-inspired dress at the 2011 French Open Tennis Grand Slam.
The Russian tennis blonde bombshell opened play at the 2011 French Open wearing a new, canary-yellow Nike dress designed with Paris' most famous landmark in mind, the Eiffel Tower.
Sharapova cruised to an easy 6-3, 6-0 victory in her first-round match over Mirjana Lucic while wearing the new garment, which features stitching meant to evoke the iron lattice design of the tower that dominates the Parisian skyline.
The 24-year-old Russian entered Paris as the No. 7 seed and was fresh off the biggest clay court victory of her career in Rome, a win which made her one of the favorites at Roland Garros.
In the early rounds, at least, the dress was the showcase.
The designer - Nike says it's lightweight and breathable, features a diamond shape in the back for flexibility and a two-layered skirt or jersey and mesh to help movement.
It's the best look Sharapova has had at a major in years.
But can she win her first French Open with this attire??? We don't know.
All the best Maria..
