This year's BNP Paribas brought a lot of surprises - the early elimination of several top players like Andy Murray, Marcos Baghdatis, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, David Ferrer and Ivan Ljubicic; the injury of Kim Clijsters which prevented her from going ahead in the tournament. The biggest surprise might be the win of Novak Djokovic. At least, it seemed like after not very successful Aussie Open Rafa and Roger will fight for the BNP Paribas trophy. And they fought... but still not very successful.
Anyway, we, as usual, were closely monitoring not only the sophisticated techniques of the players, but also their fashion, and want to present you several fashion highlights from 2011 BNP Paribas Open. Though the major brands haven't released new collections yet, there is a lot to see except what we've already spotted on Australian Open.
On the men's side best fashion was represented by Roger Federer. Bright colors are really hot this season. Yellow looked great on Roger, and matching headband and sweatband with white shorts made the last touch to perfection.
The ruffles continue their fashion march on tennis court. Caro Wozniacki presented another outfit from Stella McCartney 2011 collection. However this dress might be an exception in ruffled "no-no-s". Here ruffles actually look rather elegant making an impression of a combined cocktail and tennis dress. Caro, as usual, went for contrast and paired it with bright red-orange panties.
The gray-orange version of Sergio Tacchini's outfit presented by Novak Djokovic is even better than what we saw at Australian Open (a white-blue version of the same outfit).
The trophy for the worst outfit at 2011 BNP Paribas Open we would give to Aravane Rezai. Yes, we forgot to mention this very outfit in our Worst Styles of the 2011 Australian Open, may be because it wasn't that bad, and the real worst style was so obvious, that anything else seemed just okay. But here we are once again. Aravane, who doesn't have a clothing sponsor wears French brand Scheyda. The outfit she chose for Aussie Open and BNP Paribas Open 2011 in black and pink seems to be too much fancy. What do you think?
