Thumbs up Kim and Jen's outfits for USOPEN

Fila Gets In on U.S. Open Style-Fest
Mon Aug 25, 1:47 PM ET

Fashion Wire Daily NY August 24, 2003 - Tennis fashionistas Venus and Serena Williams (news - web sites) and Anna Kournikova (news - web sites) may be sitting out the U.S. Open (news - web sites) this week, but that doesn't mean there won't be any style on the courts in Queens.



Fila is suiting up Jennifer Capriati and Kim Clijsters for the tournament, each in an outfit created by design director Freya Tamayo specifically for her. And though neither will be sporting a spandex catsuit (à la Serena Williams' ensemble at last year's U.S. Open), both women are sure to turn heads in their flashy frocks.


Capriati's racer-back tank dress was made in France, but it's an all-American look. The navy dress is adorned with white stars and features an all-over gold shimmer. The 27-year-old athlete has even coordinated her navy and metallic gold accessories to complete the ensemble.


Clijster, currently the no. 1-ranked player in women's tennis, is taking the glitter factor even further with her 100% silver lame dress, also a racer-back tank, complemented by white and black accessories. Fila has also customized each player's footwear to match her ensemble.


Both women will wear their signature dresses during select matches over the course of the two-week tournament. The rest of the time they will sport Fila's US Open Collection of in-line apparel.


Fans will be able to purchase both dresses for themselves at Fila's on-site retail store at the event. Capriati's outfit will also be available, with very limited distribution, at Paragon in New York City. The suggested retail price is $90.

Well, I found the article somewhere else too. Plus, Clijsters'
dad said before the open FILA was planning to do something special for one night match. So I think it is true. Although as a Kim fan I must say I am more worried about this dress than her next opponent I just hope she doesn't end up looking like a Christmas ornament

No it is not a lie Fila have made Kim and Jen their own special outfits, they are not on any website for a simple reason they are supposed to be a surprise. The outfits are for them only no one else they are not part of the Fila range no one else has been given them that is why they aren't on the websites. They are for a selestct match only, I just hope Fila isn't keeping their outfits for the final believing that both girls will get there and then we may miss out on seeing them.

But Kim's sounds well interesting.........

Yeah, I think they are going to were them for the night matches. Jen is wearing her's right now. The bottom is grey with stars/sparkles all over. We can't see that top yet.

Same but I'm pretty confident it won't have stars all over it cause then she'd look american and she is belgian. Or maybe I just have hope

But they said in the article Kim's is all silver I wonder why Jen wore hers in the first match and Kim didn't Maybe Kim doesn't like hers
