I'm not sure, does Maria have someone who advises her what to wear for differnt events?. Its obvious she has her on court outfits specially made and in the main they are usually great, bar the US Open :tape:
She usually wears nice outfits for practice sessions but sometimes I really dislike what she wears to the events, its like she's trying to dress like she's 30+ but she's still just a teenager!. I know she has to wear the dresses and outfits for the events/sponsors but maybe a new stylist could help her out...
What do you think?
Generally when she photographed in her normal life she seems to have a good dress sense, I might be wrong anyway, I'm just a guy, it would be interesting to know what the girls think especially...

I love what she wears to events and such because she always looks very classy, I think the reason why they're not what people would expect is because it's the really expensive stuff from designers and I don't think Maria wants to ever be seen as conforming to the norms so is always wearing something different to other girls...Her dresses must be made specially for her (because she is so tall) so designers probably make stuff just for Maria!

Here are some of my faves:

I've got shorts just like them and was well happy when I saw Maria in them.

Im fairly certain Maria decides on her own fashion and doesnt have a 'stylist' as such but she does get stuff from some of her favourite designers afaik. I have no problems with whatever Maria wants to wear, she gets away with just about anything.

It's certainly very hit-or-miss :lol:
I like that she goes for different styles though, even though they don't always work. A lot of the teen/early 20's star set look like they stepped right out of a trendy clothing magazine. They just wear whatever's cool at the time.
Maria goes her own route, which is always the much cooler route to take. :cool:

being a 19 year old girl myself i think she dresses like she's 30 or something but then again she does have some funky pieces and can look good. I agree with Laura it is a bit hit or miss, or a bit hows your father. Maybe she feel pressure to dress that way, who knows? :shrug:

That's the only dress I don't like with the shoes she looks very tacky. But she needs to make some mistakes so she can get it right next time.

Really? see I find myself inspired by Maria's dress sense, because I'm 19 and 6 ft so most fashions don't really suit me, like they won't suit Maria, so I find I wear a lot of stuff similar to Maria.

In general im a big fan, i like how she is unique and individual and stands out, not being a follower and not a fashion victim. I think generally she gets it right and she looks stunning, a good mix of classic, retro and funky stuff. She is a fashionista and although she doesnt always get in right at least people are talking about her.

I must admit that there are times where maria dresses like an old lady
Like that outfit she wore in mexico, they looke like a bag of potatoes :tape:

But everyone has his own style, so if she feels comfortable in it then it's all good :D And it's not that simple to find something that realy fits you
especially for maria as she is 6 ft 2 but overall I think she looks good in almost everything she wears.

I liked what she wore when she was on Regis and Kelly

Maria gives us such a smorgasboard (don't forget sports illustrated) of outfits and pictures---what a visual feast!

I trust her judgement----and continue to enjoy.

I like about 90% of what she wears, that's a lot :)

I think she looks great on and off the court, most of the time.

the recent glimmery one at pre-wimbledon party gets her to A+.

the ESPY one when she appeared with Andy Roddick was great too.

she should just trade clothes with Mischa Barton. they have almost the same body shape and everything that Maria rocks i can see the outfit on Mischa as well.

more white stilettos please Maria they are the hottest heels ever.

Yep, I like that... I think she looks pretty close to her age there... not that I would wear it myself, however!

Being an almost 18 (17 sounds too young now :p) female, I some times cringe at what Maria wears... I probably like about 50% of what she wears off court! Almost everything last year was just :hearts: :yeah:! This year it has been :scared: :unsure:

I'll be totally honest now.

90% of the time, I think Maria has god-awful dress sense.

90% of the time you think that or 90% of the time her dress sense is awful :lol:

90% of the time Maria is just wearing casual training sort of stuff anyway...when she dresses up she likes to do it in style and I think shes got the body and the presense to pull most things off.

I have no fashion sense whatsoever. When God decided to distribute that, I was playing elsewhere and never got my share. So I'll leave the critical stuff to everyone else.

But I should still be able to tell which ones I liked. OK, The only outfit that Maria wore that I really liked was Birmingham/Wimbledon '04.

She's just too pretentious and dresses too old. She looks good in bright colours that suit her age, not dowdy gowns and other monstrosities that serve to make her look older than she really is.

I think this is one of Maria's all time worst outfits. She looks like a decrepid old fortune teller, who should be sat in a tent peering over a crystal ball.

She's making the most horrible face in this picture. I don't think white is her color -- she looks best when the color isn't white or off-white. Such as in here

Best dressed person on tour. She follows latest trends, yet unlike most (well all) of the others on the tour, she actually knows what flatters her figure and what looks good on her... instead of just buying things that are aesthetically pleasing to her. She's so smart. I love her.
