TORONTO --(Business Wire)-- Nov. 18, 2004 --

Velocity is preparing to open an office in the Ukraine in order offer its services directly to Eastern Europe. The Company recently began interviewing prospective Eastern European joint venture partners. Velocity's global talent division intends to focus on representing new talent and acquiring operating talent and modeling agencies. Velocity believes that the new Super Models and Role-Models for women are new talent such as the blonde 17-year-old Russian goddess Maria Sharapova.

Maria has already been photographed for Gucci, Chanel and DKNY and she has signed contracts with Nike and Prince Racquets. Maria Sharapova appeared on the cover of Vogue magazine's August issue. Sharapova's spokesman at IMG Max Eisenbud said: "She loves fashion......Sometimes I think she will be spending most of her time on the catwalk, not on tennis courts." Mark Jacobs....."believes Maria Sharapova is a perfect face for Louis Vuitton, because she is not a commonplace beauty girl."

Wait a sec... did Maria actually sign a contract with Louis Vuitton, or is that Marc guy just saying that Maria WOULD (in the hypothetical sense) be perfect for the company? The article doesn't specifically mention a deal...

A great opportunity presents itself for Maria. I am sure she will be perfect for any top haute couture brand. I always feel that Maria does not have to try very hard for these opportunities. Unlike some players who always try very hard (despite their lack of model/actress qualities) for a career in entertainment or fashion industry

Reading this is making me think of Victoria Beckham... :) The designer labels, the talk of fashion... :)

Anyway, good luck Maria. :)

Thanks for the article TC. I figured the contract with Louis Vitton was coming but I didn't know it would be so soon. I can only hope Maria isn't gorging herself on too much too soon as far as endorsements go.

I was thinking the same thing.:rolleyes: Also, if there is a "deal" is it international or just in Russia, Balkins, etc.?

Sharapova's spokesman at IMG Max Eisenbud said: "She loves fashion......Sometimes I think she will be spending most of her time on the catwalk, not on tennis courts." IMG only cares about the money Maria can earn in endorsements.:mad: Shame on them.:fiery:
