Best Dressed Of The Week: Maria Sharapova

From parties to premieres, Kimberlee Oo brings us the weekly red carpet wrap-up.

Maria Sharapova in Burberry Wimbledon

Tennis ace Maria Sharapova is currently in London for Wimbledon, however she swapped her usual centre court attire for a pre-fall 2013 Burberry Prorsum dress at the pre-Wimbledon party. The blonde superstar looked polished and slick in this monochrome sheath, accessorising with a simple gold belt and a Charlotte Olympia clutch. The high neck and cinched in waist emphasise her toned, athletic figure, while her swept-back hair and light makeup complete her professional look. Take that, Serena!

This simple pattern packs a punch on the red carpet, and it’s something we can totally imagine that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge would love. If you’re looking for a grown-up party outfit or dressy work ensemble, this classic shape is universally flattering. Choose one in a bright print (but stay away from anything animal-related – leopard, zebra, stripes…) or go for basic black for a look that will outlast the trends. Add some depth with coloured accessories, killer heels or shiny metallics like Maria here.
