US Open outfits: best and worst!
I am opening this thread because of all the opinions about Ladies outfits, just reply by posting who you think has the best dress and who has the worst.
Simple!

This could be fun!

I am still deciding myself.

Serena's dress is pretty. Or is it a shirt and skirt? Woz's outfit is awful, as usual. Those Adidas designers must be blind.

I like Ana and Serena's outfits as they flatter their bodies. I will be interested to see how Serena's day outfit looks on her.

Ana and Serena have attractive outfits on and, as many have indicated, Caro and Vika don't.

Virgil Cane is the name ...

Serena dress is tops, then Ana's. Jelena's dress just looks like your typical Jelena dress.

I like Venus' dress the best Cool

What the hell was Caroline thinking?? It's a patchwork of hankies with a black uterus Big Smile

Vika's waistband is too damn high and the skirt is too damn long. Nike should be sued, lol.

I was surprised Nike kept Petra. I thought they only invested in winners Wink.

It's that same grey skirt everyone else has been wearing. LiNa is wearing a very short one too. Nike must do better!!

I like Petra's outfit. I think a two-part outfit looks more athletic, and sleeves make it look more elegant.

Serena obviously wins it in this batch, but I think Venus gets the nod for most originality. Ana's is the typical Addidas garb. Same for Petra's typical Nike gear. Caro and Vika are a tie for the worst slam outfit this year.

RE: US Open outfits: best and worst!
I love Serena's she keeps using that design but it fits her body type. JJ looks really classic and beautiful. After her huge slump im surprised she still gets choice outfits designed for her. Anna looks good if not a bit boring. I think Caro looks great actually. Because I work in fashion I know what Venus is going for with the floral. It doesn't work. It should not have been an all over floral print it should have been spots of floral but mostly black. Still I commend Venus for trying something new. Vika's is just all kinds of wrong. I haven't loved anything of hers since her neon at the 2012 AO. She really needs to be given better priority in this design process.

I am kind of missing the fashion element here. A few years ago Nike an Adidas were trying to move more in a fashion design direction rather than pure sports design. I loved the way Serena, Venus, and Maria were taking chances with outfits that looked half sports half fashion. I don't see that here.

SK,
Are you referring to Vika's short outfit from last year? I didn't like that at all. She looked like she was going to the gym.

Can someone post a picture of Madison Keys (Maria's original outfit)? I liked it, but it was getting panned on other sites.

Hampton

I say Hampton's dress is worse that Keys!

I like Vesnina's outfit but can't find a picture that shows the whole thing.

I also like Angie's

Angie's outfit is Ana's outfit. The standard Addidas garb.
