Maria Sharapova Wearing Eiffel Tower-Themed Dress for French Open

Maria Sharapova beat Mirjana Lucic in her first-round match at the French Open Tuesday 6-3, 6-0. Sharapova is seeded seventh in the tournament and she has to be considered one of the favorites after winning the clay court tune-up in Italy. But much like Venus Williams who’s drawn attention for wearing a lingerie-themed dress and 1920s flapper-style dress on the court, Sharapova is turning some heads for her Eiffel Tower-themed dress at Roland Garros. Check out the way her stripes criss cross around her torso, making it look similar to France’s most well-known landmark:

It’s subtle and hard to notice, but it’s pretty cool. And really, if I didn’t know that’s what the dress was supposed to reflect, I would have had no idea. At least it’s somewhat toned down compared to Venus Williams’ outfit when she made us all wonder if she was wearing underwear.
