French Open 2013: Best of the Worst - UnGlam Top 5 - Mixed

These looks failed to inspire during the 2013 Roland Garros tournament.


1. Gael Monfils - Complete Shank

Gael - this shirt is hideous. I don't even know why, because I like the colors and stripes - but just terrible. Quel horreur!




2. Svetlana Kuznetsova - Miss-hit

I can't fathom which company would think that the French would accept tie dye. What were they thinking?



3. Sloane Stephens - Double Fault
Neon green/yellow works well on blue hardcourts but it was jarring to see the color against the terre battue. Also, the outfit seemed way too short for Sloane.



4. Maria Sharapova - Unforced Error

Not a fan of the 90s baby doll/slip dress look that Maria's been trying to rock. The little triangle detail on the straps also seem antiquated. But hey - Sugarpova's laughing and shrieking her way to the bank.



5. Victoria Azarkena - Bad Toss

I usually like Vika's understated and un-complicated Nike kits but this one didn't work for me. I get that she's in the same color palette as Serena - but Vika just ends up looking washed out and dull against the clay.

US Open 2018: Welcome Back & New Logo

Well...it's been 2 years hasn't it. That's what heading to grad school will do to a person. Sometimes the axiom, 'the more things change, the more they stay the same,' rings true. But sometimes, as with the case of the US Open's new logo, one steps away, and comes to find that things have gone completely awry.



Is this Arial font? Are these letters lower case? Really, in this political climate, lower case US? Is lower case an affront to becoming great again?

Also, is this logo actually in Arial Italics?

According to the USTA, "the logo created by renowned graphic design firm Chermayeff & Geismar & Haviv, is a streamlined and modernized version of the tournament’s iconic flaming ball logo, which was first introduced in 1997."

The old logo had a solid 20-year run. This logo probably won't make it this long because it lacks pizzazz and lacks the distinction the previous logo offered. 



And here's a look at an earlier version of the US Ope…

Here are the ladies looks that aced the 2015 Australian Open

Across the board, the tournament featured a number of ladies in neon and electric colored designs which boldly contrasted with Melbourne's blue hard courts. 


2015 Australian Open Loves: 
1.Maria Sharapova 












Maria, the 2015 Australian Open Ladies Finalist, dazzled in red down under. Glad to see she's moved past her tunic phase. 
2. Madison Brengle





















Madison rocked Nike's raspberry outlier look all the way to the Quarter-Finals. 
3. Angelique Kerber







Angelique had a short stay in Melbourne, but her navy/orange Adidas kit impressed during her unexpected first-round loss. 
4. Aga Radwanska



Lotto seems to be succesfully following the "if it ain't broke" line of design with Aga. 
5. Martina Hingis
