All Fashion Police units to IW please

It’s IW time, bitches!!!

Last night saw the BNP Paribas Open Player’s Party. Here are some of our fave examples of the “fashion” on show.

Oh, Rafa. Your horrific fashion sense is utterly endearing

If any other player wore this, I’d give them shit for being mumsy. But I love Kim, and she really is a Mama. So, work it!

The Joe Six Pack of the ATP. He’s just a normal dude!

Next time someone calls Muzz “The Ginge Hotness”, I’m having them sectioned.

I’m a JJkad. So, I’ll just say this isn’t one of her worst efforts.  But seriously, WTF?

Ana and Sorana. I think both look beautiful. Ivanovic in particular looks gorgeous.

I am trying *so* hard not to say something mean (and truthful) about this. So, yeah. Just no.

LMAO. Oh Dani. I had an outfit just like this about 6 years ago. When I was 16 and didn’t know any better.

So, HSMers, who did YOU think was the Best/Worst dressed?

Hit for Haiti

Tennis stars are coming together to raise money for those affected by the devastating earthquake in Haiti. It’s a truly worthy cause, and tickets will cost just $10, all of which will go directly towards helping victims.

Nole, Rafa, RAndy, Kimmy, ReRe and Slammin Sammy will take part in the special mixed-doubles event, along with Federer.

It was, in fact, Roger who organised the event. Credit where it’s due, he has a great track record when it comes to charitable causes. Good for you, Federer, a most admirable idea.

Kudos to all the players involved. You are a credit to your sport!
