Sitting next to Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour at some of the hottest runway shows is a pretty big deal. NBA baller Russell Westbrook, and Tennis star Maria Sharapova both had the opportunity to experience every fashion-lovers’ dream date. Both athletes were spied seated next to Anna at separate shows for day 2 of New York Fashion Week. It’s great to see more athletes are getting the front-row treatment, especially NBA players, first it was Ama’re in 2011, then Dwyane Wade in 2012. Let the trend continue to progress.
Russell Westbrook displayed his eclectic sense of style as he sat next to Anna at Rag & Bone spring 2014 show. Russell wore a $445 Dries Van Noten coated denim vest he layered over a patterned dress shirt. Russ completed his look with solid gray trousers, high-top sneakers and a fedora hat.
Tennis star Maria Sharapova was seated next to Anna for Jason Wu spring 2014 show. Maria was clothed in an elegant black lace-top with a contrast white collar, coordinated with a black skirt, and shoes.
