Aloha From Doha

Posted by gauloises1 on October 25, 2009

Doha’s in Hawaii, right? Just kidding. Anyway, it’s nearly time for the Year End Championships in Doha, and you know what that means … glammed-up photoshoots!

wta year end championships doha

Could Venus look less thrilled?

dinara safina wta doha

Ladies and gentleman, your real fake real current no. 1.

serena williams venus williams doha

Probably not a coincidence Serena and Venus got the best/most badass outfits.

caroline wozniacki wta doha

I reluctantly love this dress.

elena dementieva wta doha

This looks like a nightdress you’d be killed by Dracula in. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, mind you.

jelena jankovic wta doha

I actually love JJ. As usual.

svetlana kuznetsova wta doha

Sveta in a dress. Always a triple-take moment.

victoria azarenka wta doha

Um. I like her hair.

    They all look gorgeous. JJ especially.

    JJ’s dress is amazing. But really, who thought that hairstyle/makeup on Dinara was a good idea?

    Probably Dinara, thinking about it.

    it’s the shiny face that’s bad mostly.

    Vika is stunning, much prettier than Wozniacki, I feel.

  4. gauloises1 said

    I completely agree. She has such an interesting face. And amazing hair. And dimples.

    Dina looks pretty, so much older than usual I feel. I concur with you two on JJ, she looks gorgeous! Her dress is lovely.

    I like Venus’s outfit, really classy. I like how Serena is the only one not in a dress.

    And LOL on Demmy.

    I actually think they all look pretty good here…I mean, not PERFECT by any means, but nobody is a complete disaster!

    um, why aren’t you guys commenting on the “best/most badass outfits”? haha that outfit on Venus makes Serena look like a fashion high priestess. which is highly suspect to say the least.

    Lena and Vika= purrrttyy. Vika’s hair trumps them all.

    a bit meh on Woz. thought she’d blow them out of the water with youth *and* looks, but managed not to…

    all this from a decidedly fashion impaired observer who cannot for the life of her work a blow drier or put mascara on properly. take seriously at our own peril. 🙂

      You may have noticed (you obviously have) that commenting on fashion isn’t my strong suit, Mina 🙂

      But I like Venus’ dress/hair/little cardigan. What can I say, I’d love to wear that …

      Wozniacki bland? What else is new?

  8. mina said

    of course, i should’ve also included lacking typing skillz. that’s ‘your’ not ‘our’

    My observations on Wozniaki: I think she looks SO much more attractive when she’s going with a natural look. Although, my husband finds her incredibly attractive, and I still haven’t quite figured out what the appeal is…we obviously have different taste in women. Not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing… 😉

    I love the way both JJ and Elena look, I’d like Dinara if her face didn’t look like I could see reflections in it, and Vika’s hair looks great (completely not into the bow), I still am doing double-takes at Sveta in a dress, and I’m still trying to figure out what Serena is wearing. I haven’t quite decided what I think about Venus’ dress — but regardless of my feelings to it, I feel like Venus could pull off wearing a trash bag, and it would work.

    Demmy looks a bit Dominatrixy in weird way…you’ve been a very very naughty boy and I am going to have to insert this in your rectum

  11. naughty T....hey now hey now my Wilfy's back. said

    dinara seems to have based her makeup on WitchyPoo

  12. naughty T....hey now hey now my Wilfy's back. said

    I also like that in the group shot everyone has given JJ a lot of space to work her Serbian catalogue modelling moves

  13. sonya said

    hopefully this bodes well for Vika and JJ. And yeah still don’t get what all the fuss is about re Woz. Serena just looks weird lol.

  14. imtotallyrad said

    ok so none of them really know how to pose so well
    but venus’ dress is cuuuute! and coming from a self confessed JJ hater…i must admit she looks pretty here XP

  15. Mango said

    JJ owns this shoot. I feel bad for Caro in her picture. It appears as though a burst of wind came through as her picture was being taken, which makes her dress look like it’s an awkward length.

    Pretty much everyone in the White Group got a burst of wind, while the members of the Maroon Group didn’t.

  16. lauren said

    Ew, Vika. How much more smug could she look? She’s a seriously plain girl mistaken for a pretty one because she has Barbie hair.

    Dinara’s makeup is a fright, but her dress I rather like. It’s a nice relief from all the white satin nighties on offer.

  17. mrdarnley said

    everybody looks good but was there a sale on white dresses somewhere? JJ looks amazing. She scrubs up well. Do you think the Williams sisters intentionally went for a different style though?

  18. Jackobeanz said

    hmmm..Vika is enjoyable….her hair is so awesome…..JJ…well I of course wud love it….and I love how she totes is top modelling everyone in the group shot!!! :mrgreen:
    Caro prob has my fave dress……..but i unno it just dont fit with her….
    Why do russians that arent Maria/Bepa/Makiri fail nearly everytime at dresses??

  19. irefusetotellyou said

    I’m so excited by the return of the “reply” option.

    Also, I think Sveta looks the best, actually. But what’s up with Venus’ pseudo-naughty maid outfit? Hm.
