Girls, Giggles & Garters

Posted by gauloises1 on February 10, 2010

So Ana Ivanovic is featured in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition (a thing that I, incidentally, have some problems getting my head around) and looks, well, like a very, very gorgeous woman.

It’s unfortunate timing, coming so soon after her disastrous Fed Cup weekend, but when coupled with her lifetime Adidas deal hitting the headlines, it’s a powerful statement of, well, enduring marketability. So there that is.

Frankly, I’m more concerned with the somewhat ’50s vibe of the shoot. It’s all nudges and permissiveness; I feel like there should be a beach ball in there somewhere. I actually feel like FHM did a better job, artistically. And I’m not going to lie, that sentence scares me.

Brooklyn Decker, incidentally, graces the cover.
