With the U.S. Open in full swing, it’s no surprise that this week’s contenders for Style Superstar were found at Flushing Meadows wearing tennis-appropriate whites—even if they were both wielding microphones instead of rackets! These two pretty performers graced the courts with their vocal talents before the competition kicked off, and both brought their fashion A-game for the occasion. But when it comes to Style Superstardom, it’s like “Highlander”: THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE. Who aced it?
Jordin Sparks, y’all. The songstress wore a body-hugging Bebe dress in pretty white eyelet for her opening night performance of the National Anthem, with three-quarter-length sleeves that made it a perfect late-summer transition piece. Needless to say, there are, er, two obvious reasons why this dress was a great pick for the voluptuous star—but with nude peep-toe heels and understated jewelry, her classic style is game, set, match for Style Superstar.
Meanwhile, the crowd at Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day was also treated to a peek at a pop star: Carly Rae Jepsen kicked things off with a performance of “Call Me Maybe,” donning an eyelet tennis dress, a colorful headband and high-top white Chucks for the occasion. But as adorable as she looked, we’ve gotta fault her for the sake of her own safety… because in an outfit like that, it’s only a matter of time before one of the athletes mistakes her for a competitor and starts winging 90 mile-per-hour balls at her head.
