PHOTOS: This Olympian’s Off-Duty Look Is Red Carpet Magic
Well, we were all about crop tops this summer, but now that we’ve seen an Olympian Sanya Richards-Ross sporting the style, we’re a little bit hesitant to let our own “abs” see the light of day.
Last night, at the premiere for her new reality series Sanya’s Glam & Gold, the track star hit the red carpet in a mixed print crop top and skirt ensemble that looked as if it was hot off a Christopher Kane runway. Adding to the on-trend look was a pair of knee-high gladiator sandals — the kind that you can only pull off if you’ve been spent hours on end doing crossover lunges. Some might be surprised to see such a bold look from an athlete, but we know vibrant style is on the rise for jocks, from eye-catching Olympic nail art to Wimbledon’s best dressed.
Also on hand was Richards-Ross’ pal Estelle, who went for an equally statement-making look in a turquoise, leopard-print bodycon number, which doesn’t look nearly as crazy as it sounds. While we loved the figure-accentuating dress, we think it would have been more striking had Estelle been sporting her former cropped do’. Girl, if we could pull that hair off, we’d never let it grow.
