Just when the 2014 Roland Garros trophy rose her to the No.2 of the all-time tennis prize money list, Maria Sharapova has added another venture to her lucrative endorsements, thus further ensuring her top spot in Forbes magazine’s list of highest paid female athlete, the position she has held for a record nine years. The five-time Grand Slam champion uses Supergoop! sun protection, drinks Evian water, talks over a Samsung phone, TAG Heuer tells her what time it is, her sugar cravings are satisfied by Sugarpova, Porsche is her drive of choice, Nike is there to make tennis victories more comfortable, while Avon will now ensure that every moment of her life smells good.
Maria will join the Avon fragrance family as the face of Avon Luck, two new sparklingly luxurious fragrances for men and women.
Masha said of the partnership:
I always say the harder you work, the luckier you are because you strive for bigger goals. I love being able to partner with a company like Avon that empowers women around the world to accomplish their dreams.
Patricia Perez-Ayala, Avon Chief Marketing Officer, explained:
When we created Avon Luck, we wanted to capture the intoxicating charisma of someone who creates her own luck in life. As one of the top ranked tennis players worldwide, and a sophisticated natural beauty, Maria perfectly captures this sense of energy and possibility. She’s the ideal spokesperson for a fragrance that exudes happiness and a feeling of being on top of the world.
