Eight most successful women of the 2017 tennis season glammed up for the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global draw ceremony held on Friday at the Marina Bay Sands. Our photographer Jimmie48 was right there, giving us a closer look at the fashion choices the WTA stars made for the purple red carpet.
World No.1 Simona Halep, the Red Group leader, shared a message with her simple V-neck black dress, as the word “equality” was stitched in the see-through hem.
Earlier in the day, the Romanian was awarded a red Porshe 911 Carrera GTS for winning the Porsche Race to Singapore.
Joining Halep in the Red Group are Elina Svitolina, Caroline Wozniacki and Caroline Garcia.
The WTA Finals debutante Elina Svitolina rocked a blue side-slit halter-neck dress designed and made by her mom.
Caroline Wozniacki, whose best result at the tournament was the final in 2010, attended the gala in a bodysuit consisting of a white sleeveless V-neck top and red pants accessorized with a black bow in place of a belt.
Caroline Garcia, who arrived in Singapore on a high of her recent Wuhan and Beijing titles, expressed her happiness and confidence by wearing a pure red strappy dress.
Topping the White Group is Garbine Muguruza, followed by Karolina Pliskova, Venus Williams and Jelena Ostapenko.
The WTA Player of the Year Garbine Muguruza, who claimed her second Grand Slam title at Wimbledon this year, showed some proper posing skills at the red-carpet event, with her hair and make-up game better than ever.
Karolina Pliskova, the player opening this year’s WTA Finals action with her Sunday’s match against Venus Williams, opted for dramatic roses on a black background and long wavy hairstyle.
Exuding confidence, the 2008 WTA Finals champion Venus Williams rocked a tight studded black mini dress and peep-toe shoes.
Jelena Ostapenko, the Most Improved WTA Player of the Year with her maiden tour-level singles title coming at Roland Garros, wore a red chest-ruffle dress and classic black elegant heels.
Following Sunday’s opening ceremony, the tournament kicks off with the White Group round-robin play, while the Red Group players will start their campaigns on Monday.
