Maria Sharapova shines at Vanity Fair Oscar Party, “steals” an Oscar, roots for Jennifer Lawrence

No stranger to the glitzy Hollywood scene, Maria Sharapova graced the Vanity Fair Oscar After Party with her glowing presence following Sunday night’s Academy Awards.

In her arrival interview, Sharapova talked about her love of Jennifer Lawrence, whether she gets starstruck and speaks to the glamour of attending the Oscars.

On her thoughts about Oscar night: “It’s certainly the most glamorous. It’s nice to be able to mingle with also some athletes — I’ve seen a few already. To be able to watch the Oscars and get ready for a glamorous event is always fun for me. It’s very unusual to be part of something like this.”

On who she was rooting for: “I personally love Jennifer Lawrence. I think she’s had such a great attitude. She’s an amazing actress, but so young and fresh and youthful. Doesn’t take everything so seriously. I love that type of attitude in an actress. I’m happy to see her win.”

On whether she gets starstruck: “It’s nice to see people being celebrated for what they do. Obviously, tonight is Oscar night so it’s nice to be able to walk by an Oscar nominee or an Oscar winner. It’s such a different business to what I am usually a part of. But I think we all know how hard it takes to get to a certain position in our careers.”

She looked stunning in a contemporary, floor-length silhouette by Amanda Wakeley which emphasized her athletic physique with relaxed and flowing tailoring and a deep-cut back. Shoes were Manolo Blahniks and the edgy yet chic clutch was an Alexander McQueen accessory. Earrings also by Isharaya and matching golden cuffs by Katherine Sultan.

Her makeup and hair were understated with just the right balance of youth and elegance. Seems Maria can do no wrong!

Actually, I take that back. Here’s the Alexander McQueen fail (sorry!) she wore at last year’s Vanity Fair Oscar After Party. Hey, at least she’s experimenting and learning from her mistakes! You can’t be a fashion icon without taking some risks!

And as a BONUS (because really, who doesn’t like freebies?!), a very clever fan photoshopped Maria Sharapova holding her very own Oscar. Because, why not? After practicing her trophy-hoisting pose by winning 4 Slams, casually hoisting an Oscar suits her quite well.

Maria Sharapova drop dead gorgeous for launch of Sugarpova

What does Maria Sharapova, the top-paid female athlete for eight years running, do in her spare time when not winning Slams or designing shoes? She launches her own premium candy line “Surgarpova”, of course!

Sharapova made the rounds all day in New York City, first stopping at Henri Bendel’s on Fifth Avenue, bringing a little sweet tooth to the upscale specialty store predominantly known for fashion accessories, cosmetics and fragrances.

The brand name “Sugarpova” spontaneously clicked for Sharapova’s first self-made product and features 12 varieties of candies ranging from tennis gumballs to gummy high heels in mouth-watering flavors and most are gluten free (something that Novak Djokovic would surely approve of!).

Can’t make it to New York to buy some Sugarpova sweets but hooked on all things Sharapova? Well, you’re in luck as you can purchase the pouches online through Sugarpova.com. With names like “Sporty” and “Flirty,” the sweets sound more Spice Girls-themed than athlete-inspired, but the tennis gumballs may make you look twice.

Sharapova, likewise looked just as delicious in a custom David Koma dress with glittering silver collar, and paired it with bright blue vintage Sergio Rossi pumps.

She then popped by her other product carrier, It’Sugar, looking casual in a Vanessa Bruno blouse, floral print Etro mini skirt, chocolate-colored Cole Haan pumps, and jewelry from Sethi Couture and Le Vian.

She capped off her day by stopping by “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” in a stunning and revealing sheer panel black dress and strappy sandals, even playing a round of Root Beer Pong.

Needless to say, Sharapova just became a life-size version of a Sugarpova gummy “Drop Dead Gorgeous”…
