the french open

baronessa,

the french open finals are on this weekend and while i know you certainly have no time to watch a match, i thought you might like to have a peek at tennis fashion that has been sported at Roland Garros.

some good looks with a sampling below. how about agassi's pink spandex under acid wash shorts? nice.

have a lovely weekend + hope the wee ones are feeling better.

French tennis legends Suzanne Lenglen and Rene Lacoste, who won a combined six French Championships singles titles, model traditional tennis attire in the 1920s.
Only one could win the men's singles title at the 1978 French Open, but both Bjorn Borg (left) and Guillermo Vilas earned top honors for their flowing locks.

Fashion rebel Andre Agassi paired jean shorts with fuchsia spandex, a loud shirt and a funky headband at the 1991 French Open. Fans got to see a lot of his style that year, even his soul patch that extended to his navel, as he advanced to the finals at Roland Garros.
