We can't tell if this is a case of camera angles, depth perception or the fact that Maria Sharapova is an exceptionally tall woman, but in this photo her black gold mini looks like it's intended for a child.
In fairness to the tennis star, this Jay Ahr creation does feel like a tennis dress gone very, very sexy. The flared skirt is similar to ones we've see this fashion lover rock on the court, and the structured top has a very athletic feel, but the real vibe we get is baby in a skirt-attached bathing suit!
Length (or lack thereof) aside, that's the real issue with this ensemble. It's too girly on the bottom for the hot, hot heat on top. It's like the blonde beauty is dressing out of two sides of her brain. One the international sex symbol for the stuffiest of sports and the other a sweet little dress lover who wanted to wear a gold party dress for her big day.
Their forces combined make Maria look like a very confused giant, albeit a gorgeous one.
