Maria Sharapova Releases Sugarpova Down Under

Maria Sharapova is one of those rare athletes who transcend her sport. Her personality, business sense, passion for fashion and, yes, good looks have helped make her one of the most recognisable names in sport today. Despite winning a career Grand Slam and having multiple business ventures, including a design gig with Cole Haan, Maria still felt she wanted to do something more. She wanted something that was entirely her own. Hence, Sugarpova was born, celebrating Maria's sweet tooth and love of candy. Far from a girl who adheres to a strict gluten-free, sugar-free diet, Maria admits she always wants something sweet when she gets off the court and felt the world was lacking quality gummy candy. Today she brought the twelve flavours of Sugarpova to Australia, and I was lucky enough to attend the launch.

Maria lived up to her reputation as a fashion icon, and despite the sweltering heat, she didn't have a hair out of place. Maria wore David Korma dress which was just as funky and fun as her candy line, the bright orange perfectly suiting the burning Aussie sun. 

I was a particularly big fan of her Jimmy Choo shoes and her beautiful updo. Her earring were also very quirky and perfectly complimented her outfit. 

Maria spoke to media before signing bags of Sugarpova with fans. She reassured reporters that her collarbone injury has healed nicely and she is feeling confident going into the Open, (and probably relieved to avoid Serena until the final, not that she'd admit it!).

As for Sugarpova itself, I have tried seven of the twelve flavours and am crazy about it. Sugarpova will make the perfect sugar hit for all those watching the Australian Open this month and even the biggest savoury over sweet fanatics are bound to find a flavour they like. 

My personal favourite is Quirky. What's yours?
