A long dainty yellow dress, a beautiful slim body line. She is 188cm tall and has experience as a model, and when she appeared, sighs of joy leaked out from the people who were there.
On September 13, Maria Sharapova (34), the former world number one in women’s tennis who retired in February last year, visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. She attended the Met Gala, one of the world’s largest fashion events, held at the museum.
Her long dress gown with impressive pleated sleeves that covered her shoulders and arms and her accessories were gorgeous. When Sharapova posted the image on her Instagram with the hashtag #MetGala2021, she received rave reviews from around the world.
“You look amazing off the court!
“Maria is a goddess.
“Maria is a goddess.” “She just gets more radiant every year.”
The identity of the man who was always near her
During the event, there was always a man near Sharapova. He was wearing a white jacket and bow tie. He was her fiancé, Alexander Gilkes, 42, a wealthy man.
“Mr. Gilkes is more than just a rich man. He has deep ties with the Royal Family. He is a graduate of Eton College, one of the most prestigious schools in the country, and is a friend of Princes William and Henry, who graduated from the college. Princess Eugenie worked at the online auction house Paddle8, which she co-founded in 2011 and which has recorded sales of over 14.3 billion yen.
She and Princess Beatrice attended his wedding to his ex-wife, fashion designer Misha Nonoo. Mr. Gilkes’ brother, Charlie, used to be in a relationship with Princess Catherine’s sister, Pippa Middleton,” said a national newspaper reporter who has worked in the UK.
Sharapova and her partner, Gilkes, are likely to be active in the business world in the future. Mr. Gilkes co-founded a new company called “Squared Circles”. Sharapova’s name is also on the board of advisors.
Even though she is retired, the “Russian Fairy” Sharapova is still attracting attention from all over the world. Her facial expression shows her confidence and her fulfilling life with her fiancé.
