NEW YORK — Fashion and women’s sports have long had an uneasy relationship, but now the two forces are gaining a newfound respect for each other.
The growing tie between fashion and sports was evident in a variety of ways at Monday night’s Women’s Sports Foundation awards dinner at the Waldorf-Astoria. Snowboarder Kelly Clark traded in her wool beanie and oversized Burton jacket in favor of a new Prada strapless dress, a Vera Wang-clad Peggy Fleming critiqued skaters’ on-ice attire and a sleek Nadia Comaneci discussed her endorsement deal with a melba toast company.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
