Wearing: An Adidas Edge line white top and light lavender skirt, as well as a limited edition Barricade V Summer Slam shoe. The idea for the shoe came directly from Ivanovic, who wanted a more feminine version, so Adidas created a pearlized image of her that stretches across the top. Sold exclusively at the Adidas Sport Performance Store at 610 Broadway in New York and on shopadidas.com, the dress sells for $65 and the shoe sells for $120.
“It’s a white top with a violet skirt, and there’s a cutaway violet portion on the shirt, and also some orange on both pieces,” Ivanovic said. “It’s a nice combination.”
