Cat-Walking for K-Swiss
Wednesday night, Insider caught up with Vera Zvonareva at the K-Swiss spring 10 launch party in Manhattan, where the U.S. Open hopeful was walking the catwalk in her sponsor brand’s latest styles. Zvonareva told Insider it was her first go at the catwalk, but that the experience left her with a taste for Fashion — convenient, then, that New York Fashion Week is coming up: “Now that I did my first runway, maybe I’ll check it out,” she laughed. But for now, she said, the focus is on the upcoming tennis tournament. “You’re always [nervous],” she said, “but I’m excited to get on the court.” Longtime K-Swiss spokesmodel Anna Kournikova won’t be making the scene in Queens, but she also took to the catwalk at the event, after appearing earlier in the evening in jaw-dropping YSL stilettos. She told Insider that, vertiginous height aside, she might as well be wearing flats. “They’re very comfortable. I am all for comfort,” she said. “I will never sacrifice comfort for sexiness.” Lucky girl.
