Flare magazine's spotlight on the Australian Open's teenage darling, Eugenie Bouchard, includes a photo spread in multiple outfits and settings. Bouchard remarks about the shoot that she hasn't done anything terribly "fashion-y" before. Here's a look behind the scenes, in which the Canadian looks elegant and comfy-chic:
The accompanying article includes this gem of a sentence: "Bouchard is one of three players on the tour who wear the coveted sexy-tech Maria Sharapova–designed Nike line, and she admits to being a burgeoning clotheshorse on the sidelines."
It seems she's positioning herself quite well at relatively the same young age that Maria Sharapova did, while staying grounded and entirely herself about it. Of course, her results are peaking a bit later. What do you think of the Aussie Open semifinalist's rise—will it continue its current arc, both on and off the court?
