NEW YORK, NY, USA - World No.2 Maria Sharapova stepped away from the courts this week, sitting front row for shows of Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang, Rodarte and Oscar de la Renta at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

Sharapova, who recently made her sixth Grand Slam final at the Australian Open, sat front row for all of the aforementioned shows, with Anna Wintour - Editor in Chief of Vogue - by her side. Sharapova wore clothes by Marc Jacobs, Carven and Jason Wu, as well as a Tag Heuer watch and Cole Haan shoes.

"It's exciting to be a part of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, from identifying upcoming trends to seeing the collections in person," Sharapova said from the event. "What I'm seeing down the runway provides inspiration for when I'm designing my own collections, be it for on the court or off the court."

This year marks the second season of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, where designers from around the globe come to present their upcoming fall/winter 2012 collections. It is held at the Lincoln Center in New York City.

Sharapova, the most marketable female athlete in the world, is a former World No.1 with three Grand Slam titles to her name, winning Wimbledon in 2004, the US Open in 2006 and the Australian Open in 2008. She is now No.2.
