Photos: Indian Wells fashion hits and misses

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. -- The colors on the court have been as bright as the desert sun over the last two weeks as a number of players have debuted their new spring kits at the BNP Paribas Open.

The most striking thing about the color schemes is just how different they look in person as opposed to on television or in photographs. The neon colors sported by the likes of Roger Federer and Jelena Jankovic pop really nicely on court, while the robin's egg color scheme Nike has employed is a constant reminder that Easter is right around the corner.

Here's the best and worst of what we've seen at Indian Wells.

Hits

Maria Sharapova

Roger Federer

Jelena Jankovic

Eugenie Bouchard

Misses

Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal: This might have worked if the orange were brighter, but instead, it looked like a washed-out salmon orange. Rafa as a piece of sushi just isn't a good look. (Stephen Dunn/Getty Images)


Camila Giorgi

Aga Radwanska

Agnieszka Radwanska: It's subtle, but Lotto's new dress has a bubble skirt that makes the dress look very heavy. It actually looks like it's weighing Radwanska down. (Joe Klamar/AFP/Getty Images)
