Designed for ultimate comfort and optimum performance on the court the adidas by Stella McCartney Barricade dress incorporates laser cuts and inserts along the arm holes and sides, assisting in the player’s breathability throughout the game.

Caroline Wozniacki comments: “My year couldn’t have started better – I’ve won my first Grand Slam and I’ve been training hard to keep up that momentum. I know what it takes to win a Grand Slam and I’m prepared to bring that again to Paris. The adidas by Stella McCartney little black dress is inspired by a timeless design, one I love and feel confident wearing. I look forward to hitting the courts of Roland Garros and bringing my game.”
