"I adore dressing up — certainly a guilty pleasure for me! I love vintage stores. My personal style is simple and easy and Audrey Hepburn is my all-time style icon. She was utterly gorgeous but effortlessly elegant at the same time. She was a true icon," she told Daily Mail website in an interview on Monday.
The Russian glamour girl, who recently won the French Open and has her sights firmly on winning the Wimbledon title which she first clinched at 17, is also open about starting a family.
Sharapova is currently dating Bulgarian tennis ace Grigor Dimitrov. "I would like to play tennis for as long as I enjoy playing, but family is really important for me so we'll see," she said.
Rest is crucial
Away from the court, Sharapova tries to get as much rest as possible to unwind. "Rest is very important for me and this can simply be quiet time at home, but I love taking a couple of friends and going to dinner. Something indulgent — even if you have to spend a bit more money than you would normally — really helps relieve stress," said the Russian.
Apart from running her Sugarpova candy line and being the brand ambassador for some top brands, Sharapova has teamed up with musicians Rizzle Kicks to star in their latest video.
Their new track video 'Tell Her' has the singers vying for Sharapova's attention. "It was a fun and exciting, especially being in a music video and being able to have fun."
