Novak Djokovic proves that there’s no use for sulking following a Wimbledon loss, and that sponsoring a gala dinner, inviting a slew of A-list cronies, and letting the champagne flow is a better way to go. And while Andy Murray was certainly the man of the hour at the Champions’ Ball the night before, Djokovic was looking sharp as ever in a black tuxedo, with his gorgeous girlfriend Jelena Ristic on his arm. The Serbian beauty happened to make a major statement in the Oscar de la Renta Spring 2013 gown that’s been inspiring us to show our stripes (and chevron).
JustFab’s latest recruit Kate Hudson made us miraculously reconsider the high-low hemline in a brown Elie Saab Spring 2013 embellished chiffon dress, which she accessorized with spiked Christian Louboutin accoutrements. The star’s uber-blonde mom Goldie Hawn, who is still an absolute fox, was also in attendance. She wore a sexy white silk gown with a subtle gold chain print, along with her signature waves and summer glow. We think her look gives credence to Michael Kors’ belief that fashion rules have relaxed for older women. Naomi Campbell sported a black ruffled column gown by Azzedine Alaia, proving that she stands above the rest, even in monochrome.
As one would expect for any Wimbledon-related fête, the royals were on hand. Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice, who each donned black, attended with their mother Sarah, the Duchess of York. Since the two sisters opted for such yawn-worthy LBDs, it was Eugenie’s shiny coif with her new blunt bangs that had the internet abuzz.
Despite the black tie attire, many of the celebrity attendees kicked off their heels and dress shoes for a little bit of recreational tennis, which added even more fun to the party. View all the looks below, and if you’ve still got Wimbledon fever, see all the chic attendees from the Champions’ ball.
