If there was anyone in the world who deserved to don a sharp tuxedo, drink down a tall glass of Moët & Chandon, and party into the wee hours of the night, it was Andy Murray.
After sweating out the past two weeks in a surplus of white mesh, with the weight of a country on his shoulders, Murray finally ended the 77-year men’s championship drought at the old English tournament, and a celebration of epic proportions at the Champions’ Ball was in order. He was joined by longtime girlfriend Kim Sears, who spent the tournament filling the Kate Middleton void and earning her sartorial stripes. The couple looked a perfect pair in Burberry, he in a one-button tuxedo and she in a black embellished crepe gown (which can be yours for a cool £3,495.00.)
Women’s champion Marion Bartoli, showed off her robust curves in a shiny black dress and tall Christian Louboutin ankle boots proving that she stacks up to Maria Sharapova both on the Wimbledon court and on the red carpet, despite John Inverdale’s harsh commentary on Saturday, in which he said she was not “a looker” compared to last year’s Russian winner. In response, Bartoli invited the journalist to stand by his word after she put on her Sunday best last night:
“I invite this journalist to come and see me this evening in ball gown and heels, and in my opinion he could change his mind. I am not blonde, yes. Have I dreamt about having a model contract? No. But have I dreamed about winning Wimbledon? Absolutely.”
Proving that she just not only a looker, but a class act, she definitely made Inverdale eat his words. View all the champions’ and their ball looks below, and if you’re going through Wimbledon withdrawal, we’ve got plenty of coverage to pull you through:
