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.
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 old men’s championship drought at the old English tournament and a celebration of epic proportions at the Champions’ Ball was in order. Joining his longtime girlfriend Kim Sears, who spent the tournament filling the country’s Kate Middleton void and earned her British sartorial stripes, the couple looked a perfect pair in Burberry, he in one-button tuxedo and she in a black embellished crepe gown (which can be yours for a cool £3,495.00.)
Yesterday Pippa watched the semifinals in a gorgeous Temperley dress, and stole the show.
Wimbledon is a sporty event, but it’s also a fashion-y event where one can spot Anna Wintour in the stands and watch athletes run around in lots of expensive things. So naturally we must discuss five-time title winner Serena Williams‘ championship dress.
Brits have been going mad for Wimbledon this week, and fancy people like Anna Wintour, the Middleton sisters, and the Beckhams are no exception. Alas, their countryman Andy Murray was defeated by Swiss champion Roger Federer in today’s Men’s Singles final, but that doesn’t mean we can’t keep on playing our favorite spectator sport: style watch!
Pippa Middleton has been laying low since her fake gun incident back in April, but Kate‘s sister finally stepped out to watch tennis at Wimbledon today.
Whether its Federer’s unexpected friendship with Anna Wintour, Nadal’s $525,000 accessory, or Venus Williams‘ on and off-court clothing choices, tennis stars are indisputably some of the most fashion-forward athletes out there. With Wimbledon’s qualifying round this week, we thought we’d call some attention to the other style mavens on the court: the ball girls and boys.
Venus Williams looked pretty good on the grass at Wimbledon yesterday. But it’s our bet that she would have looked better if she’d let someone else design her dress.
Ah, Wimbledon. Fresh-cut grass. Crisp white clothing. Expensive product placement. What more could you ask for on an English summer’s day? Apparently, a lot more. Because in England, designers and fashion houses are spending millions of British Pounds Sterling — not American dollars — to dress the tournament’s female players while they tear up the sod.
