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.
