Here we go again. The lady ballers of the WTA tour attended the annual pre-Wimbledon party at the Kensington Rooftop Gardens in London last night with the usual mixed results (read: HOT, NOT AND WTF WERE THEY THINKING?!). Ahem.
Maria Sharapova looked incredibly chic in her red Alexander McQueen dress. The cut-outs on the shoulders are fucking brilliant. But what really pulled the whole look together were the stunning accessories including the gold collar, cuff and shoes by British accessories designer Lara Boinc and the clutch by McQueen. So delish.
More purple carpet looks with commentary (duh) after the jump!
Ana Ivanovic: I'm a bit torn on this one by Matthew Williamson. I think overall she looks fine (hair, makeup, dress) but there's something about the dress I don't like. It looks a bit stiff which is making NaturAna seem a bit stiff. And what's that stuff underneath the bust - flowers or fruit? Hmph.
Serena Williams: SHA-BAM! She's back in a big way. Love the Burberry, love the curves, LOVE IT ALL.
Caroline Wozniacki: This Stella McCartney could be interesting on a more dramatic personality - someone with outlandish hair, tattoos, interesting accessories. Sorry Sunshine, you're not that person. It's a style that needs to be worked; you can't just stand there like your covered arm is fused to your body. And the hair and shoes are just...no.
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova: I'm kind of a big fan of what Nasty wears off-court including this David Koma. She likes to take risks but still keeps it youthful. Not a bad combo. Like the hair, just not on her.
Jelena Jankovic: When I heard JJ would be working Vivienne Westwood I was hoping for something more...er...Vivienne Westwood. I think she could totes pull off the Brit designer's stuff - frilly, fun, theatrical. Aside from the screaming red this choice is kinda fug. I'm def not liking the hair, either. P.S. - I'm SO hoping the Serb moves out of this red/pink/pepto phase stat. Thank GAWD for Wimby whites.
Li Na: Now here's an interesting choice by the Roland Garros champ. Like Nasty, the Chinese baller is another one who likes to take risks off-court and this Giles Deacon is no exception. It's almost like she's wearing an piece of art. The shoes are also pretty cool, though I wouldn't necessarily pair them with this particular dress. But what would I pair with this dress? Nasty's hair. Art + art.
Francesca Schiavone: I love that Fran doesn't try to do anything fashion-y. She wears what works for her and still looks stylish and comfortable. TAKE NOTES, LADIES.
Sabine Lisicki: Love the color on Lissie but overall it's a bit plain. She could've amped the look up with some great accessories in gold and a sexier shoe.
Sorana Cirstea: Here's another dress I a bit torn on. It has some interesting texture with the white peeping out from behind the black but it's just missing that one accessory to put it over the top.
Andrea Petkovic: I really want to see this Richard Nicoll but Petko's wearing that annoying black blazer over it. She's literally suffocating the style out of the dress; but from what I can see it's cute. The shoes are a whole other story.
Alize Cornet: 'A' FOR EFFORT FRENCHIE!!!
Laura Robson + Anna Keothavong: Um, ladies. Word of advice: These dresses are great. FOR YOUR MOMS. When you're young it's okay to have fun with fashion. Really.
Bethanie Mattek-Sands: Speaking of fun with fashion...We finally got to see what Lady Gaga's designer cooked up for BMS. It's as outlandish as I thought it would be and then some. Expectations are never managed when it comes to her. That being said, it's weird to see her in a 'gown' but she's having fun with it so whatever. Uh, did I just say that???
