Wimbledon Fashion. On Court Style Continues to Transform.

June 24, 2008 • Celebrity Style

We’ve talked about Maria Sharapova‘s penchant for on-court extravagances before. Last year, the budding fashionista and tennis champ wore Swarovski crystal encrusted togs to play. This year, she upped the meter again with Tiffany pearl buttons on her ’20s inspired dresses, and a different pair of thousand-dollar Tiffany earrings for every match she plays in a Grand Slam.

At Wimbledon, arguably the big show of all the Grand Slam tournaments, center court has truly become a runway. Not to be outdone by the young gun, champs and trend-setters Serena Williams and Roger Federer have progressed their style game, too. Williams showed up this year in a white belted trench coat that she herself admitted wasn’t meant for sporting practicality– she did say, however, that it was "ladylike and I’m very ladylike. It goes perfect with my personality and everything else." Federer, who wore an ivory blazer to accept his trophy last year, sported a cream cardigan and white leather bag this year.

But still, Sharapova steals the spotlight in this, her gametime get-up for Wimbledon 2008:

Sharapova will enter court and warm up in this custom white tuxedo, made by Nike. She will then change into a short suit, with tuxedo bib front for games, all designed with upmost attention to performance. Truly inspired.

We’re glad to see the champions are keeping it colorful nonetheless at the all-white affair!
