In anticipation of the Wimbledon, Dubai Duty Free presented the annual WTA Pre-Wimbledon Party. This year’s celebration was held at the Kensington Gardens on Thursday, June 19. In attendance were the biggest tennis stars in the world, accompanied by their personal guests. Although the focus of the event was on the upcoming Wimbledon, which begins June 23, the spotlight was on the athletes’ fashion. The stars stunned the red carpet in gorgeous gowns.

One of our favorites was Ajla Tomljanovic, who wore a black blouse and a short gray skirt to the event. What we particularly loved about the look was that she looked mature in the red carpet appropriate ensemble, but was also sporty and quirky, showing off her personal style and personality.

Another stunner at the event was Daniela Hantuchova, who wore a tight white mini dress. The  Slovakian tennis player paired her copper-embellished dress with minimal jewelry and sparkling peep-toe shoes, similar to these we found from Steve Madden “Scandal” pumps from Polyvore.com

Maria Sharapova looked absolutely stunning in her unique white dress, which had a sheer, iridescent fabric on the shoulders and buttons similar to those found on a double breasted coat. What set her apart in this look was the effortless elegance. Sharapova looked neither provocative nor overly sexy, but classy and put together, which we found refreshing in the tennis champion.

One of the most unique looks of the night came from Li Na, wearing a Gucci jumpsuit in plum. The star looked perfectly put together in the streamlined outfit, and stood out from the crowd in her daring choice of clothing.

Venus Williams was definitely dressed for success at the event, looking incredibly fashionable in an aqua blue sparkling dress.  The world renowned tennis champion stole the show as she walked down the red carpet in this bold dress. We loved her short, natural hair and the coral red lip she paired with the outfit. She was definitely not afraid of the spotlight, and we are excited to see the same star power on the court.
