Picture perfect Beautiful - Wimbledon pre party.

The red carpet was rolled out last night for the Wimbledon pre-party and our favourite tennis starts did not disappoint in the style section...Okay well some of them looked good others however, well they do say a picture says a thousand words.

First of all, the 'Queen of Tennis Fashion' Maria Sharapova does not disappoint in her red Alexander McQueen dress. Sharapova does look stunning and yes, I want that dress!

Of course, for those who do not know Alexander McQueen was also the label behind the Duchess of Cambridge's gorgeous wedding dress and sister Pippa's bridesmaid dress which earned her behind public recognition...including its very own facebook page!

Sharapova wasn't the only tennis start sporting red as Jelena Jankovic was wearing the same shade in a dress by my favourite designer, Vivienne Westwood. Westwood's designs also recorded critical acclaim, for the wrong reasons, at the Royal Wedding as Princess Eugenie sported a less favourable creation by the world renowned fashion designer.

Oh yeah and Vivienne also made the famous Sex and The City wedding dress of Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker)

Returning after a tad under a year layoff, Serena Williams made sure she would stand out at the part as she wore a figure hugging turquoise green Burberry creation which accentuated her body figure...not as much as last year's outfit though!
I really like the shoes Serena!

Anastasia Pavlychenkova had an interesting outfit that I am not sure suited her or not, all I know is that I am not a fan Pav...better luck next time! While Andrea Petkovic was wearing a simple pink Richard Nicoll dress which did look quite good on her. Hair and make up on the other hand were a letdown.
British hopefuls Laura Robson and Heather Watson wore Temperly and Mulberry respectively.
As Bethanie Mattek Sands teamed up with Lady Gaga's designer Alex Noble she most defiantly did not disappoint as we were left to expect a creations of tennis balls and racquet string! Well, I think this just tops some of her other crazy on-court creations.
 Sania Mirza was pretty in pink and looking amazing, her to die for engagement ring was present too!

Vania King and Tsvetana Prionkova managed to bring style despite heavy sock tans. I think the pleasant surprise of the part for me was Pironkova.

Ana Ivanovic combined colour an glamour successfully to create a nice outfit.  However Caroline Wozniacki chose an unflattering Stella Mcartney design which looks passable from this angle but does not complement her figure when looking at the dress front on.

And now my absolute favourites from the players party, Sabine Lisicki and Sorana Cirstiea.

Couldn't find out who the wore but both look stunning in their outfits and everything worked well for them, hair, makeup, shoes, everything!

Who were your favourites?

1)Divapova's dress looks like an old fashion tennis dress. Thumbs down.

2)Straight thumbs down for Lady Goo Goo wanna be. Next!

3)Stella McCurse is a horrible designer I kind of feel sorry for the Big Bunny. Any who thumbs down.

4)Petkovic's dress color reminded me of the color of the tennis dress that the Bunny wore at the USO 09. It was the color of unpleasant digestive gas. Thumbs down.

5)I have to agree Sorana looks stunning. Thumbs up.

6)Lisicki looks good. Thumbs up.

7)JJ looks great thumbs up.

They all have pale ale color feet.

IMO, Lisicki has the best dress.

Mattek Sands' 'getup' would look better on Bunny. It just seems like something she would think looks good.

Dokic wins 6-2, 2-0 when Oprandi retired. The Ostrich is currently in a rain delay. Cibulkova finished off Kuzzie and is proceeding to work over Vinci. (Up 3-2 in the first set.)

Btw, are my eyes deceiving me or is Oprandi sportin' a lip ring? Not hot!

Wimbledon draw is out.. Now for my likes, dislikes, and possible matchups:


Dokic faces Schiavone in the first round.
McHale faces Makarova in the first round.
Chakvetadze faces Sharapova in the first round.


Mr. Oudin vs. Imbecile (battle of the dimwits)

possible matchups:

Gajdosova or Cibulkova vs. Bunny 1/8
Bunny vs. Julia 1/4

The Williams sisters sorta throw a wrench into my enjoyment. Basically, either one of them can beat my women. (Well, I wouldn't say beating Kimmie is a given for either one but she's not playing and when she does its been lackluster as of late.)

Emily or as Carlos likes to call me "Captain" said...

We all agree on something - Sabine looks good :)

I have just completed my draw analysis...even I think I have become crazy! Ahahaha!
