WIMBLEDON WINNERS ANDY MURRAY & MARION BARTOLI CELEBRATE IN STYLE
The third Grand Slam of the tennis season was marked by early upsets, surprise stars and a picture perfect triumph. Andy Murray’s straight set Wimbledon win over Novak Djokovic made him the first male British winner in 77 years. On the women’s side, Marion Bartoli scored her first Grand Slam title, with a dominant victory over Sabine Lisicki. But Wimbledon’s all-white styling paled in comparison to the on-court excitement. With a strict dress code, even Roger Federer’s orange-soled sneakers were deemed a fashion violation. The Winner’s Ball, however, provided an opportunity for both Murray and Bartoli to showcase their victory style.
Murray’s English pride extended to his celebratory fashion. He chose to wear British designer, Burberry, to the Wimbledon Winner’s Ball last night. The men’s champ traded his adidas stripes for a classic black tux from the fashion house.
Marion Bartoli also dressed to impress for the evening. Her fashion choice was a sharp contrast to the Wimbledon whites seen throughout the tournament. Instead Bartoli opted for a form-fitting, textured black mini paired with Christian Louboutin ankle booties. Her style statement helped to silence BBC’s John Inverdale, following his controversial comments about her appearance. Prior to the ball, Bartoli had responded:
“I invite this journalist to come and see me this evening in ball gown and heels, and in my opinion he could change his mind. I am not blonde, yes. Have I dreamt about having a model contract? No. But have I dreamed about winning Wimbledon? Absolutely.”
