When Wimbledon’s female players swing those rackets and shake those skirts, can fashionistas be far behind? Please. Tennis and fashion are tighter than ever. Witness this week’s pre-Wimbledon party at the Kensington Rooftop Gardens in London. Entertainers joined tennis athletes and they all were in top fashion form. A major crowd-pleaser was Serena Williams in jade green dress. Bethanie Mattek-Sands, the Carmen Miranda of tennis, wore a yellow dress with bodice full of yellow tennis balls.

Maria Sharapova and Marc by Marc Jacobs 16919
Small wonder the camera crew goes into a frenzy when Maria Sharapova walks into a room. Something magic will happen if Maria’s red tennis-flounce party dress and the Marc by Marc Jacobs 16919 Oxford Ankle Boot Black Suede make a match.
