Wimbledon is in full swing, and international celebs and British aristocracy have flocked to the matches to see fierce competitors like Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova battle it out on those clay courts. And while the tennis champs are duking it out, Wimbledon crowds have normally remained prim and proper, hiding behind tinted sunglasses. But this year, with appearances from Drake, Ciara, and Bradley Cooper, spectator fashion has decidedly been more active.
"I swear I could beat Serena when she's playing with her left"— Worst Behavior
We highly doubt Drake has a chance with Serena, on or off the court, but the boastful Canadian rapper has dressed like a zealous sports fan during the legendary tennis competition.
Taking in day eight of the championship this week, the rapper worked a literal approach to sportswear, donning athletic track pants with an athletic sweatshirt from his own OVO collection, adding high-top sneakers to finish off the effect.
Of course, as always, his look became instantly memeable, with folks carrying his new haircut and comparing him to a tennis ball.
Nevertheless, the sports aficionado got a chance to meet tennis legend Billie Jean King and show Venus Williams plenty of love.
Bradley Cooper was no better than Drake, though, the actor bucking all sense of menswear tradition and turning up in a nylon windbreaker, a backwards hat and what appear to be reflective Oakley sunglasses. He was more high school tennis coach than "Sexiest Man Alive," but I digress.
Ciara, too, came in her own version of "athleisure", wearing only a football jersey-inspired oversized Givenchy tee and aviator sunglasses. Trying to beat the heatwave that has seemingly taken over London, while supporting her BFF and tennis powerhouse, Serena Williams, the singer certainly turned heads in her barely-there ensemble.
Twinning much?! David Beckham and lookalike son Romeo made a striking, natty pair in near-matching tailored suiting for day nine of the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships yesterday. Although looking terribly dapper, the two forewent ties, leaving the top button unfastened — a small detail that, like Drake's push for sportswear, made the look a bit more modern and laidback for such a sporting event.
Kit Harrington, on the other hand, chose a full suit, replete with tie, to troll me and millions of other thirsty Game of Thrones fans, the rakish actor resembling something of an English schoolboy rather than the muscle-bound live-action hero, Jon Snow.
There was certainly some decorum, though — the Duchess of Cambridge was in the audience, after all.
Kate Middleton slid into a simple red frock and behind some dark shades to take in the matches with the rest of the royals, her sister included.
