3 Fashion Winners: Wimbledon 2014

The endless champagne, strawberries and cream, A-list celebrities and royal encounters (oh, and the tennis!) make  Wimbledon one of the most extravagant and exclusive events of the year. While most attention is  focused on court, watching players battle it out for the most prestigious prize in the game, it’s what’s happening off the court that catches the attention of fashionistas all over the world. Here are three of our favorite looks from Wimbledon 2014.

Fit For Royalty

Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton aka Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge is known for her sophisticated and elegant style. She is an advocate of re-wearing outfits by styling them uniquely, snubbing other A-list celebs who often ooze pretentiousness for only wearing an outfit once. Above we see Kate wear a beautiful white dress with carefully crafted cut-outs that perfectly suits Wimbledon’s all-white policy for players. She’s paired this with a great woven fan purse (perfect for keeping cool while watching the tennis) and a vibrant red scarf.

 

Back Up Has Arrived!

Kim Sears

Kim Sears may be unknown to most, however if Wimbledon was a kingdom, she would definitely be it’s queen. As the long-time girlfriend of crowd favorite Andy Murray and daughter of tennis coach Nigel Sears, Kim has been to her fair share of Wimbledon championships. Often in a constant battle against Kate Middleton to reign supreme in the fashion stakes, Kim can be seen flaunting designer outfits everyday of the tournament. Above we see Kim pairing a pink and white leopard print dress and a versatile dark blazer that works surprisingly very well.

 

On-Screen Royalty

Natalie Dormer

Best known for her performance as Margaery Tyrell in the hit television series Game of Thrones, Natalie Dormer has recently become on-screen royalty with thousands of fans across the globe. Her retro inspired look really stands out from the crowd with a beautifully bright flower-power dress and even brighter pink hand bag.
