WTA's Glamour Girls Get Dolled Up for Pre-Wimbledon Party

The Pre-Wimbledon party is one of the biggest red-carpet events for the ladies of the WTA Tour, as the extravaganza, this year hosted by Richard Branson, lets the athletes trade in their Nike and Adidas sneakers for Louboutins and Manolos. This year held at the Roof Gardens in London, the party's attendees hit the style mark on the head, for the most part, at least.

Maria Sharapova, pictured above, opted for a shiny and shimmery plunging gold number paired with brown strappy heels. The Russian's look was perfection, head to toe, as usual.

Serena Williams decided to let her hair and shoes do the talking. She wore a muted off-the-shoulder black mini, but her shoes were anything but quiet. The silver bedazzled ankle-booties were a little over the top, as was Williams' 80's style hair, but what would you expect from the WTA's resident drama queen.

Venus Williams was celebrating her 30th birthday today, and the b-day girl impressed with her look. V wore a simple ivory dress, putting the focus on her gold accessories, from her shoes, to her necklaces to her earrings and bracelets.

Not bad for a 30-year old. Not bad at all. Hope you enjoyed your big day, girl!

Despite Jelena Jankovic's tendency to go a little cray-cray with her red-carpet choices, the Serbian was a perfect 10 on Thursday, looking stunning in a gold and black lace number with a tulle overlay. She opted for matchy-matchy shoes, earning her the Serve and Return title of best dressed for the event.
Nice work, JJ!

Dinara Safina went low-key in a grey body-hugging, short-sleeved number with a belt. She seems to have gotten a haircut too. Let's hope she can turn her recent results around at Wimby.

Ana Ivanovic went total-glam for her outfit, from the hair all the way down to her sky-high strappy stilettos. Aussie Ana went with a kaleidoscope dress and she must have been the tallest girl there in her sky-scraping heels. Look at those legs!

Elena Baltacha wore a pretty lady-like dress, with a banded waist and an embellished neckline. BUT, the Brit should have ironed her ensemble before leaving the house. And couldn't anyone tell her about her very apparent sock tan-line!

Anne Keothavong was another best-dressed, donning a blue maxi dress with gold floral detailing. She looked great and was smart to keep her accessories to a minimum.
