The Wimbledon Tennis Championships are coming back on July 3 — and so are their ranks of well-dressed star guests.
Every year, the international tennis tournament is held in London, as athletes compete in a range of matches. The occasion notably draws celebrity guests in its various rows, which have included stars ranging from Sienna Miller and the Beckham family to the royal family — particularly Kate Middleton and Prince William.
Attendees are often sharply dressed in a range of attire for the occasion, from business casual to formal; suiting, daytime dresses and monochrome separates are frequently seen, with those on the most casual end of the spectrum often wearing shorter dresses or classic blue jeans within their outfits.
On the shoe front, options vary just as widely. Crisp white sneakers and a narray of neutral flats and low-heeled sandals can regularly be seen, as well as espadrille-soled wedges. Sharper formality is further emphasized with classically dressy shoes, as well — often wingtips and brogues for men, while women regularly sport pointed-toe pumps, platform and stiletto-heeled sandals in a wide range of colors and textures.
As we await 2023’s crop of celebrity Wimbledon outfits, we’re taking a look back at some of the top celebrity style moments in the stands — and nearby — over the years.
In 2015, Sienna Miller attended the tournament in a white double-pocketed linen shirt, tucked into a set of flared blue jeans. The “Alfie” actress’ attire was finished with several mixed-metal bracelets, hoop earrings and a deep rust leather crossbody bag, as well as light brown suede open-toed sandals.
Heidi Klum arrived to Wimbledon in 2016, stepping out in a delicate eyelet-trimmed black blouse and lightly distressed blue skinny jeans. Layered beneath a faintly oversized black velvet blazer, the “Project Runway” host finished her outfit with gleaming gold aviator sunglasses, a laser-perforated black leather tote bag and towering black suede platform sandals with strappy uppers and thick block heels.
In 2018, Drake was spotted in the stands at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club for Wimbledon, wearing black joggers, white socks and a green hoodie from his own October’s Very Own label. The “Nice For What” rapper’s outfit was complete with white leather lace-up sneakers, as well as a gleaming gold watch and necklace.
In 2021, Alexa Chung made a sharp arrival at Polo Ralph Lauren’s annual VIP suite during the Wimbledon matches. For the occasion, the “It” author wore a sequined blue T-shirt tucked into a set of light tan trousers. Layered atop was a tan sweater, which Chung knotted around her shoulders in a preppy fashion. The it-girl’s outfit was completed with a brown leather handbag and black leather close-toed sandals — complete with side cutouts to beat the heat.
In 2022, Kate Middleton attended the final men’s match of Wimbledon in a navy midi dress covered in delicate white polka dots. The royal — then Duchess of Cambridge — finished her ensemble with a diamond and sapphire pendant necklace, small drop earrings and a silver wristwatch, as well as cap-toed white and black leather Mary Jane pumps.
