Photos: WTA at Wimbledon player party

The WTA’s stars took over Kensington Gardens for the tour’s annual pre-Wimbledon party on Thursday night in London.

Serena Williams arrived with coach/confidant Patrick Mouratoglou, while Maria Sharapova hit the pink carpet without boyfriend Grigor Dimitrov and dazzled in a classy Burberry dress. Victoria Azarenka, Ana Ivanovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Sloane Stephens and Laura Robson were among the other players who attended.

But it was Bethanie Mattek-Sands who stole the show. The always fashion-daring American showed up in a simple white dress accessorized with Google Glass and her new, multicolored neon hair. Well, that’s one way to get around the whole “predominantly white” fashion rules at Wimbledon.

After the jump, check out some pictures of players arriving at the party.

    Heather Watson looks like she'd be the most fun to be with.

    I'd bet she's really real and fun.

    Serena and Ana Ivanovic look fab. But Sharapova looks really old, jankovic's expression says it all and Azarenka's look seems bland. in fact for a moment i didn't recognize her!

    Love Serena's look but I'm getting distracted by the nails. It clashes with the look.

    I love Maria's as well minus the shoes. It seems too small for her hence making her feet look big and the ankle straps cuts off her legs making her legs look shorter (I can't believe I said that Maria being an Amazon lol)

    I'm weirded out with Bethanie's eyepiece. But I don't mind the other elements in her look. I actually like the dress/belt combo.

    Ana, Petra - eye makeup is just wrong. Petra's love affair with eyeliner is making her look older. But all in all great effort from both ladies.

    Sloane Stephens - pleasantly surprised with her. She cleaned up really well. Dress length is hovering dangerously close to hoochie territory but thankfully she didn't went there.

    Vika's hair left a lot to be desired. Looks like she did her hair all by herself. But the dress looks young and hip.

    Laura, Laura. You're 18, 19 yrs old. Have fun with fashion. Take some fashion points from Sloane. You should attempt with this look at least 10 yrs in the future. The dress itself is not bad at all but I believe there are younger ensemble available in Burberry.

    I can't get over Agi's blonde moment. Nuff said.

    Dani - FLAWLESS

    Heather - Cute and age-appropriate

    Angelique - too dressed down and conservative for the player party. Ditch the sweater girl. It's killing your look.

    Love Jelena's look. Girl is clearly rocking it to the max.

    Ana looked great, better than she did in the past couple of years. My favorite is still her 2009 Wimbledon party look, though.
