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.

Maria Sharapova: I don’t know how Sharapova can pull off a dress that looks like it fought (and lost) a battle with an army of Sharpies, but she can. (Ian Gavan/Getty Images)
Bethanie-Mattek Sands: She looks like an alien from the future. And I mean that as a compliment. (Ferdaus Shamim/WireImage)
Ana Ivanovic: The Serb nails that “I’m a Bond girl but, like, a nice one” look. (Ferdaus Shamim/WireImage)
Sloane Stephens: It’s a good thing they had this party Thursday night, because Stephens might not be smiling as wide after seeing she was drawn Friday morning to face Jamie Hampton in the first round. (Ian Gavan/Getty Images)

Heather Watson: Watson said she wanted to look like “a fluffy tennis ball.” Then she was stumped when an interviewer asked her who she was wearing. Whoops! (Ian Gavan/Getty Images)
