Five Times Wimbledon Whites Made Headline History

Such as the Royal Ascot last week, strict sartorial rules have been implemented for Wimbledon. The tennis tournament’s “all-white” rule now explicitly covers caps, headbands, bandannas, wristbands, shoes and even “any undergarments that either are or can be visible during play.” But, as all followers of fashion know, rules are made to be broken. So here are a couple of our fave ladies (and man) who have flouted and failed the strict rules of Wimbledon whites, and its illustrious 136-year history.

That time Maria Sharapova wore tuxedo-inspired activewear in 2008…

That time Roger Federer Roger strode onto centre court wearing a white army style jacket over a gold lame accented waistcoat.

That time Bethanie Mattek-Sands channeled Lady Gaga and donned a coat of tennis balls.

That time Venus Williams beat Akgul Amanmuradova in a onesie.


That time Serena Williams started warming up in a trench-coat.
