Wimbledon tennis starts next week and when something starts in celebrity land it’s the perfect excuse for a party. To officially launch the start of tennis season, Richard Branson’s Virgin group hosted a big party at London’s exclusive Kensington Roof Gardens and it got the Royal seal of approval. Cressida Bonas (on the right in the photo above) is dating Prince Harry. She’s posing with her sister Isabella, who is married to Richard Branson’s son Sam. Business royalty means real royalty and both are gorgeous. They really stood out at the party in their printed jumpsuits as most other celebrities wore white!
However, later I found out that Maria is under a lot of pressure this year because it is 9 years since she won Wimbledon. Last year she didn’t get beyond the fourth round and it’s damaged her confidence. She’s desperate for a win and is training hard. So she’s probably tired as well.
Looking more energetic and also wearing white (a pretty white blouse) was Take Me Out Extra presenter Zoe Hardman. I asked her for some style tips and she told me working out and feeling comfortable in her body boosted her confdence. She’s just started a new workout regime at an exclusive gym called Barry’s Bootcamp in London. Sounds fun! Her legs certainly look toned and beige shoes do help with that too.
Also at the party was British hopeful Laura Robson but she didn’t stay long as she wanted to have an early night in preparation. She is taking it seriously! I hope she does well this year.
I’m also hoping we see some interesting outfits from the people that go to watch the matches. I think there should be less formal outfits and more jumpsuits. What do you think? If it’s good enough for the royals it’s good enough for me!
