The ‘battle of the blow-dries’ had Kim Murray and the Duchess of Cambridge as contenders. American Vogue’s Anna Wintour wore Prada and David Beckham looked as suave as supposed. From footie star Thierry Henry to actors Bradley Cooper, Benedict Cumberbatch and Hugh Grant, everyone (except poor Lewis Hamilton) dressed dapper to sit courtside, as the world’s best tennis players put on a spectacular show.
So, between the royals and the A-listers that came out to play at Wimbledon last week, who won the off-court crown for maximum eyeballs garnered?
Here in India, the award goes to a debonair Virat Kohli and his ladylove Anushka Sharma — who made it to centre court alongside Anjali and Sachin Tendulkar, during the men’s singles semis on Friday. As Federer took on Murray in an epic battle, Anushka looked unflappable in white. Everyone else was hot under the collar trying to decide whether her delightful Valentino handbag or the well-groomed Virat made for better arm candy. If you’re wondering, we vote ‘Virat’ — not that the good folks at Valentino should take it personally; VK even made Sienna Miller’s rouge-red lipstick look pale in comparison!
