Anyone daft enough to try to body-shame the sporting legend would be lost for words at the sight of her on the “purple carpet” in her show-stopping embellished gown.
The 33-year-old six-time Wimbledon champion, who lifted the Wimbledon ladies’ trophy on Saturday after beating Garbine Muguruza in straight sets, was joined by men’s champion Novak Djokovic at the Guildhall to celebrate their achievements.

Djokovic was fresh from his victory over Roger Federer, following a four-set final on Centre Court. The Serbian — and World Number One — sealed his win in the fourth set of the game, after losing the second set to Federer, and gained his ninth Grand Slam title.
Djokovic was accompanied to the lavish party by his wife Jelena, on what also happened to be the couple’s first wedding anniversary. However, it was Serena who took to the stage with Djokovic for a winners’ dance, which Jelena hinted at on Twitter before the party, posting: “Hey @serenawilliams Novak just asked me for a permission to ask you for a champions dance tonight. Get ready!”
