Maria Sharapova celebrated the upcoming Wimbledon tournament at a party held at Kensington Roof Gardens in London on Thursday night.

The tennis star had fun on the red carpet, playing with the high-low hemline of her Antonio Berardi Fall 2012 dress.

As she tends to favour these feminine looks off the court, Maria looked excited to wear the nude chiffon dress with leather embroidery.

“I love being in London and the energy of this city,” Maria said. “That energy inspired me to explore Britain’s up-and-coming talent and to support designer Antonio Berardi, who was kind enough to make my dress.”

The world’s current No. 1 ranked tennis player accessorized the look with ruby-red satin Roger Vivier ‘Sport Chic’ heels, which complemented her earrings, and an Alexander McQueen clutch which complemented her dress.

As always at this event, the majority of her looks were designed by British brands.

Do you like the contrasting red heels, or should Maria have gone head-to-toe matchy matchy?
