Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams & Li Na Show Off Designer Looks Ahead Of Wimbledon (PHOTOS, POLL)

Posted: Updated:

The world's top tennis players ditched their swingy skirts and left their rackets behind to attend a Pre-Wimbledon party in London on Thursday night.

Vogue UK reports that each woman was outfitted by a British Fashion Council designer and their ensembles were eventually auctioned off for charity. David Koma, who dressed Russian stunner Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, told the glossy, "I've been in love with tennis since my childhood. It's one of the most beautiful games. It was really exciting to work on this collaboration and to create a dress, as I'm always inspired by femininity mixed with fantastic strength of character, which is exactly what tennis players are born with."

Take a look at photos from the event, and for more, head over to Vogue.co.uk.
