WHAT: Designed by British designer Alex Noble (he collaborated with Lady Gaga on the "Judas" music video), the athlete's jacket was composed of a dozen tennis balls (which were cut in half) along with silver studs and long fringe. Maybe she was inspired by the fringe on Song of Style's '60s-inspired shawl?
And yes, the flashy attire adhered to Wimbledon's all-white rule, but she did not compete in the attention-grabbing piece. According to "The Mirror," one spokesperson said, "As long as it conforms to all the rules that's fine. There's a taste question to it but that's not something we decide on."
WHERE: Wimbledon Tennis Championships.
WHY: The self-proclaimed Lady Gaga of the women's tour garnered gasps and laughs from the crowd as she arrived for her first match against Japan's Misaki Doi.
