Last night The Handbook joined the likes of Mischa Barton, Serena Williams, Sabine Lisicki and Lilah Parsons at The Roof Gardens, Kensington to celebrate the annual WTA Pre-Wimbledon party presented by Dubai Duty Free.
With a dress to impress theme, celebrities arrived with the support of Porsche (The Handbook took to public transport but next year, next year….) and Maria Sharapova stole the show arriving in a 918 Spyder.
The invitation promised ‘substantial canapés’ (the best kind of promise) and they certainly stuck to that – with guests eating mini fish and chips, samosas and salmon as well as there being not one, not two, but three barbecues and of course in true Wimbledon style there were pots and pots of strawberries and cream.
Revelers drank Laurent Perrier, Pimms and Ciroc Vodka cocktails (the latter being also available in Bodo’s Schloss and Mahiki) , danced to DJ Bob Sinclair, basked in the beautiful gardens and admired stunning views; even the football fans were able to watch the game inside – although after the score let’s not talk about that.
With Wimbledon starting next week, this was the perfect way to celebrate the start of the most quintessential summer event!
