Oh, come on! Like we weren’t going to make the obvious “balls” joke here – it was practically handed to us on a plate, for crying out loud!
Speaking of jokes, though, we’re going to assume this IS one.
Has to be, doesn’t it?
And OK, it was the Wimbledon pre-party, which, as far as we’re aware, isn’t normally a costume event, but we’re assuming US tennis player Bethanie Mattek-Sands just decided it was time to inject a sense of humour into the game. People who wear dresses designed by Alex Noble, who’s one of Lady Gaga’s favourite designers, aren’t normally expecting to be taken seriously, after all. Which is a good thing, here.
Kudos to you, Bethanie Mattek-Sands – The Fashion Police aren’t sports fans, so we’d never even heard of you until now, but we’ll be sure to keep you on our radar!
(P.S. This photos is actually a couple of weeks old, but we’ve been on vacation, so we’re just catching up. We couldn’t let a tennis ball dress go unrecorded…)
