Tom Hiddleston & other celebrities came out for the Wimbledon men’s final

In 2020, Wimbledon was canceled because of the pandemic. In 2021, the players were in a Pandemic Bubble in a hotel, and there were limits to how many spectators could be seated on any given court. This year’s Wimbledon was nice because everything was allowed to be at full capacity, although the seats were rarely at 100% because the ticket prices were crazy-high, apparently. All of which to say, this is the first time in three years where celebrities were really coming out to watch tennis. Tom Hiddleston hadn’t gone to Wimbledon since 2019! He came back for the men’s final on Sunday. Incidentally, the men’s final was awful. The women’s final was amazing. It was that way last year too. Although Tom looked especially dapper, he wasn’t seated in the Royal Box. I think he was seated in the Ralph Lauren-sponsored section (and he wore Ralph Lauren). His hair is so dark! I guess he’s filming Loki again.

Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whitely also appeared to be seated in the Ralph Lauren section. They both looked great, honestly. Rosie just welcomed their second child, daughter Isabella, back in February.

Taika Waititi and Rita Ora were there, not in the Royal Box. Rita’s style is so bad because she’s so inconsistent. You can really tell when she’s being professionally styled by a designer’s team and when she puts together a look herself.

Genuinely surprised to see Kate Winslet there, she rarely comes out to sporting events like this. Well, maybe some horse shows and derbies, but tennis? This is rare. Her dress is hilariously bad too.

Bonus Andrew Garfield, looking like he came straight from an E.M. Forster novel.

    Bless Kate Winslet, she looks like all of us would look even though we tried to look posh.

  2. girl_ninja says:

    No one looked particularly great, not even Tom or Andrew.

    • Josephine says:

      I thought Jason looked spot on and Rosie looked beautiful but I don’t understand the super high neck (mock neck?) on the dress. I’m guessing she’s under contract to wear it?

      I appreciate Andrew’s lighter colors but man that look is sloppy and dated and ages him.

    Loki Season 2 started filming two weeks ago in London, hence the black hair and the availability to attend Wimbledon on a Sunday but no the other days. Tom was seated near Andrew Garfield with Jason Statham and Rosie right in front of them and Matt Smith and his mother next to them. Matt got cropped out of a lot of pictures but his mother with her white hat and her phone made it into most of them. Her facial expressions are a hoot.

    And Tom looks really good.

    Strawberries and cream for everyone on the veranda.

    • Josephine says:

      I was wondering about the hair! He looks amazing but I don’t understand the heavy look for Wimbledon.

      • L84Tea says:

        My first thought was, Yay! Loki hair! New episodes coming!

      • Lila says:

        Sounds delish! I’ll bring the mimosas.

        Glad to see Tom back filming (and in particular with Owen Wilson). Idk what that says about the ending of season 1, but they’re so adorable I’m glad the team is back together.

      • LightPurple says:

        @josephine, it’s pretty much just the black hair. If the suit is Ralph Lauren, they usually give him something blue to wear and that looks like it might be made of linen so not so heavy-weight.

  4. Macheath says:

    London is an absolute sweat box this week. I don’t know how any of them can cope in a full suit.

    Tom looks great though, he wears the hell out of a suit.

  5. Chaine says:

    Poor Kate, that dress easily adds several decades to her age!

  6. Sylvia says:

    Did you guys know that Tom’s girlfriend is pregnant?!

    • LightPurple says:

      Yes, there was a thread about her Vogue article covering it last week.

    • Green Desert says:

      They’re engaged, too! And I hope we get to see the Hiddles-baby.

      Tom looks good here, as always.

      • CourtneyB says:

        Zawe is in the MCU family with Tom now too. She’s in the upcoming Captain Marvel 2.

  7. Veronica S. says:

    Oh, huh, it’s so strange how much I don’t like the black hair on him as much outside the Loki character. Goes to show how much style and dress affect how well certain colors wear on your features.

    Rosie and Statham are one of those couples that are kind of pleasantly low key. She always go for simple elegance, and it works really well for her.

    Rita’s dress would be fine with different shoes. The big platforms just don’t go with something so summery and flowy. Needed a simpler sandal cut heel.

  8. Lucy says:

    Andrew Garfield looks so great. I’m now obsessed with the idea of him in an EM Foster adaptation. Imagine him in Maurice!

  9. thaisajs says:

    Looking at that crowd…it was awfully white. I know it’s like that every year, but it seemed especially bad from that perspective this year.

  10. Indica says:

    Skipping ‘why I know this’.

    Apparently Aer Lingus cancelled a LOT of flights from Ireland to England. There were (from what I was told) a lot of tennis fans with tickets who were planning on going and were very upset because while the plane tickets were refunded, the Wimbledon tickets weren’t.

  11. Annette Frank says:

    Heard Taika and Rita are moving into her £8million fixer upper London home. Wonder if they will ever get married.

  12. Virginfangirl says:

    To the men who wore suits. That’s a commitment, to sweat like crazy to looking dashing. But Tom did look great in his suit. As usual.

  13. Julia K says:

    Every time I see a photo of Tom H iddleston I wonder how is it possible that he fell into Taylor Swifts’ spiderweb/ trap? She made him look like an idiot at that silly July 4 party. And I say this as someone who sort of likes Taylor Swift, but she is definitely not in his class.
