Tom Hiddleston & Zawe Ashton came out for the Wimbledon men’s final

Yesterday’s Wimbledon men’s final was jam-packed with celebrities and royals. People were really excited to see Novak Djokovic play Carlos Alcaraz on Novak’s favorite surface, grass. The match ended up being pretty classic, with Alcaraz needing five sets to get the win over Djokovic, the seven-time Wimbledon champion (who won four of those championships in a row). Tom Hiddleston came out with his wife/partner (I don’t know if they’re actually married) Zawe Ashton. Zawe gave birth to their first child last year, probably in September or October. We still don’t know anything about the kid! Zawe and Hiddles look happy but I dislike her dress so much. Designers these days are hellbent on making those puffy-shouldered monstrosities.

Everyone was obsessed with Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz in the Royal Box. So many cutaways to them! They’re so hot together.

King Felipe of Spain came out to watch Alcaraz (who is Spanish). Felipe and Letizia are big tennis fans, and they were present at Wimbledon in 2008 when Rafael Nadal won his first Wimbledon title too. I guess Letizia didn’t want to travel this weekend though.

Brad Pitt went to the final with Guy Ritchie. The Wimbledon social media account was all aflutter about this abuser. Gross.

Ariana Grande was working on Wicked before the strike, so I guess she stayed in town for the final. She was seated next to Andrew Garfield… and she was not wearing her wedding ring. Is this gossip? Because Garfield and Grande definitely looked friendly.

    Zawe’s dress looks awful, Brad Pitt looks scruffy like he needs a good clean up and I believe may also have been there to show his support for Carlos Alcaraz – has King Felipe attended in the past? I don’t pay attention to tennis too much to be honest.

  2. girl_ninja says:

    Zawe looked loved but yes that dress is not a good look. Must the puff sleeves be so large? Ariana kind of looked like she was hiding? I hope she’s alright. Pitt is so unapologetic in his thirst for accolades and the press give it to him. Gross. He look rough too.

    • sunny says:

      The dress was bad but she is so gorgeous that it didn’t bother me that much. Love that she and Tom coordinated colours and accessories. Andrew Garfield who I adore looked a whole mess, his suit was way too big. Man needed a tailor.

      The final was GREAT. Jealous of anyone who got to attend. Carlos, over the last year and a half has emerged as a true star in the sport. What a moment!

    • Jan90067 says:

      I was out shopping yesterday. I tried on three (seemingly cute) tops in Bloomingdales; didn’t notice they had puffed sleeves until I put them on. I’m 5’1″, 108 lbs. and they SWALLOWED me. I could’ve fit my torso in one of the top’s sleeves! It was crazy: almost ALL of the tops had puffy sleeves. Ugh. Those sleeves should not be on any outfits after the age of 10 at the oldest!

    • Louisa M says:

      Pitt really has deep connections to media. Just today, a columnist from the Torygraph posted an ass-kissing article about him after the finals of Wimbledon: I have no doubt that it was commissioned by his PR after the negative reportings of his legal mess in The Times of London and Financial Times.

  3. Kokiri says:

    Rachel what did you do to your face?!
    I don’t find them hot in the least, but I accept in in the minority with that one.

    Brad is disgusting as always.

    Love Zawe (Vod!) but that dress is terrible, & the shoes too.

    I didn’t realize Ariana was so tiny! For some reason I thought she was tall. Maybe I’m confusing her with someone else.

    • Barbara says:

      She’s *really* tiny. Maybe 5’2″ and 90 lbs soaking wet. How did I not know she was married (and to who?)?

      She apparently went to Wimbledon with Jonathon Bailey and was sitting between him and Garfield. That’s a yum sandwich. 😂

      • Fuzzy Crocodile says:

        Thank you for posting this. I felt like a gossip failure as I did not realize she was married either and had to look back at the archives.

    • Little Red says:

      I don’t know what Rachel did to her face but looking at it in Lisa Eldridge’s IG feed, it looked like she had lost a lot of weight in her face. Maybe?

  4. Eira says:

    I saw a clip on TV. I guess, you can find it on Insta easily. The clip shows Tom Hiddleston and Zawe Ashton leaving Wimbledon and he says: “I/We have to get back to our son, I’m sorry.” We know now, It’s a boy. Yay!

    • Sammie says:

      I saw that and I found it adorable… he seems to be a great father

    • Soe says:

      There’s a photo of Tom holding his son when he and Zawe were In Paris earlier this year that’s been floating around online for awhile. He’s a gorgeous little boy, looks a lot like Zawe.

  5. Belli says:

    Pitt’s social media team were working overtime for this appearance. Gross.

    • Layla says:

      I’m surprised he wasn’t interacting with William and Kate. They’d have a lot to talk about like how to emotionally and physically abuse your family members 🙄

  6. LizzieB says:

    What…. has happened to Ariana’s other leg? Is that an optical illusion or bad photoshop?

    • Eurydice says:

      It looks like she’s lifted her right foot. You can see the spikey heel just above the left shoe.

  7. Jais says:

    Zawe is gorgeous. Do not love the dress. A lot of current dresses are getting me annoyed lately.

    • Josephine says:

      I completely agree about dresses (and tops) lately. I’ve tried desperately to find some cute dresses for a long-awaited vacation and it’s so hard. I’m so, so sick of puffy shoulders, dropped shoulders, and dolman sleeves. And the vast majority of dresses cannot be worn with a bra. It is so hard to find classic and tailored clothes. Designers have gotten sooooooo lazy.

      • Concern Fae says:

        Drop shoulders are from the devil! As a larger, busty woman, they make me look eternally disheveled. They fit over larger bodies, but they don’t drape the same way they do on smaller ones. The shoulder seam ends up running unevenly across the upper arm. They are cheap to make, so they are probably here to stay.

      • Josephine says:

        @ Concern Fae – that is my issue as well! Dropped choulders are really cheap to make and even the better brands that I can’t even afford are doing the drop shoulder. Women get crap for clothes, men get clothes that actually fit them and make them look thinner and come in way more sizes.

      • HoofRat says:

        Don’t forget cutouts. Sooo many cutouts on otherwise lovely dresses, dang it!

      • North of Boston says:

        I’ve been doing one of those style box services for petite women. I gave them my measurements, so they know I’m busty. The very first box they sent had two tops out of 3 with dolman sleeves.
        I returned them with feedback – no dolman or dropped sleeves, they do not work with my body, are very unflattering etc. they are like muu muus for the upper half of your body. And because there are no seams where seams should be and the armholes are so big, it’s not like you can even get it altered to look nice.

        Just about every box I’ve gotten since has had dolman sleeves. I keep sending them back with – at this point – “ENOUGH with the dolman sleeves already!” comments.

        The latest one – finally no dolman sleeves yay! But instead they sent me a sleeveless top with giant shoulder pads and very loose armholes … which while having less fabric still has the issue of swamping the underarm to boob area, but now with more bonus bra exposure. And I wasn’t really looking to invoke a “linebacker who has ripped off their sleeves” style. Like, what is the point of that? It’s 2023, not the era of Working Girl.

        I think that designers have no idea how to make tops for people who aren’t stick thin and have full chests so they are just “ meh, forget about even trying to make a seam on the shoulders or any definition between the collarbone and hips, just make everything loose and unstructured, they won’t care, they will just be happy to cover their nakedness.

        And yeah I think I’m ready to cancel that subscription. I’ve gotten a handful of cute pieces, found a good jeans brand, but a lot of the looks are SO disappointing and the obsession with drop and dolman sleeves is annoying.

      • SomeChick says:

        drop shoulders are from the devil. I don’t think that flatters anyone. that said, there probably are people who look good in that style!

        it’s good to remember that bodies are unique and designers all design for a certain shape/silhouette. once you know what works on you, it’s so much easier to find things. I do a lot of thrifting and what I’m looking for is shape/silhouette; fit; fabric. a good silhouette in cheap(ish) fabric will look a lot better than poorly fitting silk shantung.

  8. Shawna says:

    I love Ariana’s outfit. This is a really good example of monochrome with different textures.

  9. Acha says:

    Oh my goodness King Filipe is gorgeous. No wonder William sat so far from him.

  10. BonnieT says:

    Ugh of all the classic fashion she could have worn to Wimbledon, I agree with everyone above, do not like Zawe’s dress. And she is gorgeous, definitely so many other things would look great on her!

  11. The Old Chick says:

    I don’t mind a patterned dress like that with that hem length and the low neck. It doesn’t overwhelm her. Until you get to those ghastly sleeves. However a busy dress and two (different) toned shoes and bag is not good. All the men (I don’t include BP in ‘men’) look pretty sharp.

    • Hudson Honey says:

      Zawe is beautiful, but i think she has slightly odd taste. I seem to remember her at the US Open a couple years ago and I don’t remember the specifics other than thinking 80s prom dress. I think this was slightly better.

  12. Em says:

    Wish I could see the Sussexes out and about like this, I don’t know why they’re staying indoors, it isn’t doing anything for them.

    • Snuffles says:


      They’re out and about all the time living their lives. The difference is, they aren’t required to make constant public appearances to justify their existence like the working royals.

  13. Eurydice says:

    I like Zawe’s shoes and back, if they were another outfit – but that dress is awful, no matter what the accessories.

    • Eurydice says:

      Ooops, I like her bag – but I’m sure she has a very nice back, too.

    • MsIam says:

      Yes the shoes and bag are a hit. The dress on it own is not a big miss but those shoes make it look costume-y. Maybe with more delicate shoes?

  14. Ann says:

    I really like Zawe’s dress. The bag and the shoes seem random. They sort of match his. Well Ariana got married. This doesn’t look good along with the rumors. Two years? I like her outfit a lot since I wear it regularly.

    • Sammy says:

      I liked the dress… and also everything but I have probably bad taste

    • Huckle says:

      I like her dress, bag and shoes. It’s a modern take on maybe a Gibson girl or British equivalent to that. Probably not the intent but I like her whole outfit and they make a cute couple especially as coordinated as they are.

    • Bella says:

      Love her dress and I love Ariana’s. I just think the shoes go with the outfit. I would have done a plain strappy sandal or a plain pump.

  15. Queen Meghan's Hand says:

    If the love story of Harry and Meghan were made into a prestige film or tv series, Tom and Zawe would be perfect casting.

  16. Nanea says:

    So, so happy that Alcaraz won.

    I could never stand Djocovid, no matter how good he is as a player. I hate when he gets away with smashing things, I hate him being an outspoken Serb nationalist (fascist), and I despise his anti-science stand.

    I know I am in the minority, but I’m firmly in the Tom&Zawe “had their son early in September” camp, because of how much she was showing at the BAFTAs and later at the “Mr Malcolm’s List” premiere. They’re so cute together, and were so animated.

    While I don’t mind Z’s dress, I hated the shoes, and the bag was not my favorite RL one.

    T’s best accessory was a bag of Haribo gummy bears. I somehow didn’t expect to see that in Wimbledon!

    There’s a reel in Daniel Brühl’s Insta stories of a Marvel meetup with DB, T&Z, and Andrew Garfield.

    Good to see RW and DC together, not good to see BP the abuser.

  17. Spillthattea says:

    T & Z look so happy and relaxed together. – what a nice change from all the years he attended alone. Good on them.

  18. SAS says:

    Lord, that neckline on Zawe, am I even straight? Phew. I actually love everything but the puffy sleeves, I don’t even mind the quirky accessories, I think that’s just her. The glasses are amazing, and Ariana’s were cool too.

    I like Ari’s cropped sweater but the long grey skirt is so drab, how cute would a pair of cigarette pants look? I can’t wait til she ditches the blonde, I think she’ll instantly look healthier.

  19. FHMom says:

    Mr. & Mrs. H are a beautiful couple but I don’t care for her dress. Honestly, everyone looks great, though. Everywhere I go this summer people are dressed so casually and mostly sloppily. Myself included. These photos are a treat.

  20. notasugarhere says:

    Love Rachel’s trouser suit. King Felipe looking fine as usual.

  21. Oswin says:

    Ariana looks adorable. I love her whole outfit, from the cap to the shoes.

    • Babz says:

      Her cap seems to give a lie to the supposed protocol of no hats in the Royal Box. Kate’s worn a sun hat before, but remember, Meghan was raked over the coals the first year she went with Kate for wearing her Panama hat. She was forced to carry it. More double standards…

      • Mei says:

        Ariana wasn’t sitting in the Royal Box so I think it wasn’t an issue to wear that hat

    • Bella says:

      Love her outfit! Very chic

  22. kd says:

    Yeesh – Maybe Zawe wore the voluminous dress to preempt the hate comments about her post-pregnancy body. She looks lovely.

    • LeaTheFrench says:

      Yeah, I had a similar thought. When did she give birth? I found it difficult to find the right clothes for me after each pregnancy, your body is a war zone and it keeps changing and hurting and all you want is comfort. I wore a lot of prints because if your boobs start leaking, it will be less visible. Carefully selected necklines in case one of said leaking boobs need to make an emergency appearance for a baby who’s decided he/she shall be fed, NOW. And what’s left of your pelvic floor does not need the hug of tight pants, because during the day you may laugh, sneeze, cough or anything like that, resulting in direct pressure on your pelvis, resulting in a direct pee in your pants. After a while it all goes back to normal, but until then…being fashionable may not be the primary consideration when you’re choosing your clothes in the morning.

  23. HeyKay says:

    Tom H and Zawe look terrific together, I like the photos of them walking together, you can see how nicely their outfits are similar.

    Why is Brad Pitt looking so under dressed?
    He looks dirty, unshaven and is wearing a wrinkled polo shirt.
    Most of the men are in summer suits, dress code, ya know.

    Johnathon Bailey, Bridgerton, is gorgeous.
    James Norton was also there, looking great.

  24. ncboudicca says:

    It looks like Ariana is leaning towards the guy on the other side of her, plus that oversized man’s sport jacket definitely belongs to Dude X, not Andrew Garfield, so it doesn’t really look to me like Ariana and Andrew are “together”…though that’s just me guessing, obviously.

    I was just thinking of Tom and Zawe the other day and wondering if he would come out of hiding before the Loki S2 promos start. Hooray!

    • February Pisces says:

      No Andrew isn’t with Ariana, he went with his art dealer friends who’s sitting next to him. He just happens to be sat next to Ariana who I’m assuming went with Johnathan Bailey (from Bridgerton) who’s sat on the other side of her, because they are currently shooting the Wicked movie together.

      She is one lucky girl to be sat in between my two fav guys.

      • ncboudicca says:

        Ah! Now I’m so disappointed at how the photo was cropped. He’s a handsome guy. 🙂

  25. M says:

    So could Ariana not get her roots done or something? The hat is a weird choice with the rest of the outfit, which is pretty cute.

  26. Ameerah M says:

    I love a puffy sleeve. Sorry not sorry lol. I dislike the shoes with the dress. They needed something more delicate. Tom looks as scrumptious as ever. Also – we do know one thing about their baby – its a boy! But that’s about it. Daniel and Rachel are such a sexy couple.

  27. Glamarazzi says:

    Everyone looks so glam, I love it! Weitz & Craig both in suits was particularly delightful.

    I’d never have recognized Grande in the stands – maybe it’s the hair? I guess I missed when she went blonde, but she doesn’t look like herself anymore.

  28. Well Wisher says:

    I love the dynamic of the Hiddleston/Ashton coupledom. The understand the clear demarcation between private and public.
    Wimbledon has lost its’ specialty – it is now about celebrity.
    That is okay, there is no problem inherently wrong with celebrity; except it is readily available….

  29. Mrs. Smith says:

    Zawe is beautiful and the dress would maybe work better as a solid instead of a print? Honestly, TH looks so insanely modelesque in that suit, it’s kind of unfair to critique her clothes when she’s walking next to THAT.

  30. Ameerah M says:

    People just dropped that Ariana and her husband have separated! So that explains the missing wedding ring!

    • Meg says:

      I always wondered if a private guy, non- celeb or someone not interested in being noticed, would bore her. Just a vibe I got

      • Ameerah M says:

        I just get the impression that Ariana is one of those women who doesn’t know how to be single. And as a result jumps into relationships and moves faster than she should. I mean she got married in the middle of the pandemic – they started dating in January 2020. It was a pandemic romance.

    • Ange says:

      Jeez that was quick. I’ve always thought she was bratty but she’s still so young. Hopefully she can mature, take her time and really get to know herself before she tries again.

  31. Mel says:

    I do like Zawe’s dress but it doesn’t go with the bag and shoes. I would have worn those shoes with something more tailored. As for ARianna Grande, she was sitting between Johnathan Bailey and Andrew Garfield, maybe not start gossip like she’s dating Andrew Garfield.

  32. Eggbert says:

    I just noticed the actress from Emily in Paris is sitting in front of Tom and Zawe, she plays Sylvie and I just looked her name up, Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu

  33. HeyKay says:

    Brad Pitt has had some very, very clever work done.
    He is now the living definition of
    “Pretty face. Black Heart”

    He and Guy Ritchie are at W together.
    Guy Ritchie look 100 years old.

  34. Grant says:

    Love love love Ari’s outfit. Very chic and elegant and I think the hat is cute. I hope she’s ok! Can’t wait for Wicked. Jonathan Bailey and Andrew Garfield… YUM. I kind of love Ziwe’s look? The sleeves are weird but the print is cute and summery. The purse and the shoes are phenomenal!!!

    Daniel and Rachel. HUBBA HUBBA.
