We were all furious on Marion Bartoli's behalf when she was cruelly branded 'not a looker' by BBC reporter John Inverdale, so it was truly awesome to see the Wimbledon ladies' champion looking every bit the star of the show at a post-tournament gala dinner last night. Sporting a fishtail plait, high-waisted dress and a winning smile, the 28-year-old French player was clearly still glowing from her recent victory...

Wimbledon 2013 ladies champion Marion BartoliWe were also delighted to see that Bartoli had chosen to stay true to her French roots, with a pair of striking Christian Louboutin high heeled booties setting off her look: the boots made her appear well over 6 feet tall, which probably made her tower over any passing reporters who wanted to have a go!  

Bartoli joined other elite tennis players including Andy Murray and a host of Hollywood stars such as Kate Hudson at the charity event - which was hosted by Murray's own arch rival, Novak Djokovic at London's Roundhouse. Djokovic has already raised over £1.2 million for needy children in his native Serbia with his charitable donations and events.
