This year's Wimbledon was basically a smaller-scale preview of what the London Olympics will look like in just a few weeks: Cloudy skies, lots of British royals, and fabulously awkward interactions between athletes and celebrities. Case in point being Prince William's precarious air-kiss with retired tennis player Steffi Graf, which came thisclose to becoming something else entirely. Also in the crowd: the Murdochs, Lara Stone, Anna Wintour, the Beckhams, the Middleton family, and other folks who we'll surely see lots more of at the Olympic Games. After all, watching famous people watch sports is sometimes (and by that we mean usually) much more interesting than watching the athletes themselves.
Prince William and Steffi Graf
It all started innocently enough ...
Prince William and Steffi Graf
Swing and a miss!
Rachel McAdams and Michael Sheen
Rachel looks very proper in her courtside whites; Michael is now dear to our heart because he is wearing mint-colored pinstripes and a polka-dot tie.
She's looking rather somber all bundled up like that, but she's probably the only one there who's actually warm enough.
Pippa's peplum is designed by Project D; it covers up her bottom, which is really too bad.
She's courtside at Wimbledon and wearing fresh Prada — of course she's beside herself with joy.
David and Victoria Beckham
David Beckham didn't qualify for the British Olympic football team this year, so this couple might steer clear of the Games. Or here's a better idea: They should go anyway, and attend lots of events. No one will even notice (or care) that he didn't play as long as he keeps looking adorable and takes his shirt off at least once.
Looking golden at the 2012 Winners Ball.
She's keeping an eagle eye on Will in case Steffi puts the moves on him again.
Real men wear pink ribbons.
David Walliams and Lara Stone
Lara's been wearing some disappointingly baglike dresses lately. Hopefully she'll amp things up for the Olympics.
Wendi Deng and Rupert Murdoch
They can't hide underneath their matching straw fedoras.
Carole and Michael Middleton
Papa Middleton: "Well, that was a crappy shot." Mama Middleton: "Who cares? Our daughter's Kate Middleton."
