Emma Raducanu stuns in floral gown as she attends Dior Christmas installation at Harrods


Emma Raducanu was effortlessly elegant in a chic floral gown as she attended the Dior Christmas installation at Harrods in London today.

The tennis star, 19, who is Dior’s British ambassador, stunned in the sophisticated dress, which featured an ankle sweeping A-line skirt and cut out sleeves along the shoulders. 

Looking typically stylish, the US-Open winner teamed the look with fishnet tights and black strappy shoes, accentuated with a chunky statement heel.

Adding a touch of glitz to her glamorous look, she accessorised with an ornate cross necklace, golden bangles, and a series of rings. 

Emma opted for a rosy make-up look, with lashings of blush and a cherry red lipstick. Her chestnut tresses were styled in loose waves as she grinned at the event, surrounded by beautiful festive decorations.

Emma and other attendees – including Pietro Beccari, Dior’s CEO and chairman, was also snapped at the event – as they posed in front of the designer’s installation at Harrods. 

The décor was comprised of golden lights and Christmas trees adorning the glamorous shop’s entrance.

Speaking to British Vogue, Pietro said the display is aimed at ‘evoking emotions and dreams’.

‘Harrods is perhaps the most iconic and legendary retail location, not only in the UK, but globally,’ he added. ‘And our presence there means an incomparable level of visibility with an international impact.’ 

Meanwhile Thursday night also saw a dramatic revival of Britain’s Billie Jean King Cup team – which Emma this week sat out due to injury.

Barely 24 hours after looking sure to go out, GB are into the weekend’s semi-finals after pulling off a shock 3-0 victory over Spain that puts them into the last four for the first time in this event since 1981.

The team topped the three-team group by getting the only result to make that possible, beating higher ranked opponents in singles and then sealing the doubles rubber amid emotional celebrations.

Unheralded debutantes Alicia Barnett and Olivia Nicholls defeated Moldova-born Aliona Bolsova and partner Rebeka Masarova 7-6 6-1 in an impressive display of nerve.

Only in the 12-nation competition via the wildcard given to hosts, they now face Australia in the daytime on Saturday, having looked rank outsiders after their opening defeat against Kazakhstan on Tuesday.

Captain Anne Keothavong, her selections vindicated, was full of praise for the inexperienced pair she had chosen.

‘Even when we were 2-0 down to Kazakhstan their attitude was infectious,’ she said. ‘ It was amazing to see everything unfold, knowing we had to win 3-0 and the girls smashing it by not dropping a set is just unreal.

‘I’m so proud of the team, the spirit has been great. We were fortunate to be in this competition, it’s incredible.’ 

It comes as Great Britain will face Spain and hosts Australia at the new mixed team United Cup next month but will again be without star athlete Emma.

The event sees the ATP and WTA Tours come together, with each tie comprising two men’s singles matches, two women’s singles and one mixed doubles.

Emma, who is sitting out this week’s Billie Jean King Cup Finals through injury, has not entered and is set to play a regular tour event instead.
