Naomi Campbell served as chair of the dinner event at the Novak Djokovic Foundation's New York City gala on September 10, and Goldie Hawn and Djokovic himself who co-wielded a wooden tennis racquet on stage, as seen here. That is the gist of this star-studded event, which featured appearances by fashion editrix Anna Wintour, designers Tommy Hilfiger and Donna Karan, and an armada of models from around the world. Also in attendance were funnyman Ricky Gervais, Olympic gold-medalist swimmer Ryan Lochte, and ageless tennis stars John McEnroe and Jimmy Connors. Djokovic and Jelena Ristic were, of course, omnipresent at the affair, which happened on the heels of the London edition of the foundation's fundraiser. Hawn and Campbell were also spotted at that event across the pond, now nearly de-facto members of the Novak camp.

Here's another series of looks at what these famous folks wore to the gala, which benefits Djokovic's organization seeking better opportunities for children. What was your favorite look from the event? And how adorable is Ms. Ristic, who serves as executive director of the foundation?
