MELBOURNE, Australia -- Forget all the pre-tournament press conferences, practice schedules and draw analysis. The real question everyone wants to know is: What did Maria Sharapova wear at the IMG player party?

The event, held at the Crown Casino in Melbourne, took place on the eve of the Australian Open. That meant nearly all the attendees came from the top half of the men's draw and the bottom half of the women's draw, which do not play until Tuesday. So, no, you probably won't see a party selfie of Sharapova and Serena Williams.

See how everyone cleaned up -- or didn't, as was the case for Bernard Tomic -- below.
