Yea, Nay, or Eh? Venus Williams Can Cancan
At the French Open this weekend, Venus Williams scored an easy win over her opponent, Switzerland’s Patty Schnyder. But victory on the field of fashion didn’t come quite so easily. Venus played in a lace-embellished bustier-style dress from her own line, EleVen. Maybe it was the Paris setting, but the dress smacks of the Moulin Rouge, and not, we’d have to say, in the best possible way. Short even for tennis togs (see left for proof) and disconcertingly at odds with Venus’ athletic figure, the whole outfit feels like a bit of a non to us. Venus told the L.A. Times that her look was “about illusion,” which is “a lot of my motif this year.” What do you think? Is this an illusion worth seeing?
