Re: The EleVen Dresses Museum

Me too I couldn't understand why it was just on one leg. But that look would work IMO.

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

Forgot the Tye Dye Dress. Had it originally, but must have edited it out by mistake.

I think something in your subconscious made you forget that one.

I thought this dress wud have looked soooooo much better without the weird random flap things on the side... Or even if they went all around the bottom.

Me three. And I agree knee high socks or not it would have worked. That is a really nice outfit and colour combo.

Re: The EleVen Dresses Museum

It'd be cool if we had names for all her dresses. We usually call them whatever she says about them in her interviews. We can change the names as well if you don't like my choices.

Some names
2007 US Open Collection - US Open, Seoul, Tokyo, Bangkok.
The Goddess Dress - The name we've all come to love.
The Doubles Nightgown - Looks like a nightgown and was doubles.
American Spirit Dress - Venus draped the Red, White and Blue for the Olympics.
The Green with Venus Envy Dress - The book Venus Envy and then the dress is green, and we all know bitches be envious of Vee, so green with envy.
The Tye Dye Dress - Venus brought out the nice tye dye dress for mid 2009.
The Strappy Dress - Venus in the beginning of Wimbledon, said that the dress has straps, hence calling it the Strappy dress
"Bareness and Illusion" Dress - It showed bareness and illusion as she said
The Red Can-Can Dress - The red can-can corset dress.
Ooh LaLace, the Black Can-Can Dress - It is the Black Can-Can Dress, and Oooh lala is very French saying
"Simply The Best" Lace Shimmy Dress - Dress is influenced by Tina Turner, and title is a play on words of her song, "(Simply) the Best", and it is a lace shimmy dress.
The Tide Winning Dress - Won Tide
Firework Celebration Dress - She said it is Celebration and fireworks
The Zipper from Down Under Dress - said the main focus is on the zipper, which starts at the bottom, and was in Australia hence Down Under.
The "Alice in Wonderland" Surprise Dress - She said it is about Alice Wonderland and the surprises when Alice fell down the whole.

Need names
5 2007 US Open Dresses.
Blue, Pink and Brown Dresses - 2008 Australian Open, Doha, Memphis, Bangalore, Miami, Rome.
Pink Tanktop - 2008 Bangalore.
2008 Roland Garros, Stuttgart.
Plain White Dress with some Yellow and Pink - 2008 US Open, Stuttgart, Zurich, 2009 Australian Open (Doubles), Dubai, Acapulco.
2009 Roland Garros, Stanford
2009 US Open, Tokyo, Beijing.
Leather Dress - 2010 US Open
2011 Wimbledon
2011 US Open

I would call that one, Yellow Ribbon Angel Dress. But that title is unsatisfactory even to me.

But about this one:

Quote:
Leather Dress - 2010 US Open
Was it really leather? The one she worr first round right? I thought it was Satin or silk (probably polyester but keep that quiet.)

I'd call it Black Satin/Silk/Leather Dream Dress! [Delete materials as appropriate]. The titles a bit dreamy, but what can I say, I'm a dreamer.

Re: The EleVen Dresses Museum

I went back into interviews and 2010 Wimbledon, she said she was inspired by Tina Turner and Lace, so I'll try to mix those 2 into a title

VENUS WILLIAMS: Here it's all about white. There is no illusion this time. My dress was inspired by Tina Turner. So, you know, still had the lace motif. I think it's just a fun, elegant dress.

Q. How inspired by her?

VENUS WILLIAMS: Tina Turner? I love her. I love Tina Turner. Obviously, she's just an amazing, amazing artist, just a survivor. She reinvented herself. Plus she looks great. I've loved her forever. So the dress is really inspired by her.



And I believe the Leather dress was said to be faux leather.
