Venus Describes Inspiration Behind Her Dress

"Oh, the outfit is inspired by Alice in Wonderland. Yeah, don't laugh. But it's kind of about a surprise, because when Alice goes down the hole, the rabbit hole, she finds all these things that are so surprising.

"This outfit is about having a surprise in tennis, a dress, and kind of, you know, showing some skin and then just having a print. Prints don't happen that often in tennis. So it's called the Wonderland dress. It was fun." Venus Williams describes that dress.

Venus needs to wake up from her dream and face the reality that such outfits should only be worn in dreams.

Venus nees to remember that the queen of England is also the queen of Australia and accordingly show the same curtesy and respect to the Aussies as she does to the hoity toity Limeys at Wimbledon.

Re: Venus Describes Inspiration Behind Her Dress

OK I get that you don't like the dress but jeez quit hammering on about it. There's been like 5 threads on it already and this quote has been posted in all of them.

I doubt that everything you've worn has been a fashion hit.

If she insists on wearing it again, she should go back down that rabbit hole and never come out.

Re: Venus Describes Inspiration Behind Her Dress

I miss those days when tennis was about tennis alone and not stories behind dresses.

But I'm old, I guess it comes with that.

Does she have cellulite on the front side of her thigh???

Just like the abundance of Holocaust movies, books and stories after the second world war, multiple threads like these serve as grim reminders of the monstrosities that humans are capable of. A lesson that history should not be repeated. NEVER AGAIN!

I think these threads are just an excuse for some cowardly haters like bobbynorwich to come out of the woodworks and insult/say what they want about Venus. You never heard words like "whore" and "hooker" when Dementieva came out with those Yonex plastic bags.

Sadly, I think the rabbit hole would try to spit her out.

That dress was an abomination.

Steffi Graf was part of a youth tennis group that was studied from age 12 and then followed, and the scientists called her "the perfect talent" even then. In addition to her many tennis-specific skills, her aerobic capacity was on par with the best distance runners in Europe. --- David Epstein, The Sports Gene

Yes she does, the inappropriate length of her dresses only serves to showcase the effects of time. Lower the hemlines to mid thigh at least, you're 30 for god's sake!!

When a woman is in their 30's that is when they are in their sexual prime. Venus feels sexy & it shows in her styles. Not saying at all that this dress was a hit because it wasn't but 30 is not old and Venus has the body to wear those sexy cloths, she just needs to make sure the design is never like this again.
