It's like she took a white potato sack and cut the sleeves and the back out. She looks trashy and tacky but it is not unusual coming from her. AELTC needs to do something about this year though.

Pretty much the ugliest thing ever seen on a tennis court :lol: It's like a white pillowcase with a few slashes in it.

I can't watch. It's actually the most disgusting dress (Wimbledon or not) that I've ever seen. I can just imagine Regina George telling Venus that she "loves" it.

I was quite shocked when I first saw it but now I quite like it. Very 70's/early 80's inspired. I just like the fact that she pushes boundaries with her outfits and doesnt wear the same old boring stuff. It might not be to everyone's liking but at least its a talking point unless the boring stuff that 90% of the other girls wear.

Akgul is quite boyish, but she has a nice smile.

I really dont think it's that bad. Its basically a jumpsuit/playsuit. Throw on some heels and she would almost wear it out. There have been much worse outfits. People need to expand their minds a little and think outside the square. Tennis outfits dont have to all be the same old talk top with a razor back or polo top.

I think Beth had one similar dress with that style, right?:scratch:

ANyway, I am neutral towards it. That upper part of the dress was a little 'over', kind of like a gown-ish dress, but I actually think it's rather elegant.:shrug:

Ill-fitting pillowcase, IMO. Just has zero fashion sense, poor Venus. And it appears no one has the guts to tell her.

duhcity
Jun 20th, 2011, 12:10 PM
I really like it! lol.
Agreed it doesn't fit well. If it was a little tighter, and cut under the arms.
Seeing it a little more now. It really is too big on top. Especially in the front. And she actually put a dark brown panel in the top part of the opening on the back

What kind of fabric is that? Looks light weight but not sweat friendly.

Either way, Venus wins with this outfit. We're all looking at it and talking about it.

VishaalMaria

All credit to Venus Williams for having the confidence to wear something that will show her legs and ass off!

I actually kind of like it. From the top to the waste I think it's very regal. The bottom half doesn't really fit her well and gives her body an awkward shape. If she would have just made it turn into a form-fitting skirt, I think it would have been :hearts:

The sleeves and fabric print are very feminine and pretty IMO.

Well if this thread proves one thing, it's that there is no accounting for taste.

That and observer bias is a very strong force. For those of you who "like" this outfit, save your breath. You will never convince me that you would have liked it on a player you disliked.

I love all these fashion consultants here :rolleyes: She designed her version of the romper which is the fashion right now. The outfit may not be to everyone's taste but it doesn't warrant descriptions such as disgusting. Venus has always been unconventional. I don't know why people won't accept that? Stop over exaggerating people.

She could come out there and play in a burlap sack, as long as she wins, that is what matters to me.

I can see a lot of '60s to '70s influence in Venus' outfit. From some of the comments here its easy to see how ignorant some people are.

It may not be the kind of thing one would expect to see on a tennis court but clearly Venus will wear whatever she wants.

She should've been rocking a big afro with it.

This is just your opinion and because of that it doesn't make your statement true.. Who are you to determine such a thing? I don't see anyone falling over themselves defending the dress but if someone likes it who are you to determine why?

It might not be to everyone's liking but at least its a talking point unless the boring stuff that 90% of the other girls wear.

I totally agree on this. Sure her outfits may not be the most exciting to look at, but she's always trying something different. I love that she's not dressing the same way as the rest of the tour. I know I'm in the minority when I say that I actually thought this outfit was a nice change, and 100x better than what we all saw in Australia. She's a grown woman with her own money, so when it comes to fashion, she can do what she pleases, without caring what anyone thinks. Most importantly, she won her match and played well. That's what really matters.

I love all these fashion consultants here :rolleyes: She designed her version of the romper which is the fashion right now. The outfit may not be to everyone's taste but it doesn't warrant descriptions such as disgusting. Venus has always been unconventional. I don't know why people won't accept that? Stop over exaggerating people.

She could come out there and play in a burlap sack, as long as she wins, that is what matters to me.

GO VENUS!

You're definitely right. Apparently a lot of people don't get that the winning is what counts the most, not the outfit.

The idea behind it is fine, but it doesn't fit properly and it's pretty unflattering.

Exactly. I get the concept, but the execution is flawed. Loose vs tight is out of proportion. Otherwise it's not that bad.

She played well today tho' :)

I can see a lot of '60s to '70s influence in Venus' outfit. From some of the comments here its easy to see how ignorant some people are.

It may not be the kind of thing one would expect to see on a tennis court but clearly Venus will wear whatever she wants.

She should've been rocking a big afro with it.

Hell yeah! :yeah:

Fabric and fit could be better, though. It's very retro and modern with the zipper. I wouldn't mind if she designed something basic, though. :shrug:

Venus wears not what we deem fashion but what she deems fashion. Everyone needs to just be glad she is back (except the hatas of course) but if its what Venus loves then good for her. U don't have to wear it, I don't have to wear it. Venus has to wear it.I am sure some of the things we wear is not to Venus's liking. Thats why we have minds of our own. Venus is not wearing it to appease the public. she is wearing it to appease herself. Remember that. Welcome back Venus and I like it but again it's Venus's oppinion that matters most.

:lol: some of the comments in here are great...although some of you need to be more creative! That outfit should inspire hundreds of jokes.

I have no idea what it is...maybe she's hoping some billowing will distract her opponents or something? However, it looks kinda good (scratch that, not good per so but interesting) when she's serving - like a butterfly or something (when caught in stills at least). Anyway, she's my fav so I'll take the positives:

1. It gets people talking.
2. It's definitely not boring.
3. It harks back to vintage fabrics and cuts but is definitely modern.
4. It grabs some attention for her designs (though it challenges the axiom that any publicity is good publicity!)

Any I'm glad of the routine win! Onwards and upwards Venus!

Edit:

5. I like the cut on the shoulder.
6. There's something goddess-y about it (and I will forever love the Wimbledon 08 goddess dress!). Put a golden lace belt around the waist and she could be Athena or Artemis out on a hunt!

People are not use to difference. I like the outfit. I think when she was playing it moved with her play making it sometimes unflattering in some shots. But it is not a boring outfit in the least. I love the white and Gold and a shorts jumpsuit. I love it. It is creative and to those who don't like it then that is ur choice but by no means is it a hideous horror many are making it out to be. on a scale of 1-10 I would rate it an 7 not a 10 because I would love to see it as a halter style. woa that would be on fire but I still love this.it is different and unique for the sometimes boring AELA

Williams made a statement not only with her tennis but with her fashion sense - wearing a one-piece playsuit which exposed some of her back. The outfit featured cutout sleeves, a deep V neckline and a gold belt wrapped around the waist.

"It's a jumper,'' Williams said. "Jumpers are very 'now,' as is lace. The shoulders have a lot of draping. It's a kind of trendy dress. It's fun. The back is a like a cutout or peekaboo. I'm always trying to do something different and fun.''

Finally saw the match - outfit looked alright to me. So did her tennis.

Don't really get what all the fuss is about since Venus has worn far worse.

I like the concept. I think she could tighten it up in areas and it would be great.

I agree with the poster(s) that said it looks better in pictures than on tv. Before ESPN replayed Venus's match, I saw the pics in this thread and thought "that outfit is great, whats the fuss about?) but on tv it looks kind of funny. The huge billowy open back of the top especially is pretty awkward and it makes Venus look alot bigger than she usually looks but overall, I still think it's not nearly as bad as alot of people are acting like it is. I always appreciate Vee's interesting outfits though. I love that crazy stuff, even the pie dress:lol:
Also agree that heels, skirt in place of shorts and a fro would really bring the whole look together. But playing tennis in heels seems unlikely;)
