When it comes to 2010 tennis fashion and Venus Williams, the leitmotif throughout the season was a lifting bottom part of dresses. Venus apparently felt like showing off her booty this year, as she herself is the creator of these EleVen designs.
I like the EleVen dresses which combined black and red with sexy lingerie-inspired look. Very unique, different from other brands, you could immediately tell it was EleVen. The Roland Garros dress looks cute, with a combination of ballet innocence and sexy lace. But, there's a big "but", I like the dress when it's still!
In action it was the biggest disaster of Roland Garros, evidenced below.
What possessed Venus to wear that?
And you could see her black thong underneath these nude shorts. Disaster!
At the US Open Venus sported numerous EleVen outfits, and there were some that I would nominate for worst tennis clothes of the season.
Look at the photo below. What is that? It's just plain ugly and cheap, be it black or pink.
The dresses look horrible, but when you get to see their back, then you really start to feel sick.
The outfit below Venus also wore at the US Open, and while I would normally say it's nothing special, under the current circumstances it's cute. Just for comparison, check out Venus' lines from 2008 and 2009, you could pick out some nice pieces.
What do you think of Venus' 2010 wardrobe-wise? Do you like her provocative and attention-grabbing look or would you like her to undertake major changes in 2011?
Our readers Phaura and Charles Toye asked me to do the retrospection of Venus' 2010 outfits. So what do you have to say, Phaura and Charles?
