FASHION FIX: Venus and EleVen dress on the rise, reveals shocking pink shorts to the world

Venus Williams had her own version of an Aussie Open surprise today. The 7-time Grand Slammer played near flawless tennis in her 6-3, 6-3 defeat of German Angelique Kerber in the tourney's first round. She hit 7 aces and only 2 doubles, 28 winners against 20 errors, and made 20 of 28 net approaches.

Now I don't need to discuss this EleVen by Venus Williams dress since she's been wearing this style seemingly since she turned pro (what's that, 15 years?). Anyway, I'm liking the spritely lemon yellow color but LOVING the sneaky shocking pink shorts underneath. She's like walking sorbet.

Can V be feeling any more confident about her game, and herself, right now? The women's draw should be very worried.

PS - I'm still wondering where V will be selling these duds since she's still wearing them even though former partner, Steve & Barry's, has been completely liquidated. My vote still goes to Target.

  1. Minute Maid Pink Lemonade comes to mind, aside from that - I'm tired of seeing the exact same dress over and over and over again.

  2. The knickers are the same color as her US Open 2008 day outfit, and it is the same color palette. I like it. I really hoping that her line goes to Target and she stays away from Walmart.

  3. I never noticed the shocking pink shorts at the US Open - I should be looking up her dress more. Oh well.

    *makes note in diary*

  4. Its a beautiful dress and it looks amazing on her but Im beginning to tire of seeing her in it. I want something new. At least she broke her yellow outfit curse.

  5. Hahaha.."minute maid" thats a good one.
    Or did she color her cloth with Sharpie's??

  6. Let's just hope that Roger Rasheed doesn't see the second picture.

  7. This is so 90's! Tee hee. But can't say I hate it!

  8. Guess she got the inspiration from Petrova?
