Fashion Faux Pas: Venus Williams at the French Open

Venus-headshot Venus, everyone was watching you anyway.

So you look at this picture and you think, hey, cute dress! Unique colors, interesting boning, kind of whorehouse-ish, but in a good way.

And then you see this:

Venus-1

And this:

And you just start to think that maybe--on the tennis court at least--function should trump fashion.

That is just awful.

Oh good lord!

OMG.

This will make me sound like a lame old fart, but OMG I HAAAAAAAAAAAAATE what is happening with tennis "fashion"

HATE.

When I was growing up, we weren't allowed on the court unless our shirts were COLLARED and STARK WHITE. Now we're pretending to be naked under our skirts? STOP IT VENUS.

she couldn't have made them RED or BLACK?! Shit...

Wait, how is that not functional?

Old-school tennis whites scream WASP-y country club to me. I can see where Williams might not be eager to perpetuate that stereotype.

Nobody is going to mistake this strong, freakishly talented woman for a sexpot whore. She even designed this thing herself. I say let her wear what she wants; she has earned it.

I'd say it's unorthodox at best! I can agree to a *certain* point about freedom of choice and not perpetuating WASPy stereotypes, but that should not stop one from wearing proper underpants :P

Eliza

Buns of steel.

Dawn

My first impression? Holy Shit, she went commando at the French Open! Then I figured that they probably wouldn't care because they, after all, are French.

I have no problem with the fashion, she can share whatever she wants. Except those straps cannot be comfortable while serving. You'd think she would at least design a x back for the straps.
