We're still in the early rounds of the French Open and these are the days when anything can happen. So it comes as no surprise to me that before I even had a chance to say something about how much I LIKE Venus Williams' French Open dress, she's already out of the tournament!
Venus lost in the second round to Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska, going down 6-2, 6-3. But the good news for Venus is that by winning in the first round, she has pretty much guaranteed herself a spot in the Olympics this summer. See how everything ties into the Olympics?
So what about her dress? As you know, I have spent many a blog post questioning what is going on with Venus in the fashion department. Here's a sample post on this topic that gives you an idea of my feelings: Wimbledon Is Back! . . . As Is Venus' Appalling Fashion Sense. Or how about this one: Tennis Fashion Fix: Venus Continues To Baffle Me.
Anyway. A few months ago something changed about Venus' Eleven line. I don't know who is behind the designs now – maybe Venus herself. But suddenly they look pretty great. Check out this collage of tennis outfits, etc. that even I would consider wearing:
Okay, yes, it helps if you have the tall, lanky, skinny body of a ranked tennis professional. But still – these are cute! If you want to see the entire collection, including her line for men, visit her very well-done website: elevenbyvenus.com.
Conclusion – I'm sad to see Venus go but I'm sure we'll see her plenty at Wimbledon and, right after that, the Olympics!
