Venus Williams French Open Outfit: Love It or Loathe It?

by at . Comments

Venus Williams coasted to a 6-3, 6-3 victory against Patty Schnyder in the first round of the French Open this weekend.

But the tennis great's powerful serve and winning forehand aren't what has the online community buzzing this morning.

Instead, all talk centers around the black and red, tutu-like dress this legend wore on the court, which covered flesh-toned underwear often spotted by anyone paying close attention when Venus went for an overhead smash.

It was really more of a corset than typical tennis attire:

The part-time designer said the look is "about illusion, which represents "a lot of my motif this year."

We say this outfit could very well start flying off the shelves of our THG Style Store: readers will either want to burn it or wear it. Where do you stand?

Venus Williams' French Open fashion statement is...

 

From the front, to the side, to the revealing back: Judge this attire for yourself.

What's the big deal? She's worn these "flesh colored" shorts at other tennis events. No one ragged on Maria "Shamapova" or Anna "Hornikova" flashing their boobs and butts on the courts...and what was inappropiate about their game is that they HAD NO GAME. :-)

With a body like that she could sit on my face any time

Come on, you must admit the girl has a fine ass! Can someone admit that, please?

Takes lots of nerve in this day and time to reveal so much, but to tell the truth, I'd rather see
Serena in that outfit.

If she was white and had long blonde hair, commentators would be saying she was bringing sexy back to the courts, she'd be on the cover of sports illustrated. Like her sister, Venus is an Amazon and way to frightening for white consumption!

What attire?

I think the outfit is risque, but does it really go that far. She has on clothing!!! You can't say she might as well be naked because that would be completely different. She has nothing showing, so what is the big deal... If she was an mediocre player then it would matter, but she is 2nd to the best in the world. 1st being her sister. So you can keep hating. Do your thing Venus. Ms. Williams if your nasty...

This is totally disgusting to look at especially at this level of tennis!!! She should not be allowed to play another game in this nightgown!

This outfit should be reserved for only attractive tennis players. She kind of looks like Usain Bolt.
