Um, What In The Hell Was Venus Williams Wearing In Her Opening Wimbledon Match?

The heck? What in tarnations is that fashion fail? It looks like something that would be appropriate apparel for after-concert shower attire for members of Parliament-Funkadelic. I’m willing to bet that Bootsy Collins would become insane with jealously if he ever got a peek at this little number.

But alas, instead of donning this outfit for an impromptu post-shower version of “One Nation Under A Groove,” Venus opted instead to debut this outfit from her eleVen clothing line during her dominating first round match against 97th-ranked Akgul Amanmuradova of Uzbekistan, who Venus easily defeated 6-3, 6-1.

The press had a veritable field day bemoaning and lambasting Venus’ apparent lack of fashion sense, but Williams disagreed, referring to her outfit as “trendy” and adding that “[j]umpers are very now, as is lace.” Huh. I guess I’ll have to take her word for it.
