You thought that there can't be anything worse in the world of tennis fashion than Maria Sharapova's dress for Australian Open 2010? Well, after this Aussie Open, I bet you changed your mind. Last year Venus dazzled us with a skin-colored panties. This year she prepared even better surprise - the same panties with tummy-revealing yellow top, paired with a printed skirt.
Venus said in an interview that the outfit was inspired by Alice in Wonderland:
"It's kind of about a surprise, because when Alice goes down the hole, the rabbit hole, she finds all these things that are so surprising".
England cricketer Graeme Swann called the outfit "the worst outfit ever seen on a tennis court". Swann was quoted in his Twitter as saying that Williams, "looks like a cheese and onion slice".
Her first round blue figure-hugging dress with a zipper was another unpractical outfit which required constant alterations. Every time Venus raced the court, the zipper kept lifting up at the front and she was continually pulling it down.
Actually it becomes understandable why the pieces of EleVen brand worn by Venus are not available for general sale... Just nobody would buy them...
