In yet another tennis fashion disaster of the Venus Williams kind (ahem!), the American player has got fashion critics wagging about her new on-court outfit. Here’s what it looks like:
The outfit is a very low neck sheer lace jumpsuit (or playsuit, as some would say) with a gold zipper in front, crest on the upper left, coordinated innerwear, and cut-out sleeves and back. Accessories are dangling earrings and a superthin belt.
And then the lady says:
“Right now I’m really trending towards simplicity. I’m not sure why. It’s just how I feel right now. Everything is getting more simple.”
We’re not anti-trends, and while we think a lace jumpsuit is actually quite sporty cool, we don’t like:
a) Its presence on the tennis court (sheer is a look ALL sportspersons should avoid.)
b) Trying to make making it work too hard with too many trends
c) The cut-outs are a bit too glam to be on a tennis court
Not sure how long it will take us to get over this one.
Sephora coming to India?
Ladies, we’re not sure when this will happen, but the corporate grapevine has it that LVMH is in talks with Reliance Brands to bring Sephora (one of our favourite beauty stores) to India. (FYI: LVMH owns Louis Vuitton, Sephora and a gazillion other fashion and beauty brands). They’re even scouting for store locations!
It’s been a while since Reliance Brands jumped on to the retail bandwagon, tying up with foreign brands and retailers interested in paving their path to India. Cases in point: Diesel, Steve Madden and Timberland.
No news yet of how long this will take to materialise (if it does at all), so keep your fingers crossed! Meanwhile, here’s couple of photos of my recent Sephora makeup haul:

Awww! You got to visit Sephora?? So lucky!
At this dress of williams is much better than that black & red lacy lingerie dress she wore last time, with flesh colored tights – that took me quite a few days to get over – just horrendous!
Yup, I visited Sephora! My first visit to the store was in July 2005.. been a fan since. 🙂 And you’re right, this dress isn’t as bad as the others Venus has worn.. just not so great for sports!
