Fashion: Tennis Style

With the French Open currently underway, tennis star Venus Williams continues to raise a lot of eyebrow raises when it comes to her fashion on the court. In a recent interview, V dished on the how the outfits for her line EleVen come about. "During the design process I'm nervous about, okay, is that going to move and get in the way of my racquet? So when the dress comes and it doesn't, then I'm excited. I try to represent what I think my personality is on the court. The second part is sometimes you just dream it up. Sometimes you can see a dress and say, Hey, I really like those slits, so let me put that in my tennis dress. Or I'm dying to do lace. How can we do that on the court and make it work?" She even touched on that risqué outfit that caused a commotion off the court during the French Open: "Lace has never been done before in tennis, and I've been wanting to do it for a long time. So finally, you know, I've done lace. It's fun to wear, obviously. For me, it's fun to design something that seems to be so successful."
