Williams felt the need to explain her outfit at the Australian Open, and to explain that yes, she is wearing underwear.
“The whole idea is just an illusion, and illusion is that I’m wearing like a deep V-neck,” she said.
“Obviously, the most effective part of the illusion are the slits. Then the idea was to wear shorts that were like the same color as my skin.”
“So it works very well apparently.”
Venus Williams on her designs:
“This is completely my design…” she said. “When I design, I just try to stay true to me and just try to express who I am in the designs.
“I think I’m fashion-forward, but at the same time, I think I’m really classical. Anything I wear on the court probably you could wear 20 years from now.”
