Venus Williams stepped out in style this past Saturday and impressed fans with her glamorous camel-colored dress.
The tennis champion took to Instagram to show off her eye-popping look. Sporting the floor-length outfit that put her cleavage on display, Venus flaunted her long legs in an inset thigh-high split.
She accessorized merely with a pair of flat gold sandals and wore her hair long and free with a side parting.
“Faking it actually works.”
Social media users flocked to Venus’ comment section to rave over her outfit. “Looking like a beautiful Greek goddess,” said one person.
“You glow, girl! Beautiful inside and out! Keep shining Venus!”
“Wow, Venus. Looking Fabulous,” chimed in a third user, apparently in awe of the athlete’s overall look.
Venus, 38, was the keynote speaker at Create & Cultivate's Vision Summit in Miami on Saturday. Her Q&A session was moderated by Create & Cultivate's CEO, Jaclyn Johnson, who described Venus in glowing words.
“I grew up idolizing Venus -- one of the best athletes of all time, a champion for equal pay, and now [expletive] entrepreneur,” Jaclyn wrote on Instagram. “Was such an honor to share the stage with her.”
Venus’ clothing brand, “EleVen” was launched in 2007 and specializes in the design of female sporting outfits. She shared the vision of her brand with the audience:
“We're all about being healthy and empowering women to be their best. When you're healthy you can give more.”
The seven-time Grand Slam Singles winner also revealed her secret to success: believing in herself. Venus advises that you “believe in yourself even when you don't” because “faking it actually works.”
Although Venus and her younger sister have battled it out numerous times on the court, they continue to be best buddies. When asked to complete the sentence, “A woman whose career I admire is...” Venus wasted no time responding;
And even though her sister also has a clothing line -- “Serena” -- Venus does not see it as competition. “As a sister, when they're doing something it's your own success too,” she said.
Venus recently unveiled a “Morning Glory” collection for her brand. The colorful line incorporates fishnet inserts into workout gear, but “EleVen” also carries solid colors for people who do not fancy busy prints.
