Back to From Red Carpet to Your Closet: Venus Williams
#1 The Dress
Of course, while we love the shiny sequins, that isn't always appropriate for every event. However, a flattering cut is ALWAYS in fashion, and that, more than anything else, is what makes this dress such a winner. The neckline shows off a bit of cleavage, but by having the lines go nearly straight up and down, Venus' shoulders aren't made to look too wide. The waistline gives a nice, smooth transition into an A-line skirt, so her muscular thighs aren't pushing against any fabric. And, the hem is short enough to show off her fabulous calves. She's worked hard for that body, and this is a perfect way to show it off.
