on day three: EleVen, part two

August 29, 2007

Tennis fashion grande dame Venus Williams showed another outfit from EleVen, her clothing collaboration with retailer Steve & Barry’s.

She wore this white and periwinkle number for her second-round U.S. Open match against Ioana Raluca Olaru of Romania, who she easily beat 6-4, 6-2. The short shorts — reminiscent of her Wimbledon outfit — didn’t quite have the same oomph as her first round dress.

But we like the top with the poofy sleeves, and we love that she’s forged out on her own to design this line.

What do you think of Venus’ Day Three look? Tell us!

fashion preview: venus’ u.s. open outfits

August 23, 2007

Funny that this morning I was wondering what Reebok was making for Venus to wear at this year’s U.S. Open. As you might know, Venus’ crazy sponsorship deal — which paid $40 million over five years starting in 2000 — wasn’t renewed because of all her injuries (poor thing). But she had worked out a deal that paid her to wear these short shorts at Wimbledon.

Now she’s bounced back by partnering up with Steve & Barry’s for her clothing line EleVen (at an announcement that overshadowed the Masha/Nike red dress junket yesterday, I might add). Venus will wear some of pieces on the court in Flushing Meadows, including this dress and $15 (!) pair of shoes above.

I think that color will look good on her. And I LOVE the collar on that sleeveless top. Brava!

Bonus round: CNBC’s Darren Rovell did a great interview with Howard Schacter, Steve & Barry’s Chief Partnerships Officer. Read it here.
