Venus Williams made a striking style statement while attending Lacoste‘s 90th anniversary party in New York City on Saturday, opting for a semi-sheer ensemble from the brand.
Williams embraced a black net jumpsuit with white bordering along the torso and collar. The star athlete completed her outfit with pointed-toe white pumps.
Williams’ outfit was presented by Lacoste creative design director Pelagia Kolotouros. The tennis athlete has been a global brand ambassador for the sportswear-centered company since 2022.
Williams styled her hair into ultra-long tresses with black root detail. The tennis player is the latest celebrity to embrace the sheer trend, which has been seen at the 2023 Oscars, the 2023 BET Awards and New York Fashion Week.
Williams is fresh off of competing in the 2023 U.S. Open, where she was beaten by Greet Minnen with a score of 6-1 6-1. For the match, which was during the first women’s singles round, Williams wore a pink tank top and capri pant set in powder pink from her own clothing line EleVen by Venus Williams.
“Women are the definition of what it means to be a superhero,” Williams told WWD in 2021.
Williams still stands as the record-breaker for the most main draw appearances at the U.S. Open in the Open era (among both male and female players), with this year marking her 24th main draw appearance.
