This is a first: I like Venus’ dress

The impossible has happened: Venus Williams has come out with a dress I actually like. Let me explain…I like the dress as a piece of clothing but not for the tennis courts.  When it comes to tennis apparel, you want visually interesting yet simple and sporty.  Venus’ dress is neither simple nor sporty but it is visually interesting.  And I actually like it.  I like it as a fun dress to wear to some function I will probably never attend but I do like it. I feel like I shouldn’t like it, but I do.  It is, as Diane Von Furstenburg put it on a recent episode of “Project Runway All Stars”, forbidden fruit. I like the colors, the cap sleeves, and the black trim in just the right places.
