Venus Williams Causes Stir With Lace Corset Outfit at the French Open

Cool or Not: Venus Williams's French Open Outfit

Venus Williams
raised a few eyebrows at the French Open this weekend, but it wasn't necessarily for her tennis skills (I mean, she kills it on the court!). The tennis star showed up wearing a red and black lace corset-like outfit for her match against Patty Schnyder — it was a little boudoir looking by way of the Moulin Rouge. To make things even more risqué were the nude compression shorts Venus wore underneath her black lace tutu. When Venus's skirt flew up, the shorts gave the illusion that she was naked underneath. Yowza!

This is not the first time Venus (or her sister) has pushed the boundaries when it comes to on-court outfits. Venus donned a very similar number at the Sony Ericsson Open last month. Both outfits are from Venus's clothing line, EleVen. Do you think Venus should be able to express herself as she chooses on the court? Tell me . . .
