Serena Williams In Victoria Beckham – Late Show With David Letterman

Serena Williams looked stunning as she arrived at the Ed Sullivan Theatre in New York City yesterday for her guest appearance on ‘Late Show With David Letterman’.

The Wimbledon and Olympic tennis champion wore a Victoria Beckham dress for the occasion.

Her fitted dress with a V-neckline was accented with a grosgrain black waistband. It exudes elegance, so I’m really disappointed, once again, that she opted for such awful footwear.

These black embellished Christian Louboutin Decorapump (similar to the ‘Daffodile’ pumps) are so out of tune with the rest of her look.

Simple black ‘Pigalle’ pumps, though predictable, would’ve been much preferred.

Gorgeous voluminous curly hair and flawless makeup provided the finishing touches.

Yay or nay on Serena’s ‘Daffodiles’?

Serena Williams In Burberry – Wimbledon Championships 2012 Winners Ball

Serena Williams was all smiles on the purple carpet at the 2012 Wimbledon Champions Dinner held at the Intercontinental Hotel in London on Sunday evening after winning the women’s title the previous day.

Once again she wore a dress by one of her favoured brands, Burberry.

They have created some custom looks in the past but I really don’t like this look.

Something tells me that this sateen mustard dress with long sheer sleeves would’ve been better off as a simple strapless dress.

Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ spike pumps, gold jewels and a black-and-gold Burberry box clutch accessorized her look.

Medium curly locks and glossy pink lips provided the finishing touches.

WTA Pre-Wimbledon Party at The Roof Gardens

Fashion and tennis collided at the WTA Pre-Wimbledon Party, held at The Roof Gardens in Kensington, London last night.

We have already seen Maria Sharapova. Here are the rest of the attendees who took to the green carpet.

Serena Williams: The tennis ace was once again dressed by Burberry for this annual event. Her purple taffeta frock with black sheer straps was styled with black t-bar sandals and a selection of silver jewels. The thing I love most about her look are her voluminous curls.

Ana Ivanovic: The young star wore a pretty Matthew Williamson feather-accented frock which complemented her statuesque frame. The stunning lace dress also features a cluster of gold paillettes and beaded details. It may seem like quite a lot of detail, but she carries it off with great aplomb. She accessorized with Christian Louboutin matching heels with a gold toe-cap and a mahogany clutch.
Whilst I love the elegant updo, I wish she applied fake tan to her feet. I guess that is what happens when training in sunny conditions wearing thick tennis socks.

Anne Keothavong: The British number one ranked player wore a baroque-inspired Alexander McQueen ‘Fil’ coupé jacquard green-and-black dress. She styled her look with tights (it’s been a while since I saw tights on the red carpet), black pumps (the same can’t be said for those) and a sweeping ponytail.

Venus & Serena Williams In Christiane King – 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

It looks like Maria Sharapova wasn’t the only tennis pro to hit the red carpet at the 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, as the Williams sisters were also in attendance.

Both sisters wore gowns designed by Christiane King.

The vibrant hues not only complement their skin-tone but their bubbly personalities.

Both ladies are flawless, but I would’ve picked Venus’ two-tone one shoulder dress over Serena’s stunning, yet restrictive, mustard mermaid dress.

Venus accessorized with a Konstantin Kakanias blush suede sunflower evening bag from the Atelier Swarovski Spring 2012 collection, whilst Serena opted for emerald green and gold statement jewels.

Which look do you favour?

Serena Williams In Donna Karan – 25th Annual Footwear News Achievement Awards

Serena Williams put her best foot forward on the red carpet for the 25th Annual Footwear News Achievement Awards in New York City last night.

She wore a gorgeous pair or gold metallic bow front Giuseppe Zanotti heels, but it’s her Donna Karan dress which has my jaw on the floor.

There is no denying that this rich red jersey dress is hugging her in all the right places creating a beautiful feminine silhouette.

My issue is the makeup.

I hope she applied it herself because no self-respecting ‘artist’ should be applying foundation that far away from her hairline.

This is a small blip on an otherwise flawless turn on the red carpet for Serena.

Corkscrew tight curls, a pink lip colour and a gold necklace completed her look.

Serena Williams In Rachel Roy – 2011 ESPY Awards

Too Much Boobage Award
After throwing a pre-party for this event, Serena Williams attended the 2011 ESPY Awards last night.

The tennis ace opted to wear a hot pink Rachel Roy ‘Orchid’ jacket dress which immediately made me think of ‘Samantha Jones’ from SATC.

I adore the colour, but the whole look feels so heavy.

Why anyone would want to wear a long sleeve jacket dress in 100 degree weather will remain a mystery to me.

Her shoes are just OK, but that statement necklace and the boobage kill this look for me.

If she thought the necklace was going to distract us from her cleavage she was wrong.

Who Wore Alexander McQueen Better? Tulisa Contostavlos, Serena Williams or Khloe Kardashian

Tulisa Contostavlos was the first of three celebrities to wear this Alexander McQueen jacquard butterfly cap-sleeve dress within the space of a week.

The new X Factor UK judge wore the dress last week to the London auditions with a pair of navy YSL Tribute sandals.

Khloe Kardashian and Serena Williams both wore the same dress on Tuesday night.

Khloe paired her dress with a mirrored clutch and black Louboutin peep-toes to the HPNOTIQ Harmonie launch party in New York City.

On the West Coast a few hours later Serena opted for nude pumps and silver clutch with her McQueen mini to host the Hennessy’s Official ESPY Kick-Off Party.

I can’t say I love any of them in this McQueen dress, but Tulisa wins for me.

Khloe has an amazing shoe closet so she should’ve done better in that department.

I’m not a fan of Serena’s clutch so Tulisa wins by default.
