The tennis star has some looks of her own design planned for the tournament; and for Fashion Week

EleVen by Venus Williams

After winning Olympic gold while wearing pieces from her own line — EleVen by Venus Williams — the tennis champ will see if her designs can bring her the same luck at the U.S. Open.

Williams is planning to sport creations from her second capsule collection at the event, which kicks off in New York City today. (She hits the courts for the first time at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug, 28.) And as expected, her ensembles will be quite eye-catching; she’ll be competing first in a pink-and-white rose-print tennis dress (left), then again in an equally funky printed tank.

If you’re like us and are totally fascinated by everything Williams wears, you’re in luck. Because in just a few weeks, the athlete will be showing her designs at New York Fashion Week … which may very well mark the first time a skort is shown at Fashion Week. Tell us: What do you think of Williams’s getups?
