Don’t Worry, Venus Williams Is Wearing Panties

Though it certainly looked like she was in the buff under her tennis skirt at the Australian Open, Venus Williams admitted to wearing flesh-colored undies for the sake of fashion.

“I am wearing undershorts the same color as my skin, so it gives the slits in my dress the full effect!” she wrote on Twitter after some fans complained about the potentially racy scenario.

Fashion-savvy Williams has her own line called EleVen and said: “My dress for the
Australian Open has been one of my best designs ever! It’s all about
the slits and V neck.”

The 29-year-old drew catcalls from the audience for her faux-mooning and one commenter even wrote back “Your choice of outfit at a Grand Slam tournament (or any tournament) was disgusting.”
