The athlete looked spring-ready in her silky midi dress and open-toe shoes. The frock featured a fitted top with thin spaghetti straps and a flowing pleated skirt that draped just below her knee. The blush-toned dress had a soft satin finish and an asymmetrical seam. When it came to accessories, the 41-year-old kept it simple with a thin gold cross necklace.

On her feet, she opted for stylish flats. The navy sandals featured a gem-encrusted strap that ran down her foot and clasped around her ankle. The back of the shoes also featured a sparkly finish.

On Sunday, Williams celebrated the Oscars at the Vanity Fair after-party. She wore a white floor-length dress that hid her heels.

When it comes to her typical style, Williams tends to opt for modern and chic options. For example, she recently wore a neutral-toned pantsuit with a cropped blazer that fit under her arms for “The Late Late Show with James Corden.” She paired the look with standout footwear. The Sophia Webster tiger-print platforms featured a purple and pink stacked beaded heel.

Williams has also continued to pioneer her own lane within the fashion industry. She recently became the new global brand ambassador of Lacoste, and she also collaborated with K-Swiss in 2020 on a line of clothing and sneakers that had sport and sleekness in mind. The tennis star also has her own apparel line, EleVen by Venus Williams, which focuses on creating clothing with functionality at the forefront.
