Taking It East To West

After that disastrous styling that was inflicted upon Serena Williams at the opening of WTA Bangalore Open (below, left), anything would have been an improvement! The dress by Shantanu and Nikhil that she wore at the HP Notebook launch in Delhi (below, right) was such a far cry from that horrible 'velvet-blouse-paired-with-a-sari' look!
















Am not convinced this was still the best choice of an outfit for her but I'll take this over that sari anyday...

I especially like the subtle jewelled accents on the dress, very chic!! If only the hemline went a bit more south...

I agree with you....they couldn't have gone wrong after the Saree. But what I wonder is how the Williams sisters, being designers themselves agreed to such an atrocity.

didn't think much of the dress on serena. but what the dress lacks the color makes up. The burnt orange looks great against her skin. the william sisters are beautiful women and hopefully they will know better next time they are approached with a saree.

never mind, I think they agreed to appear in those sarees no matter how terrible they looked coz they din wanna offend us locals.

and that dress might look good on someone more delicately built but it makes her look so awkward.look into sleeves,perhaps?

I really admire the sportsmanship of these William sisters...both on and off court they're in full swing, cheerful, and exude enthusiasm and great spirit! Once again I wish the sponsors had given her something nicer to wear.

The person who put the sari on should be blamed as well.

she looks ugly however hard she tries, sharapova is a darling not the william sisters, they are really grossly disgusting and in saree they looked as if instead of going to wash vessels in someone's house they had by mistake landed on the runway lol
