Venus Williams dons dress inspired

sports Updated: Jun 22, 2010 10:34 IST

Venus Williams has moved on to a new fashion inspiration: Tina Turner.

After causing quite a stir at the French Open last month with a black lace dress she described as having the "illusion of bareness," Williams arrived at Wimbledon on Monday with a more conservative white outfit filled with frills, and called it a tribute to rock singer Turner.

"Obviously she's just an amazing, amazing artist, just a survivor. She reinvented herself. Plus she looks great," Williams said. "I've loved her forever. So the dress is really inspired by her."

At the All England Club, where Williams beat Rossana de los Rios of Paraguay 6-3, 6-2 in the first round, a strict dress code governs colors and styles of what can be worn.
