Tennis star Venus Williams dominates centre courts with incredible outfits from her own brand,EleVen.

Sometimes she sports a floral dress and matches it up with purple hair, or raises a few eyebrows when she wears a skimpy, corset-like outfit.

The American, who is in Bengaluru for Champions Tennis League, chose the elegant sari, designed by Ritu Kumar, and insisted on walking the ramp to a Bollywood number.

Venus sported a vibrant yellow sari in georgette, with gold thread embroidery on the border.

The simplicity of the sari was enhanced by a red embroidered blouse.

"It is of so much interest to global fashion to see how the sari is crossing all sartorial barriers and is being worn by celebrities across the world.

"Venus chose a sari which was flattering to her skin tone. The pioneer women from the sports world add a lot of glamour to the fusion of Indian and international sensibilities," said designer Kumar said.
