For the Raptor’s Ball in Bangalore, tennis star Venus Williams dresses up in a Ritu Kumar sari.

Tennis star Venus Williams sported a Ritu Kumar sari at Raptor’s Ball in Bangalore. Williams wore a yellow georgette sari with a gold thread embroidery on the border.

The simplicity of the sari is enhanced by a red blouse embroidered in concentric circles and edged with ghungroos to give a folk look to the entire ensemble.

“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 has chosen saris which are flattering to their skin tones, are in rich colours and have a heritage of embroidery techniques used for embellishment,” Ritu Kumar said.
