Venus Williams almost had a Janet Jackson moment during a good-natured exhibition match against Italian tennis player Flavia Pennetta in Milan. The left strap on one of Venus' self-designed eleVen dresses snapped during the match, almost exposing some extra skin to the assembled crowd.
Like a seasoned fashion veteran, the elder Williams sister managed to cover up the problem and coolly walked off the court to change outfits. When she returned, she brought some popcorn for Pennetta, who had been forced to wait out the literal changeover.
If you're going to have a wardrobe malfunction, what better place to have it than Milan, one of the fashion capitals of the world. Surely the fans in attendance have seen the likes of Armani, Dolce and Cavalli send models down the runway wearing less.
