Tennis superstar Venus Williams surprised her 1.2 million Instagram followers with a double update featuring a colorful, beach-ready ensemble she was wearing around the house. As the geotag indicates, the shots were taken in Jupiter, Florida. She posed in front of what appeared to be a fireplace surrounded by ornate detailing, including a dolphin on either side holding up the mantel.
Venus showcased her muscular physique in a white one-piece swimsuit with a heart on the front, filled in with the American flag. She has worn the swimsuit before on her Instagram page, but she layered on two additional colorful elements for her latest snap — a pale pink hair turban wrapped around her tresses, and a striped robe. Despite being indoors, she also wore a pair of white sneakers from the brand K-Swiss.
The robe Venus had on was a piece from alice + olivia, and the garment was very colorful. Though there was a thick horizontal band of black along the arms and at the hem, the rest of the robe was striped in a variety of colors, from sunshine yellow to emerald green to soft pink. The athlete posed with one arm resting on the mantel and the other on her hip, serving up a powerful look for the camera.
For the second snap, Venus turned around to show off the back of the ensemble. In addition to all the stripes, bold letters spelled out the phrase “lift you higher” on the back of the robe.
The garment was a burst of color amidst the otherwise neutral surroundings, and the whole look showcased Venus’ sculpted figure to perfection. She mentioned in the caption that the robe incorporated her “favorite colors,” and her followers couldn’t get enough.
The post racked up over 7,500 likes within just 51 minutes, including one from Venus’ sister, Serena Williams. It also received 235 comments from her fans.
“You remain one of my fav idols. I miss tennis!!!” one fan commented.
“Wow, Venus!!!!!” another follower exclaimed, posting several emoji at the end of the comment to further illustrate their thoughts on the snaps.
“Happy Tuesday to you too! You are absolutely beautiful in these colors,” a third person added.
“Venus you look amazing,” a fourth individual said.
Venus has been sharing the occasional update with her followers on Instagram about what she’s been up to during quarantine, and her routine includes a bit of tennis, as many might expect. Just a few days ago, as The Inquisitr reported, she showcased her fit physique in a pair of tight gray leggings and a gray long-sleeved shirt. She had a baseball cap on and held a racquet in her hands as she posed while out on the tennis court at her home.
