Venus Williams' Wimbledon Dress: Short, White & Tina Turner-Inspired (PHOTOS)

Venus Williams is back on the court at Wimbledon, and she is wearing a new dress for the occasion. Just weeks after unveiling a lacy item at the French Open, the five-time Wimbledon champion showed up in a dress inspired by Tina Turner.

"I think it's just a fun, elegant dress. Here it's all about white. There is no illusion this time," she said about the outfit. Williams says she admires Turner because she is "a survivor" and "she reinvented herself. Plus she looks great."

The dress is working so far -- she won her first match in straight sets. Scroll down for photos of her new outfit.
