Venus & Serena Williams Wears Christiane King To The 2012 Vanity Fair Post-Oscar Party

Tennis sibling champions Venus & Serena Williams stepped out in stunning custom-made gowns by Christiane King at the 2012 Vanity Fair Post-Oscar bash! Serena wore a curve-hugging mustard yellow mermaid look from the Project Runaway alum’s Atelier while Venus channelled a Grecian-inspired look in a youthful color-block neon pink and purple dress. Venus accessorized with a white and gold clutch while Serena let her emerald green and gold jewelry be her statement pieces. Serena went for a Old Hollywood look with her side-part hairstyle but kept her look current with her open-back dress. Venus’s dress bought out her best features – her legs. Which Christiane King dress did you love more on the Williams sisters – Venus or Serena?

We are definitely excited to see such exquisite designs from a African fashion designer on the Oscar red carpet. We are not only thrilled and overjoyed for Christiane King but extremely happy! The last time a celebrity worn custom-made Christiane King designs on a major red carpet was when Kendra Wilkinson dazzled in a winter white look during Golden Globes 2012 weekend! Be sure to visit Christiane King’s Facebook page to see what other celebrity can’t resist wearing her designs. Congrats to the entire team at Christiane King for a job well-done!
