As I watched this 27th all-Williams match culminating their long and successful careers, with Serena ultimately emerging the victor as she continues to embark upon a historical first calendar year Grand Slam since 1988, I’m reminded of the time I actually met both sisters at an event in Los Angeles a few years ago.
I was working for another celebrity publicist and we were having an event (book signing) at Macy Gray’s estate in Encino and she was there! The publicist that I worked for was actually Venus’s publicist but Serena would often attend many events in which I assisted.
At this particular event, I had the pleasure of assisting Serena as she flowed from interview- to- interview opportunities with the press. I recall the shear regal, Amazonian beauty of her! She was very pleasant and very gracious with the press and has quite the sense of humor as I recall.
Venus is a lovely, poised, quiet, tall gisele and very professional.
As a person who is one out of nine siblings, I understand the bond of sisters and would like to remind everyone that after Serena celebrated defeating her sister a smiling Venus wrapped both arms around her little sister for a warm hug at the net and whispered, “So happy for you.” Because at the end of the day, they will always be sisters, on and off the court! You gotta love that family bond!
Until next time my Veteran Fashionistas, as always, stay fashionable!
