Venus Williams puts on a leggy display in a sparkling black mini dress as she steps out of Hotel Costes during Paris Fashion Week
Venus Williams looked incredible as she strutted out of Hotel Costes after a fun night out during Paris Fashion Week on Friday.
The tennis pro, 43, put on a very leggy display in a sparkling black mini dress, which she styled with a white and gold beaded necklace.
She added some height to her frame with a pair of black heels and made sure to capture attention in her stunning ensemble.
Venus also made an appearance at Usher’s Rendez-vous a Paris Dinner & Cocktail Party at the Hôtel Plaza Athénée earlier in the night.
Paris Fashion Week kicked off on Monday and runs to October 3, with 107 brands presenting, of which 67 are giving runway shows.

One of the first big names was Pierre Cardin, which has returned to the official Paris lineup this year for the first time in a quarter-century.
Its show was full of retro space-age outfits that harked back to its glory days, but the relatives of Cardin, who died in 2020, are currently tearing each other apart in court over the inheritance.
‘My uncle gave me the mission to perpetuate the house and its style,’ Rodrigo Basilicati-Cardin, who is currently overseeing the label, said backstage.
‘If the brand is sold, it will be the end of the house. I am confident the court decisions will ensure continuity,’ he added.
Among the other highlights so far was the latest collection from Dior on Tuesday, which saw the walls of the show plastered with mock sexist slogans from old adverts, such as ‘Save your marriage – iron properly’.
The collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri, who recently dressed Queen Camilla for her state dinner at Versailles, was a largely monochrome affair with comfortable, breezy items alongside straight masculine jackets, pleated skirts and plenty of knitwear.

Two final shows for two big-name designers were also part of Paris Fashion Week.
Gabriela Hearst is leaving Chloe after fewer than three years. Her focus on sustainable fashion was critically acclaimed but did not bring a major boost to sales.
It will also be the last show for Sarah Burton, who took over at Alexander McQueen following the founder’s suicide in 2010.
