After the ceremony, Venus threw a party to celebrate her achievement and the recent launch of her Steve & Barry’s clothing line, EleVen. She wore a diagonal print halter by Catherine Malandrino — a Williams sisters fave. (Buy: the dress is available for $495 here.)


With her golfer boyfriend, Venus shows off one of her designs.
