"Venus and Serena" doc opens and EleVen debuts in SoFlo

Staff Writer

Aaaahhh, Serena and Venus Williams.

I know it isn't exactly a frock-doc, but the movie "Venus and Serena" opens this weekend in SoFla (O Cinema in Miami Shores) after recently premiering at the Miami International Film Festival.

No, it isn't about fashion per se like the equally fab-film "Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's" (now at The Classic Gateway Theatre in Fort Lauderdale).

But you just know that style is a big part of their story. "Vogue" editrix Anna Wintour even makes a cameo to put the Williams sisters' in-your-face looks in their proper context.

After all, let's not forget that in 2007 Venus earned a fashion degree from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale and has had a clothing line called EleVen since 2004.

And speaking of EleVen, Venus is bringing that line to her home base of SoFlo, including the dresses she will wear at Wimbledon, The French Open and the U.S. Open as she fights to stay in the Top 20 since being diagnosed with Sjogren's.

Here are the pro shops where the line will be available beginning May 26:

The PGA National Resort and Spa, Palm Beach Gardens

Ballen Isles Country Club, Palm Beach Gardens

Tennis Anyone? Boca Raton

Mizner Country Club, Delray Beach

Admirals Cove Tennis Shop, Jupiter
