Venus and Serena Williams embodied the adage that all that glitters isn’t gold on the red carpet at the 27th Annual Critics Choice Awards on Sunday night.
The two, who coordinated the pairing of silver looks from Atelier Versace, presented at the awards show – which they also attended on behalf of their biopic ‘King Richard’.
Serena Williams wore a jeweled bodycon dress with spaghetti straps and a dramatic train, which she accented with diamond bracelets and earrings.
“About last night…” the tennis great wrote in an Instagram caption alongside photos of her gorgeous outfit. “It was surreal to present with @venuswilliams at the Critics Choice Awards, the same night a movie about my family was nominated for Best Picture. Thank you, THANK YOU for an unforgettable evening.”
Venus Williams wore a bold Versace creation with a deep neckline and silver shorts, which gave way to a slit skirt.
She accessorized with diamond jewelry, a matching clutch and silver python Sophia Webster platforms.
“King Richard” was nominated for six Critics Choice Awards and ended up winning in one category: Best Actor for Will Smith, who played the Williams sisters’ father, Richard.
“I’m here tonight with Venus and Serena and their sister Isha,” Smith said of the three sisters, who served as executive producers on the film, during her acceptance speech to thunderous applause. “I really want to say to all of you ― thank you for entrusting your story to me. What you have been able to do and what your family has been able to do has inspired everyone in this room, everyone in this country and everyone world in the world.
“You all define the American Dream,” Smith added. “You represent the best of what we all hope this world and this country can be.”
