Serena Williams Serves Up a Tutu at the U.S. Open — And Wins Everything
Serena Williams is a champion in just about every single way. Sure, there’s the obvious 39 grand slam wins (tennis royalty!), but she’s a fashion champ as well, consistently serving up fierce looks both on and off the court. As usual, her ensemble yesterday at the U.S. Open (where she won her match, FYI) did not disappoint. In fact, her outfit choice spoke volumes. Literally.
Just days after the French Open President, Bernard Guidicelli, banned catsuits for the 2019 tournament (like the black iteration Williams wore at this year’s match), Williams seemingly retaliated in her own way, donning an unexpected one-shoulder black Virgil Abloh bodysuit, complete with an actual tutu. That’s right, she came to slay.
A collaboration between Nike and Abloh, the outfit also highlighted fishnet tights (fashionable and functionable because they help prevent blood clots, one of the purposes of wearing a tight catsuit on the court as well). To finish off the ensemble, she rocked a pair of sparkly sneakers, part of the Nike Court Flare 2 sneakers from Abloh’s Serena-inspired “Queen Collection” for Nike. To take the entire look one step further, personal touches were added to the ensemble, including the name “Serena” emblazoned on the sleeves of the top and on the soles of the sneakers.
