Serena Williams accidentally revealed her pregnancy on Snapchat recently, after she meant to send a pic of her burgeoning bump to a friend. Fans and media alike were quick to do the maths: did this mean she won the Australian Open while pregnant?! It turns out she did. With 23 Grand Slams under her belt, as well as over a dozen for her doubles play, on top of countless tour victories and consecutive weeks ranked World No.1, she really is the G.O.A.T.
When asked about being one of the greatest female athletes of all time, she corrected the interviewer, saying:
I prefer the word ‘one of the greatest athletes of all time
Given that even being pregnant couldn’t slow her down, we’re left wondering what more this phenomenal lady could possibly accomplish. She even has flawless style.
With her own clothing line and reputation for boundary-pushing outfits on court, Serena knows a thing or two about fashion.
We’ve compiled some of our fave Serena looks. Maybe if we copy her, some of her talent will rub off on us?
We can only hope.
Athleisure is still going strong this season, just like Serena. Raise the barre by adding a touch of ballet-inspired clobber to your sports-luxe look.
We love the ’80s footless leg warmers and tights combo, and a printed sports bra is just the ticket for keeping you supported and looking fab.
Ruffles & Sparkles
If you haven’t watched Beyonce’s video album Lemonade yet, then you’re missing a trick.
Not only is it jammed full of empowering woman-centred tunes and awesome cinematography, but Serena makes a seriously stylish cameo in the track ‘Sorry’.
And it turns out she was ahead of the game (as usual), sporting a regal ruffled bodysuit; frills are all over the catwalks right now, as are shiny embellishments.
We’re particularly fond of her glittery tights…steal her style and release your inner magpie.
It’s that time of year. The sun’s finally coming out and we’re digging out our swimwear.
Make like Serena in a black strappy number or show some patriotism in stars and stripes.
Wear yours with some thick-rimmed sunnies like Serena. Try these from Karl Lagerfeld on for size:
Karl Lagerfeld KL929S
Or go for a fresh take on classic Aviators. We’re really digging these from Invu:
INVU T1505 – Trend Collection
Statement specs are the order of the day and we love Serena’s penchant for thick rims and bold shapes.
Try some tortoise shell frames like these from MaxMara:
MaxMara Occhiali MM 1246
Or go for some thick black frames. Wear your hair down tousled and keep those eyebrows on point just like Ms. Williams.
We reckon these specs from Oakley are just the right level of geek chic:
