After announcing her retirement in Vogue's September 2022 issue, the tennis legend geared up for her final US Open appearance in grand style.

Her chosen outfit has done a great job at reflecting the extraordinary legacy she leaves behind, both on and off the court.

In her victorious first round match and then again during her stunning win against the number two seed Anett Kontaveit, Williams wore an figure skating inspired black, sheer-paneled Nike dress drenched in sparkles.

Her glittering look boasted a six-layer skirt to honor her six US Open crowns. The sneakers – NikeCourt Flare 2 – featured a 400 handset diamonds, her initials inscribed on the medial side, and an embellished Nike swoosh.

The crystal-studded outfit, which she co-designed, was matched by daughter, Olympia Ohanian, in a sparkly Nike outfit and a beaded hairstyle.

While this final Grand Slam effort is special for obvious reasons, it's only the latest memorable outfit to be showcased by an athlete who's also a true fashion icon.
