Serena Williams adds another iconic US Open outfit to her long and influential fashion list
New York, New York - Serena Williams has wowed the crowd with stunning looks, as well as sensational performances, throughout her career. So as she prepares for her final bow, it's only fitting that she added another show-stopping Grand Slam look to her long list.
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.
Serena brings street fashion to American Denim
Inspired by Andre Agassi's denim short's at the 1989 US Open, a 23-year-old Williams went for a Denim jean skirt designed by Nike at the 2004 US Open.
Complimented with a studded Black crop-top, this outfit marked out Serena as a "fashion girl" on the court.
Since introducing this non-tradition tennis attire, fans around the world have always looked out for her latest attire.
And whether it's the Flamenco-inspired tutu dress at the US Open in 2018, or the fierce Nike-designed catsuit at the French Open that same year, which she debuted after giving birth to her first child, Serena Williams has never really disappointed.
Meanwhile, after being awarded a US Open wild card for doubles, she will join older sister, Venus, in a doubles match against Czech pair Lucie Hradecka and Linda Noskova on Thursday, 7 PM EDT.
