Serena Williams Rocks Tutu by Off-White at US Open Following Catsuit Ban

Serena Williams, 23-time Grand Slam title winner, will hit the court tonight at the 2019 US Open in a quarterfinal match on her quest for title 24. We don’t know what the fashion designer and style maven will wear, but in tribute to the one of the greatest athletes of all time, we are reposting this August 2018 article–and a behind-the-scenes video of the photo shoot for her unforgettable July 2008 EBONY cover.

Serena Williams has responded to her “Wakanda-inspired” catsuit being banned at the French Open by stylin’ and profilin’ in her own custom-made tennis tutu while taking home her first victory of the year at the 2018 US Open.

The tulle tennis dress was designed by Virgil Abloh of Off-White, who took to Instagram to share an image of the star in action, saying he’s willing to design dresses for the world’s greatest athlete for life.

People describes the look as a, “chic one shoulder dress, a pleated tulle skirt, fishnet stockings and custom sparkly Off-White sneakers that featured her name on the outer sole.”

The 36-year-old also “dominated” her opponent, Magda Linette, advancing to the second round of the tournament. Check out photos and reaction to Serena’s look below.
