By  | 

Fashion’s relationship with sports has been deep and iconic. From players who bring their personal sartorial taste to the court to celebrity guests who often take seats in Wimbledon’s royal box, a great taste in perfection is what we are often served. And adding to this list is ace tennis player–Serena Williams, who has all eyes on her, at the US Open.

Besides a spectacular win and an entry into the third round, what has the onlookers surprised is Serena’s custom Nike look for the US Open. In pictures shared by Williams on her official Instagram handle, we learnt the significance of the tennis star’s sparkling NikeCourt Flare. Much like her previous, icon-worthy looks for the tournaments, Serena’s latest look confirmed her style prowess. The 23-time major champion, and full-time trendsetter, dazzled in a black ensemble, that came layered with an asymmetrical robe. The fabric used for the bodice and the tutu skirt replicated the starry night sky above the centre court in Flushing, NY. The skirt in the spotlight displays six layers, that depict and honour the tennis star’s “six previous title wins in Flushing,” said the brand.

The entire silhouette design loaned its inspiration from its muse, who has never shied away from putting her fiery, fierce and bold persona on display. To match the dress with her shoes, the 40-year-old picked a pair of black Nike swoosh and decorated it with her initials in gold and custom deubrés that read–”Mama” and “Queen” from Serena William Jewellery. Tailor-made to allow Serena display her confidence and feel at ease, the designs brought so much more to the court. Her 400 diamond-studded ensemble, also added a flare of spark to her hair, which has a history with on-court style. Adorned with specks of diamonds, Serena made sure to match her glorious legacy with a scintillating look for her final rounds on the court.

Cheering for her “Queen Mama,” Serena’s daughter Olympia loaned a look from her mother’s early years in the sport, as she decorated her hair with white beads and replicated a starry attire to dress for her mom’s special day. In custom Nike, the mother-daughter duo twinned to win our hearts, again. And well, I have my eye on Olympia’s picture-perfect camera.

While Williams has never conformed to the dated dress code that the sport hopes its players to follow, her sartorial nuance has always been welcomed with grace. From tiny tutus, longer trails, denim skirts, pastel hues and beaded braids, Serena has made sure her on-court style was as glorious as the win. Throughout her years in the sport, and spotlight, Williams’ love for dressing up has welcomed collaborations with late designer, Virgil Abloh to create some impeccable looks for the French Open in 2018 and consecutively in the next year. Despite receiving backlash from French Tennis Federation for her choice of a black catsuit with a red waistband, Serena has never shied away from wearing what her ideologies. Fashion to Williams has always been a mode of expression. Communicating her power and resilience through the silhouette she chooses to wear, Serena has been a luminary in a world that brings sports and sartorial pizzazz together.

After a thunderous win on Wednesday, with a three-set victory over world number two Anett Kontaveit at the US Open, the 40-year-old has now reached the third round of the tournament.
