Serena Williams At Made In Polaroid Charity Auction: Hit Or Miss? (PHOTOS, POLL)

Serena Williams made headlines this week for an unflattering display of hot-headedness, in which she loudly harangued a chair umpire during her U.S. Open finals match... and was fined $2,000 for the "verbal abuse" incident.

But last night she had the opportunity to make a more flattering statement -- fashion-wise, that is. The 29-year-old tennis star celebrated the conclusion of the U.S. Open as well as New York Fashion Week at the Made In Polaroid Charity Auction, attended by big fashion names such as Patrick Demarchelier, Stefano Tonchi and Brad Goreski as well as Sting.

For the occasion Williams let her hair down (or, more accurately, out), showing off the hot pink streak in her curls. She donned a tight blue dress with zebra-stripe detail across the bodice and paired the body-con look with basic black pumps and silver bangles on both wrists.

Does the look work for the tennis pro or do Serena's choices prove unflattering once again?

Take a look at the pics below!
