Celebrating Serena Williams' Boss Style, From The Court To The Carpet

Anyone else remember the catsuit?

Serena Williams, one of the greatest athletes of all time, is also known for her fashion sense on and off the court. 

The tennis superstar, who is a certified nail technician on the side, has two years of fashion school under her belt. She’s designed collections for Nike and HSN and presented her Serena Williams line at New York Fashion Week multiple times

Over the years, she’s also served up some pretty iconic looks, from her denim tennis skirt and black leather one-pieces at tennis tournaments to ethereal gowns at the Vanity Fair Oscar party and Met Gala. 

Check out her style evolution below:
