Serena Williams showed off her glam side from the comfort of her own home, getting ready for girls’ night in style.
Hopping up on her bathroom counter to top off her makeup, the tennis pro took to Instagram this afternoon to show off her bold attire. The center of the look came in the form of a glittering black minidress complete with a long-sleeve silhouette and a sequin-coated finish.

To bring the look to new heights, Williams then slipped on a towering set of stilettos with a recognizable outsole. The red-bottom heels, courtesy of Christian Louboutin, highlight a sharply pointed-toe silhouette with a curved vamp and a teetering height.
The 23-time Grand Slam champion is no stranger to wow-worthy pieces. Just yesterday, for example, Williams broke out a floral catsuit from Richard Quinn and Moncler’s collaboration as she displayed how she does “winters in Florida.” The piece came matched to block-heeled combat boots from Stuart Weitzman, a brand the athlete serves as an ambassador and model for.
In May of 2020, Williams officially signed on as the newest global spokeswoman for Stuart Weitzman, starring in the brand’s spring and summer ’20 ad campaign. She has since appeared in shoots for its fall ’20 collection and, most recently, its spring ’21 campaign with her daughter, Olympia.
Williams has also been a Nike athlete since 2003 and has released a number of collaborative projects with the brand over the years. In 2019, the two powerhouses announced that they were looking for emerging designers to help create a Williams-inspired shoe and apparel collection for 2020. She also created her own namesake apparel and accessories brand in 2018 and has since debuted capsules during New York Fashion Week.
‘If Body Ody Was a Person’: Serena Williams Brings Spring Vibes While Flaunting Her Curvy Body
Serena Williams does not only bring the heat on the tennis court, but apparently she does so with her fashion as well. In her March 11 photo posted to social media, she is wearing a long-sleeved body-hugging jumpsuit that is covered in daisies. Paired with the jumpsuit, she wore black combat boots as she stood outside in front of a pile of logs.
“How we do winters in Florida,” she wrote. The current Miami resident seemed confident that she looked great in her outfit because she wrote “The temperature just went up 🔥 🔥 🔥,” in the comments section.
Fans agreed that she looked amazing in her one-piece. One person said, “HONEYYYYY IT’S A WHOLE MOMENT.” Another person wrote that they were, “Soooo obsessed with this look!!!❤️❤️❤️”
Many even dubbed her “Flower Power,” and someone else said this is what it would look like “🔥🔥🔥 If bodyody was a person 😍.”
One thing about Williams is she does not play about her fashion. In a 2017 Vogue interview, she talked more about her love for fashion. “For me there was only one thing I connected to the way I’ve connected to tennis, and that’s been fashion. If you give me a garment, I can tell you what the fabric is, how it’s made, why something can or can’t be done because of the draping, et cetera. Who knows? Maybe I would have won more Grand Slams if I had been 100 percent tennis.”
Williams even has a clothing line, which she named after herself and launched in May 2018. During that time, the 23-time Grand Slam winner revealed that fashion wasn’t something that she randomly became interested in. In an interview with Essence, she shared that fashion was something she took seriously. She also said, “I went to fashion school back in the early 2000s,” and she attended The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale.
Serena Williams’ Hubby Defends Her Against ‘Racist’ Tennis Star
If you’re a fan of tennis, then it’s very likely that you’re also a fan of Serena Williams. Frankly, she’s so skilled at what she does that her impact goes way beyond her own game. That’s why, in 2016, The Guardian deemed her to be “the greatest sportsperson ever,” backing that up by noting that “[s]he’s overcome adversity to win all the major prizes in tennis, and been way ahead at the top of the game for two decades.” Indeed, the outlet noted that she’s in the league of elite athletic greats such as “Muhammad Ali, Diego Maradona, Pelé, Michael Jordan, Usain Bolt, Jack Nicklaus, Sir Donald Bradman, [and] Roger Federer.”
The sports experts over at ESPN agree, pointing out that when you’re discussing the best of the best, finding Williams’ name on the list is a given. “Of course Jackie Robinson is recognized as one of the great profiles in courage,” the outlet asserts. “Of course Henry Aaron is revered as baseball royalty. Of course Serena Williams is accepted as the greatest tennis champion of her time.”
That’s why it’s downright ridiculous when anyone tries to diminish what Williams has done or what she’s capable of. And although she can (and does) defend herself against others’ baseless opinions, her husband, Alexis Ohanian Sr., is also fully willing and able to stick up for his wife. That’s just what he did when one particular person went after Williams.
Those who are thinking about criticizing Serena Williams regarding her tennis skills might want to keep their opinion to themselves. That’s because they might be taken down by none other than Williams’ husband, Alexis Ohanian Sr.
Current WWE Superstar reveals the big promise John Cena kept to him
WWE veteran John Cena made a major promise to Big E, back when the latter was in Florida Championship Wrestling.
Big E can be seen setting a bench press record at John Cena’s gym, in the latest sneak peek from WWE’s 24 special, focusing on the Intercontinental Champion. Big E is currently one of the most popular Superstars on the SmackDown brand. WWE’s latest 24 special focusing on his career is being lauded by fans and fellow Superstars alike.
WWE uploaded a sneak peek from the special to its official YouTube channel. The clip shows WWE legend John Cena assuring Big E that if he manages to hit a 575 Raw bench press, he will make sure that the visual is included in a documentary that was in the works at the time.
The documentary in question was focused on the buildup to John Cena vs The Rock at WrestleMania 28, and Big E was a mainstay in FCW at the time. Knowing full well that not many fans knew who he was at the time, Big E realized that being featured in the documentary would give him some serious exposure.
Big E eventually managed to set the record, and celebrated with John Cena, Roman Reigns, and others.
John Cena and Big E were workout partners back when the two Superstars were traveling with WWE on a regular basis. The duo became good friends, and it didn’t take long for Cena to realize that the current IC Champion had the potential to make it big in WWE. Big E opened up on the advice John Cena gave him in the past
“From John Cena, I learned about the importance of timing and the moment. There are things you can let get away from you, and things might happen out of nowhere, but it’s all about owning the moment. When you’re out there in front of the crowd, it’s about taking that chance or doing something special so you go from just being a guy to being someone important,” said Big E.
Big E is currently the Intercontinental Champion and has been excelling on SmackDown as a singles star. There are many fans who believe that he will get to have a main event run in the future.
