We know Serena Williams’ passion for fashion, and for this latest fashion, she shone brightly in the courts of Flushing Meadows. The player made a big comeback at Arthur Ashe Stadium on Monday, wearing crystals in her hair, a shiny, star-studded jacket, a shiny train over her skirt, and shoes studded with 400 diamonds. The rave audience welcomed their queen.
To create her outfit, Serena Williams was inspired by figure skating competition dresses. And beware, everything has been thought out to the smallest detail. Designed by Nike, the skirt has six layers in reference to Serena Williams’ six US Open titles, a very symbolic detail for the champ. The black part is studded with star-shaped crystals and points towards the New York sky.
“I find it great that an athlete like Serena Williams is inspired by figure skating and embraces the shimmering side of our clothing, which is sometimes criticized for our sport,” said Mathieu Caron, who created the costumes for the Olympic champions. Scott Muir and French couple Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Céziron in particular. “It is a great appreciation for the aesthetics of figure skating and for the work of all the skate and dance costume designers. I am very proud.”
In addition to being the greatest tennis player ever, Serena Williams has dictated her dressing style. A true fashion icon, she launched her brand S by Serena in 2019, and her own jewelry brand. She often attended the Met Gala in New York, which is considered the biggest fashion evening of the year, and is often seen alongside her friend, the editor of the American magazine Vogue magazine Anna Wintour at fashion shows in Paris, Milan or New York.
On the tennis courts, Serena Williams has managed to innovate with more extravagant outfits than ever before. Denim mini skirts, leopard or leopard print dresses, ballerina skirts or bodycon jumpsuit.
“I dared. Him look He wasn’t always successful, but he always crossed the line. This last sparkly outfit, complete with crystals and diamonds, is stunning. It marks the end of the Queen’s career, no less, says fashion columnist Lolita Dandoi candidly.
This outfit was so predictable, Serena revealed a few items on Instagram before the match. I think there are a lot of women out there who would like to wear this outfit, especially the jacket, even outside the tennis courts.

She adds that Serena Williams’ daughter Olympia wore a star-studded outfit to match her mother and had white pearls in her hair. The same hairstyle Serena Williams had in 1999 when she won the US Open, her first major tournament, at the age of 17. “Either she was wearing pearls or me. I wanted to do it, but I didn’t have the time,” Serena Williams said after Monday night’s win over Danka Kovinich.
“Monday night we saw Serena’s development through her daughter. There are always meanings in Serena Williams’ clothes, they are so desirable, they are connected to her career or even to one of her brands. “She’s also a businesswoman,” says Lolita Dandwe.
In fact, her black shoes, the Nike Court Flare 2 style, were created in collaboration with Serena Williams Jewerly. There’s her initials on the side, Swoosh set with diamonds, then on her laces, a solid gold gem, set with 400 hand-set diamonds engraved with ‘Queen’ and ‘Mama’.
“I’ve never worn better shoes than Omnium, they are amazing, amazing and shiny,” Serena Williams said in a video on TikTok.
A Nike ambassador since 2004, in 2021, within the brand, Serena Williams created the Serena Williams Design Crew, which celebrates diversity and builds on boldness. Once again, on Monday evening, she shined by highlighting her difference and originality that will remain engraved in the memory of tennis fans.
