Earlier this month, the French Open kicked off and we were certain we were going to see Serena Williams — not least because she is an actual tennis champion but because we knew she’d be back to make a statement.
Last year, Williams’ flair for fashion saw her dressed in a “warrior princess” catsuit and eventually, the French Tennis Federation officially banned the one-piece.
So, as she returned to the Open this year, she turned to fashion’s man of the moment, Virgil Abloh for help. The Louis Vuitton menswear and Off-White designer created an ensemble that perfectly reminded the world of who she is.
Wearing a black and white Off-White x Nike jacket, a sports bra and skort to warm up at Roland Garros ahead of her match against Russian tennis player Vitalia Diatchenko, Williams fronted the words “Queen,” “Champion,” “Mother,” and “Goddess” — all of which appeared on the custom-made pieces.
And if that’s not sending a message, we don’t know what is.
Also, she won that match — just FYI. You go girl!
Now, we’re pretty sure Serena Williams already met baby Archie for this particular reason.
