Twenty-one time grand slam winner Serena Williams, who epitomizes style and grace both on and off the court, is once again in the sartorial spotlight. This time, she's the cover star of New York Magazine's highly anticipated fashion issue.
Williams is no stranger to garnering attention from the fashion industry, what with a line for HSN and countless magazine covers, including two for Vogue, under her belt. She might not be great at selling clothes (the mag calls her "HSN’s least comfortable saleswoman"), but is quite the opposite when it comes to wearing them. This cover, which shows off Williams' curves in a form-fitting Elizabeth and James dress, is no exception.
Inside the mag, the fiercely talented athlete got real about dealing with racism, her historic career thus far and one of the more... stylish things she and her sister have accomplished. "We brought fashion back to tennis," she said.
Head to New York Magazine to read the entire interview, and be sure to pick up your own copy of the mag, on newsstands Aug 10.
