Tennis legend Serena Williams debuted an instantly-iconic outfit during the last U.S. Open of her career on Monday, donning a figure skating-inspired dress with sheer sleeves and a six-layer skirt.
The Nike dress had donned diamonds and crystals embedded on the outside with a matching jacket and tote bag. The skirt is constructed of six layers to commemorate her six singles wins at the U.S. Open throughout her career, according to ESPN.
Williams was also wearing a pair of NikeCourt Flare 2 shoes which displayed a diamond swoosh sign with her initials “SW” in rose gold on the side of the shoe.
Throughout her career, Williams’ outfits have been a staple on the tennis court. She turned heads during the 2019 U.S. Open by donning a black short bodysuit, which was decidedly shorter and more daring than a controversial outfit she wore the year before. In 2018, Williams wore another bodysuit as an ode to Wakanda, the African-inspired world from the Marvel film “Black Panther.” That outfit, considered risqué at the time, got her banned by the French Open.
After earning 23 Grand Slam titles in the singles division, Williams will retire from the sport of tennis after the 2022 U.S. Open.
