What They Wore: Rena
There was a time when watching Serena Williams march out for the Round 1 match at a slam involved a lot of cringing. There was the catsuit. The leather jacket. The in-your-face blings.
She pulled it off, if only because she was utterly unapologetic about being who she is.
Was it Nike? Or has age mellowed the wild child Serena Williams of yesteryear? These days, Serena Williams is tastefully dressed in well-cut outfits and festive colours.
In fact, I can’t even remember anything she wore this year that I didn’t like.
If I had to pick, Serena’s strawberries-and-cream inspired Wimbledon dress with matching bolero and headband would be my favourite.
But if fashion is all about a certain attitude, then the most striking thing about Serena Williams is her fearlessness in whatever she wears. Can you think of one other person who is capable of making a white and pink, strawberries-inspired dress look so fierce?
Love that photo.
