Serena Williams looked unrecognizable in her latest Instagram share. The 38-year-old tennis superstar whose trademark teeny-tiny Nike dresses and natural-curled hair are now as iconic as her power serves appeared in a photo promoting her 2018-founded Serena clothing line over the weekend – the line’s t-shirts made headlines for selling out in just 20 minutes as the former world no. 1’s brand took off over 18 months ago.
Keep scrolling for the photo, Serena admitting to side-eyeing her own daughter when she coughed, plus the Disney dress that “didn’t fit” – now clocking over 1.2 million views.
Seen below, Serena’s photo showed her in full boss mode – no two ways about it. The Serena CEO was seen seated on a curved white chair as she held a gold-plated and retro rotary phone while on a call – the 23-time Grand Slam winner was also flaunting her sensational curves and muscle machine of a body in a skin-tight micro dress in geometric black-and-white. The leggy look also came complete with a bombshell finish as Serena wore her dyed blonde hair poker straight, plus cat-eye glasses.
A caption from the star read:
“Ring Ring ? It’s me reminding you that I’m going live on @Serena for our second #SerenaSaturdays tomorrow at 7pm EST. We polled our S by Serena community this week and you all wanted to see me style our amazing intimates. Can’t wait to see everyone there! #BeSeenBeHeard.”
Currently sitting at over 183,000 likes, Serena’s photo also generated a giant wave of comments.
“C’mon hair!!!” one user wrote.
“That dress,” another said.
A comparison to reality star Nene Leakes did come in, with a fan shouting out “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star: “C’mon Serena Leakes!!!” they wrote.
Serena, who was one of the first celebrities to announce going into “solitude” back in March, has been sharing both her quarantine life and – it would seem – her search engine habits. Serena’s recent Instagram Live saw a fan ask her what she last Googled.
“Definitely recipe, I was looking at a bread recipe. I was just thinking to make some bread on my own. Could I just sound blind talking about bread, who talks about bread,” Serena replied.
Serena has been baking at-home French bread baguettes. Of course, the Disney dress video – seen below – showed Serena baking pies, even if they were via a microwave.
Serena’s 2-year-old daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. has been in the news by virtue of her famous mom, with Serena’s COVID-19 anxiety seeing her admit to snapping at the toddler after she coughed.
“And by anxiety I mean I’m just on edge. Any time anyone sneezes around me or coughs I get crazy. I don’t hang out with anyone, and when I say anyone I mean my daughter,” Serena said on Instagram, adding:
“She coughed, I got angry and gave her a side-eye. I gave her that ‘angry Serena’ and then I got sad. I was like, ‘Is she ok? Is there something wrong with my daughter? Is there anything I can do?’”
