Serena Williams is taking over the fashion streets of Paris!
The 23-time Grand Slam Champion recently proved that she not only dominates the tennis court with her powerful serves, but she is also a fashion diva.
The 40-year-old looked breathtaking in an effortlessly casual yet captivating ensemble from her independent fashion line, S by Serena.
Serena Williams Shows Off Her Curves In The Riley Dress
On Tuesday, March 8, the pro-athlete shared two pictures of herself on Instagram, sporting a black and red bodycon outfit from her clothing line.
The apparel, named the Riley dress, featured a medium-length ruched gown with a convertible crossover neckline and beautiful rose patterns.
The curve-hugging sheer outfit exposed its inner layer, fully-lined with the same floral fabric, giving the black and red ensemble a casual yet flirtatious flair.
Williams stood tall and proud as she rocked the off-the-shoulder look alongside a short blonde bob with black undertones, a gold necklace, her gorgeous diamond ring, and black pumps.
These stunning snaps were taken in the courtyard of what appeared to be a massive property as the mother-of-one posed in front of a mansion surrounded by several green hedges.
Although this post was sizzling hot, the “Being Serena” star didn’t toot her horn in the caption. Instead, she kept it simple by informing fans of her location and outfit name by writing, “Paris🌹@serena Riley Dress.”
In less than an hour after promoting her fashion brand, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model’s post garnered over 20,000 likes and 750 comments.
Naturally, fans were impressed by the Riley dress, especially how it looked on the tennis Queen. However, this wasn’t the first time Williams teased fans with her fashion brand.

Last year, TENNIS reported that the Olympic gold medalist had established herself as more than a No. 1 ranker with her line of womenswear.
On August 4, 2021, the 40-year-old entrepreneur wowed her Instagram followers with the debut of a new collection called ‘Xena Be Strong Leggings.’
The fashion designer announced the apparel’s arrival with a white-themed photoshoot, in which she wore a long-sleeved white crop top with cut-outs on each arm paired with the white leggings.
As the collection name suggests, the words ‘Be strong’ were written across the bottom of the pants and completed the chic outfit with red ankle-strap heels from Stuart Weitzman.
More eye-catching outfits can be found on the S by Serena’s website, which featured “bold and inspired dresses with thoughtful details, diverse styles, and inclusive sizing.”
Some of these beautiful collections created by the tennis legend include; the Ava one-sleeved mini dress, the Sophia sheer midi dress with flattering ruching, and the Riley midi dress either in black or cheetah patterns.
For those who wanted to support their favorite athlete, Williams’s collections also contained her exclusive World merch designs and the perfect accessories for each outfit.
The Tennis Icon Has Been Prepared To Retire For ‘Over A Decade’
Last month, The Blast revealed that Williams was not afraid of stepping down from her pedestal as an athlete, record-breaker, and queen of the tennis world.
During a candid interview, the philanthropist confessed that she had been preparing for her retirement from a young age. In her words:
“I am prepared for that day. I’ve been prepared for that day for over a decade… If you’ve seen ‘King Richard,’ you know that my dad always said you got to prepare, so I’ve been prepared for that.”
The other half of the Grand Slam sisters explained that the essential thing in the world wasn’t her successful career but her wonderful family.
The S by Serena founder has been married to Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder and executive chairman of Reddit since 2017, and the loving couple shares a daughter, Olympia.
However, having a wealthy husband wasn’t the athlete’s fallback plan after retirement as the entrepreneur has invested in numerous startups and other businesses.
The “Venus and Serena” star also confessed that she would love to expand her family but couldn’t find the right time because of her busy schedule.
The 40-year-old stated that she knew her maternal clock was ticking, but the Grand Slam women’s doubles title holder couldn’t conceive until the pressures in her life decreased.
