Winning! 9 Times Serena Williams Shut Down the Red Carpet

Winning! 9 Times Serena Williams Shut Down the Red Carpet

She's always ready for the ball.

By Jenny Berg

Yes! Serena Williams won Wimbledon on Saturday, making us all cheer for the woman who routinely smokes her opponents in bright-pink leopard spots. But Serena's strong sense of style doesn't end on the court. The athlete—who once wanted to design wedding dresses— has her own fashion label for HSN. She's also a front-row fixture at fashion shows, and a regular stunner at red-carpet events. In honor of the Wimbledon champ, here are her nine most (grand) slammin' looks, ever.

9. At the Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

In 2015, Serena stepped out to the New York event in a shimmery, semi-sheer black dress from Gucci. She accented the look with pointy silver stilettos, drop earrings, and soft hair and makeup.

8. Elton John's Oscar Viewing Party

Serena's a regular on the Oscar-party scene. In 2011, she attended Elton John's glitzy event in a strapless gown accented with ruffles and feathers. She also wore dangling earrings and a dark mani—but we think the bangs were her best accessory.

7. The Sony Ericsson Open

At the 2009 kick-off bash, Serena showed off her love for leopard spots in a curve-clinging dress. She took the sexy look one step farther with stacks of gold bracelets and soft waves. 

6. 'Serena' Premiere

In June, she hit the 'Serena' premiere in a glittering gown by Laquan Smith. Starburst earrings by H. Stern sparkled in her ears.

5. The 17th Annual ESPY Awards

At the 2009 event, the tennis star wore a gorgeous teal gown by Roberto Cavalli. Her short hair was arranged in classic screen-siren waves.

4. The Met Gala

At the 2011 Met Gala, which paid homage to designer Alexander McQueen, Serena wore an unforgettable look by Oscar de la Renta. She accessorized with stacks of diamond bracelets and a show-stopping fascinator.

3. The Vanity Fair Oscar Party

In 2014, she wore a sexy cut-out dress by Michael Costello to the Hollywood fete. 

2. The Wimbledon Winners Ball

To celebrate her victory on July 10, Serena slipped on a floor-sweeping coral gown with a bejeweled bodice. In keeping with the summer's trends, she wore minimal makeup, opting to let her flawless complexion shine through.

1. Wimbledon Championships Dinner

As we now know, Serena effortlessly turns on the glam for the red carpet. But our favorite look of all time was the regal pink dress she wore for the 2015 event. The champ looked stunning in the beautifully embroidered gown.
