Tennis Legend Serena Williams' The Most Sensational Fashion Moments

The 23-time Grand Slam champion went pro in 1995 when she was just 14 years old. There was looking back since. She has written her name in golden letters in tennis history and will forever be a legend. But Serena Williams isn't just a tennis star, she has cemented her place on the fashion court through her amazing outfits and unique style. She is a star both on and off the court!

Tennis Serena

Throughout her entire career, she has projected her personal style through her bold, wonderful, and interesting outfit choices that were at times controversial. But that didn't stop her fashion statements, and she continued to give us fascinating style inspiration that got better and better with time. Apart from tennis, she launched a successful clothing line by Serena' in 2019 which is still going strong.

While her tennis career ended this year at US Open, we know that Serena Williams will continue to serve us her wonderful looks in the future at events and red carpets. To honor one of the greatest sportsmen of all time, I have rounded up some of the iconic and memorable tennis court outfits of her career. From color-blocked dresses to controversial catsuits, here are the top 25 looks dazzled by the tennis star and fashion icon!

Even the all-white Wimbledon requirement can't stop the fashion queen from exploring her style. The white blazer over the dress looks refined and chic. She wore a similar look at Wimbledon pairing her white dress with a trench coat. Suit up!

Easily one of the best on-court styles of her entire career. The gorgeous gradient white and teal dress paired perfectly with teal and white sneakers. Though she didn't win the tournament, she did win the fashion game.

Serena rocked this famous Virgil Abloh ballerina tutu number with grace and elegance. The one-sleeved brown and purple dress is one of her favorite costumes of all time to wear. Serena Williams and tutus are a match made in heaven!

Serena knows her tennis game well, and her fashion game maybe even better. She wore this vivid orange full-sleeved dress with a funnel turtleneck and black Nike cap.

Who could have thought to see a corset on the tennis court? But it's Serena Williams, so expect the unexpected. She wore a metallic silver corset over a white dress which was accessorized with a custom headband with her name written across it.

We left everyone awe-struck with this pure white and acid pink Nike outfit with a pleated color-coordinated skirt. She completed the look with acid pink colored armbands. She brought back the classic tennis skirt and we all thank her for that!

She opted for a color block peach and red asymmetrical high and low dress with a matching pair of sneakers. You can't miss the pop of color added by her navy blue underpants and the headband.

In the most controversial attire of her career, she wore a full black catsuit with mesh detailing and a pop of bright red when she returned to tennis after giving birth. Following this these catsuits were banned from subsequent tournaments. This striking look caused enough controversy.

The tennis star wore a combination of neons at the Australian Open. A neon yellow ensemble paired with hot pink with cut-out details and a sizzling top gave a statement both with her fashion and tennis.

A geometric printed peplum top with biker shorts looked diverse from her usual style. Though it was different in a good way. She later revealed that she was pregnant with her first child during the tournament. Superwoman, or rather superhuman!

Let's add some color to the game, she said and she did with a two-piece Nike ensemble. A bright and vibrant yellow-colored crop top with a matching pleated skirt did shine like a diamond in the sun. Now we get why tennis skirts are one of the biggest trends this year.

Continuing her winning streak she wore a hot pink leopard pink dress that contrasted perfectly with the green background. While hot pink might be a rage this year, Serena already hopped on the trend years ago. A trendsetter truly!

This was a controversial one when she wore a black catsuit at the US Open. The Puma catsuit was undoubtedly one of the most daring looks we ever saw on the tennis court.

Tennis ran in her veins and so did fashion. Even in her teenage years, she wished to explore her style. A young Serena paired her all-white Puma ensemble with a colorful braided hairstyle. A born fashionista!

The ban on catsuits didn't hold back the tennis player from exploring. She wore a sea green colored romper with black and white stripes. But it was the romper that caused the most attraction, it was the black fishnet stockings that won the day.

She knows how to strike the ball as well as style. An embellished mini dress with a pleated skirt in black with biker-style gladiator boots left everyone stunned. Damn, those Nike boots on the court!

A halter neck skater dress with a bright red sports bra with a criss-cross design paired with a set of red and white Nike sneakers. She sealed the Golden Slam with this historic Olympic win. A legend indeed!

She stunned in a white and orange Puma set pairing it with matching sneakers and a rhinestone bracelet.

A vivid cerulean cut-out dress by Nike defined the summer outfit at the French Open paired with a pair of black leggings. We see getting Miranda Priestly vibes here!

She wore a color-blocked one-legged bodysuit that changed her fashion game and looked amazing. The catsuit was beautifully paired with a minimal necklace and impressive headgear.

The leopard print sheer skirt was a bold choice that Serena Williams made and it did pay off. The chic style with a crop top and super shorts with a sheer cover-up was everything tennis was missing. Way to go girl!

This iconic transform dress in neon green and white by Nike will go down in the history of sports fashion. The tank top and skirt dress truly transformed her style added with those gladiator shoes.

She gave a glimpse of 90s fashion with her embellished black tank top and pleated denim mini skirt. The overall look is so edgy and different than what we usually get to see on a tennis court.

Take a splash into the water with her aqua green and orange dress. Those bold and vibrant sneakers are hitting the court in all the right places. It's trendy and fun, and we loved it!

She bid adieu to tennis with this magical ensemble that wasn't just glamourous like her but also conveyed her tennis journey. The Swarovski crystal-embellished skater dress paired with a studded hairband and silver jewelry was the perfect way to end her wonderful career. The skater skirt had six layers for every US Open trophy she won. That is so thoughtful and unbelievable!
