Serena Williams is not only a tennis star; she's also a fashion queen.

The fashion-conscious 23 Grand Slam singles winner wore a personalized Nike shortened black bodysuit during her 6-1, 6-1 first round demolition of old foe Maria Sharapova at the US Open. As expected, it quickly became a hit among fans.

 

It seemed inspired from the 'catsuit’ she wore at the French Open in 2018

Her outfit could be considered daring... and she pulled it off in style.

Despite her ouster, we highlight Maria Sharapova’s US Open dress; it was so elegant that it could be worn on special occasions. 

The outfit had a defined waist, as the fabric is gathered for a fitted look inspired by dresses worn in New York’s posh club, the historic Studio 54.
