Serena Williams flaunts ample cleavage in $8K low-cut sequined dress while posing with husband
Serena Williams, one of the most important tennis players in recent history, took to Instagram to share photos of the beautiful dress she wore while attending the Brand Genius Awards next to husband, Alexis Ohanian.
One of the images that Serena uploaded showed her flaunting her cleavage in a deep-cut $8,000 dress that had a mix of checkered cloth and sparkling space gray colored sequins that made her look gorgeous.
Accessorizing her look, she sported a pair of exquisite diamond earrings and silver sparkling heels. Beside Serena stood her 35-year-old husband, Alexis, who looked dapper in a black tuxedo, white dress shirt, and a black tie.
As soon as the tennis player uploaded that photo, her followers took to the comment section to share their thoughts. One of them pointed out that she didn’t know what Serena was wearing but it was “hot” as the textures, patterns, and different fabrics looked amazing.
ALEXIS AND SERENA’S LOVE STORY
Serena and Alexis have been together for a while now. They announced their engagement in late-December 2016 and revealed she was expecting her first daughter about four months later. After giving birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia on September 1, 2017, the couple tied the knot on November 16 of the same year.
During the Awards night, Serena received the trade publication's "2018 Brand Visionary Award." Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue, presented the award.
GQ’S “WOMAN OF THE YEAR”
It is not the first time that Serena made headlines in this month as she was selected the “Woman of the Year” by GQ magazine. However, the fact that the publication wrote “Woman” between quoting marks attracted a lot of criticism.

GQ chose Michael B. Jordan, Henry Golding, and Jonah Hill as its “Men of the Year,” showing them in marvelous poses with striking labels. Jordan, for example, was dubbed “The Leader;” Golding, on the other hand, was “The Star;” Hill was called “The Director;” and Williams was identified as “The Champion.”
Those "quotation marks" though...— Angie Greaves (@AngieGreaves) November 13, 2018
I'm not sure if that sits well with me. https://t.co/H8bCs79fW0
The magazine got designer and Williams collaborator Virgil Abloh to handwrite the word “Woman” and cross out “Men.” However, Abloh chose to write “Woman” between quoting marks, what made people on Twitter comment on it.
COMPARING IT WITH THE PREVIOUS EDITION
Writer E. Alex Jung took his time to put together the 2017 GQ cover of the “Woman of the Year” next to this year’s edition. The previous woman selected was Gal Gadot, who was dubbed as the “Wonder Woman of the Year.”
Because it was handwritten by Virgil Abloh of Off-White, who has styled everything in quotation marks as of late (see Serena's US Open apparel that he designed)— Mick Rouse (@mickrouse) November 12, 2018
DEFENDING THE DECISION
Knowing how bad Williams cover was received, Mick Rouse, the Research Manager for GQ Magazine, took his time to explain why they chose the quotation marks for “Woman.”
“Because it was handwritten by Virgil Abloh of Off-White, who has styled everything in quotation marks as of late (see Serena's US Open apparel that he designed),” admitted Rouse.
