Serena Williams leaves little to imagination in red mini dress while flaunting curly hair in new pic
Serena Williams was named this year's GQ Woman of the Year and the Tennis superstar made sure to flaunt her stunning figure in a red mini dress during her GQ photoshoot.
The men's magazine recently revealed the covers of their upcoming issue, which features their annual "Men of the Year" award, but added a distinct touch - having Serena Williams as one of the people they honored. While this might be something that could be seen as an honor to many, The New York Times shared how the way they portrayed Williams as a "woman" of the year, complete with the quotation marks, was quickly denounced on social media.
Critics of the men's magazine called it out for the use of quotation marks for when they called Serena the "woman" of the year, which seems to have questioned her gender or even her femininity. However, it was quickly clarified by Mick Rouse, the magazine's research manager, who explained how the word "woman" had quotation marks on them due to Virgil Abloh's own handwriting and preference, as he frequently uses quotation marks when he writes.
Mr. Abloh most definitely did not mean any harm to the tennis champion, especially since the celebrated designer was the person who designed Serena's clothes at this year's US Open and therefore shares a close relationship with her.

Despite all the criticism that came with the cover, GQ chose to continue to honor Serena, whom they called "the world's most indomitable athlete", even calling her "2018 Champion of the Year".
There is definitely a lot to be thankful for if you are Serena Williams, as not only did she try and keep her career running, but she did this all while giving birth to her child and getting married to her husband, Alexis Ohanian Sr.
Despite all the achievements that Williams has garnered throughout her lifetime, she claims that her greatest achievement will always and forever be her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., and we are not surprised why. After all, individual awards may come and go, but a daughter's love is forever.
