Serena Williams proved herself a fashion goddess posing in a little black dress in a new photo. The form-fitting outfit featured a creative inclusion promoting safety and style.
Pro tennis player Serena Williams gave the new generation of supermodels a run for their career in a recent social media shot. The 39-year-old set the internet ablaze with photos of herself rocking a dashing black dress.
The sleeveless outfit hugged her figure in the right places, putting the athlete's eye-popping curves on display. The post featured a two-photo collage, with the first showing the icon striking a simple pose, her arms hanging down her hips on both sides.

In the second shot, the bodycon dress appeared tweaked a little, with the loose turtle-neck feature on the gown extended upward to shield Williams' nose and mouth, doubling as a gaiter mask.
The 23-time grand slam winner paired the little black dress with black, high-heeled shoes and a classy gold bracelet. Her caption read:
"I am staying sexy with a bit of protection this summer in this little black dress by @serena. Hurry, they are going fast."
The mother-of-one donned a similar outfit weeks ago during a photoshoot for the @serena collection. However, for the previous shot, the star rocked the attire in a neon blue shade, and her daughter was on hand to share her spotlight in a matching princess dress.
The mother-daughter pair also showed off their modeling prowess in March when they twinned up for their first-ever joint fashion campaign. Williams and Olympia Ohanian looked magical in matching black ensembles as they promoted the Stuart Weitzman campaign, Steps To Follow.
For the reception, Williams changed into a white Versace gown adorned with pearls and feathers.
The tennis legend's fashion antics also extend to her career, from daring skirts to Black-panther-inspired catsuits. She single-handedly resurrected the Flo-jo fashion trend when she stormed the court in a one-legger Nike catsuit during her opening game at this year's Australian Open.
Speaking on the inspiration behind the custom red, black and pink unitard, she said, "I was inspired by Flo-Jo, who was a wonderful track athlete, amazing athlete when I was growing up. Watching her fashion, just always changing."
The athlete explored her fashion fantasies to the fullest during her wedding to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in 2017. For the occasion, the fashion enthusiast rocked three different wedding gowns.
The nuptials took place in New Orleans in the presence of 200 guests. The first dress of the day was a strapless princess ball gown by Sarah Burton, with which she soared down the aisle.
For the reception, Williams changed into a white Versace gown adorned with pearls and feathers, which took five embroiderers and 1500 hours to produce.
Finally, she switched it up to a short Versace flared dress with feathery details. Serena Williams sure knows how to make an entrance both on and off the court!
