After the French Tennis Federation banned her Black Panther-inspired catsuit last year, Serena Williams shocked both the fashion and tennis worlds yet again by wearing a flashy custom Off-White x Nike outfit yesterday at the French Open.

The tennis superstar made her first appearance after the French ban in a eye-catching black-and-white tennis set with a mesh underlay, featuring French words like “mother”, “champion”, and “goddess”. And she won her match, obviously.

Throughout Williams‘ tennis career, she has often used fashion creatively to craft her statement to the public. She has worn tutus, denim skirts, and even statement jewellery on the court.

“This is where a lot of people see me and I’m a super creative. It’s like, how do I express who I am? That’s one thing I love about clothes. You can express how you’re feeling and who you are by what you wear. I didn’t want to have the exact same look that everyone else was wearing. I like to stand out.”

Serena Williams‘ new crop-top-and-skirt fit for her opening match this year was designed by Virgil Abloh, who also made the memorable tutu that she wore during last year’s US Open.
