Serena Williams Is A Mother & Champion In Her Rule-Breaking French Open Look

If you thought Serena Williams was going to let the catsuit controversy of last year’s French Open cramp her style this year, you thought wrong.Williams walked on the court Monday for her match against Vitalia Diatchenko (which Williams won) in a Virgil Abloh-designed Nike outfit. The look, by Abloh’s Off-White label, consisted of a black and white pattern of text on a series of pieces. According to Footwear News, the words “Mother, Champion, Queen, Goddess” are printed all over the floor-length high-slit tiered skirt, fitted top, and jacket in French. The version of the skirt the three-time French Open champion actually played in was much shorter. View this post on Instagram Let the Roland Garros begin.
