Serena Williams stepped out on the court on Monday night quite literally in her final US Open appearance. Her Nike dress is studded with rhinestones so it should make her hair look sparkly too, right? And it was. Her hairstylist, Nikki Nelms, placed realistic Swarovski crystals in Williams’ hair and the results were breathtaking.
Williams’ 4-year-old daughter, Olympia, wore a matching outfit to cheer on her mother from the stands. Her tiny Nike dress matches “an embellished shirt and tutu inspired by the night sky above central court in Flushing, NY,” according to Williams on Instagram. In a press release and on social media, Nike announced: “Serena worked with our design team to come up with a final mix for the tournament that will keep her comfortable and confident. Her custom NikeCourt Flare 2 shoes are just as vibrant as hers. Featuring dresses studded with diamonds and @serenawilliamsjewelry deubrés on laces that read ‘mama’ and ‘queen.’ “
Conformity isn’t the only way for mother and daughter to get together. Although Williams wore crystals all over her hair for this match, she usually wears braids. In 1999, Williams won her first US Open championship when she wore white bead braids. Is it a coincidence that exactly how Olympia wore her hair in the stands? We doubt that. What a sweet tribute to her mother, who just became one of the greatest athletes ever.
Williams doesn’t just look great – she plays great, too. Based on CNN (Listen, we’re not sports people here), Williams opened the singles with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Danka Kovinić in the first round of the US Open. On Wednesday, she will open her doubles match against her sister Venus, as well as facing Estonia’s Anett Kontaveit in the singles round of 64, in the first meeting of their careers. We’re not 100% sure what that means but we’ll be totally watching Williams make history.
