As it turns out, florals for spring can in fact be groundbreaking — at least when Serena Williams is behind the look. Since her pregnancy announcement on Snapchat in April, the tennis champion and soon-to-be mother has continued to step out in style, from the Met Gala to the Monaco Grand Prix. True to form, Williams jetted off to Paris for the French Open on Wednesday, this time looking refreshed and radiant in head-to-toe athleisure.
Williams’ surprise appearance at the sporting event was in support of sister Venus Williams, who won her second round, 6-3, 6-1, against Japanese opponent Kurumi Nara. Serena kept it casual yet stylish in the stands, sporting a ditsy floral printed zip-up windbreaker. With sister Venus having confirmed today that Serena is expecting a girl, the choice for Williams to don flowers seems both timely and symbolic.
Serena’s white Nike tank top underneath her jacket featured a beaming smiley face. The cheery graphic complemented her sunny energy and 6-month pregnancy glow to a T. She completed her off-duty style with black Nike sneakers featuring a gold check and dark shades.
As for attending the French open and not playing? Serena simply stated, “It feels fine … It’s just a part of my life.”
