Serena Williams Responds To Catsuit Ban By Competing In A Tutu

A couple of days ago news broke that the French Tennis Federation wasn’t feeling Serena Williams’ Wakanda -inspired catsuit at the French Open, and told her that she could no longer wear that attire again. Well, everyone was waiting to see what Serena was going to step out in on the court at Tuesday’s U.S. Open and sis definitely came to slay!

According to Elle, Serena wore a custom Nike tutu designed by Louis Vuitton artistic director Virgil Abloh.

Via Elle:

“The single-sleeved dress created a one-shoulder effect with brown paneling and featured a full tulle skirt, a look she finished with a pair of compressing fishnet tights and a blush Nike t-shirt during her warm up.”

Serena spoke with reporters during her post match conference and said she had been wanting to wear a tutu for a minute now.

“[It’s] kind of aerodynamic with the one arm free. It feels really good,” she said. “Yeah, the tutu is easy to play in because I practiced in it before. That was fun.”
