    Default Serena Williams - Allure - February 2019




    On not having many role models to look up to: “There weren’t a lot of role models for me to look up to [in the sport] and say, ‘Wow, I want to look like this!’… I kind of had to be that role and be that person,” she says. “Venus and I started out being successful, continued to be successful, and we were also unapologetically ourselves. We were not afraid to wear braids. We weren’t afraid to be black in tennis. And that was different.”


    What would she tell her daughter Olympia about beauty?
    “When I tell her she’s beautiful, I want to teach her that she’s beautiful from the inside,” Williams says. “Giving is beauty. Being kind and humble is the ultimate beauty.” “I want her to know that being strong is never easy. Not in this world we are living in…. Standing up for yourself is not going to be easy, but it’s always eventually respected,” Williams says. “Those are the people who’ve made a difference in this world, people that stand up for what’s right. If you look at history, those are the people that you really remember. And at the time, oh, my God, it seemed impossible.”

    Don't care for the fuzzy dress, but I love the red one. I'd like to see it from the front.

    She's gotta do something about those eyebrows. Otherwise the shots are okay.
