Serena Williams in Victoria Beckham

Posted on August 23, 2012

Miss Serena is here to start off your day right.

Serena Williams makes her way into ‘The Late Show With David Letterman’ in New York City in a Victoria Beckham dress paired with Christian Louboutin pumps.

Christian Louboutin ‘Decora’ Pump, $3, 895

Bam. Who needs coffee?

Serena’s always been a bit iffy on the style front, but she’s been improving radically lately. Who know that Victoria Beckham would be her sartorial savior? This looks so ridiculously good on her that we urge her to go out and procure Miss Vicki’s whole line immediately. The clean lines, bold colors, and body-con silhouettes are exactly what she should be wearing every time she steps out.

And the hair is giving us life.

We know we went off on platform pumps yesterday as tools of Satan, but really, it’s the solid-color ones that set us off. These are pretty fabulous and the design prevents her from looking like she has hooves. Besides, from a proportions perspective, they really work for her. Put these same shoes on some stick thin starlet and she’d look ridiculous, but put them on the powerful Miss Serena and they look kickass (literally; girl could KICK your ASS with those things).

      DAY-UM. keep it up girl. you are making a fashion comeback. Snaps! 

      • Jill_3

         Head to toe- GASP. Her hair is SUBLIME. Her dress is killa. Her shoes make me go weak at the knees with lust.

    • Donyelle


    • Kiltdntiltd

      Two problems for me.  I’m good with it till she turns around, and we see the heinous exposed zipper thing going on. (sigh)
      And those SHOES are horrifying. That said.  That is one seriously hot woman who looks her absolute best in body conscious stuff.

      • call_me_schmeg

        if you don’t like the exposed zipper, then you won’t like vickie’s line. it’s kinda her thing. 

        • Kiltdntiltd

          That’s okay, I won’t be wearing any of her stuff anyhow. (winking) Actually, I like a fair amount of her clothes.

        • l_c_ann

          If she’s going commando, that exposed zipper is going to be a pain in the butt to sit on.

          • AudreysMom

             :) and cold, too!

          • TieDye64

            literally, ha!

        • Candigirl1968

          That silly zipper is everybody’s thing right now.  I will be so happy when it goes away.  

          Also, Serena needs to tone down her weaves.

          • e jerry powell

            That’s that good Malaysian hair, I bet. The stuff Vivica likes so much.

      • Brian @ PWYJudges

        I totally agree with you on the exposed zipper! Not a trend I think I will ever get behind. But I do LOVE those shoes!

        • Kiltdntiltd

          Then we must agree to disagree on this one. Though I like the fact that they are patterned, since the dress is so dead simple, The shape of them distorts appearance of the foot, which I nearly always dislike.

          • Funkykatt

            I don’t care for the zipper too. Hopefully that and plastic shoes will go away soon. 

            • Kiltdntiltd

               “plastic shoes” ARGHHH!!! (bile rises in throat)

          • luciaphile

            TY, I was trying to figure out why I wasn’t feeling the shoes and this is it exactly. Love the dress on her though.

        • MoHub

           To me, exposed zippers just look as if the seamster didn’t have the time or ability to make a proper zipper placket. The only place I want to see a zipper like that is on the front of a bomber jacket or a parka, not on a dress.

      • Gayer Than Thou

        I like the shoes, but the zipper must die. I still give it two thumbs up.

        • Kiltdntiltd

           In this particular case where it really loses me is the under booty part of it where its buckling. I realize that is due to her walking, but it really calls attention to itself, which it should not.

          • Kayceed

            I’m with you – lose the platform, lose the exposed zipper and – loosen up slightly the area just under that glorious posterior of hers so as to highlight rather than actually expose the lines of it – and she would be one elegant piece of work. 

          • Gayer Than Thou

            I’m noticing she has an odd tan line above her ankle on at least one leg.  I’m not going to be too critical, since her day job is athlete and not model, but it’s a little distracting.

            • Kiltdntiltd

               Good Eye!!

            • kimmeister

              I noticed it too, and at first I thought it was a sock tan line.  But then I remembered that she likely wears those little anklet socks, so what the heck?

            • Pat Strong

              she’s an athlete first and usually has her ankles taped when playing in a tournament and perhaps everyday at practice.  for this reason those shoes, while attractive, are painful for me to look at knowing what a pounding her feet take playing tennis at such a high level

            • Renee-amanda Heywood

              Yeah, but those shoes are so bloody hot, they’re like a reward for having to wear trainers all day.

          • bellafigura1

             Politely disagree! That line calling attention to itself right there is precisely the point. Especially under that tennislicious booty.

      • Tatiana Luján

        absolutely agree. That exposed zipper made me think about Project Runway and I don’t think that’s a good sign.

      • Vanja

        I’m not keen on the shoes either and the zipper ruins the clean lines of that otherwise very nice dress.

      • ballerinawithagun

        As usual, you beat me to it! I hate exposed zippers. A well placed strip of black bias fabric would be more comfortable and wouldn’t have the unsightly bumps and rolls detracting from her fabulous backside. Love the embellishment on the shoes but hate the shape. But, she is still hot, hot, hot!

      • Little_Olive

        I know I will sound like a total sartorial prude, but yes, could those platforms please go away? Actually I don’t care of they are still around, can someone be honest and just admit they are hooker shoes?

        • Kiltdntiltd

           You sound no more like a sartorial prude than anyone else who has disliked platforms any of the other times they have reared their heads.  There were naysayers in the 70s and in the 40s as well.  And who knows but that there were people who disliked them during the Rennaisance and Tudor periods, when they had a long run.  Although during that time they really were pretty much the province of prostitutes.

          • Little_Olive

            Thanks for the validation!
            My mom and aunts had really cool platforms in the 70’s; kinda fug, yes, but made with humor. These take themselves too serioulsy, in a way. To sum up, (as I’ve said here before), I bet no one sees a woman “in real life” wearing something of the sort and thinks “there is a classy lady”.  

            • Kiltdntiltd

               Well as they said in Latin class, “degustibus non disputandem est”

      • formerlyAnon

         I am sick of the exposed zipper, especially as it has lost any ‘edge’ it once had. But given the pantheon of Serena looks, I won’t quibble.  I also generally dislike the platform hoof look, but I have to admit that if it’s ever going to work, it works here (for me) because she’s a big, powerful woman and it’s [almost] proportional.

      • sockandaphone

        i do hate exposed zippers, specially since my mom is a seamstress and she screams bloody murder at any zipper that is not 100% covered. So she passed that onto me I guess. Invisible zippers or bust!

        • kimmeister

          My first attempt at reading your last sentence had been imagining how her bust could be invisible.  Now I’m laughing at myself.

          • sockandaphone

            hey, as long as it makes you laugh, im okay!

      • Thanatoid

        Yo…you haven’t a clue here, pal.  The shoes are rockin’ and the red matches the red in the dress perfectly.  The zipper is striking detail…love it.  I’m sure you’d look pretty gag-worthy wearing this ensemble as it’s way too feminine for cross-dressing.. but if I had the money and the more athletic physique like hers…I’d do it. 

    • Richard Harper

      She looks amazing.  Truly amazing.  And I hate that trendy exposed zipper thing, but I’m willing to overlook it for this.  Dayum.

    • Alyson Epstein

      how is this not  a WERQ?!

      • Squarah

        My thoughts exactly! She looks fantastic.

      • Introspective

        WERQ was the first word I shouted when I beheld all of Serena’s fierceness this morning!

        Snaps was the second!

        That is all.

      • Tom and Lorenzo

        Why does it have to be? Why are half the responses asking this question? WERQ is not some sort of prestigious award or something; it’s just a way to provide some variety to the posts.

        • Erica

          I don’t know guys.  I thought I heard somewhere that there were going to be yearly WERQ statues awarded, with the requisite pre-awards ceremony WERQ red carpet.  Man, if a celebrity was to win a WERQ from what he/she wore on the WERQ red carpet, how pretigious would THAT award be?

        • sabinewaugh

          I hope you gents see our WERQ-a-philia as a compliment to you: your judgments are so spot-on that a WERQ *does* begin to seem like a special asterisk for a fantastic look!

    • gabbilevy

      … I still need my coffee though.

    • Shannon Beamer

      This freaking made my day.  Thank you, gentlemen.  She looks unbelievable and I need that dress. 

      • Renee-amanda Heywood

        Me too… and I’d need to borrow her body as well!

    • Sobaika

      FABULOUS! Major hair envy.

      Vicki B. is becoming quite the designer. Bold, tasteful, and functional clothing.

      • Sartorial_She

         I couldn’t agree more! Oh to be able to afford one of her designs.

    • call_me_schmeg

      those shoes look like a sombrero for the feet. this is a compliment. ole!

    • Terri Smith

      I can’t stand Serena Williams, but I have to admit she looks fabulous.

    • Kim Khanh Nguyen

      First thoughts in my head on seeing this pic. “DAAAAMMMMMN, SERENA!!” She looks amazing!

    • jmorino08

      She is rocking that dress, but I disagree on the shoes. Looks like she’s wearing wooden Dutch clogs with a stiletto attached.

    • MajorBedhead

      Holy shit. That woman’s ass is SMOKIN’ hot. *fans face* She looks fantastic.

      The hair. So jealous of the hair. I don’t care if it’s a weave or not, it’s awesome. 

    • Verascity

      This is a WERQ for me. She’s literally never looked better.

    • NurseEllen

      She absolutely DOES look kick-ass, but again I must quibble with the exposed zipper, and one which goes from neck to hem, no less.  Does that thing really unzip all the way?  I think the black contrast on the reverse of the dress is very eye-catching, but I HATE seeing the zipper teeth in there, too.  And she needs to stand up straighter.

    • Patricia Gillett

      OK, I’m still anti-platform pump but if there was one person on the planet who could pull them off, it’s Miss Serena.  Her bod makes me want to spend the next five days at the gym! 

      • AudreysMom

         Serena could kick our collective asses, regardless of the shoes she wears.

        • formerlyAnon

           With both hands tied behind her back.

    • EveEve

      You know why this works?  Because Serena has proven herself.  She’s not some barely-born starlet whose handlers have pushed her out onto the red carpet and coached her how to pose for the cameras.  She’s a world champion athlete with massive self-confidence and a body to match, and she’s not hiding anything behind big bows, stretch lace or putty platforms.  [And look!  No clutch being shoved front and center!]

    • holdmewhileimnaked

      she doesnt get a WERQ from you guys? has she ever looked better? has virtually anybody? only thing wrong is the stoopid PR visible zipper. but thats not her fault. & the shoes are almost worth their damnable price.

    • Funkykatt

      She’s so shapely, she almost looks cartoonish, but in a good way.  

    • teensmom99

      Amazing.  And I’m kind of shocked that Posh’s clothes work on someone with an actual body.  I thought you had to have her negative-body fat kind of body for her clothes to work but this is a triumph. And as soon as I saw this, I thought “here are the platforms that work.”  Thanks, TLo for explaining why it all works.

      • Lucy145

        I felt that same surprise that the VB line would accommodate a womanly body. But it does and I love the way it looks on Miss Serena.

    • jimmack

      The shoes are crazy cool. Butt zippers are back! I guess all those designers in season 9 – or was it 8 – (they all blend together since the swich to Lifetime) were right! Readers, does that exposed zipper leave unslighty impressions on your back and butt?

      But, girl, as mama would say, “shoulders back, stand up straight!”

    • SapphoPoet

      I think this is the best I’ve ever seen her look. I thought the exact same thing about the platform pumps. I’m not a fan, generally, but the pattern really helps avoid the hoof-look. I’m not so sold on that ginormous black zipper running up the back of the dress, but if anyone can carry that off, it’s Serena Williams. 

    • muzan-e

      That hair. I want to print this out and show it to every girl I’ve known who struggled to get comfortable with her wild, wonderful curls and a culture that would prefer that she straighten them now, please.

      Love it.

    • minnye

      Fabulosity, personified.

    • Stella Zawistowski

      WOW. On anyone else I’d have quibbled with it being so tight on the bottom, but DAMN, she makes it work. Makes it WERQ, even.

    • PhillipWilde

      YES MA’AM!

    • Cindi Williams

      TLo needs to get out of my head. I was just thinking yesterday that my real problem with platform pumps is the solid color ones. Ones with a pattern or some bling on them look more like works of art than hooves.

    • EditKitten

      Man, she is just utterly gorgeous.

      (The Times’ Sunday magazine story coming up this weekend is awesome; the part about Serena living in Paris … sigh:

    • MissMariRose

      I think this is a WERQ. Everything from head to toe is beautiful and absolutely perfect for her figure.

    • Judy_J

      I’m not a fan of the platform pump, but damn if those shoes aren’t beyond fabulous!  I’m not a fan of the exposed zipper, but it works on this dress, probably because Ms Williams has such a, shall we say, righteous booty.  Good job all around.

      • Sara LaBatt

        I feel the same about the zipper.  I generally don’t like it, but I think it actually works to break up Serena’s righteous booty, as you say.  She looks amazing.  

    • Judy_S

      Wonderful. I would say werq. The shoes (and I hate ALL platform pumps) are perfect with the dress.

    • alyce1213

      She’s a force of nature – never looked better.  The shoes are perfect in this context.

      I love to see that Victoria Beckham dresses suit different body types. I’ve been far more impressed with her designs than I ever thought I’d be. I want one.

      • formerlyAnon

         Not to diss VB (much) she began by borrowing from some of the masters, so if she came to understand what was right about their work, I am not surprised her clothing is surpassing my (rock bottom) expectations. I am coming to be most impressed by her smarts.

    • sweetlilvoice

      Damn. She looks great. Her body is amazing and her hair is wonderful. BAM! Drag Queen Style.

    • BazoDee

      Perfection!! I was a bit nervous when I saw the headline -Serena -Victoria -but YES!!! This works fabulously!! And those shoes fall in the category of “only Serena” could pull them off!! 

    • afabulous50

      Where’s the WERQ?!

    • VioletFem

      She looks AMAZING! Love the hair, especially. Why isn’t this a WERQ post?

    • Tamara Hogan


    • petalfrog

      So why isn’t this a WERQ? Because… damn she looks DIVINE

    • Scarlet39

      She really looks pretty amazing! 

    • belfebe

      She looks fierce as shit.  The best she’s looked in probably … ever.

    • Austen Jane

      I am wondering if it isn’t just a skosh tight on her? It seems to pull across her hips just a tad. Still agree that this is the best I have seen her look pretty much ever. The hair is FAB.

      • formerlyAnon

         The tightness is a wash for me because I can’t remember seeing Ms. Williams in anything that wasn’t, intentionally or not, pulling across some portion of her extremely un-typical anatomy.  It may have started because women’s clothes usually don’t come in her proportions but I think it’s just part of who she is and how she dresses, now.

    • Susan Crawford

      La Serena looking totally fierce – from head to toe.

      Yes, she could kick some ass in those shoes, but let’s face it, she could kick some ass in her bare feet. With both hands tied behind her back. In her sleep. Because THIS is a strong woman – and I mean that in every sense of the word. What an icon. And here’s to a long and fashionable association with Posh Becks.

    • Jennifer Ford

      Jaw officially dropped. She looks SO AMAZING.

      But maybe it could use a showy necklace? Something with a gold medallion? Too much?

      • Snailstsichr

        Didn’t she do some “shopping” for two big showy gold pieces recently??

        I join my BKs in bowing down. Snaps for Serena and Victoria.

      • jennifromcali

        That ring on her left hand is pretty showy..anything more would have been too much bling. I actually watched the show and I can’t remember what Letterman said about the ring, but she responded, “A girl needs her diamonds.” There was a some banter from Letterman about what was raised as she came out in that smoking hot dress. :) Looking good, Girl, and definitely should receive the prestgious and highly coveted Tlo WERQ award.

        • Jennifer Ford

          Indeed it is showy and awesome, but, er… I was talking about her Olympic Gold Medal.

    • marlie

      This totally should have been a “WERQ”!! She looks fabulous, head to toe!

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      WERQ!!!  Wow, I hope she enjoys that body while she’s young.  Because as my mother says, “Once you’re old, you’re old.”

    •!/rmccarthyjames RMJ12345

      It’s funny that folks used to say that Vicky B made dresses only for toothpicks like herself. This is a WERQ.

    • Rand Ortega

      You could bounce a quarter off that booty. She looks smashing!

    • Danielle

      Bam!  I can’t remember her ever looking this good.

    • frannyprof

      Victoria knows what she’s doing. Her clothes look amazing on everyone. Love this look.

    • l_c_ann

      I think she would have looked just as good, if the dress were a size larger. 

      • formerlyAnon

         Yes, but not at all like Serena.

    • Bert Keeter

      NICE! VB is a killer designer. Modern, sexy and classy!

    • DesertRodent

      When I look at her, the first thing I see is her wonderful, carefully honed athlete’s body. It is a thing of beauty to behold, and she’s embellished it with the perfect clothing and accessories that say to all the skinny, underfed, underactive female runway models, “Ladies, THIS is what you can do with a human body!”

    • Nancer

      She looks amazing, beautiful, and powerful. Love this! Also, I love the shoes.

    • TomBord

      She’s very pretty but I’ve grown just so weary of the ‘Beckman Sausage Casing’ as fashion.

    • SewingSiren

      PERFECT!  Serena ought to wear Roland Mouret more often.

    • Lisa

      Hot damn, kittens and fawns! There’s nothing to not love here! Flawless!

    • Eva_baby

      Her ass totally makes that zipper!  Now this is a complete and total WERQ.

    • formerlyAnon

      I’d say this is a WERQ. And possibly a WERQ++ because it is HARD to dress an athletic body (given that pretty much nobody designs for one) & the Williams sisters take athletic body to to the nth power.

      Didn’t think I’d see such huge platform stilettos working so well, but they do.

      Seeing her like this makes me a bit less tolerant of the stumbles her stick-like celebrity sisters make.

      • MilaXX

         Yes but not only does Venus have a naturally thinner body type, she also struggles with a serious illness.. In fact with the health issues both of the Williams sister have faced the past few years, I am extremely impressed that they were able to do so well at the Olympics.

    • TheOriginalLulu

      Wow, she looks amazing. I adore the Chaka Khan hair and those shoes are KILLER. Love the dress on her. The only nit-pick I have is that I’m not crazy about the humungous exposed zipper on the back, but other than that I think Miss Serena is shutting it the hell down.

    • MilaXX

      When she walked out last night Dave was practically drooling. She really looked great, even the makeup was on point.

      • formerlyAnon

         I think it’s hilarious when guys who are not built like, say, pro basketball or football players drool over her, because I think that if things got, um, physical, most of ‘em would register somewhere between disconcerted and terrified when they realized she could bench press ‘em. Probably one-armed.

    • mcarlson

      Now THAT is how you do it. 

    • SummerSquash

      Should totally be a WERQ! Best I’ve seen her look.

    • UglyCasanova

      She looks amazing, love her hair — will this be her tennis outfit for the US Open?

      And TLo, ‘who knew’.

    • Ruth Preston

      I always love it when fierce fashion is set against the backdrop of the Iconic Letterman Dumpsters. That said, yeah, this is all dead perfect on her. Go buy some more Vicki, girl.

    • ccm800

      Ace. Loves it. 

    • dschubba

      To quote the Continental, “Wow! Wowee-wow-wow!”

    • sockandaphone

      amazing. serious body envy vibes right now and i love the color!

    • marilyn

      She is gorgeous.  The zipper on the back wrecks the look.  That takes the dress from couture to amateur night.  However, ignore that and it is an over the top win for Serena.

    • Scott Isaacs

      T.P., baby. The total package. This is flawless.

      Why didn’t this merit a WERQ?

    • CassandraMortmain

      I literally did not recognize her.  Best she’s ever looked.  The dress, the hair, the makeup – beyond fabulous.  Even the platform stilettos, which I always hate, at least look like a piece of art here and complement the dress.    

      I know that VB rips off other designers, notably Roland Mouret, but damned if her stuff isn’t pretty fab.

    • Tafadhali

      That is the best I have ever seen her look. Damn, girl.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Ms. Williams is in the house, and she’s WERQ’ing this look!

    • kschwarting

      I think she looks amazing and love that she’s celebrating her curves.  However, it looks just a wee bit tight across the midsection.  There, I’ve said it, and will now go hide under my desk because I’m clearly in the minority for nitpicking.

    • julnyes

      She looks fantastic (as I always knew she could but despaired of ever seeing). I hate exposed zippers as much as the next Bitter Kitten, but she looks so good I am giving it a pass this time. The shoes are killa!

    • tallgirl1204

      She is so amazingly FIT and STRONG.  What an inspiration to this desk-bound weakling.  And, kschwarting, I agree that the dress is a teensy bit tight, but I’ve been wearing my clothes a size too large ever since “body-conscious” became a style direction, so maybe I’m just out of touch. 

    • Gus Casals

      I’m beyond words, she looks AMAZING. I don’t recall seeing her this put together EVER. Consider yourself copiously finger snapped.

    • kimmeister

      Looks like somebody has been getting diva tips from Kelly Rowland!

    • Glam Dixie

      Looks like she needs to go up one size to me, but she looks great if you ignore the pulling around the hips/butt area.

    • Dixie Murphy Ross

      Really don’t like the zipper in the back. At all.

      • PinkLemon

         agreed. hate hate hate hate.

    • Heather Couch

      HOT DAMN. Snaps up!

    • Aniela Marie Perry

      That’s what I’m talkin’ about.

    • Michael Rios


    • SpcilK

      Brava Ms. Williams!

    • another_laura

      This woman is just stupendous and this look, from incredible hair to kick-ass shoes, is amazing for her.

    • Linda Merrill

      Totally agree on the shoes. I usually hate them all, but she’s has such a powerful presence that they are balanced out. 

    • Imasewsure

      First time I have ever seen her looking good (actually great!) in anything outside of tennis wear… love the dress, love the shoes and at least on her slamming body, I like the zipper… maybe wouldn’t look so good on a scrawny type but I like it hear (and I hate exposed zippers)

    • Larkin21

      WOW! Love everything going on here with the possible exception of the zipper in the back. Still, though, she looks great! Couldn’t agree more on the shoes.

    • Rebecca

      Serving it UP. She looks SO GOOD.

    • kikisayshi

      I know it’s so hard for her to find things that flatter her athletic body. She sure hit the nail on the head here. This should have been a WERQ, no?

    • Anna


    • IrmaLaDuce

      also, since you guys are toO polite to say it — THAT ASS GODDAMN!!

    • kikisayshi

      And seriously, even if I went to the gym every day for the rest of my life, I would never have an ass and legs like that. 

    • JulieJ

      That is the best I have ever seen her look!  She definately needs to stock up on Designs by Vicki.

    • juanitadeloach

      this should be a WERQ! She looks amazing.  Very reminiscent of Kelly Rowland with the hair.

    • Ashleigh Boutelle

      3 SNAPS UP

    • Karen

      she looks great here, i’ve often thought she looked a bit masculine in a dress but she is working the hell out of this. 

    • Kathy Marlow

      Those shoes are amazing.  I might sell an organ for those. 

    • GTrain

      She looks great, possibly WERQ-worthy!

    • Phyllis Craine

      I’d love to know how her hair is done like that it’s awesome. 

    • Jessica Goldstein

      I’m more afraid of her getting a stress fracture in her foot from those shoes than kicking my ass in them. Those are some crazy, foot-destroying pumps that I cannot sign off on. Her hair and body in that dress? I envy both of those. Fabulous!

    • LauraWL

      She is SHUTTING IT DOWN. Best I’ve ever seen her look. The clean lines and sporty look very much suit her athletic body. 

    • e jerry powell

      I’d love to see Serena’s hair closet, though.  That room is probably massive by now.

    • skadi1

      I need to know. Was this dress modified to fit her booty or is it stretchy? Or does Victoria Beckham design clothes that fit curvy women? Because I would be willing to invest if that was the case.

      KILLING. IT.

    • Kyle Henry

      I’ve been eating up that hair all summer.  

    • patticake1601

       She looks amazing!  I like the shoes…What they cost would pay my rent for 3 months!  damn!

    • formerlyAnon

       I’ll have to edit for clarity – I wasn’t dissing her actual sister, but her sister celebrities who are more in the actress/singer/model mode. 

      And I also am impressed with what both sisters have done in the last few years (like I wasn’t before that?) because while they both have talent and a huge capacity for work, sometimes sheer determination doesn’t convince the recalcitrant human body.

    • Amy Ellinger

      May be the best she’s ever looked. This is almost Pam Grier level of badassery.

    • Rage on the Page

      I think this deserved a WERQ for sure! 

    • Kate4queen

      I do like the fact that VB’s clothes can actually be worn by someone who isn’t a size 2 and this color is beautiful on Ms. Serena.

    • Melissa Brogan

      I hate exposed zippers, but damned if Serena doesn’t look amazing in that.

    • TheDivineMissAnn

      Adored that dress until I saw that damn ass huge zipper in the back.  Why, oh, why???

      The shoes?  To. Die.

    • granddelusion

      The only thing wrong with this is that it’s so tight it puckers. Also, the platforms (okay, two things) are stupid, but otherwise the shoes are fabulous.

    • Captain Vargr

      Good Lord!

      She looks like a transsexual! Look at the size of her arms, hands and feet. Her hair has been so artificially treated it resembles spring coils. And her face…her flat, wide-nostril nose is like something out of a gorilla or chimpanzee.

      Is *this* your idea of an attractive female? Honestly?!

      Some men are either really sick in the head, or really, really desperate.

        You and your type of commentary are not welcome here.  GTFO.
        T-Lo: Can you block this bigot?

    • Shannon Stewart

      You know, you guys are right.  I hate platform pumps, but they look great on her — it’s totally the difference in body type.  They don’t look clunky on Serena, the way they always do on starlets.

    • shag11

      Yes, yes, YES, lawd. Looking good, girl. Get it, get it.

    • larry

      Yes Lawd! 

    • larry

      Anybody notice all these women on here finding little faults…take it from this man….YES LAWD…I like it ALL. BOOM! Those legs and buns from the back photo shot…DAM!

    • guest2visits

      It all looks great on her.

    • Le_Sigh

      Daaaaaaamn – she looks gooood!

    • Nonnah

      She looks lovely, however I’m not a fan of the exposed zipper.  I always feel it cheapens the look.

    • Contralto

      She is really rockin that twistout and the bod is to diiiiiie.

    • Joalissa Jean

      Dayum! Get that USO trophy girl! Your Chaka Khan hair deserves only the best! 

    • Teresa O’Keefe

      $3895.00 for some shoes…. really?
      well i love victoria beckham dresses and she looks fabulous in this one and yes love this hair – i don’t know if it’s a weave, your hair or what but i love it.  i’d be just a happy with those shoes kim kardashian pimps – shoe dazzle – and stick the other 3845… in an IRA. hope she’s paying her taxes….. just saying….

      • Charlotte Sanders

         This whole comment is ignorant

        • Teresa O’Keefe

          how do you figure? (just seeing this) Maybe you don’t even know what an IRA is, and that would make you IGNORANT, not me. The comment is ALL about paying almost 4 thousand dollars for shoes. how is that ignorant, please enlighten me.

    • CarolinLA

      No wonder Yahoo sport linked to this.  That is one beautiful derriere.  

    • AnneElliot

      Total agreement with you, TLo. I loathe platform shoes but I think this is the first pair I’ve ever liked!  Serena looks FIERCE.  I don’t even mind the back zipper.  And her hair is amazing.  

    • TieDye64

      Chaka Khan Chaka Khan…digging the hair so much! That really IS her dress.

    • roats

      You look real good

    • quiltrx

      I LOVE those shoes.  Gorgeous.

    • Trisha26

      Speaking of ASS…I can’t with the back of the dress. Just no. But the rest of this – is this the absolute best Serena has ever looked anywhere? I say yes.

    • Thathoodwink

      She looks gorgeous, slender…I like how the dress fits her in the back. Va va voom! Such a pretty lady.

    • SOLART


    • CQAussie

      Girl could kick my ass with her calves alone!  She looks FAB-U-LOUS.  

    • boweryboy

      She looks fabulous!  This should have been a WERQ.

      It’s the first time I’ve ever seen her not look like a woman with a manly muscular body in an unflattering dress.  This gives her curves.  The hair softens her broad shoulders and the shoes, although hideous in shape, are the perfect eye catching accent.

    • PeaceBang


    • Khetlal

      she is sexy- can be one of the best bed partner.

    • kingderella

      OMG WOAH

    • Ronald A. jr.

      She is so  HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Ravage Nukem

      Good looking man

    • Ros Clarke

      WOW. I would never, ever have guessed that Posh’s clothes would work so much better on a woman with that shape. Props to Serena for  looking AWESOME.

    • Calusa

      just god awful shoes….dress is so so

    • Sarah Michele Ford

      Hot, hot, hot. If there is one celebrity body I would like to emulate it’s Serena’s. Not that I have the time to put in at the gym to get it…

      I, too, am DONE with the exposed zippers. Yuck.

    • MovieLoverDeluxe


    • Jared

       Is anyone else tired of seeing exposed zippers? Why was that ever a trend? They feel vulgar without being sexy, almost like showing a lace slip under a nice dress – you CAN cover it up, so why don’t you? It just bends and puckers down the back without doing a thing to enhance the curves or the look.  From the front, though, I give it a thumbs up.

    • Monabel

      Dress TOO TIGHT.

    • xmixiex


    • poggi

      I love this on her.  She looks amazing.  I think you guys are dead on about the hoof/platform thing and how it might work on someone with beautiful, powerful, athletic legs like Serena’s.  I also have more respect now for Victoria Beckham. 

    • LambeeBaby

      She’s mighty-mighty just lettin’ it all hang out! Sorry, I immediately thought that she was a Brick House and the rest just followed. Superb!

    • DesertDweller79

      I LOVE it from the front!  Looks fabulous!  I hate the exposed zipper at the back.  This would look incredible without that zipper.

    • DeTrop

      As a long time fan of Serena’s tennis, I must say she looks amazing from head to toe.  Good job.

    • BigOlRedNek

      You might not like the zipper, but for me it just accentuates her ASSets!  Good God!

    • Hildegerd Haugen

      Wow. She kills it. Love her hair too.

    • fursa_saida

      I so agree about the shoes. Plus, at least all that real estate is being used for something visual, as opposed to just sitting there like a concrete block.

    • maretha2

      Good lord, she looks gorgeous. If I start playing tennis, can I get that body?? Love her hair, love her make-up, love the outfit + shoes (don’t mind exposed zippers personally). This might be the best advertising I’ve ever seen for a VB dress, too. Color and fit are amazing. You go, Serena! After a Wimbledon championship and two gold medals, you deserve to look FABULOUS.

    • Neverbuynewclothes

      When are the David Letterman people going to realize that 1) stars are always photographed going into the show  and 2) it would be nice not to have dumpsters in the background?  Surely in a world that can allow us to experience fabulousness through TLo each and every day someone at the Letterman show can FIGURE OUT SOMEWHERE ELSE TO PUT THE GARBAGE CANS!

    • Laura Hartman

      Whoa!  She looks great, maybe the best ever.

    • Pamela

      She certainly made Dave’s eyes pop when she came out on stage!  And he told her so, too.

    • Tatiana Jarquin

      This is the best she’s ever looked!!! And I agree about the platforms T.Lo, I hate how they look on stick thin celebrities; but Miss Serena is WERQing them here.
