Serena Williams becomes Vogue US’ cover star for the September 2022 issue. Photographed by Luis Alberto Rodriguez, on the cover, the tennis superstar appears in a striking blue Balenciaga gown, with a fold-out of the horizontal shot revealing her daughter, Olympia, posing along with her, clinging to the train, on the beach. Against a picturesque beach backdrop, the tennis pro’s royal-blue Bvlgari earrings completed the beautiful look.
The cover story showcases Williams in a variety of sleek, simple gowns paired with a pop of statement jewelry. Stylist Gabriella Karefa-Johnson dresses Williams in designs from labels such as Sergio Hudson, Ralph Lauren Collection, Wales Bonner and Gucci.
