Serena Williams is looking stronger than ever at Paris Fashion Week. The tennis GOAT looked like a total boss as she arrived at the Balmain fashion show repping the French brand in a black top under a green velvet blazer and skirt. She also debuted a blonde bob, and TBH, it looks incredible on her.
As it turns out, Serena’s been waiting for her chance to attend a Balmain show for a while. “We’ve been missing each other because every time I wanted to come to a show I was working so it’s always so hard, so for years I’ve been like, ‘Oh it’s right during the season,’ so finally I’m on injury, so I had time,” she said, per WWD.
While Serena has fully convinced me that green is her color, I can’t get over how toned her legs look.
In 2021, Serena told Women’s Health that she doesn’t like to overthink what she eats. But she prefers foods high in nutrients.
“My philosophy is eat to live. Don’t live to eat,” she said. “I want to have a healthy lifestyle and, so you know, [I’m eating] a lot of greens and mostly plant-based lately, just super healthy stuff.”
Serena also added that while she gets cravings, she’s more focused on how food can help her reach her fitness goals.“You need [food] to survive. And [that’s] very hard to live by, cause I definitely love to snack, but this is what I want. These are my goals,” she said.
Still, even a 23-time Grand Slam champion sometimes skips meals when she’s busy. Serena told WH that sometimes she’ll miss breakfast if she’s running around with her daughter, Olympia. Other times, she’s simply not hungry.
For lunch and dinner, Serena loads up on fiber and protein with a bean burger or gluten-free bean burrito. When she’s in training mode, she’ll make pasta or have some fruit. But when it’s time for competition, she sticks to greens.
“I usually like to have lots of greens before my match and then fruit actually, and a little carbs and some sort of a protein. So I try to knock them [her food groups] all out in one,” Serena said. And when she’s low on ideas, she checks out social media just like the rest of us to get some extra inspiration.
Keep it up, Serena!
