Serena Williams

You know Serena Williams the tennis player—the fist-pumping, catsuit-wearing, candid (and sometimes controversial) woman who has dominated the sport for more than two decades. But the 23-time Grand Slam champion demands attention off the court too, displaying her relatable (usually) but ravishingly chic (always) style and pursuing her longtime passion for design with a self-funded clothing line, all while promoting messages of equality and empowerment. And so, another honor for Serena: She heads SI’s fourth annual Fashionable 50 list, honoring the most stylish athletes in sports.
