After stunning with her looks at Balmain and Off-White fashion houses Serena Williams yet again stole the show. Making another appearance at the Paris Fashion Week she showed up with long-time friend Kim Kardashian at the Balenciaga Womenswear Fall/Winter 2024-2025 show.

Serena Williams took to Instagram to post a few pictures of her outfit alongside Kim Kardashian. Both of them were dressed stunningly in black. The tennis world legend beautifully donned a tube black dress with an extravagant diamond necklace and completed her look with black shades. She was also wearing a bright blue overcoat on top of the dress to make it look even more outstanding.

On the other hand, Kim Kardashian was wearing a net dress in black. A striking detail of Kardashian’s attire was the presence of a dangling tag from her black sheer dress, initially perplexing observers before unveiling itself as a deliberate element orchestrated by Balenciaga’s creative director, Demna Gvasalia.

Williams also posted a photo with Vogue magazine’s Editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

Kardashian and Serena Williams have been friends for almost two decades. They first met when Kim Kardashian was running her closet organizing and eBay resale business 20 years ago and the tennis icon was one of her clients. The two have developed a personal connection since then. In fact, last year after a picture from Kim Kardashian’s photoshoot holding a tennis racquet was posted by the model on Instagram, Williams hit her with a quirky comment. She wrote, “Literally not how you hold a racquet. Clearly I have to give you lessons lol,”

Serena Williams also attended the Valentino show at Paris Fashion Week where she donned a maroon dress with a white design. She also made her way to the Balmain and Off-White fashion houses and again she stunned with her outfits.

Serena Williams turned heads with her outfits at Balmain and Off-White fashion houses

Serena Williams turned heads during the Paris Fashion Week and wore striking black outfits for both Balmain and Off-White fashion houses’ events.

For the Balmain show, Williams wore a mid-length black dress stamped with a white rose and accessorized with an Audemars Piguet watch, a long black trench coat, and black sandals. For the Off-White show, she went with a shorter black dress, with cutouts on its long sleeves, and accessorized with a black-and-white varsity letterman’s jacket, and strappy black pumps.

She posted photos from the Off-White show on Instagram with the hashtag #VirgilForever in a tribute to Off-White’s late founder, Virgil Abloh. Abloh passed away in 2021 after a battle with cancer and was a close friend of Williams.

In addition to her appearances during the Paris Fashion Week, Williams was featured in a “get ready with me” video for Vogue France a couple of days ago.
