A stronger, wiser, and more controlled Williams is looking to win her 14th Grand Slam title. In the sports world, Williams is one of the most influential style icons on the court.
The 2012 French Open has just begun and before we prepare for the upcoming matches for Williams, let's highlight her top French Open outfits throughout the years.
The 2002 French Open was Serena's first and only year of claiming the title...so far.
Compared to her more recent French Open outfits, this Puma piece is fairly unassuming in a muted, slate gray. The yellow piping was a nice accent color to match Serena's golden locks.
It was an appropriate outfit for her first French Open win because she was literally shimmering. The detail of the outfit includes a sparking gold shimmer all over the one-piece. What a star.
The previous year at the 2001 French Open, Williams was an ultra-feminine sight in a hot pink, Puma outfit with purple piping.
Try saying that five times fast. And of course, being the tennis fashion icon that she is, her outfit was not complete without matching pink shoes and hair scrunchie. Serena topped off this glam outfit with angled hoop earrings, showing fans how to pair style with skill.
Williams continued her pink trend with this sassy number in 2004. The French Open got a whole lot of Serena, but in a lot less clothing.
Her bubblegum pink two-piece by Nike consisted of a skirt and a sleeveless crop-top. And let's not forget her signature shine—Serena sported dangling earrings and a matching bellybutton ring.
This outfit turned the clay court into Serena's personal dance club. She looked fabulous as the outfit boasted her toned abs and arms. Finally, Serena's headband added a bit of flair and personality with a monogrammed "S"...just in case her opponent forgot who she was facing that day.
Serena wore this black-and-white Nike combo at the 2008 French Open. The outfit was classic and timeless with its simple cut and colors.
The belt and racer-back added a nice, feminine finish. She looked professional and clean when she stepped out on the clay in this number.
The 2009 French Open featured Serena all grown up. Her navy blue and orange Nike combo was more classy and less flashy.
She looked sleek in the color block, one-piece with a deep neck line. Her wild hair gave the outfit the bit of spunk it needed. Perhaps the best part of the entire outfit is her shoes. Nike matched the colors perfectly to create shoes that any athlete would be jealous of.
And the winner is...2010!
At the 2010 French Open, Williams proved that you do not necessarily have to wear pink to look feminine.
This was my all-time favorite of Serena's French Open outfits. The bright blue and neon green were incredibly trendy and refreshing.Serena seemed fun and stylish with the small frills at the bottom of the of the skirt. The frills created a look of smooth movements in Serena's play.
This outfit exuded cool from top to bottom frill.
