Serena Williams Dazzles on the Red Carpet

By Allie Waxman


There was an outpouring of love for the tennis great at the New York premiere of Being Serena, the five-part documentary series that chronicles Williams' pregnancy, marriage and return to her sport. When asked what she's excited for viewers to see, Williams mentioned "the vulnerability and the rawness" she displays in the doc that show a new side of her. "It's cameras on and me just 'off.' I'm not holding a trophy, I'm just being Serena."

Serena was joined at the premiere by her family, including husband Alexis Ohanian, sister and fellow tennis star, Venus Williams, and daughter Alexis Olympia. The series also explores Serena's foray into the world of fashion, and she was supported at the premiere by the appearance of models Gigi and Bella Hadid, designer Vera Wang and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
