Serena Williams shines in Louboutins & Diamonds for ‘Drew Barrymore’ – Footwear News

Serena Williams had a Louboutin moment on “The Drew Barrymore Show” today. The newly retired tennis player arrived on the daytime talk show looking luxurious as host Drew Barrymore kicked off her shoes and went barefoot for the interview.

Williams wore a blue velvet turtleneck ruched midi dress. This ruched dress is part of the tennis player’s new collection from her clothing brand, S By Serena. She donned a pair of metallic silver Christian Louboutin pumps, adding an extra touch of glamor to her outfit.

The tennis player accessorized a gold watch and other pieces from her jewelry line, Serena Williams Jewelry. She wore 10k gold and diamond earrings, a diamond necklace and a matching bracelet.

Barrymore threw on her textured black pumps for the interview to talk about Serena’s recent professional accomplishments. The two discussed why Williams didn’t want her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian, to attend her tennis matches. The Olympian also revealed that she was inspired by her daughter’s doll to write her very first children’s book. “The Adventures of Qai Qai” is about her daughter’s doll, Qai Qai, who helps a little girl learn to believe in herself. The picture book was released on September 27 and is available now on Amazon.

The retired tennis player found time earlier this year to take on a new title as a fashion designer with her modern fashion label, S By Serena. The “S” in the title represents the smart, sexy, sophisticated, strong and elegant qualities of each person. Her brand focuses on trend and inclusion so everyone can look and feel their best.
