Serena Williams just won her fourth trophy on Centre Court of Wimbledon, beating Russia’s Vera Zvonareva 6-3, 6-2. It’s Serena’s 13th Grand Slam singles title, which moves her one ahead of mentor Billie Jean King. But before Wimbledon, Serena showed off her stylish side in a stunning spread for the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar, on newsstands July 20th.
In the spread Serena sports a Fendi dress and a swimsuit by Eres opens up about dating–revealing the reasons behind her break up with rapper/actor Common. Plus, she discusses coming to peace with her naturally curvy, gorgeous body: “I was 23 when I realized that I wasn’t Venus,” Serena says. “She’s totally different. I’m super curvy. I have big boobs and this massive butt. She’s tall and she’s like a model and she fits everything. I was growing up, wanting to be her, wanting to look like her, and I was always fitting in her clothes, but then one day I couldn’t. But it’s fine. Now I’m obviously good, but it’s a weird thing. … To this day, I don’t love my arms. People want more fit arms, but my arms are too fit. But I’m not complaining. They pay my bills.”
And on her new short hair, Serena says, “Since I don’t look like every other girl, it takes a while to be okay with that. To be different. But different is good. I feel so much sexier with short hair. I wanted to reach inside me and feel better. I don’t want to hide behind a facade of hair.”
Aw, I love Serena’s new short hair and love Serena!!
