Another woman alleges sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh during college years

Serena Williams poses in Palm Beach for InStyle magazine cover


Badass women are confident, nurturing, successful and the focus of InStyle magazine’s August issue. As the magazine reaches doorsteps and grocery checkout lines, you’ll find cover girl Serena Williams posing in Palm Beach. 

However, Williams is currently a bit far from here since she’s in England, a match  away from winning her next tennis tournament.

The tennis star, a Palm Beach Gardens resident, just gave birth in September and, according to The New York Times, is the woman with the tightest grip on the Wimbledon trophy. 

What would I do without all your support? I love you all!!

A post shared by Serena Williams (@serenawilliams) on

It’s no surprise, since Williams wasted no time getting back to training and winning tournaments after giving birth.

She’s won the Wimbledon tournament seven times already and her semi-final match was the 20th consecutive singles-match victory at the All England Club. She lost the final Saturday to Angelique Kerber.

Williams won her 23rd Grand Slam title, the Australian Open, while eight weeks pregnant. 

 

It’s clear why InStyle’s editor-in-chief, Laura Brown, chose her as one of the eight badass women profiled, and additionally for the issue’s cover. 

Williams talks about her role as a mother, tennis champion and how she’s adjusting to her new responsibilities. The interview is accompanied by images of Williams dressed in designer outfits, relaxing by the ocean. The magazine says she was in Palm Beach, but didn’t say where.

Williams had just finished a four-hour tennis practice when she arrived on location enthusiastic about the photoshoot. On the cover, she wears a $450 giant floppy Eric Javits hat with a dress from The Row.

She even ordered some pieces she modeled for the shoot including the Dolce & Gabbana leopard print shawl and $545 swimsuit.  Williams paired the look with $115 Janis Savitt earrings, aptly named the Serena earrings, and a $53,000 Audemars Piguet watch from the Millenary Collection.
