Serena Williams's daughter Olympia rocks matching Nike tutu as mom reaches U.S. Open final

Yahoo Lifestyle

It remains to be seen if Olympia Ohanian inherited her mother’s tennis skills — the kid just turned 1 this month, after all — but there’s no doubt that she shares Serena Williams‘s bold sense of style.

Fresh off securing a spot in the U.S. Open final — her second appearance in a Grand Slam final since giving birth, and 31st overall — Williams showed off her baby girl in mini-me mode thanks to a black tutu get-up designed by Virgil Abloh for Nike.


The 36-year-old tennis champion has been wearing Abloh’s show-stopping tutu creations — favoring the one-shoulder style and lavender hue — throughout the U.S. Open. Many view the playful look as a response to the French Open organizers’ announcement that they plan to crack down on their dress code after Williams played in a sleek black catsuit designed to help her recover from a difficult childbirth and to prevent blood clots.

It’s clear where Olympia’s loyalties lie. Though she’s not wearing them here, the tot also just scored custom miniature versions of her mom’s Nike sneakers. Apparently, you’re never too young to “just do it.”

Olympia’s twinning moment has predictably melted hearts.

“That is just the cutest thing ever!!” gushed a fan. “Like mother like daughter.”

“The best image I’ve seen all day,” agreed another commenter. 

“Olympia just won New York Fashion Week,” quipped the social media account for Oprah Winfrey’s O Magazine.

And what of Quai-Quai, Olympia’s much beloved, albeit battered, baby doll, who was noticeably missing from the photo? As one fan suggested, she’s no doubt being suited up for her own Nike gear.
