Fresh off her sixth win at Wimbledon, Serena Williams stepped into the tournament’s Champion’s Dinner looking like royalty.
Dressed in a floor-length, peach-colored gown with a bejeweled bodice, Williams once again silenced her critics who’ve questioned the tennis star’s femininity because of her toned physique.

Recently, the New York Times ran a controversial article arguing Williams continues to dominate her sport not because she’s the hardest working athlete in the game, but because other female tennis players “avoid bulking up” because they don’t want to feel “unfeminine.” The takeaway? Williams’ badass bod is manly.
Apparently,Wimbledon’s men’s champ Novak Djokovic, didn’t get the “manly” memo. After his win, he made it a point to dance with Williams at the banquet.
This year’s Wimbledon win garnered Queen Serena (as she should be called henceforth) her 21st grand slam title, and she arrived to London’s Guildhall looking like an absolute boss.
