When you look like this in a catsuit you are definitely going to turn heads — for better or worse. And unfortunately for Serena Williams, the heads that turned are turning this look into a no-go.
We know you remember Williams walking out at the French Open donning this curve-hugging catsuit. It was her first Grand Slam since giving birth and boy did she make a statement…
Well now the French Tennis Federation has declared that this look, and many others, will not be tolerated next year because of a new dress code implemented after players’ outfits became “too unique for tennis.” “I believe we have sometimes gone too far. Serena’s outfit this year, for example, would no longer be accepted,” French Tennis Federation president Bernard Giudicelli said in an interview with Tennis Magazine. The hate is so real.
Giudicelli is allowing for some freedom of expression though. He claims the French Open guidelines won’t be as strict as the clothing code for Wimbledon, which requires players to wear all white. However, they will be cracking down intensely and are even demanding to see designer sketches ahead of next year’s tournament.
Do you think this policy is racist or rooted in tradition?
