Serena Williams truly knows how to make an impression with her sensational style choices, and she's certainly left fans stunned over the years with her figure-hugging and eclectic styles, ranging from pearl-studded gowns to her adventurous maternity wear.

For instance, the tennis star, 41, shared a snap of herself on the S by Serena Instagram page back in May 2022 wearing a stunning electric blue mini dress that made her look almost like a royal.

The glamorous outfit, called the Lyric Dress, featured ruching all throughout and also a low backless cut, accentuating her figure.

The sensational piece even featured full-length glove pieces that cut off at the top of the arm, exposing her shoulders for just a hint of skin, which she finished off with a simple gold chain.

Serena even added a huge diamond ring with the outfit, and the caption for the post even included an emoji to match, along with: "We're still not over the back of the Lyric dress."

Fans clearly weren't either, as they instantly took to the comments section to bombard it with heart and flame emojis, raving over Serena's appearance. "Let's talk about that stunning blue too," one wrote, with another saying: "You make that dress look hot, queen," and a third adding: "Wow that's awesome you are so incredibly perfect."
