Welp, Thanksgiving is canceled. We’re already slowly backing away from the turkey legs and mac and cheese and sticking this picture of Serena Williams on the fridge, because body inspiration.
The tennis superstar stepped off of the court and jumped in front of the lens to head the latest campaign for Berlei Australia and make us regret all of that bacon we just ate for breakfast.
“I’ve been a fan of Berlei long before I started working with the brand. My mom discovered the brand in Myer on a trip to Australia 10 years ago and I have been wearing their sports bras ever since,” she told Daily Telegraph.
In one of the shots, she sports a supportive bra and matching boy shorts beneath a black-and-white bomber jacket draped on her shoulders. In another, she rocks pieces from the lingerie label underneath a navy blazer, and she looks bomb.
But even with that banging body, Serena reveals she sometimes feels insecure about the way she looks:
“I’m a normal woman — I can get self-conscious. But I think that is just natural for women to feel that way,” she said. “In our society we’re often led to believe we have to look a certain way but I have learned to be proud of my curves and to embrace them. It’s important to love who you are and realize that you’re beautiful, no matter what society says and the pressure they put on you to look a certain way.”
Well, she’s winning if you ask us.
