Playing dress-up in your mom’s closet is a time-honored tradition. But while most of us enjoyed the occasional ‘80s prom dresses and old concert t-shirts, Serena Williams’ daughter Olympia got to try on something a little more couture: her mom’s old Met Gala look!
In stunning new photos, the 5-year-old puts on her mom’s pink-feathered cape that she wore to the 2021 Met Gala. The super-long cape starts with white flowers near the shoulders, then transforms into different shades of pink down the back in a cool ombre effect, ending in a black row of feathers. Williams completed the stunning look with a Gucci silver bodysuit, which she called “superhero-inspired,” per Marie Claire.
See Williams in the outfit in Sept. 2021 below:
When Olympia donned the luxe cape, the train went past floor-length and trailed several feet behind her. The 5-year-old posed in the exact same way her mom did, with her head turned back over her shoulder. She is glamorous and totally adorable.
“Like mama like daughter. @olympiaohanian Met Gala next?” Williams captioned the adorable post, which was set to Meghan Trainor’s “Made You Look.” Her husband, Alexis Ohanian, commented, “This kid!!!”
“This is the cutest ever,” someone else wrote. Another commented, “Oh hey future MISS USA!!! ❤️”
Williams appeared on CBS Mornings with Gayle King today, where she opened up about life after tennis. “For me, retirement is such a big word for someone at my age, and I was just like — I don’t think that’s…that really fits me. I never really fit in a box anyway.”
Olympia has some ideas on what she could do, though. “Now she prays for a sibling,” Williams laughed. “And the other day, she was like, ‘Everyone has a brother or a sister but me.’ And I’m like, ‘Olympia. I’m working on it. Mommy worked a little too long in tennis, so it’s taking a little longer than expected.’” Aww! That is so sweet, and we wish Williams and Ohanian the best of luck as they try for baby #2!
In the meantime, we hope Williams dresses Olympia in more high fashion ‘fits, because she is a natural! The little girl definitely takes after her mama.
