Game On: Serena Williams Shows Off Her Hot Body For Essence

Published

Serena Williams is showing off her hot body for Essence magazine. The tennis champ is the cover girl for the mag’s annual body issue … and there’s no wondering why.

Serena showed off her gorgeous gams and arms in curve hugging Herve Leger gowns and cute one-piece swimsuits.

Now 31, Williams is still a force to be reckoned with on the tennis court, but two years ago she was fighting for her life after suffering from a pulmonary embolism. Now, she tells Essence that she’s healthier than ever. “I feel lighter, I feel healthier, and even though I’m 31 — which really isn’t old, but for an athlete, particularly a tennis player, it’s old — I promise you, my body has never felt better. Considering how much I’ve played and how much I’ve done, I feel fine. I’m strong.”

Life is still peachy for Phaedra Parks!

The former The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star has just signed a contract with Wilhelmenia Modeling Agency.

That’s right the 5’1 attorney turned reality star, entrepreneur and mortician has now added model to her long list of job titles.

Stylish caught up with Parks about the new venture and her new revenge body.

“I think I’m the face of “yes you can,” she said when asked why modeling. “I’m a small town girl who has followed her dreams. Yes you can be a mom, yes you can be a lawyer and yes you can be a model. When the opportunity presented itself some people asked me “Why?’ and I said “Why not?”

She added, “I have the opportunity to show people that beauty can come in every size, shade, color and age. It’s exciting and an adventure!”

When asked what her dream campaign would be Parks said something in the beauty space.

“Well I would love be the face of skin care brand. I have great skin, I love makeup, but I love to be able to take off the makeup and have beautiful skin. I also think a lot of girls are looking on Instagram for an idealized standard of beauty that requires a lot of makeup. Those are not the faces of what real women look like.”

Not surprisingly Parks also admitted that she would be ok with going nude for the cameras.

“I don’t mind baring it all, I have been wearing g-strings and baring it all really every season for seven years. I had two children on national T.V.  I love nudity! I’ve brought a lot of exotic entertainers on the show, so I love my body and I’ve got curves. I’m a mother of two children, so I’m not perfect, but I have no problem getting naked.”

And we can see why. The mother of two is looking better than ever these days. So was it the divorce from husband Apollo Nida that led to her new body?

“Well, a lot of things happened in my personal life,” she explained. “Going through everything was so much stress, but then when it finished it was just effortless. I feel like I turned into Benjamin Button and started aging backwards, I started being happy.”
