Well, d@mnnnnn! Serena Williams is everything and this picture proves it.
The tennis champ is featured in New York magazine, showing off her flawless physique and talking about what her life may be like after she retires … whenever that’ll be. In the mag, when asked what she’ll do after her “eventual retirement”, Williams responded, “I will finally be able to make some Miami Dolphin games,” she says, laughing, “and make some, uh, better decisions down there with the players.”

Serena also opens up about her second love, fashion.
Serena wanted not just to design clothes but to design wedding dresses. “That was my first real love,” she says, “but then I was like, Listen. I’m playing professional tennis. I’ll just do athleticwear.” In her sartorial interests, as in all things, she followed Venus, who encouraged her to take some college design classes. Together, they brought to the game black lace, flesh-colored underwear, and knee-high sneaker boots. Today, Venus has her own line, EleVen — “Ten is just another number, but EleVen is a lifestyle” — an affordable athleticwear line far tamer than much of what Serena and Venus wear on the court. “We brought fashion back to tennis,” Serena says. “It was great when Chris Evert was around. Tracy Austin had some great designs. But the ’90s was not a good time.”

Phaedra Parks And Her Revenge Body Nab Modeling Contract
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.”
