Growing up, children take many queues from their parents. Small children will attempt to talk, walk and act like their parents. In the Ohanian-Williams household, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. wants to dress like her mother, Serena Williams. In her defense, who wouldn't?
Williams recently made all of her fans smile this week when she commented on a picture of her three-year-old daughter wearing a miniature version of the iconic catsuit she wore at the 2021 Australian Open. Completing the adorable outfit, Ohanian Jr. sported two buns and wore matching black, grey and pink Nike sneakers. To top it all off, she had her own tennis racket and was ready to hit the court. In awe of his daughter's cuteness, Alexis Ohanian Sr. shared a photo of Alexis getting ready for her first set at the Australian Open.
"Aw, man. asked you to save this post until I was next to her, side by side in the same outfit," Williams commented on her husband's Instagram post.
"I guess I'll have to pull the plug from your phone tonight."
Williams first wore her fashionable multi-color catsuit during the first round of the 2021 Australian Open in February. After her first-round victory, she told reporters that her outfit was inspired by the legendary sprinter Florence Griffith-Joyner.
“I was inspired by Flo-Jo, who was a wonderful track athlete, amazing athlete growing up,” she told reporters.
“Her outfits were always amazing. This year we thought, ‘What can we do to keep elevating the Serena Williams on the court?’ The Nike team actually thought of this design of inspiration from Flo-Jo. I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is so brilliant, so brilliant.’”
Well, Williams may have worn it well when she wore it at the Australia Open, but it's pretty clear who the true fashion icon in the family is now. World, meet Alexis Ohanian Jr., the young fashion star set to follow her in her mother's footsteps.
