Tennis legend Serena Williams has many firsts associated with her accomplishments throughout her career.
On Monday night, she added another one.
She is the first athlete to be honored with the Fashion Icon Award by the Council of Fashion Designers Of America.
It is a fitting award for Williams who throughout her long and storied tennis career, used her sports platform to showcase her fashion sense.
From the black bodysuit to the tutu and everything in between, Williams embraced and expressed her style on the court.
