Serena Williams Loves When Meghan Markle Wears Her Clothes
Serena Williams has a strong group of supporters in her corner, especially when it comes to her fashion line. One friend, in particular, has shown her support for Williams’ clothing line time and time again: Meghan Markle.
Back in October, on day two of the royal tour, the Duchess of Sussex arrived at the Dubbo airport in Australia with Prince Harry. She was photographed wearing a Maison Kitsuné white collared shirt, Outland jeans, black suede J.Crew boots, and an oversize plaid blazer–That blazer was from the Serena line, which Williams showed immense gratitude for when she posted the pictures of her friend on Instagram.
Marie Claire talked to Serena about her new collection featuring extended sizes, and inquired about the blazer. When talking about how she felt that day seeing Meghan wear her piece, Williams said:
“We were all just coming out of a photo shoot for the brand when we heard that Meghan wore our line. We had sent stuff to her a while ago, so we were excited to see it. I’ve known her for years and it’s cool to see your friend help you out without even trying. She just wanted to look good and wear a blazer. The next thing you know it’sour blazer. I was like ‘Meghan, thanks!’ And she was like ‘why are you thanking me? We’re friends!'”
The duo’s friendship can be traced back to 2010, at the Super Bowl XLIV in Miami, where they reportedly first met and hit it off. Eight years later, Williams was by her friend’s side as she got married.
Even better, Williams isn’t done with having Markle don her clothes. The tennis superstar added, “Since that blazer sold out, now we just have special pieces that are specifically made for Meghan and we send those to her. It’s been fun creating them.”
