Serena and Venus Williams looked incredible as they modelled sport-inspired gowns as they hit the star-studded Vogue World Paris fashion show on Sunday. 

Venus commanded attention in a custom Marine Serre look crafted from repurposed tennis bag which featured a high leg slit.

Leaving her long dark tresses loose, the tennis star wore a pair of black kitten heels with the ensemble. 

Meanwhile Serena showed off her amazing figure in a blue, black and white Off White dress. 

The top half of the outfit resembled a long-sleeved sports top with a quarter zip before it flowed into a floaty fishtail skirt.

This year’s Vogue World collaborated with youth athletic academies across France, pairing different sports with a history of 100 years of French fashion.

Speaking about her look Venus told Vogue: ‘Marine absolutely killed the look.

‘She really embodied femininity, athleticism, and chicness all in one. And most importantly, it makes me feel empowered and confident.’ 

The tennis stars looked in good spirits as they walked the show at Place Vendôme while Bad Bunning performed four of his hits. 

The singer took over the venue by performing hit track Vou 787 as Venus and Serena helped celebrate tennis and 2000s fashion.

Bad Bunny wore a smart gray pinstriped, double-breasted suit from Pressiat, with statement padded shoulders. 

He accessorised with red cowboy boots, yellow tinted sunglasses and layered three diamond-encrusted chains from Tiffany & Co.

A cohort of famous faces took part in the sold-out Vogue World event, celebrating 100 years of fashion and sport in the iconic city.

The venue for the show is the famed Place Vendôme – a square which is a renowned location for fine jewellery and the inspiration for a Catherine Deneuve film.

Last year the event was hosted in London, while the year before the Big Apple was the backdrop for the high fashion extravaganza. 

Those who were unable to get a ticket for the event were able to watch the action unfold on a live stream, which was hosted by Cara Delevingne.

This year’s Vogue World collaborated with youth athletic academies across France, pairing different sports with a history of 100 years of French fashion.

The sports include cycling, gymnastics, tennis, fencing, and break dancing, among others and the fashion will shine a spotlight on both modern and historic designers.

Artists who performed during the show included Bad Bunny and Aya Nakamura.

Speaking on the event, Vogue’s global editorial director and Condé Nast chief content officer Anna Wintour, said: ‘If Vogue World: New York was a street fair, and Vogue World: London was a glamorous night at the theatre…

‘Supporting arts and cultural organisations in London – Paris will be a kind of opening ceremony; one that celebrates 100 years of fashion and sport, as well as this extraordinary city.’

A percentage of the net proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the humanitarian organisation Secours Populaire. 

The organisation facilitates access to essential equipment for young, aspiring athletes across France.
