Celebrating Women & Girls In Sports

The Most Fashionable Women In Sports – Part 1

Athletes are driven and competitive by nature. They carry a certain swag and finesse in everything they do. They take pride in the way they walk, the way they talk and in the way they dress. These women know that what they do and what they wear sends a message to the world. These strong and powerful women shine inside and out, showing their confidence in style.

Serena Williams

Widely known as one of the greatest athletes of all time, Serena has won 23 Grand Slam Titles and four Olympic Gold Medals. She has been ranked No.1 by the WTA in singles on eight separate occasions between 2002 and 2017. Off the court, she’s a fashion icon. She caused a sensation when in white lace at the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. Her fashion is both bold and sophisticated.

Maya Gabeira

A Brazilian, big wave surfer who made the Guinness World Records Book by surfing a 68-foot wave, the largest by a female surfer. This five-time XXL Big Wave award-winner has style on and off her board. She was fabulous in all Gucci at the WSL awards and looking confident and sexy in black leather at the Cartoon Network Hall of Game Awards. Her style is effortless, laid back, and cool, just as you would expect from a surfer girl.

Gabbie Douglas

Gabby made history as the first black woman to become the individual all-around champion. She’s also the first U.S. gymnast to win gold in the all-around individual and team competitions at the same Olympics. Her style is strong and fierce on and off, rocking a tube and sequins at the 2017 Nickelodeon Kids Choice Sports Awards. Gabby is a fan of prints and patterns, girly dresses, and high heels. 

Danica Patrick

The most successful woman in the history of American open-wheel racing. Danica is fierce, not afraid to compete against men and is the only woman to ever win an Indy race. She can rock a GoDaddy jumpsuit on the track and a fur coat, black leggings and ankle boots walking the streets of New York City, or a dainty tulle trimmed white dress at the 2017 ESPY Awards. Patrick is a role model for women and fashionistas.

Lindsey Vonn

Renowned as the best alpine skier in history, Vonn is a four-time World Cup champion and the first American woman to win the gold medal in downhill at the 2010 Winter Olympics. Vonn also happens to be a fashionista when it comes to style. She dresses to impress for red carpet events in high-end designer dresses, girly earrings, and tall stiletto heels. She stunned in red at an HBO after party and showed off her amazing figure.

Michelle Wie

At 10, Wie became the youngest player to qualify for a USGA amateur championship, turned pro before her 16th birthday, and won her first major at 24. She was voted the most stylish woman in Golf Magazine’s inaugural style issue. Standing at 6’1″, Michelle is never scared to turn heads. She’s worn  custom Swarovski crystal-encrusted, Nike high-tops on the course, but also stuns in a fabulous, slinky wrap dress on Instagram.

Ibtihaj Muhammad

A trailblazer in the sport of fencing and in the fashion world. She’s the first Muslim-American woman to win an Olympic bronze medal and to wear a hijab while competing for Team USA (which inspired Barbie’s hijab-wearing doll). Muhammad has redefined style for years now and has made history by launching her own clothing line, Louella, focused on the modest, style-conscious shopper.

Skyler Diggans-Smith

Skyler has always been exceptional on the basketball court. The third pick in the 2013 is a 4x All-Star and an Olympic Gold Medalist. She made national headlines when she secretly played an entire season without telling anyone she was pregnant. Off the court, she has worked for Nike as a model and ESPN as a guest interviewer. She can rock a slinky dress and heels or PUMA athleisure and kicks on a red carpet.
