“I don’t want to get to the line thinking about my outfit if it doesn’t fit good, if it doesn’t feel good - you have to feel good about yourself before you can perform good.” - Florence Griffith Joyner (Flo-Jo).
On Super Bowl Sunday, Serena Williams stepped up to the line in a one-legged pink, red, and black catsuit and proceeded to roll in her first-round match victory (6-1, 6-1) at the 2021 Australian Open. Although she holds the record for most Grand Slam singles titles in the open era, Williams is in pursuit of her 24th which would tie Margaret Court.
The Nike look is inspired by “Flo-Jo,” the American track star who set the world record in 1988 for both the 100- and 200-meter dashes, and still remains the fastest woman of all time. She was a style icon dawning multiple one-legged looks. We opened the vault to check them out, tune in for yourself.
“You have to feel good in order to perform good,” says Flo-Jo, “and that’s why I design why clothes the way I do.”
