Annie Leibovitz shoots Serena Williams for Vanity Fair cover

  • Posted 9 months Ago

Legendary American photographer Annie Leibovitz has photographed a very pregnant and almost naked Serena Williams for the latest cover of Vanity Fair. The shot shows the tennis star (described as "the best tennis player in history") in profile, striking a strong and confident pose in front of a dark grey backdrop.

"I’ve been photographing Serena since she was 16 years old. It was wonderful to do these pictures at this stage of her life," said Leibovitz in an accompanying behind-the-scenes video. "The thing we all agreed on is the fact that power, motherhood, and athleticism are not mutually exclusive," added Jessica Diehl, Vanity Fair's fashion and style director.

You can see the full shoot, which also features her fiancÚ and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, on the Vanity Fair website.
