Serena Williams Covers The September 2016 Issue Of Self Magazine 4

Serena Williams is slaying summer 2016! Last month, the 34-year-old California-native won her 7th Wimbledon championship. The Wimbledon finals match ended with Williams earning every point of her 7-5, 6-3 win on center court at London‘s All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. She defeated Angelique Kerber of Germany, the woman who beat her out for the 2016 Australian Open championship this past January (see it here).

A few weeks later, it was announced that Williams is covering the September 2016 issue of Self magazine.

Mark Seliger lensed the shoot. Kate Sebbah handled styling duties. For this issue, Williams was interviewed by Howie Kahn.

Inside, she opens up about the challenges she’s overcome to become a tennis superhero and what it will take to stay number one. Head over to Self to read the story in its entirety.

The September issue is the most important and biggest issue of the year for fashion publications. Candy Pratts Prince once said, “September is the January in fashion.” September’s fall fashion issues holds a lot of weight and most luxury houses spend the most amount of advertising dollars in this particular issue.

At one point and time, it was very rare to see a model of color on a September issue. However, things changed a bit last year, when models of color dominated the September issues. Last year, donbleek.com highlighted 14 people of color on the cover of September 2015 issues (see it here).

Rihanna covers the September 2016 issue of W magazine (see it here).
