Serena Williams is 'Unretouched' on the Cover of Harper's Bazaar and She Looks AMAZING

‘Maybe, just maybe, my voice will help her.’

Tennis star and all-around icon, Serena Williams graced the cover of Harper’s Bazaar August issue in a range of photographs which were unretouched and still look pretty incredible.

In the two iconic gold covers, Serena wears a Ralph Lauren and a Stella McCartney dress.

She also wrote a personal essay for the mag in where she opens up about sexism in the industry, being body shamed and that notorious US Open incident.

‘I’ve been called every name in the book. I’ve been shamed because of my body shape. I’ve been paid unequally because of my sex. I’ve been penalized a game in the final of a Major because I expressed my opinion or grunted too loudly…And these are only the things that are seen by the public. In short, it’s never been easy. But then I think of the next girl who is going to come along who looks like me, and I hope, ‘Maybe, just maybe, my voice will help her.’
