Serena Williams and husband Alexis Ohanian step out in style for the 2018 Adweek’s Brand Genius Awards on Wednesday night (November 7) at Cipriani in New York City.
The 37-year-old tennis superstar looked so glam in a dazzling silver dress as she stepped out for the event – where she was honored with the Brand Visionary award.

Also stepping out to support Serena was Vogue‘s Editor-in-Chief and her longtime friend Anna Wintour.
During the event, Anna – who was presented the award last year – took to the stage to honor Serena with a touching tribute.
“When I first met Serena Williams, she was a tennis champion of unbelievable perseverance,” Anna began. “Now, at 37, she is still a tennis champion of unbelievable persistence and power—also, a wife and a mother and a role model for millions of women.”
Anna went on to commend Serena on her accomplishments on and off the tennis court.
“Because she’s always out in front, she’s often the first to be jumped on in moments of tension, as we saw during the U.S. Open,” Anna continued. “What made me the most proud in that moment was the way Serena celebrated the victory of Naomi Osaka, a young player who grew up in awe of Serena. It was a win larger than the match.”
“She has always been a No. 1 tennis player,” Anna concluded. “But in the year of Serena, and with this award tonight, we celebrate an even more impressive feat: becoming a woman far greater than her multitude of victories.”
