NEW YORK – Talk about a quick recovery. Only three days after her shocking loss in the U.S. Open final, Serena Williams went from the court to the runway to show the latest collection of her fashion label, S by Serena Williams.

And she brought her baby daughter along for the ride: As she made her traditional post-show bow, wearing a snakeskin miniskirt that she designed, she was carrying little Olympia, 2, in her arms.

As befitting a tennis legend, Williams had some prominent fans in attendance, notably Kim Kardashian, TV host Gayle King, and Vogue editor Anna Wintour.

Also attending: #MeToo movement founder Tarana Burke, who called Williams “strong in so many ways, not just physically.”
