The tennis champion is a full blown fashionista! 

Serena Williams domination on the tennis court is unmatched. But did you know that the world renowned athlete is head-over-heels in love with fashion?

Well, she is -- and the newly crowned Wimbeldon champion (for the seventh time!) took a few moments before launching her latest HSN clothing collection to film an episode of Vogue's "73 Questions." In the 9-minute clip she talks about everything from her favorite food (tacos) to the most romantic thing a guy has ever done for her ("it hasn't happened yet"). 


But what we're most jazzed about it is all the tid bits Williams dished about her personal style, beauty and love for fashion. Basically she's obessed with shoes -- especially Mariah Carey's -- and if she wasn't killing the tennis game she would be a full blown fashion designer. But that's just a taste of what she reveals.
