In Honor of March Madness: The 100 Most Stylish Athletes

March Madness, the high point of every college basketball fan's calendar year, kicks off today with the first round.

In addition to currently holding a No. 1 worldwide ranking in tennis (get it, girl!), Serena's a trained nail tech—hence her famously wild manicures, which she shows off both on- and off-court. She's also got her own clothing line, Aneres (yep, that's "Serena" spelled backwards).
