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. But in the midst of building your bracket around Florida, Ohio or another team of your choice, you've likely forgotten about the old-school greats who paved the way for today's champs. And while some of the best dressed dudes in the world happen to be basketballers (Dwyane Wade! Carmelo Anthony! Kobe!), there are tons of chic athletes competing in tennis, figure skating, soccer and swimming, too. To wit, we cracked open our history books and took a look back at some of the most fashionable sports stars of all time.

After all, winning doesn't mean a thing unless you do it with style.* Click through the slideshow to see who we selected.

*We kid, of course. We're actually in awe of everyone who possesses any sort of athletic ability. But those who look good while scoring goals or landing Triple Salchows are truly superhuman.

Serena Williams

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).
