Serena Williams has put her tennis shoes to one side in favour of a fabulous LBD that we can't get enough of.

The Grand Slam singles champ, 42, took to Instagram to share a carousel of dazzling photos where she donned a sultry black midi dress. The figure-hugging garment had a scooping round neckline and for an extra eye-catching detail had cut-outs on both hips to reveal diamanté straps.
