  • The tennis star has been widely praised for forgoing retouching and championing natural beauty and strength.

Serena Williams has once again proven herself to be a champion both on and off the tennis court - only this time, she's making her voice heard as a champion of natural strength and beauty.

The 23-time Grand Slam winner is the star of the August 2019 issue of Harper's BAZAAR, and both the cover shot and the images inside the magazine are entirely unretouched.

"To celebrate the strength and beauty of women in their most authentic states, Harper's Bazaar produced all of the stories in their feature well without any airbrushing at all," a spokesperson for the magazine told INSIDER.

The striking photos - which accompany a powerful essay written by Williams - were taken by photographer Alexi Lubomirski.

Swathed in glimmering gold in every shot, Williams looks every inch a queen.

In the cover shot, the 37-year-old wears a Stella McCartney gown and Tiffany & Co. earrings and necklace.

I really want to make exercise a regular part of my life, but can't seem to make myself actually do it. How do I make the motivation last?

I really want to make exercise a regular part of my life, but can't seem to make myself actually do it. How do I make the motivation last? Searching for external motivation to work out is a mistake, says personal trainer Jordan Syatt. You have to take action, then motivation will follow.

She posted another shot on her Instagram (curiously while she was playing a match at Wimbledon) in which she's seen in a Tom Ford dress.

Both Williams and the magazine have been widely praised for not airbrushing the photos.

"Brilliant. Brave. Bold. You are an inspiration," writer Elaine Welteroth commented on Instagram.

"Always an inspiration. Not only for athletes, for all women. THANK YOU," added actor Cecilia Suárez.

"AND UNRETOUCHED PHOTOS. Thank you, sis! You make SUCH a difference in the world in ways we cannot even respect yet!" wrote another fan.

"Unretouched FTW!!! Thank you! Can't wait to show these to my daughter," said activist Sally Kohn.
