Wow Ma’am, that’s a GRAND SLAM!
Aside from being a champion pro tennis star, new mom, wife, and celebrity, Serena Williams still manages to amaze us with her dedication to her passions. Just recently TMZ discovered that Serena pulled a quick Kylie Jenner as she patented the name “Aneres,” which is her name backwards. Now what makes this related to the beauty world? Under the patent, she included 18 beauty categories including lip gloss, lipstick, eye shadow, powder, foundation, eyeliner, mascara, makeup remover, skin care, perfume, body lotion, shampoo, dry shampoo, hair rinses, hair spray and gel, cosmetics cases, and makeup brushes. Talk about being an overachiever in everything! Since her beauty company and line is still in its infancy, there’s no word yet on any formulations, names or packaging. But don’t worry, PV girls (and tennis enthusiasts), we will keep you in the know!
