High-waisted swimwear gets a lot of play this week on the form of Serena Williams, who sports a black-and-white number with accent-colored fingernail polish (of course) for a photo shoot.

Heralded photographer Walter Iooss Jr. also shared a photo of Serena yesterday, that on his Instagram account, and it's a sharp one. In researching Iooss's photo dossier on Serena, your trusty Spin keeper also came across this iconic and remarkably candid image, shot in 2009 around the time of Serena's epic meltdown at the U.S. Open.
To be sure, that's a lot of look. Life's a beach for Serena, a Florida resident. Do you like the styling for her shoot?
