Happy birthday, Serena Williams!

The tennis star is celebrating her 35th birthday today and in honor of both her unparalleled accomplishments and her special day, it's time for a trip down memory lane with a look at some of her best moments from the past year—as captured by the lady of the hour herself on Instagram.

Globetrotting for the Sake of Fashion

We all know Serena as one of the greatest tennis players of all time and one-half of a mighty sisterly doubles duo. However, the athlete also loves fashion and has both modeled and launched her own lines, plus she's a regular on the international circuit, hanging here with Ciara and Giuseppe Zanotti during Milan Fashion Week.

Even from this angle, her riding style looks pretty flawless.

Attention to Detail

A woman's work is never done. Looking poised to take the high-fashion world by storm, Serena shared this pic of herself from behind the scenes, putting the finishing touches on her Serena's Signature Statement show during its debut at New York Fashion Week.

Real Women Rule

As for how her line translates for women off the runway—Serena made sure all of her fans know that her clothes are just as hot on her as they were on the full-time models.

22 Grand Slam Titles

Grand Slam No. 22

Serena notched her seventh Wimbledon singles title this summer, no big deal, and tied the Open Era record for Grand Slam singles titles.

Sisterly Love

And through it all, no list of Serena's best moments would be complete without a pic of her with her best friend in the world, sister Venus Williams. The two are nearly inseparable and Serena constantly reminds fans how cool her big sis is.

Happy birthday, Serena. We can't wait to see which record you'll smash next.
