Costumes from “The Matrix” have had an influence on fashion since the first film debuted in 1999. Style-savvy A-listers like Bella and Gigi Hadid, Kim Kardashian and Lupita Nyong’o have already embraced outfits that fit the film’s tiny sunglass and long leather coat aesthetic. And with the fourth flick in the franchise going into production this year, it seems like more “Matrix”-inspired style is likely to hit the streets over the coming months.

In addition to her direct-to-consumer clothing line and longtime Nike deal, Williams invests in female- and minority-founded startup companies through her namesake venture capital fund. For 2019, the tennis pro raked in $29.2 million, according to Forbes, with $4.2 million coming from on-court winnings and $25 million made through off-court ventures.
