WNBA games see fashion takeover with viral tunnel walks, major deals

Chicago Sky guard Kysre Gondrezick arrives for a WNBA game against the New York Liberty at Wintrust Arena on June 4, 2024.

When Kysre Gondrezick walked down the WNBA tunnel before games, she meant business.

With her flowy blowout reminiscent of R&B legend Aaliyah, a modelesque walk, and dauntless attitude, the guard demonstrated that her outfits were more than just serving a look.

“I think that my style right now truly resembles where I’m at in my life,” Gondrezick, now formerly of the Chicago Sky, told USA TODAY. “It’s a testament to the embodiment of me being in my womanhood − the wisdom, the grace. I also think it gives me the confidence to completely express myself.”

With the league under a bigger spotlight and acquiring more dollars, the 26-year-old is one of many players promoting themselves on and off the court. They are getting tapped for opportunities in a different arena − the fashion and beauty space.

It’s “a new generation of women that are being unapologetically themselves and [setting trends] through their own styles, their own brands,” she said.
