There’s nothing that professional basketball player Nneka Ogwumike can’t do. Between her on-court presence and her pre-game style, we find ourselves constantly impressed by the 33-year-old WNBA veteran. But now she’s gone and impressed us further.

On Jan. 29, she attended the New York premiere of Shattered Glass, the new documentary that takes fans behind the scenes of the WNBA and details the realities of being a female professional athlete. The Tubi original, which was officially released on Jan. 31, features commentary from Ogwumike—who also served as the executive producer—Breanna Stewart and Jonquel Q Jones. 

While not more important than the achievement itself—producing a meaningful documentary is only the latest accolade on the athlete’s impressive résumé—we have to take a moment to appreciate the outfit that she wore to the premiere. The former Los Angeles Sparks player has always had good style, and this instance was no different. Ogwumike showed up to the premiere in a chic monochromatic look, including a pair of wide-leg pants, a satin button-down top and a pair of white Adidas sneakers.

The outfit was what we might refer to as casual cool. It wasn’t over the top by any means, but it was a perfectly chic look for her official red carpet debut as an executive producer.

All of this is to say, we are—and always will be—impressed by both her achievements and her style. We can’t wait to see what Ogwumike does next.
