The 30-year-old, who previously won in Beijing in 2015, timed 12.43 seconds to edge out Olympic champion Jasmine Camacho-Quinn of Puerto Rico (12.44sec) with Kendra Harrison of the United States taking bronze (12.46).
Williams, running in the outsider's lane two, rose at the final hurdle alongside Camacho-Quinn and Harrison.
However, Williams found just that bit more to cross ahead of her two more fancied rivals.
For Camacho-Quinn it was an improvement of one place from last year; for Harrison it was once again a final disappointment.
"I just came out of the blocks and hit the first hurdle."
