After missing out last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 2021 Met Gala at New York is back and the red carpet saw celebrities from every walk of life donning stunning outfits from the best designers in the world.
The event was co-chaired by Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, tennis star Naomi Osaka and Amanda Gorman. Needless to say, many top tennis stars, including former co-chair Serena Williams, US Open champion Emma Raducanu and runner-up Leylah Fernandez were present at the event.
Naomi Osaka, who is currently the frontrunner of women’s tennis, was seen paying tribute to her indigenous heritage at the 2021 Met Gala. The Japanese star hails from a Haitian background and was seen wearing wearing a Japanese-Haitian inspired outfit from Louis Vuitton. She was accompanied by her boyfriend Cordae at the mega event.
Meanwhile, 23-time grand slam champion Serena Williams was also present at the event and was seen wearing a multi color furry cape over her silver dress. She was accompanied by her husband Alexis Ohanian at the event.
