The retired tennis superstar, 42, dripped in gold for the occasion, wearing a metallic gown by Balenciaga. The one-shoulder dress featured a sash that turned into a dramatic train.

The mother-of-two paired the glamorous look with black opera-length gloves, sheer black tights and matching heels.

The star wore a golden floral accessory in her hair, rings over her gloves to further sparkle up the look, and an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch to keep with the Garden of Time dress code.

The dress was inspired by the fashion house’s couture collection presented in 2022. According to Vogue the atelier dedicated ‘150 hours to pattern-making and crafted the couture piece from 25 meters of gold foil-laminated taffeta sourced from Italy.’

‘It’s truly been an honor to collaborate with the talented Balenciaga team on such a memorable and glamorous piece,’ she told the publication.

Williams was styled by Kesha McLeod for the event.

The tennis champion also shared a clip of herself getting her makeup done ahead of the gala via her Instagram Stories.

Also present at this year’s gala was Serena’s sister Venus Williams, 43, who looked equally as stunning in a mirrored Marc Jacobs gown.

The sparkling sister duo happily posed for snaps together during fashion’s biggest night.

Last year Serena surprised her fans when she revealed a baby bump at the Met Gala.

The star stunned in a black gown with pearls for the 2023 Karl Lagerfeld-themed event, as she announced that she was expecting her second daughter, Adira River Ohanian, with her Reddit cofounder husband Alexis Ohanian.

The Costume Institute’s spring exhibition falls on the first Monday in May every year and is held at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

This year the event is titled Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion while the dress code is The Garden of Time.

Jennifer Lopez, Zendaya, Bad Bunny and Chris Hemsworth are this year’s co-chairs. Also on the committee is Vogue’s Anna Wintour.

The honorary chairs for the evening are Loewe creative director Jonathan Anderson and TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew.

‘This year’s co-chairs reflect a variety of career achievements, and all have distinct style histories with the Met Gala,’ Vogue shared.

The showcase will feature approximately 250 items drawn from The Costume Institute’s permanent collection – with many of the pieces too fragile to ever be worn again.

The pieces will all be displayed using elements such as AI, GCI, and more while playing up themes of land, sea, and sky.

‘It is very much an ode to nature and the emotional poetics of fashion,’ said Andrew Bolton, Wendy Yu Curator in Charge of The Costume Institute, of the upcoming exhibition.

‘One thing I hope this show will activate is that sensorial appreciation of fashion.’

Guests who attended included Kim Kardashian, her sisters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Dua Lipa, Gigi Hadid, Doja Cat, Emily Ratajkowski and more.

Gwendoline Christie, La La Anthony and Ashley Graham are hosting while YouTuber Emma Chamberlain is expected to interview stars on the red carpet.
