The day has finally come. The 2019 Met Gala has arrived, and the red carpet is already proving to be second to none. While Lady Gaga put on quite a show with a slew of different outfit reveals, we couldn’t ignore Serena Williams‘s stunning Versace dress, which she wore with Off-White x Nike sneakers—yes, sneakers. Who cares if this is the most formal event of the year? You still have the right to be comfortable, no?
Williams fans will know this is not the first time she’s worn sneakers to a fancy event. In fact, she wore sneakers at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding reception. This year, Williams is serving as one of Anna Wintour’s co-hosts for the Met Gala, so her sneaker choice is all the more daring—but of course, she pulled it off with aplomb.
