The award-winning athlete wore a bespoke Thom Browne ensemble for the prestigious event, featuring a black sequin floor-length gown, a billowing cape with a cascading train, and a floral diamond necklace.
The blonde wig, worn in a sleek braid, added to her stunning look that earned her the title of Fashion Icon of the Year.
Reflecting on the events of 2023, Williams wrote in the TikTok caption, “My 2023 included having a baby.”
“After having a baby, it kind of feels like you got hit by a bus. Not only your body, but your mind too. (Well, at least for me.) Here’s to 2024… And getting my mind and body back!”
Williams and her husband, Alexis Ohanian, welcomed their second daughter in August 2023. The tennis legend shared the news on social media with a heartwarming video featuring Ohanian, their 4-year-old daughter Olympia, and the newest addition to their family.
The Met Gala in May 2023 served as the initial platform for Williams to reveal her pregnancy. Having met Ohanian in Rome in 2015, the couple got engaged in December 2016 and exchanged vows in a lavish ceremony in New Orleans in November 2017, just two months after Olympia’s birth.
