Serena Williams is used to great serves on the tennis court, but on Saturday she served up great looks!
Williams’ Valentino gown featured a black sleeveless bodice with thin straps atop a lush, floral skirt printed with oversized yellow, red and white blooms. She accessorized with a dazzling, jeweled necklace.
The new mom posed for pics with husband Alexis Ohanian and, via Instagram, gave a shoutout to Valentino creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli for her making her “look special on this special evening.”
Williams also revealed her secret to comfort on formal occasions: sneakers!
The multiple grand slam-winner let on to her “little known fact” in a short video, where she can clearly be seen wearing sneakers as she hikes up her floor-length gown to walk.
“Little known fact: I often wear sneakers under my evening gown,” she wrote on Instagram. “These @maisonvalentino @pppiccioli gave to me last min. I told him be careful I tend to be comfy for long nights #beingserena.”
Pictures of the Quantico actress were shared to Instagram by stylist Mimi Cuttrell.
Both women were among the new Duchess of Sussex’s celebrity pals to be invited to her star-studded royal wedding to Prince Harry.
