Williams has collaborated with Virgil Abloh of Off-White in the past.
While many are still confused as to what exactly the Met Gala is, there is no denying its impact when it rolls around every year. The fashion statements made by the various celebrities at the event become the subject of memes, ridicule, and even a little bit of adoration. The theme of this year's Met Gala was "Camp" and it was co-chaired by tennis star Serena Williams. Williams has been known as a fashionable athlete in the past and on Monday, that was no different.
Williams showed up to the Red Carpet in a yellow and pink Versace dress alongside her husband Alexis Ohanian Sr. What's even more interesting than the dress though, is the fact that Williams matched her outfit with a pair of Off-White Nike Air Force 1's in the all-yellow "Volt" colorway. The sneaker choice made sense because of just how well the shoes blended in with the dress.
The tennis star's decision to wear Off-White sneakers to the Red Carpet shouldn't come as that much of a shock though. Williams teamed up with Virgil Abloh for some special edition Off-White Nike gear last year that sold out instantly.
Regardless, Abloh must have been proud to see another one of his creations make it to the special event.
