In her first public appearance since (accidentally) revealing her pregnancy on Snapchat, a radiant Serena Williams stunned in an emerald Versace dress while walking the red carpet at the annual Met Gala. The world No. 1 was accompanied by fiance Alexis Ohanian. (Yes, Serena is still No. 1 in the world while approaching her third trimester.)
Officially known as a benefit outing for The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute, the Met Gala is basically rich people Halloween with a $30,000 a plate dinner.
Beyonce, Madonna, Rihanna, Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen, Kim Kardashian, Reese Witherspoon, Selena Gomez, John Legend, Kate Hudson, one of the Jonas brothers and both of the Olsen twins were among the dozens of celebrities shimmering on the red carper which, as usual, was dominated by Rihanna, who was dressed in a Mel Gottenberg dressoutfit thing that made her look like the world's most beautiful azalea.
