WTA champions of the past, present, and future hit the red carpet at the annual Met Gala in New York City on Monday. Serena Williams, Naomi Osaka, Maria Sharapova, Venus Williams, 2021 US Open champion Emma Raducanu and finalist Leylah Fernandez were all in attendance at the annual fundraising gala for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York City.

Chaired by Vogue editor-in-chief and tennis fan Anna Wintour, the event has always had strong ties to tennis. Ajla Tomljanovic and Wimbledon finalist Matteo Berrettini, as well as US Open semifinalist Felix Auger Alliasime and 2017 US Open champion Sloane Stephens were also in attendance on Monday night. 

For this year's gala, World No.3 Osaka was appointed co-chair along with actor Timothee Chalamet, musician Billie Eilish, and poet Amanda Gorman. After a one-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the Met Gala returned with a theme honoring American fashion.
