Serena Williams was treated to a lavish baby shower over the weekend with a moden-day guest list and a throwback theme.

The star-studded affair's attendees included sister Venus; actress Eva Longoria; singer Ciara; LaLa Anthony, wife of New York Knicks' star Carmelo; and singer Kelly Rowland, of Destiny's Child fame.

The ladies threw it back, way back, to the 1950s in a themed affair, right down to the venue; the afternoon was hosted at Nick’s 50's Diner in West Palm Beach, Fla.

Serena, Venus and guests fully embraced the nostalgic weekend, posing in front of props and getting decked out in poodle skirts and other vintage attire, and the ladies shared their snapshots of the soiree with the hashtag #ShakeRattleandRoll2017.

The Australian Open champion rocked a yellow poodle skirt, saddle shoes and bandana, while Venus went the route of classic glamour and wore a black-and-white polka dot dress to go along with a red hat and shoes.

Serena's fiancè Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of the social networking site Reddit, also got in on the celebration in his best Grease ensemble.

After confirming her pregnancy earlier this season in the spring, Williams is set to welcome her first child this fall and is planning to return to tennis next year.


Preparing for our biggest project yet.
