The Met Gala is an event that takes place every first Monday in May and which links fashion, art and charity, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Organized for the first time in 1946, the gala inaugurates the Costume Institute's fashion exhibition at the MET, to which the funds raised from the evening are donated. Since 1995, Anna Wintour, global editorial director of Vogue and president of the Met Ball, began curating the event.

For the 2024 edition, Serena wore an incredible shimmering gold-colored dress customized especially for her by Balenciaga. The one-shoulder dress features magnificent long drapes and is coordinated with long black gloves embellished with jewels.

Venus opted for a very particular Tom Ford outfit, with a balcony top with very elegant shiny round studs.

Sharapova chose an Prabal Gurung incredible princely outfit with very spring-summer tones, characterized by the lime color and two huge floral motifs on the forearms and coordinated make-up.
