Life remains a ball, almost literally, for Serena Williams—quite recent Wozniacki bachelorette-weekend co-star and incoming Met Gala co-chair.
As announced in October, the 23-time major singles winner in New York on May 6 will be co-chairs alongside Lady Gaga and Harry Styles, hand-picked by perennial event champion and tennis mega-fan Anna Wintour.
Three weeks out, the guest list already appears loaded and will rocket up a few notches by the time invitees grace the Metropolitan Museum of Art. What's known so far is that Serena's sister, Venus Williams, and fellow active athlete Cam Newton are both on the roster, as is retired Major League Baseball slugger Alex Rodriguez.
What's more, Venus, Rodriguez and Newton—the Carolina Panthers' star NFL quarterback—are members of Wintour's just-released host committee. And they should feel special, though perhaps not too special—said host committee includes 183 people overall.
Additional host committee members include glittery names such as Lupita Nyong'o, Bradley Cooper, Katy Perry, Donatella Versace, Tom Ford, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra (among other starry couplings).
Serena and Venus' high-profile participation ensures that their names will not be on the Madrid Open's entry list. As previously shared publicly, Serena intends to compete on clay solely in Rome ahead of Roland Garros.
Serena last lit up the Met Gala in 2017, showing off her "baby bump" at the time. Venus has not previously taken part in the Met Gala, but tennis stars such as Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova have been infrequent attendees.
Amidst all the fashion and fanfare, the Met Gala ultimately raises funds for its companion Costume Institute. With an intriguing "Camp: Notes on Fashion" theme this year, gala-goers should be in mighty fine spirits to open their wallets and clutches to give back to the arts.
