While the majority of us were (understandably) distracted by Lady Gaga's extravagant outfit changes, Katy Perry's lit chandelier look and Kim K's jaw-dropping-ly unrealistic waist, Serena Williams was busy winning the 2019 Met Gala red carpet with her choice of footwear.
The 37-year-old wore an stunning, bright yellow Versace gown for the camp-themed event paired with a pair of matching Nike sneakers. Yep, the tennis star ditched the heels and opted for comfort for the biggest night on the fashion calendar.
Watch her shoe reveal below...
And we 100% get it, have you seen how many stairs those celebs have to walk up?
This isn't the first time Serena has combined fashion and functionality in her footwear at high profile events. The tennis star got plenty of kudos from fans for wearing a pair of sneakers to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding reception. The mum-of-one also channelled her inner-athlete at her own nuptials, rocking a pair of bedazzled Nikes on the big day.
Serena, our feet thank you for making sneakers high fashion.
