US Open 2021 winner Emma Raducanu made her red carpet debut at Monday evening’s Met Gala in New York City.

The 18-year-old tennis star attended her first gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art while wearing a monochrome co-ord set, which Vogue reported is from Chanel’s Resort 2022 collection, and consisted of a skirt, a cropped top, and an oversized jacket.

The British athlete paired the set with a pearl waist chain, black patent boots, and Tiffany & Co diamond earrings for the event, according to Vogue, which took place two days after her tennis victory on Saturday.

Raducanu also turned to Chanel for her celebratory outfit on Saturday, as reported by The Times of London, where she wore a black sequin mini dress and white trainers after defeating Canadian player Leylah Annie Fernandez in a one-hour and 51-minute match.

The Times reported that during her acceptance speech, she gestured towards Billie Jean King, her 77-year-old icon, and said: “I hope that the next generation can follow in the example of some of the greats right here.”

Raducanu herself secured a place as “one of the greats” by becoming the first British woman in 44 years to win a Grand Slam singles title. Insider’s Barnaby Lane previously reported that, along with a trophy, the teenager was awarded $2.5 million.

Speaking to British Vogue for its October issue, Raducanu said she used to be “a very shy little girl” but her current confidence stems from “inner belief” in her abilities, and her East Asian heritage.

“My mum comes from a Chinese background, they have very good self-belief. It’s not necessarily about telling everyone how good you are, but it’s about believing it within yourself. I really respect that about the culture,” she added.

Raducanu’s double dose of Chanel in one week led to the Evening Standard suggesting that it is likely she could have entered into a brand sponsorship with the French fashion house.

Forbes further predicts that the millionaire’s victory will pave the way for her as an “it” athletic star with increasing “immense commercial power” outside of sport.
