Over the years, both Venus and Serena appeared at several Met Gala ceremonies, where they showcased their fashion and style. Recently, older sister Williams shared a photo on her Instagram story, where she recalled her first Met Gala event with the great American fashion journalist, Andre Leon Talley.

In her story, she shared a photo with the great man, and in the caption, she wrote, “Memories… the beautiful Andre and my first Met Gala.” Venus further reminisces, “Also, I don’t think there’s a hairstyle I’ve never had!”

In particular, Venus reposted this image from Andre Leon Talley’s official account as his team posted several photos with several celebrities, including Venus. Unfortunately, the former creative director of Vogue magazine passed away this year in January.
