Co-host Roger Federer and his wife, Mirka, brought tennis elegance to the Met Gala.
The couple turned heads on the red carpet, showcasing their impeccable sense of style and grace. The Swiss tennis legend, who retired at last year's Laver Cup in London, looked dashing in a classic black tuxedo, while Mirka captivated in a pink semi-sheer gown with unique feathered detail.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City was abuzz on Monday night as the who's who of the fashion, film, and music industries gathered for the annual Met Gala. Among the glamorous attendees were also Roger Federer and his wife Mirka.
The 20-time Grand Slam champion was not only a guest but also co-host of the event, alongside Penelope Cruz, Dua Lipa, Michaela Coel, and Vogue's Anna Wintour as revealed earlier this year by Vogue. This year's Met Gala marked a triumphant return to its traditional first Monday in May, following disruptions due to the pandemic.
Federer exuded sophistication in his black tuxedo, complete with a matching bow tie and pristine white shirt. The tennis icon confidently arrived at the prestigious event with his signature dark sunglasses. Standing with his wife Mirka, the pair demonstrated the same strong partnership off the court as they've displayed throughout their 14-year marriage.
Mirka, a former professional tennis player herself, captured attention in her semi-sheer pink gown that gracefully swept the ground. The dress featured an exquisite high neck, feathered detailing, and a waist-accentuating bow. Her blonde hair was elegantly styled back, complementing her dramatic makeup look for the evening.
This year's Met Gala paid tribute to the late German designer Karl Lagerfeld, with the theme "Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty." Lagerfeld, who passed away in 2019 at age 85, was the long-time creative director of Chanel and an influential figure in the fashion world.
