Over the years, both Venus and Serena appeared in multiple Met Gala ceremonies, where they showed their fashion and style. Recently, the elder Williams sister shared a photo on her Instagram story, where she remembered her first Met Gala event with the great American fashion journalist, Andre Leon Talley.

In her story, she shared the picture with the great man, and in the caption, she wrote, “Memories… Lovely Andre and my first Met Gala.” Venus further reminisced, “Also, I don’t think there is a hairstyle I haven’t had!”

Notably, Venus reposted this picture from Andre Leon Talley’s official account as his team posted a few photos with some celebrities, including Venus. Unfortunately, the former creative director of Vogue magazine passed away this year in January.

Meanwhile, Venus also mentioned her hairstyle, which was pretty short and black at that time. During the early days of her career, she debuted her braided hairstyle, which became instantly popular.

Then, she had plenty of different hairstyles over the years. Sometimes, it’s short, sometimes it’s blonde, and plenty more. Recently, she brought back her braids from the ’90s during the ‘King Richard’ premiere. In a recent Q&A session on Instagram, she talked about bringing her blond color back as well.
