US Open winner Emma Raducanu, 18, rubs shoulders with Megan Fox and JLo at Met Gala as star swaps A-Levels for A-Listers

EMMA RADUCANU dazzled in a stunning black and white Chanel ensemble as she attended the Met Gala.

Britain’s 18-year-old US Open champion has gone from completing her A Levels to appearing alongside A-listers as she attended fashion’s biggest night out at New York’s Met Gala.

Raducanu defeated fellow teenager Leylah Fernandez to land a £1.8million cheque and to earn her place among the stars.

She made history as the first British woman to win a Grand Slam since Virginia Wade at Wimbledon in 1977 — in a triumph widely viewed as unparalleled for a young British athlete.

And just 48 hours later she was invited to the event by Vogue's Dame Anna Wintour following her incredible victory on Saturday.

Kim Kardashian, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Kendall Jenner and Billie Eilish were amongst the star-studded faces in attendance.

Raducanu arrived for last night’s bash, known as the Oscars of fashion, wearing a Chanel handkerchief skirt along with a cropped camisole and oversized floral print shirt.

And as she made her way up the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art she proudly showed off the pearl body jewellery the french design house had given her for the party. 


Raducanu wore a number of chains and pearls around her stomach which met in the middle with the iconic CC logo encrusted with pearls and crystals. 

The brunette had black leather ankle boots on her feet as she completed her classic black and white look.

And she looked every inch the champion as she joined a host of big names such as Jennifer Lopez and Megan Fox for the event.

Raducanu even had time to pose alongside Lily-Rose Depp, Whitney Peak, Margaret Qualley and Kristen Stewart in front of the cameras.

Tennis’ newest star is also set to feature in this month's issue of British Vogue.

She will be wearing a series of designer gowns while playing tennis. 

And last night’s Met Gala is just the first of red carpet events that Raducanu will be invited along to after her stunning success.

It has been reported that she has already been asked to attend the premiere of the James Bond film No Time to Die in London later this month.

While The Graham Norton Show on BBC1 and The Jonathan Ross Show on ITV both are contending for an interview slot with the teen.

Raducanu, who was born in Canada to a Romanian father and Chinese mother, already stole the hearts of the US after appearing on Good Morning America and The Today Show yesterday.

She said: “I think that from a young age I've always sort of been brought up to have mental strength.

“My parents… were pretty tough on me when I was young, but I think now it's helping on the biggest stages in the world.

“It was really nice to talk to them after I won. They were just so happy and proud of me… [they're] my toughest critics and very, very hard to please but, yeah, I got them with this one. They couldn't resist.' 

Raducanu also added that she had increased her endurance and mental strength during the tournament as she described her exit from Wimbledon with breathing issues as ‘more of a physical issue’.

She added: “It's like almost natural selection, you know… if you don't [adapt], you lose so it was really fun to experience. I'm just super happy with the week, of course.”

Meanwhile, the 2021 Met Gala kicked off with Kim Kardashian and a person claimed to be Kanye West both arriving in matching outfits alongside Rihanna and ASAP Rocky.

Justin and Hailey Bieber looked amazing on the Met Gala red carpet after his recent VMA win, which was presented to him by Conor McGregor.

Lopez, who attended with Ben Affleck, rocked a long brown dress that showed off her toned legs with a high slit, plunging neckline and large-brim hat.

Bad Guy singer Billie Eilish, 19, looked stunning in a nude Oscar de la Renta ballgown complete with a long tulle train. 

Kendall Jenner stunned in a sheer nude gown with hundreds of hand-sewn jewels on the top layer and around her neck.
