She may have looked incredibly fancy at the celebrations of the royal nuptials over the weekend but Serena Williams truly is an athlete at heart.

The tennis champ attending the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle over the weekend, and though she donned a beautiful blush pink gown with matching heels during the ceremony, it’s her shoe choice during the reception that has people talking.

When Serena changed into a floor-length Valentino gown for the after party she also added a secret accessory for comfort, a pair of joggers hidden carefully under the gown. And we couldn’t love this more!

She revealed the secret accessory on her Instagram account in a video that showed her lifting the gorgeous gown to reveal the black sneakers. And it looks like this is something she tends to a lot when attending events.

She captioned the video, “Little known fact: I often wear sneakers under my evening gown. These @maisonvalentino @pppiccioli gave to me last min. I told him be careful I tend to be comfy for long nights #beingserena


We reckon Serena was the smartest one in attendance at the royal reception! We’d choose comfort over style any day! Although for some reason, Serena still looks incredibly stylish in her Valentino/sneaker combo!
