Forty-eight hours after her historic win at the US Open final, the 18-year-old found herself on the red carpet of one of the year’s most exclusive events.
In a sign of her new-found superstardom, Emma joined the likes of Kim Kardashian West, Jennifer Lopez and Billie Eilish at the annual fashion soiree, which raises funds for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.
She wore a black-and-white Chanel ensemble at the A-list event in New York City, nine miles from Flushing Meadows, where she won the US Open.
The British tennis star, who was sitting her A Levels little more than three months ago, also wore pearl body jewellery to complement her outfit.
The Met Gala invitation was just the latest piece of recognition for the teenager’s stunning on-court success.
She said she would frame the letter of congratulations sent to her from the Queen following her US Open triumph, sealed with her victory in the final over another teen, Canadian Leylah Fernandez.
The personal message from the Queen, which was posted on the Royal Family website, read: “I send my congratulations to you on your success in winning the United States Open Tennis Championships.
“It is a remarkable achievement at such a young age, and is testament to your hard work and dedication.
“I have no doubt your outstanding performance, and that of your opponent Leylah Fernandez, will inspire the next generation of tennis players.
“I send my warmest good wishes to you and your many supporters.”
