Emma Raducanu attended the Met Gala in New York alongside A-list celebs and other sports stars after winning the US Open.

On Saturday, the 18-year-old won her first major tournament, and 48 hours later, she was on the Met Gala red carpet with Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Lorde, Lewis Hamilton, Venus & Serena Williams, and Simone Biles.

She attended the ceremony in New York City, nine miles from Flushing Meadows, where she won the US Open. She donned a black and white Chanel costume.

Raducanu, who finished her A-Levels a little over three months ago, accessorized her look with pearl body jewelry.

"Never thought I would see this... coolest thing." the Brit captioned a photo of herself posing in front of a billboard while traveling in New York on Instagram.

The Met Gala invitation was only the latest accolade for the teen's outstanding performance on the court.

Raducanu made a round of major US talk shows on Monday, including an appearance on Good Morning America.

She said she planned to frame the letter from the Queen congratulating her on her US Open victory, which she clinched with a victory in the final over another adolescent, Canadian Leylah Fernandez.

The Queen's personal greeting to Raducanu, which was published on the Royal Family website, said: "I'd like to express my congratulations on your victory in the US Open Tennis Championships.

"It's an incredible accomplishment for someone so young, and it's a credit to your hard work and devotion.
