The world of sports and high fashion collided on Monday night. Angel Reese, Chicago Sky rookie, attended the prestigious 2024 Met Gala event at The Metropolitan Museum of Art New York Monday night.

Angel Reese is the first WNBA Rookie to attend this event. This is a rare occurrence given the Met Gala typically coincides with the WNBA preseason. This scheduling clash makes it uncommon for even the most seasoned veterans to make the trip.

It's worth noting that Brittney Griner, another iconic WNBA figure, was a rare exception who attended the event in 2023. However, the attendance of Reese, at such a high-profile event is a testament to her rising star in the world of basketball.

But this was not just any other day for Reese. The Met Gala coincided with her 22nd birthday, making the event even more special for her. Reese chose to celebrate this double occasion in style. She was seen wearing a custom dress from the British label 16Arlington. The young WNBA star looked radiant and completely at ease amidst the glitz and glamour of the fashion world.

As the new season approaches, fans of the WNBA are eagerly waiting to see Angel Reese in action on the basketball court. But for now, they can take pride in the fact that one of their own has made a significant mark in an arena that is far removed from the basketball court.
