How Tennis Star Emma Raducanu Stole the Fashion World’s Heart

1 2 0

There are cool teens, and then there is Emma Raducanu. The 18 year-old is tennis’ new darling, having won the US Open women’s singles championship this summer. But her work doesn’t end off of the court—the champ has quickly become a rising fashion star, too, having walked the red carpet at the Met Gala and attended London Fashion Week parties.

Raducanu declined to comment on her personal style to The Daily Beast, and so did her stylist Nicky Yates. She was a guest of Chanel at the Met Gala, wearing a white crop top and logomania skirt. The appearance came just two days after Raducanu became the first British player to win at the US Open in over 40 years. Say what you want about Anna Wintour’s impossible to penetrate guest list, but it appears that the Vogue team worked fast on this invite.‌

“Emma fit right in alongside [Chanel] ambassadors Kristen Stewart, Lily-Rose Depp, and Whitney Peak, and wore a beautiful look from their resort collection that felt sporty but in an elevated way,” Janelle Okwodu, senior fashion and culture editor at Vogue, told The Daily Beast. “She wore one of their beautiful pearl belts but also had that incredible flowing silk crepe coat with a great graphic print. Overall a very unexpected outfit but one that worked; she was radiant.”

Perhaps unsurprisingly for a tennis star, white seems to be Raducanu’s color. She wore a glittery Erdem two piece for a London Fashion Week party hosted by British Vogue and Tiffany and Co. The bottom was a long pleated skirt, which was a cute nod to tennis skirts.
