Serving tennis royalty: Venus & Serena Williams ace the 94th Academy Awards


From Compton, Calif. to countless Grand Slam titles to their story being on the big screen to presenting at the Oscars: it can only be tennis royalty in Venus and Serena Williams.


Venus was spotted first on the red carpet, donning a custom plunging white gown with a silver neckline by Elie Saab. Don't miss the matching silver earrings and wide cuffs.






Also dressed in a custom design, Serena arrived in plunging pink Gucci accented with black florals. Sleek glove work and a strong ring game were accessory highlights.






The superstar sisters then linked up for a photo op before heading inside…




... where they opened the ceremony by introducing Beyoncé to perform "Be Alive", an original song from King Richard.
