Serena, 40, opened up during a video feature for Vogue in which she looked back at her iconic fashion moments.

“This is at the royal wedding, when my friend Meghan married Harry,” she said. “Again, another Versace look and my jewels are from Bulgari, which was just stunning, and I have a fascinator on.”

“What’s so iconic about this is that I was, like, ‘Royal wedding? I’m definitely wearing braids,’” Serena said. She revealed that two or three girls were braiding her hair while she slept!

“I was so tired, and I was like ‘I’m going to sleep.’ So I lied down, and then they just kept braiding until the morning, and they finally finished. It was a very long process but it was so worth it,” Serena said.

Serena also talked about her husband Alexis Ohanian‘s outfit.

“I love Alexis’ look as well,” she said. “It reminds me a little bit of Downton Abbey. Alexis is wearing the tails, and he looks a lot younger here, hah!”

Serena made a big announcement this week.
