Brittney Griner basked in the moment at the 2023 Met Gala in New York City just months after her release from her imprisonment in Russia.

The Phoenix Mercury center attended the annual fashion event with her wife Cherelle. She returned to the United States last December after spending almost 300 days detained in Russia.

“This time last year, I was missing my wife, so to have her right here, to be in this moment — breathtaking,” Cherelle Griner told La La Anthony on the red carpet live stream.

Brittney Griner added that it’s “everything” to be able to attend the Met Gala.

“It’s everything just to be here with my wife and just able to be here,” she said. “It means so much. Get to see this event a lot and actually live it. It’s amazing.”

The WNBA star dressed in a beige suit, while Cherelle wore a white strapless gown. Both ensembles were custom Calvin Klein.

“It is dripping off of us right now,” Brittney said.
