Serena Williams's 1950s-Themed Baby Shower Was a Grand Slam

The tennis star totally aced her mom-to-be party, complete with star-studded besties clad in poodle skirts. What more could “baby O” ask for?

Serena Williams—Queen of the Court, Protector of the Grand Slam and Mother of what we can only assume will be the next G.O.A.T.—has been serving nothing but baby mama realness since her pregnancy announcement in mid-April.

Just one week after learning she was pregnant, Williams secured her 23rd Grand Slam title at the Australian Open. She since flaunted her “Baby O” (a nickname which refers to Williams’ fiancé, Alexis Ohanian) bump in an iconic (and totally nude) cover for Vanity Fair, and she even spent one morning in Month 7 on the court doing “easy standing drills” (though they don’t look easy to us, and we’re not even pregnant). This has been one epic pregnancy, and the baby shower, which took place at “Baby O Diner,” followed suit.

Eva Longoria, Ciara and Kelly Rowland were among the famous pals that showed up dressed to the nines for Williams’ baby shower. The party, photos from which accumulated on Instagram under the tag #ShakeRattleAndRoll2017, featured decor like an old-timey jukebox and a roarin’ red truck. Party-goer ensembles included ruffled bobby socks, big-ass pearls and handkerchiefs as hairbands all over the place.

Basically, you’ll want all your parties to be ’50s-themed after you peep these pics.

O’ Baby!! Love You Rena. Truly an Exciting Time! #Memories. #ShakeRattleandRoll2017
