Serena Williams was upset at the U.S. Open last week, but has lived happily ever after, thanks to her rumored boyfriend, Drake. The “Worst Behavior” singer sat front row at Williams’ collection for the HSN runway show on Tuesday, placed between Anna Wintour and Venus Williams. Nearby were Gigi Hadid, Lily Aldridge and Drake’s own sizable security team.

Drake chatted up Wintour before the lights went down and showed no reaction when the DJ played his tunes “Hotline Bling” and “Back to Back” during Williams’ catwalk extravaganza. But he did smile and applaud when the sports — and, increasingly, fashion — star came out after for a victory lap. Drake then headed backstage to congratulate Williams, 33, personally.

“I am really happy to be here and loving every moment,” Williams told reporters. She credits late nights for her success. “I don’t sleep, so I think that helps,” she said. “I literally don’t sleep. Not healthy for me, but I’ll sleep tonight. I’ll work it out tonight.” Williams and Drake, 28, were also spotted at Lucky Strike NYC Sunday, where they eschewed couture in favor of bowling shoes. “Drake had his friends set up in the bowling alley’s DJ booth, and even hopped on and DJ’d a few songs throughout the night,” we’re told. Also in attendance was Williams’ little sister Isha Price.

CAITLYN MAKING IT LEGAL

Caitlyn Jenner wants to make her new identity official. Jenner filed papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Tuesday, seeking to be legally declared a woman, a source confirmed to Daily News reporter Nancy Dillon. The filing also seeks to legally change her name from Bruce to Caitlyn. Jenner has asked to keep much of her personal information private because of various threats, so the filing was “under submission” Tuesday with a judge in Santa Monica, sources said.

Fashion Week’s got game, with Russell Westbrook on hand for the style shows.

WESTBROOK PASSES ON A SHORT SHOT

NBA All-Star Russell Westbrook is known for his au courant fitted and tapered style, but he wouldn’t welcome an NBA return to the Bob Cousy era of short-shorts. “No, that’s a little too extreme,” the Oklahoma City guard told us at True Religion’s Fashion Week show. Westbrook cites Michael Jordan, Walt Frazier and Allen Iverson as NBA fashion icons and says that with his 6-foot-3, 187-pound build, he can shop anywhere. “I don’t know about those other guys, but I can buy off the rack pretty much anywhere,” he says.

TYRA RIGHT ON ’CUE

Tyra Banks fueled up for the debut of her ABC show, “Fablife,” with a Southern-style barbecue. Banks, who still hosts “America’s Next Top Model,” fiercely chowed down at Brother Jimmy’s in Union Square on Sunday before starting week one of her new talk show. “She was enjoying a barbecue chicken sandwich and sharing a bunch of side dishes,” says an onlooker at the eatery. Our spy notes that Banks was easily recognized by fashionistas in town for Fashion Week.

BIG DEPP CHARGE

We get it, you’re in love. Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were lip-locked at the premiere of “Black Mass” at the Toronto Film Festival. The pair married in February, but by all appearances the honeymoon isn’t over. Heard did Depp a favor by wearing red lipstick that matched her hubby’s shirt. She also went with a black dress designed by Victoria Beckham.

A BUSH, TO THE LETTER

Even without the initials, we know who it is: Jenna Bush Hager carried a monogrammed purse to the Lela Rose Spring 2016 runway show during Fashion Week. Both Hager’s dad and grandfather have served as President, and her uncle Jeb is giving it a try for 2016. This is the first time we’ve seen Hager out and about since she gave birth to daughter Poppy Louise last month. She also swung by Prabal Gurung’s fashion show.
