Vogue ‘Serves’ Designer Tennis Balls To Celebrate US Open

To celebrate the US Open Tennis Championships, Vogue has commissioned twelve designers to create customized tennis balls—giving the sport a new high-fashion spin.

Fashion designers such Diane von Furstenberg, Peter Som, and even tennis legend Maria Sharapova, have contributed to add their own signature style to each tennis ball.

These limited edition balls have been decorated with everything from leather to flowers, rhinestones, pearls and even metal studs and spikes!

While they are pretty to look at, we doubt any tennis athlete would be serving these balls during a game—unless their intent is to hurt their opponent.
