PHOTO OP: Venus + Serena hit the court in high-fashion for Harper's Bazaar

"I'm sure Serena would say I would win the fashion match." -- V
"Venus is so wrong. I mean, I'd win. Come on!" — ReRe

The Sisters Sledge, Venus + Serena Williams, heat up Harper's Bazaar with this high-fashion editorial shot by controversial photog Terry Richardson in Flushing Meadow, home to the US Open.

The sisters were shot cracking choice quotes and their trademark groundies while working Donna Karan, Oscar de la Renta, Versace, Ralph Lauren, Sonia Rykiel, Diane von Furstenberg, Celine, Herve Leger by Max Azria, and more.

Both sisters look incredibly glamorous here, though V is clearly the more natural model with her long lines and regal presence. Plus the sisters playing in high-fashion and stilettos set against the backdrop of Arthur Ashe Stadium is quite jarring - but what tennis-loving lady (or boy) hasn't dreamt about this scenario before (not me, I swear)?

"I feel like I would play a little better if I were as tall as I am in these stilettos." — ReRe

"High heels kind of hurt on the court, but fashion is pain." — V

  1. V's legs are legendary.

  2. V's legs are legendary.

  3. The last pic with Venus is pure beauty.

  4. Where's the doublestuff oreo?

  5. anon 12:18 - that's also my fave of all the pics

    anon 4:40 - that commercial was the funniest one of them all, even better than the one with the mannings!

  6. The last Vee pic is simply devine! Lovesit

    And Serena's first outfit looks totally like sth she'd wear on court! (Maybe sans the shoes)

  7. Very pretty! I like the first one a lot - they look so much alike there.

  8. Venus is the more 'traditionally' model-esque of the two (especially with those legs!) but both sisters have taken some truly lovely photos here.

    I like all of Serena's pictures but I particularly love the picture of Serena in red. Gorgeous colour, the dress fits like a glove, and she looks strong, curvaceous, sexy and glam all at once. Love it.

    Hard to pick a favourite of Vee's - they're all so good and remind me a little of Koto Bolofo's approach of photographing her on the court in evening wear.

  9. these are amazing pictures, i like the very last one of venus.

  10. Uhh, my dinner...
