Are you ready for a match?

As the end of Summer approaches (yes, it is September, ahhh!), we New Yorker's enjoy the Summer to Fall transition with the short trek out to the US Open.  Walking into the stadium, one is still reminded that, even though we are at a sporting event, design and fashion are never left behind.  From the well put together business men and women, to the ever so stylish tennis outfits, the US Open these days could be referred to as a perfect match, pun intended. 

Walking up to my high, high seats (one can only dream to sit court side one day)...
A spectacular view of the Unisphere - one of the most iconic architectural achievements of the 1964/1965 New York World's Fair.  

The ever so stylish Maria Sharapova is not only a tennis dynamite, but now a fashion icon...
Her inspiration for this Nike tennis dress and Tiffany earrings...the shimmering NYC skyline and Frank Gehry.

Sharapova's new line for Cole Haan...
Sharapova is 6'-2", but not afraid to rock heals! Truly a fashionista!

LOVE (again, pun intended) these!

A little touch of tennis in the home.

Ralph does it again!  As the official designer of the 2009 US Open, Ralph Lauren brings the 
All-American look to the courts.

More quintessential Ralph looks from previous seasons.
