Karlie Kloss may have snagged the coveted September cover of British Vogue, but Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Karen Elson, and more star in an Olympic-themed photoshoot inside the issue, which is actually part of the upcoming Closing Ceremony.
Kloss, who also fronts the September cover of Vogue Japan, dons a pair of metallic yellow pants and a printed blouse by Jonathan Saunders on the cover of British Vogue. But those gilded bottoms are nothing compared to the bespoke gowns worn by Campbell, Moss, and more in an editorial appropriately titled “Midas Touch.”
Photographer Nick Knight snapped the supers in fancy creations by Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane, and Burberry. The looks are presumably the same ones that the models will wear during the Olympics Closing Ceremony on August 12.
