Olympic uniforms Page 1
The ladies of Olympic beach volleyball wear teeny bikins, whilst their male counterparts don full-on t-shirts and shorts. Is it fair? We think not.
We present, in no particular order, our list of best and worst dressed athletes from the Olympic opening ceremony. Here’s a preview: Great Britain did not make the best-dressed list. Eek.
We’ll readily admit we have Olympics fever, but did you catch the opening ceremony Friday night? More importantly, did you catch the uniforms? From the Democratic Republic of Congo’s teal pants to Brazil’s neon green and yellow miniskirts, we’ve got every last look in the gallery below. And if you don’t see your favorite, don’t worry — we’re uploading as we go.
Click through the gallery to see what Chris Benz, Jonathan Adler, Rebecca Minkoff, Mary Alice Stephenson, and Amy Smilovic had to say about the Olympics. What we learned: everyone loves men’s swimming. Also, the Opening Ceremony is today, you guys!!
There was (is?) a big fuss over Ralph Lauren making the U.S. Olympic team‘s gear in China, but at least he didn’t do anything illegal when he outsourced labor overseas. What the Egyptian Olympic committee is doing, however, is very illegal: they’re dressing their athletes in counterfeit Nike gear.
We thought that the uniforms Stella McCartney designed for the British Olympic Team were pretty great, even if others didn’t. In an interview with the Financial Times, McCartney delves into her design process and explains her thoughts about the negative critiques.
In case you had any lingering doubts that France and Italy are the chicest countries of them all, let us take this opportunity to put them to rest.
Yesterday, we told you why we’re not surprised that the Ralph Lauren-designed U.S. Olympic team uniforms were made in China. But it seems that lawmakers don’t feel the same, and neither does Fox News‘ Bob Beckel.
Ralph Lauren has just unveiled the uniforms that our athletes will be sporting come July 27th, otherwise known as the 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony . Spiffy stuff, to be sure, but if we didn’t know any better we’d think the athletes were a unit of naval officers.
