London 2012 Olympic Fashion! Opening ceremony uniforms.

The London 2012 Olympics start tomorrow, and we couldn't be more excited!  What will the Brits show to us in the opening ceremony? Will it be more spectacular than Beijings? One thing that London will be showing us is Fashion, and not just on the celebrities in attendance but on the athletes themselves. This year the Olympics have some of the most well known luxury designers outfitting their country's uniforms. Ralph Lauren, Stella McCartney, Armani, Prada and Hermes, are just some of the few who are putting their labels and designs on their athletes. The parade of athletes this year will almost be a mini catwalk. We're not complaining ;) Just take a look at these designer uniforms.

Despite the controversy of USA uniforms being made in China, Ralph Lauren outfits not only the opening ceremony uniforms for the team, but Olympic Village wear as well. You will soon be able to purchase some village wear for yourself as Ralph Lauren will sell replicas of the blazer for $598 and the Beret for $55.


Italy may perhaps have the best uniforms as Armani dresses them and Prada dresses their sailing team



The UK has the infamous Stella McCartney dressing the athletes, but their opening ceremony uniforms look a little airline-ish.


France has the fabulous Hermes dressing them and in true French form, I think their uniforms look anything but...


Cedella Marley, the daughter of Bob Marley, got to design Jamaica's Uniform this time and I think they look streamlined yet festive.


Germany opted to use fashion's trend of  bright colors as their choice of uniform


While New Zealand took a very Dreary Gray route

Perhaps the biggest Fashion Faux Pas of Olympic uniforms goes to Spain for enlisting a Russian designer to design their uniforms. We aren't loving it either.


So who's uniform are you loving? hating? and more importantly who are you rooting for?
Go Team USA!
