In one of the most anticipated reunions of recent history, the ladies of the Spice Girls came together for their first performance in four years at the 2012 London Olympics closing ceremony. The fabulous fivesome rode into the Union Jack spoked stage on light-encrusted London cabs and performed a medley of "Wannabe" and "Spice Up Your Life." Posh, Ginger, Baby, Sporty, and Scary were glowing and exuberant for this reunion performance, wearing updated high fashion versions of their signature Spice costumes.

One Direction

One of the most impressive takeaways from this 2012 London Olympics closing ceremony has to be the exemplary showcase of British talent. Representing the youngest generation, the boys of One Direction graced the Olympic stage for a high-energy performance of their hit "What Makes You Beautiful" to an audience of 1 billion people in their hallmark tailored coordinates. The color palette for tonight's celebration was a cool complementary set of white, navy, and grey. A careful balance of polished casualwear, the 2012 VMA performers paired chino trousers, crisp button-ups, and skinny lapeled blazers with low-top Converse Chuck Taylors, nautical striped accessories (though, the suspenders took a night off), and untucked shirts.

Ryan Lochte

Let's talk about Ryan Lochte. He's the 27-year-old American swimmer who made his Olympic debut at the 2004 Athens Olympics when he was just 19. He swam alongside Olympic phenom Michael Phelps (ever heard of him?) in the men's 400m individual medley this weekend and won GOLD for the good ol' U-S-of-A. BUT he was reportedly in danger of not receiving his medal because of a controversial accessory move en route to the podium: the dude popped in a set of American flag grills. It's not like we've never seen grills before (we ARE the network that brought you From G's to Gents sweetheart Riff Raff after all), it's just that, when you're part of a team that has posh Opening Ceremony uniforms crafted by Ralph Lauren complete with smart little berets, throwing on a pair of diamond grills is definitely a curveball. For a dude to pull a style stunt this ballsy, we KNEW there had to be more to this budding fashion icon, so we did a little research. To follow are our findings, and in the spirit of the international games, we're doling out (and subtracting) points as they contribute to Ryan's overall style score.
