Lily Cole, Karen Elson, Kate Moss, and Naomi Campbell at the 2012 London Olympics Closing Ceremonies.
Of the many assets that the Brits have shown off as the hosts of the 2012 London Olympics, style has certainly been one of the strongest. From their Stella McCartney designed uniforms to their killer idea to have an on-site nail artist for athletes, there's been a lot more to gush over in these summer games than just the gymnasts' scrunchies. It's been a stylish Olympics all around, from Michael Jackson swimsuits to the aforementioned nail art, but the closing ceremony is helping us realize fashion dreams we never even knew we had. Gilded in Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, Burberry, Roksanda Illincic, Victoria Beckham, Jonathan Saunders, Erdem, Christopher Kane, and Vivienne Westwood, a coterie of supermodels "stormed," as much of the international press is saying, the enormous, fire-lit runway at the closing ceremony, a fearsome representation of British beauty that is sure to make the Queen proud. Models including original supermodel Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Georgia May Jagger, Jourdan Dunn, Lily Cole, and Stella Tennant were like human gold medals in metallics, feathers, and beads of all kinds. The veritable model army stomped down the runway to David Bowie's "Fashion," an appropriate musical choice if we've ever heard one.
