Gold Medal Style: Olympic Looks Through the Ages

BlogHer Original Post

Ahhh, the Summer Olympics. Time to gather the family around the TV, pop open some fizzy drinks, and MAKE FUN OF ATHLETES' OUTFITS. Because that's what sports are really about, right? I mean, why else would The Lakers have worn hot pants when I was growing up?

Although our Olympic ancestors provided us plenty to gawk at, TEAM 2012 is taking things to new heights with everyone from Silver Foxes to Celebrity Spawn getting in on the action (both Stella McCartney and Cedella Marley are designing for their national teams, Great Britain and Jamaica respectively). And what better way to kick off our Olympic Fashion Slide Show than with the US's very own, 2012 Ralph Lauren Designed Olympic Team Opening Ceremony Uniforms.

Um, Ralph? I don't think dressing our athletes like a bunch of Ivy League Yacht Rockers is the way to ingratiate ourselves to the rest of the world.
