Olympic Closing Ceremony Fashion Show

At the closing ceremony for the London Olympics there was a mini fashion show. Famous British models were driven into the stadium in huge trucks with fashion photographs of their outfits on the side. Then the pictures were ripped off the side of the trucks to reveal the models all wearing gold dresses from British designers like Paul Smith and Burberry. Some people loved that the famous models were featured, but others thought that it was bad to have the whole Olympics celebrating people who worked really hard to be successful, and then show models who starved themselves to become what they are. I loved all the dresses and I thought that it was cool that the closing ceremony featured fashion, but I also understand those people who did not like all the super models.


  1. It would be great to see some of the Olympic athletes doing some catwalk modelling for the top designers, don't you think? They would probably have to adapt the patterns to accommodate a more muscular physique!

  2. That's a really interesting perspective that you brought up about the models verses the athletes. I hadn't really thought about it like that before. It is very nice to read your blog and hear new opinions about the popular fashion world!

  3. Nice blog!! Poor models, they work hard too and are following their dreams.
    Who's the strongest, who's the prettiest, who's the best?...Sick really.
