Opening Ceremony

I've been pretty excited about the Olympics this year. I am a sucker for the meaning of the games: the world coming together in friendly competition and more than that I love to see the proud faces on the podium as the athletes receive their medals. It seems that the fashion world has gone patriotic this summer as well. Designers from Chanel to Lanvin showed their stars, stripes and spirit of the games.

Project Runway got in the spirit as well, when designers were challenged to create looks for the female athletes to wear to the Opening Ceremony.

Obviously my favorite, McQ, spring '08

Chanel, Spring '08

Nike ad, it doesn't completely fit with this post, but as an athlete myself, I found it inspiring.
