The London 2012 Closing Ceremony, which took place at the Olympic Stadium yesterday evening, was not only about British culture and music; it was also about fashion.
A selection of our finest and most iconic supermodels took to the stage showcasing British Fashion to its largest-ever global audience.
They were all dressed in pure gold to celebrate Team GB’s 29-gold-medals haul.
From left to right we have Lily Cole wearing an Erdem gold embroidered and lace cocktail dress with gold Charlotte Olympia ankle-strap pumps.
Stella Tennant rocked a Christopher Kane metal mesh and Swarovski crystal pant suit with a rockstar spiked hairdo. One of my favourites of the night.
Karen Elson was more serene wearing a Burberry gold-lace evening dress with a slit which revealed her Jimmy Choo gold ‘Private’ sandals.
Kate Moss stood out wearing an Alexander McQueen gold-sequined full-length gown with a plunging neckline.
Lily Donaldson wore a Vivienne Westwood Gold Label ‘Olympic Court’ gold-embroidered gown with an abstract baroque pattern detail, inspired by 17th Century English Royalty and the court of King Charles II.
Naomi Campbell was my favourite of the night. She blew me away, not only with her iconic, fierce walk, but also her Alexander McQueen gold metal-embroidered dress with a flowing shimmering train. With a gold leaf hair accessory she completed her look with Alexander McQueen wedges.
Georgia May Jagger, the youngest of the troop, wore a Victoria Beckham gold-metal cocktail dress with Giuseppe Zanotti heels.
Jourdan Dunn stood head and shoulders above everyone else, mostly due to her fabulous Stephen Jones gold-feather headdress, worn with a Jonathan Saunders gold-and-white leather dress.
For the ladies, David Gandy provided the eye candy wearing a gold Paul Smith suit.
The models’ three-minute portion of this ceremony hasn’t been met with great reviews. Some have asked what the point of it was while others have stated that some of the supers aren’t the best role models.
My question is where was Rosie Huntington-Whiteley?
