2012 OLYMPICS: OPENING CEREMONY FASHION BRONZE MEDAL
And the winner is…Cameroon! Bold colors and patterns, wide sleeves, hats…gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!
So many of the nations’ teams looked like they were on their way to: A) barbershop quartet practice, B) third shift working the desk at Enterprise Rent-a-Car (*cough*Switzerland*cough), or C) Gate 25 at Newark Airport for the LA red-eye…and I mean working, not as a passenger! There was a shocking number of flight attendant looks, with a couple of pilots (Belgium, I’m looking at you) sprinkled in for good measure.
Cameroon, thankfully, couldn’t be bothered with western styles. Would you if your nation’s traditional attire was so beautiful?
Props to all who kept it real, including India, Senegal and Nigeria. You guys ROCK!
