Is it bad that the most exciting thing about the Olympics was the end? and not only because of the Spice Girls but for the excess of fashion that featured in the entire ceremony. Especially the British supermodels catwalking simultaneously in gold like a new fashion Britannia.
Lucinda Chambers was responsible for the styling and she put her Vogue touch on Lily Cole (in a leaf brocade and lace by Erdem), Karen Elson (in Burberry), Lily Donaldson (in a sequinned corseted gown by Vivienne Westwood) and Georgia May Jagger (in Victoria Beckham). Jourdan Dunn was wearing a Stephen Jones headdress and dress by Jonathan Saunders. Stella Tennant in a trouser-suit by Christopher Kane. David Gandy in a rather dissapointing gold, almost lurex, suit by Paul Smith. Kate Moss and Naomi Cambpell in Sarah Burton for Alexander Mcqueen, stolen the show and both looked flawless.
I must also point out that i nearly freaked out when the Pet shop boys came out in origami chariots wearing Gareth Pugh.
The black lace tail dress by Giles Deacon that Victoria wore, looked amassing in motion but i was disappointed it did not film well, the long shots did not do it any justice. The rest of the spice girls should have asked for some help from Lucinda, embarrassing does not cover it, but we always love your fashion vulgarity from the very beginning.
Now the Olympics its so like yesterday we can all move on and nurture those Olympic blues.
