International (Fashion) Affairs

Two weeks ago I kicked off my Olympic 2012 coverage by examining the controversy that was the American Opening Ceremony outfits. But that was just the tip of the iceberg my friends. We're not even through a whole week yet in London, and there have already been some very definite fashion DOS and DON'Ts. Judges?

DO be insanely cool like Usain Bolt and rock a military-inspired jacket while flashing that famous smile. Le sigh!

Judges Score: 9

DON'T wear a rhinestone grill to your medal ceremony. I don't care how patriotic you think you're being...that's just not necessary, nor is it particularly attractive. 

Judges Score: 3

DO be cute as a button in classic cardigans and full skirts ala the Denmark squad. And we all thank you for not looking like airline stewardesses.

Judges Score: 8.5
DON'T, and I mean for the love of God, don't wear scrunchies. For all the innovations we've had in the sport of gymnastics lately, can't we find something else to hold our hair back? A pretty ribbon perhaps?

Judges Score: 2

DO live in a country small enough to be clad entirely by Italian designer Salvatore Ferragamo. Sure, the women of San Marino look a little silly carrying handbags, but who cares? It's a freaking Ferragamo for crying out loud!

Judges Score: 9.5...a deduction was taken off because I'm jealous

and finally...

DON'T look like you were styled by Ugly Betty, mmmkay? Mexico deserves better. We all do.

Judges Score: DQ for burning my eyes out with this nonsense

So friends...what have been your highlights or dislikes of the Olympic fashion scene so far? Hit me up and let me know!

I disagree on the scrunchie thing. If they're good enough for Hilary Clinton, they're good enough for me!

You WOULD be the one who would defend the scrunchie movement.
