What I Won't Be Wearing: Olympic Style

I don't know about you, but I'm a "People Watcher."  So much so that if it was an Olympic sport, I'd be a gold medallist.  FACT.

The London 2012 Olympic Games have not disappointed in this respect.  First, there are always the jaw dropping team uniforms. 

Yeah, I wouldn't be smiling if I had to wear this. 
You think the Spanish designer who did this had a bit too much sangria when he designed this?

 Ahh yes, pink and blue always makes me think of Germany.

I'm sorry, but only the French can pull off a beret. 'Nuff said.

Then there are the spectators.   There's always somebody who's going to stand out of the crowd, and often not in the way they'd hoped.

Princess Anne.
Is she wearing one of Devo's energy domes? 

Funny thing was I liked this hat, and liked how it looked on Princess Anne. Something about it kept niggling at me, though.  Finally it hit me...

Did Princess Anne borrow one of Devo's energy domes?

And the winner is......

Boyd Martin shared this picture, taken by equine photographer Michael David Rogers of MDR Photo, on Facebook today. 

Kudos for excellent use of color coordination.  Otherwise, the mind reels.  I guess if there's a flag shortage during the medal cermonies they can always run these up the flagpole.


  1. The Spanish team looks like they should be saying "Let me snap into a SlimJim." LOL

  2. But did you see Edward Gal's ensemble for the jog today?!? EGAD! Not so good with the beating dressage is taking in the media right now for being an elitist, "foo-foo" sport...;D

    1. Lol! I sprayed wine all over my laptop when I went to find a picture. He really flew the Dutch colors, so to speak! LOL But I'd have to say Michal Rapcewicz from Poland was more entertaining -- looked like a pimp in bowling shoes.
