The past two weeks have been possibly the best that London and Britain have ever seen. There is so much British Pride in the air right now it is slightly overwhelming. In honour of the amazing spectacle that was the London 2012 Olympic Games, here is my compilation of some of the best (looking) bits.
Top 5 Olympic Hunks
Tom Daley – British Diver and Olympic Medallist
Camille Lacourt – French Swimmer
Louis Smith – British Gymnast and Olympic Medallist
Ryan Bailey – American Sprinter and Olympic Medallist
Steve Lewis – British Pole Vaulter
Best Opening Ceremony Outfit
Mexico take the gold in this category due to their fun and colourful representation of their country and culture. They stand out from all the other countries and really make an entrance. Good work, Mexico!
Best Olympic Hair
There’s no competition, American sprinter Sanya Richards-Ross wins hands down for her beautifully flowing locks.
US high jumper Erik Kynard wins this category for his patriotic socks.
Most Fashionable Event
Who knew that synchronised swimmers were so fashion-conscious? Spain and Canada wowed with their costumes which looked as though they were inspired by Gareth Pugh and Meadham Kirchhoff respectively. We can even forgive the awful make up as their outfits were so unexpectedly amazing.

Best Fashlympic Moment
The Fashion World wept with joy last night as 9 British models showcased the creations of 8 of Britain’s most celebrated designers last night. Each piece was specially created for the September Issue of British Vogue and was then showcased again at the closing ceremony.
L-R: Lily Cole in Erdem, Stella Tennant in Christopher Kane, Karen Elson in Burberry, Kate Moss in Alexander McQueen, Lily Donaldson in Vivienne Westwood, Naomi Campbell in Alexander McQueen, Georgia-May Jagger in Victoria Beckham and Jourdan Dunn in Jonathan Saunders and Stephen Jones
David Gandy in Paul Smith, with Jourdan Dunn
There is no doubt that Team GB had the best kit of the games. Stella McCartney did a stellar job as always and made British Olympians the envy of all. The US came a close second though with their athletic kit.
London 2012, you exceeded all expectations and did us all proud.
