A Fashionable Ending Planned for the London Olympic Games

Supermodel Kate Moss is one of the British fashion elite scheduled to play a role in the closing ceremonies.

London—Even if you don’t have the least bit of interest in the sports, you’ll want to tune in (or set your DVRs) for the closing ceremony of the Summer Games at Olympic Stadium on Sunday, August 12.

Further substantiating rumors that the extravaganza will promote the best of Britain including fashion, expect to see the likes of Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Stella Tennant, Lily Colem, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Georgia May Jagger strut down a runway to David Bowie music. They will be wearing the best of British fashion designers including Stella McCartney, Burberry, Vivienne Westwood and Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.

The two-hour plus event will feature a wide range of music great including The Who, Annie Lennox, Madness, One Direction and the Pet Shop Boys.

“Organizers wanted the best of British–and that’s exactly what they’ve got,” a source told the Daily Mirror. “The models were all keen to take part because it will be such a memorable event. British style is known around the world for innovation and creativity, so it’s right that it will be celebrated as part of the show–it will look amazing.”

Kim Gavin, creative director, has called the closing festivities “an elegant mash-up of British music”—and now that includes fashion, too.
