Parade of Nations, Runway Edition

14 Feb

Last night was the opening ceremony for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. Like every opening ceremony, there was a parade of nations, where each country’s competing olympians walks with their flags through the auditorium. This year the U.S. team’s outfits for the parade of nations were designed by Ralph Lauren. I’m always interested to see what each country chooses to walk the aisle in.

Below, I’ve chosen my top 5:

Bermuda, chose to walk proudly & bravely into the cold wearing their Bermuda shorts

Ethiopia, looking fine in the colors of their flag, sent one hopeful Cross Country Skier to this year's winter olympics

Austria, I love that they chose these navy blazers with gold accents

Ireland, did not shy away from green, in their citron-toned track pants

Monaco, ever luxurious, cracked me up in their argyle sweaters & matching ivory scarves
