Rio Olympic's Games x Meets Fashion

It seems like ages ago now but on the 5th August 2016, the curtain opened for the Olympic Games in the city Rio de Janeiro, South America. What a great month it has been!

Here are some of the best (and worst) looks from the Rio Olympics 2016!

Izabel Goulart's Carnival look

Best known as one of Victoria Secret's many angels, the super sexy Brazilian model strutted her stuff going full carnival during the opening ceremony.

Julia Michael's jumpsuit

This talented American singer and songwriter who has collaborated with major artists such a Selena Gomez, Justin Beiber, Demi Lovato, Kygo, Britney Spears, Zedd, Jason Derulo, Kelly Clarkson. The singer wore a full-body green jumpsuit to the closing ceremony. It looked really uncomfortable and was sparkly enough to be seen from space but it was the perfect colour to wear to match Brazil's flag.

Cuba's custom Christian Louboutin outfits

Christian Louboutin, best known for his sky high, red soled heels, surprised everyone when he teamed up with the former French handball player Henry Tai to design outfits for the Cuban Olympic team. He created custom looks with the help from the athletes themselves. Sadly, these won't be available for sale unlike the Olympic looks from Ralph Lauren.

Great Britain's light up trainers

Remember those days we used to wear light up trainers? I'm sure most of you did. Were they not the best days? Well, thanks to designer Simon Jersey who brought them back for the Rio Olympics. They are not only the colours of the Great Britain flag but they are also inspired by Rio's love for carnivals and parties.
