Team USA Opening Ceremony Uniforms: All the Details!
For Team USA's grand entrance to the 2012 London Olympics, they'll be decked out in an all-American brand: Ralph Lauren Blue Label.
Similar to the getups from the 2008 Beijing Olympics, athletes like Michael Phelps, Lolo Jones, Gabby Douglas and Ryan Lochte will be sporting the red, white and blue military-inspired garb.
The women will dress in a white cotton blouse paired with a knee-length cream skirt while the men will wear a matching white shirt with cream-colored trousers. Both ensembles will be topped off with a sharply tailored double-breasted wool blazer with peak lapels featuring the official U.S. Olympic Games patch and embroidered Big Pony logo at the chest and a navy beret striped with red and white. Gals will accessorize with a chic striped neck scarf and the men will work complementing ties.
"The uniforms were inspired by the spirit of American athleticism and sportsmanship, including the 1948 Olympic Games in London," the brand says in a press release. "Vintage inspired, but modern in design and sophistication."
