Fashion at the Olympics

From the New York Times, take a look at this cool slideshow, which also has a running commentary, (no embed code available, sorry) depicting various contingents marching at the Olympics Opening Ceremony last Friday, and their relationship with fashion. Did you know that Canadian sportswear company Roots sponsored the US Olympic team in 2002, and this year it was Ralph Lauren? The outfits were inspired, ostensibly, by the 1981 classic movie Chariots of Fire. Australia even had the influence of Prada in theirs!
