Shop It Out: The 2012 Olympics Closing Ceremony
Last night, the Olympics drew to an end with an all-singing, all-dancing, pyrotechnic-punctuated closing ceremony that appealed to the '90s children in all of us. There were performances by Oasis' Liam Gallagher, George Michael, Annie Lennox, Muse and Fatboy Slim—the latter accompanied by an awesome She's All That-esque dance number. Tied for our personal favorite moment of the broadcast, however, was a long-awaited reunion performance by The Spice Girls and a walk-off courtesy of Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Karen Elson and a bevy of other UK-bred supermodels.
Click through to see our favorite looks from last night's closing ceremony, as well as shoppable options to help you spice up your own lives (er, wardrobes). Warning: those averse to metallic, sequins, crystals and studs need not apply. London wanted to go out with a bang here, and the performers' attire was suitably dramatic.
Victoria Beckham looked totally posh in this asymmetrical Giles Deacon look.
Oh, Baby! Emma Bunton picked pink—in the form of this Maggie Cooke minidress.
Would we have loved to see Geri Halliwell—aka Ginger Spice—slip into her old Union Jack dress? Of course. Still, with its UK flag-accented skirt, this Suzanne Neville look fit the bill. Props on those customized Isabel Marant booties, too.
Melanie Brown always had awesome pipes, and slipping back into Scary Spice mode, she certainly put them to good use last night. The bedazzled bodysuit's a little Britney for our taste, but hey—the lady wanted to put on a show.
Ever the most laid-back member of the group, Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice) picked a custom-designed white jumpsuit by JD Sports—appropriate, no?
She's arguably the most famous supermodel of all time, and Kate Moss looked like a golden goddess in this shimmering Alexander McQueen.
The lovely Lily Cole picked this lacy Erdem dress, which she teamed with towering Charlotte Olympia pumps.
It doesn't get much better than Jourdan Dunn in a feathery, gilded Stephen Jones headdress—and we loved her two-tone leather Jonathan Saunders gown, too. Meanwhile, Stella Tennant (far right) shone in her Christopher Kane crystal-embellished pantsuit.
Naomi Campbell got into the spirit of the Games with her golden, leaf-accented tiara—and her heavily embellished Alexander McQueen look was gold medal-worthy for sure.
Lily Donaldson stood out in this Vivienne Westwood Gold Label gown, with its beautiful Elizabethan-era silhouette.
Not many men would dare to wear a head-to-toe sequined suit PLUS metallic sneakers—but Muse's Matthew Bellamy pulled off the busy look beautifully. Wonder if his lady love, Kate Hudson, was cheering him on backstage...
