Stella McCartney Debuts Official Team GB Olympic Uniforms

test-ap-post-picture.jpg

Stella McCartney had the honor of unveiling the Team GB uniforms for the 2012 London Olympics on Thursday.

For the collaboration with Adidas, Stella was inspired by the iconic image of the Union Jack flag.

She explained:

"I know I'm biased, but it really is one of the most iconic flags. I was also aware of the fact that it's something that might be overused in the build-up to the Olympics, in taxis, on cushions and mugs, so I wanted to do something different with it - but that was still respectful of its beauty. Actually, the colours of the Union Jack are similar to a lot of other flags and the athletes really wanted to feel identifiable as Team GB, so I just used different colours to say the same thing."

Two years in the making, the long awaited collection features sequined variations, covered leotards, and printed versions for T-shirts and jackets.

Nicely done.

Military Father Burns New Jersey Flag In Protest Of Governor Chris Christie Half Mast Tribute To Whitney Houston

Filed under: PolitikWhitney HoustonSad Sad

A Michigan father of a fallen soldier is NOT a fan of New Jersey governor Chris Christie.

The governor ordered all flags to be flown half-staff for Whitney Houston and John Burri protested his disagreement in a big way.

Burri burned New Jersey's state flag, caliing his protest "a little drastic" but he believed the right should be reserved for soldiers. His son was killed in Iraq and he called Christie's gesture a "slap in the face."

Check out the video (above) for the full story.

A little drastic?! Yeah, perhaps. He is entitled to his opinion, but maybe he shouldn't have taken things this far.

What do U think?
