Stella McCartney is all the rage in the Olympic Village!

British rower, Pete Reed, recently spoke up about how everyone is totally jelly of the teams’ kits, saying:

”Everyone wants it. Everyone in the Olympic Village wants to trade with us. Lots of other nations look so plain and flat. Our kit is really something to be proud of. I was one of the guys who loved it straight away - it's had a hard time because of the lack of red, but when you look around the village, there really is a lot of that. When we get together as a team, we really stand out.”

We have to agree that Reed and crew looked AH-MAY-ZING as they row, row, rowed their boat to the gold medal podium!

What do U think? Are Stella's designs are the best in the games?

Tom Daley's Speedo Gave Stella McCartney Problems

Words can't express how jelly we are of Stella McCartney right now.

The British designer was in charge of creating the 26 uniforms for Team GB Olympians, and despite her years of experience, it was diving stud muffin Tom Daley's "little thing" of a Speedo that gave her the most problems.

Stella told the BBC:

"There wasn’t a lot of space to work on to apply the print!”

And she's complaining about this why!?

It's because of his little thing that we have a new-found appreciation of diving!

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.

Check out some more pictures of the designs (below) and tell us what U think!
