The Olympics start this Friday, and one of the best parts of any Olympics (besides ogling the male divers–admit that you do this) is getting to know the athletes and learning their stories as they progress through the games. We already met the women’s gymnastics team (and their makeup), now it’s on to all the rest. And while we’re very interested in their, you know, athletic accomplishments, we also want to know–where do they shop? Which designers do they love? We got the exclusive scoop from NBC (who’s airing the Olympics in the US), who also provided us with amazing pictures of the athletes dressed to the nines in their own clothes.
While understandably a lot of the athletes named Nike and Lululemon as their favorite fashion brands–we get it, they spend every waking moment in the gym–there are plenty of secret fashion fiends (including one ex-model!) in this crowd. While the teens generally stuck to fast fashion, one rogue cyclist loves Stella McCartney, and Louis Vuitton popped up more than once as a fave.
So click through to see 26 members of Team USA like you’ve never seen them before and learn a little bit about them and their style. And definitely check out NBCOlympics.com and TeamUSA.org to follow them all the way through the Olympics.
