US track star Sanya Richards-Ross took home the gold in the women’s 400 meter yesterday in London. Proving to be one of the most stylish athletes to hit the podium in these Olympic games, Richards-Ross paired her gold medal with some gold Chanel earrings. She went with a pair of classic double-C logo studs rather than a more sparkly pair from Chanel’s current joaillerie collection–a good choice as those gold CC’s match her gold medal perfectly.
And she didn’t skimp on her hair and nail art either. Check out that side french braid and those patriotic tips. Track and field athletes have never shied from expressing their personal style on the field (see: Flo Jo, the original nail artist) and we can’t wait to see more.
Karl Lagerfeld reportedly said some nasty shit recently about Pippa Middleton being a butterface so we’re hoping the Kaiser approves of Richards-Ross and her Chanel love.
