It’s been the most amazing two weeks of Olympics–our women’s gymnastics team took gold, Michael Phelps became the most decorated Olympian in history…and Ryan Lochte wore a grill on the medal stand. No matter what you think of him, that upped the ante–suddenly we were noticing athlete flair everywhere.
We already know that nail art took the athletes’ village by storm, but that wasn’t the only way the athletes expressed some individuality this year. They can’t really use their clothes to express themselves, so that’s where makeup, jewelry and, yes teeth adornment, comes in. From signature hair styles to bejeweled face painting, Olympians were not afraid to let their
freak flags fly. And we loved them for it.
