London 2012 Olympic Moments: Style Highlights of the Teams at the Opening Ceremony – Which is your Best Dressed Team?



Teams from the over 200 countries participating in the London 2012 Olympic Games did not disappoint with their brilliant display of colours, style and culture at the event’s opening ceremony last night. From traditional African attires, to vintage European costumes, to stylish Carribean attires, participants from across seven continents brought an interesting mix to the sports ground.
