A word about our own American outfits: Putting the "not Made in America" snafu aside, the overall look is very Ralph Lauren. Clean, fresh and classic. When you look at the details, I'm not so sure it was an A+. The length of the skirt could have been much more contemporary, and the berets were all over the place. I am no beret expert, but I felt the placement was all wrong on most of the Olympians. I do appreciate a good beret. In general, I love that most teams have their Olympians wearing hats of some sort.
The outstanding moment of the Opening Ceremonies was the final 'lighting' of the Olympic Torch. Spectacular.
