Fashion designer Ralph Lauren unveiled the uniforms that Team USA will wear at the Opening Ceremonies at next month’s Olympics in Sochi on NBC’s Today show Thursday morning, and let’s just say the reaction to them was swift...and overly negative.
Models and hockey players Zach Parise and Julie Chu both look like they want to punch something for having to wear the equivalent of an ugly Christmas sweater.
According to Today: “The ensembles feature a classic color palette of red, white and navy. The Opening Ceremony look, revealed exclusively on TODAY Thursday, includes a knit patchwork cardigan emblazoned with stars ($598), paired with a cream cotton turtleneck sweater ($245), slim-fitting white fleece athletic pants bearing the “Team USA” label ($165), black leather boots with bright red laces ($395) and a cotton belt accented with American graphics ($75). Of course, there’s also a reindeer hat ($95).”
Yeesh. We apologize, free world.
