Are Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell to appear in the Olympics Closing Ceremony?
Word on the grapevine is that Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell are set to unite for a special appearance at the London Olympics Closing Ceremony. Rumours claim that they will be joined by David Gandy, Stella Tennant, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Jourdan Dunn in a special supermodel segment during the Olympics spectacular on August 12.
According to reports, the models will wear designs from some of Britain's most iconic designers in a bid to represent the country's fashion industry. They will apparently strut their stuff in pieces from Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen as London says farewell to athletes from all over the world.
While the official Olympics Committee is yet to confirm or deny the whispers, what is known is that the Closing Ceremony will feature 4,100 performers and will be broadcast live at 9.00pm (UK time). Directed by Kim Gavin, who has designed Take That's recent arena tours, the event is expected to be full of music references in a fitting tribute to one of Britain's biggest cultural exports - music. Titled 'A Symphony of British Music' the ceremony will be a celebration of artists and songs that have entertained the world over the past 50 years.
"Organisers wanted the best of British - and that's exactly what they've got. The models were all keen to take part because it will be such a memorable event," a source told the Mirror. "British style is known around the world for innovation and creativity, so it's right that it will be celebrated as part of the show - it will look amazing."
Of course they won't be the first models to take to the stage at an Olympics Closing Ceremony. At the Sydney Olympics in 2000, Elle Mapherson appeared on a giant camera-shaped float which circled Stadium Australia. She was featured as one of the country's biggest icons alongside Kylie Minogue and Paul Hogan, a.k.a. Crocodile Dundee. Take it from me, you can't get more Aussie than that!
