GALLERY >> Olympics Chic

The Queen sky-diving! David Beckham in a speedboat! JK Rowling reading! The 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony has been a feast for the eyes, hasn't it? As well as the dancing, the singing and all that waving, the spectacle has given us the opportunity to coo over the outfits of some our favourite Brits. From Kate Middleton to Samantha Cameron, take a look through the gallery above for a fine example of Olympics chic...

Stella McCartney

The excellent designer of Team GB's kit, Ms McCartney, [a target="_blank" href="!/StellaMcCartney/media/slideshow?">tweeted[/a] this snap of herself getting into the spirit courtesy of a glitzy gold sports-luxe pant suit. Channelling C-3PO has never been cooler.

Kate Middleton

We're still thrilling at the sight of the Duchess wearing a Christopher Kane creation so although the more Middy outfits the merrier, we're not surprised she hasn't made a quick change from [a href="/fashion/archive/2012/07/27/is-kate-middleton-really-wearing-christopher-kane-to-meet-michelle-obama-at-olym.htm">the reception at Buckingham Palace [/a]earlier this evening.

Samantha Cameron

She's long been a fan of her creations so it's no surprise to see Sam Cam rocking a red and black top by Roksanda Ilincic this evening. The British Prime Minister’s wife picked the ensemble from the pre-fall 2012 collection, teaming it with a belt and sleek black trousers.

Princess Charlene

The Monaco royal chose a white lacy top and matching trousers for the occasion, worn with a white blazer. Very lady-like, too matchy-matchy?
