Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Georgia May Jagger will all walk at the 2012 London Olympics Closing Ceremony.
Supermodels at the Olympics? What will they think of next? What was at first just a rumor has now been confirmed: an all star cast of British models will be taking to a specially designed catwalk as a part of the 2012 London Olympics Closing Ceremony, which is titled “A Symphony of British Music.” The blowout celebration, which will also include performances from Adele, Queen, One Direction and George Michael, will showcase designers Vivienne Westwood and Alexandre McQueen. Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Georgia May Jagger will be joined on the runway by Stella Tennant, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Lily Cole. Everyone appearing at the event is reportedly doing it purely for love of country–spokespeople for the Olympics say that the fee for each performer is a single pound, or, in US dollars, approximately $1.55.
The models will take to the catwalk to David Bowie’s “Fashion” and “Rebel Rebel.” Dare we hope that the iconic star will perform said songs live? Oh we dare. Other English stars set to appear are Russell Brand, Sir Paul McCartney and Sir Elton John, but spokespeople for the event say that the lineup is subject to change because they want it to “be a surprise.”
