BEST PART BEST PART of the Olympic 2012 Closing Ceremony

So you all caught the best moment of the closing ceremony last night right? The part when Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Lily Cole, Karen Elson, Lily Donaldson, Georgia May Jagger, Stella Tennant, Jourdan Dunn and David Gandy exploded out of 8 black trucks and blew out an air of cool across the whole stadium? If you don't know what I'm talking about then we can never be friends. It was glorious. It was a moment that reinforces the fact fashion really does it for me and I'm doing the right thing by aiming to be a part of the industry. It was also a moment that made me insanely proud to be British and showed that we might be a kinda tiny part of the globe, but we can fucking own it not only in the sporting field (you were all kinds of amazing Team GB) but in the fashion world too.

Let's have a look at the British hotness draped in the hottest British threads.

We'll start with Kate cause well, it's Kate.

She wore a sequined, floor length Alexander McQueen dress and Alexander McQueen wedges. LOVE. Although that's no surprise as it is McQueen and he could never do any wrong in my fashion books and nor can Sarah now.

Lily Donaldson shone in a Vivienne Westwood dress paired with Sergio Rossi heels. Very classic Westwood and not very risky but I think it's worked well as a representation of the fashion house through the Olympic ceremony.

Karen Elson represented Burberry in a dazzling high low style gold dress paired with Jimmy Choos and Butler & Wilson earrings and bracelets. Stunning, and those legs turn me green!

Georgia May Jagger wore a (slightly controversial) Victoria Beckham dress, accessorised with amazing Giuseppe Zanotti heels, a Stella McCartney belt and Ca and Lou earrings. I get why some people are a bit pissy that Vicky B has been placed alongside some of fashions greats and I'm in no doubt that she got to the position she's in a LOT easier than others would have but fuck it, she was a spice girl, she's chic, she's British and I reckon she puts a lot of effort into her clothing line.

Stella Tennant was dressed by Christopher Kane in a Swarovski Crystal trouser suit paired with Christian Louboutin boots. So androgynous. So fitting to the David Bowie intro.

Lily Cole looked the quintessential English Rose in a beautiful Erdem dress and Charlotte Olympia heels. I want to wear this and run through a poppy field!

Jourdan Punn was accompanied by David Gandy (LUCKY) wearing a Jonathan Saunders dress and a Stephen Jones gold feather headdress. Perhaps the most beautiful man on earth wore a Paul Smith suit and tie. If I dye my hair blonde and join the Saturdays will you give me a chance Dave?

And now, I saved the best for last!

Naomi Campbell looked FUCKING AMAZING in a meticulously embellished Alexander McQueen dress with a train like gold dust that flowed behind her as she strutted down the runway. Her curved wedges were of course also McQueen. Absolutely breathtaking, I couldn't wait to watch her entrance over again as soon as I saw it. Sarah Burton has truly proved herself in the last few years and I'm sure Lee would be proud!

And if you noticed that font on the photoshoot images looked familiar, it's because they are images from the September 2012 issue of British Vogue. The September issue is always a must but this one is a mega must as the Olympic 2012 input will be sure to make it an iconic issue. Grab it now before they run out!

Pssst, it looks like this:
