Squad goals! Michael Phelps and the US Athletes looked SO classy for the Opening Ceremony at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Wearing patriotic colors with a sophisticated flare, we couldn’t keep our eyes off them! See the pics of their spiffy attire, right here!
Looking good, Michael Phelps! The 31-year-old star led the American team with style at the Maracanã Stadium on Aug. 5. Donning a Ralph Lauren designed uniform with red, white and blue stripes, the superstar athletes looked straight out of the Hamptons! Each of the athletes was rocking a striped shirt, sharp navy jacket with gold buttons, slick white pants and tri-color boat shoes. Tres chic! No Cable TV? Relax!

Since he was the one carrying the giant American flag, Michael got something a little extra special. For the first time, the team at Ralph Lauren managed to work lighting panels into Michael’s clothes, so that when he walked through the stadium, everyone could see “U.S.A” proudly written across his back and glowing! Sooo cool.
The team seemed to be in high spirits and having a blast as they entered the giant cheering stadium. Michael was wearing a massive grin across his face, and gymnast Simone Biles and sprinter Allyson Felix were seen snapping away a few selfies as they walked through the arena, and wrestler Jordan Burroughs and Serena Williams posed for some pics too. We can’t blame them – how could you not want photographic evidence of the coolest moment of your life?!
We love how classy Team USA’s uniforms were. A lot of teams went for an over-the-top costume with bright colors, or gimmicky props, but we really think that the American athletes picked a look that really represents our country – they’re classy AND fun! Great job, Ralph Lauren!
