Olympics Will Open with 9 Geese, Close with Kate Moss
Anyone concerned that the upcoming Olympics would focus too much on sports and not enough on haute couture fashion can breathe a sigh of relief – the roster of performers for the closing ceremony was revealed Monday, and Kate Moss is prominently featured.
Moss, along with fellow supermodel Naomi Campbell and less-supermodels Lily Cole and Georgia May Jagger, is set to walk around wearing many a clothe in a stunning tribute to British design as part of the festivities.
The Hollywood Reporter snips that internationally famous Victoria's Secret
supermodel actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was set to take part in the event as well, "but it seems she now wants to be seen as an actress, so she withdrew."
The sartorial salute is but one element of the grand closing event, which organizers have titled A Symphony of British Music. Really, they should have called it A Big Gay Symphony of British Music, because check out this lineup: Elton John, Annie Lennox, George Michael, Pet Shop Boys, Take That, and Adele.
Vice-President of Britain Russell Brand will perform a comedy song as part of the symphony.
270 children in costume will recreate the River Thames.
ElleUK reports that the models will sport outfits designed by Vivienne Westwood, Stella McCartney (whose dad, Paul, will reportedly also be at the ceremony singing songs – DAD STOP YOU'RE EMBARRASSING ME), and Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. They'll be walking rhythmically but not too rhythmically to the songs "Fashion" and "Rebel Rebel" by David Bowie.
For the appearance, the supermodels will receive the standard Olympic payment of £1, which they will use to snort cocaine off a Brazilian swimmer's abs at the sexy afterparty to follow.
It was previously reported that the London Games' opening ceremony would include nine geese.
