Her sporting credentials extend to walking her dog in the country and practising yoga, but Kate Moss has got into the Olympic spirit in the latest issue of Vogue.

The 38-year-old supermodel poses in the pages of the monthly style bible in a gold encrusted, bias-cut gown conceived by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen to celebrate the London 2012 Closing Ceremony.

In collaboration with the British Fashion Council, Vogue commissioned visionary photographer Nick Knight to capture Moss and fellow top British models wearing unique designs by the country's top design talent.

Fellow supermodel, Naomi Campbell, also sports McQueen in the shoot, while aristocratic beauty Stella Tennant can be seen in Christopher Kane. Lily Cole wears Erdem, while Burberry favourite Jourdan Dunn dons Jonathan Saunders. Gap-toothed Georgia May Jagger has been outfitted in Victoria Beckham while man-of-the-moment David Gandy wears Paul Smith.

With rumours abounding that Vogue's line-up of models will star in the actual London 2012 Closing Ceremony, is this a teaser of the frocks that are to grace Stratford's Olympic Stadium? However one thing is for sure: with top Brazilian model Alessanda Ambrosio in the house to participate in the handover of the Olympic Flag from London to Brazil, the host nation of the next Summer Olympic Games, tomorrow is set to be the most stylish date of the year.



Do you think an increase in JUTC bus fares is justified at this time?
