Wake Up Round Up: It’s All About The London Olympic Closing Ceremony!

Zomg! The Spice Girls comeback at last night's Olympics Closing Ceremony was AWESOME. [Gawker]

“…we pretty much died when Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Stella Tennant, Karen Elson and other Brit models appeared on floats in show-stopping custom ensembles, in what may have been the most sense-making part of the whole event.” [Fashionista]

“Such feel-good scenes have been replayed on a seemingly endless loop around the Olympics' host city over the last couple of weeks, as Londoners seem to have forgotten that they spent the past seven years expecting the games to be a disruptive nightmare. Instead, London and its Olympic organizers, known as Locog, are winning strong reviews for a smooth running, well-executed 17-day event that avoided all of the feared problems: major security incidents, transportation meltdowns, apocalyptic (in other words, normal) British summer weather.” [WSJ]
