On the heels of the London Olympics closing ceremony “Team Supermodel,” Russian beauty Natalia Vodianova will run the final 130 meters of the Paralympic torch relay later this afternoon. The event, which takes place along London’s Surrey Docks, kicks off Vodianova’s role as ambassador of the Sochi Winter Games in 2014 which will take place in her home country of Russia. In light of the event, Vodianova took to Facebook earlier in the day, writing: “As an ambassador of Sochi-2014, I am focusing my efforts to raise awareness specifically towards Paralympic Games. I am delighted that in London this year Paralympians are the center of Media and public attention. They are my new role models of strength, determination, and Olympic spirit.”

Gabby Douglas’ hair makes headlines again: the gold-medal winner got a $1000 haircut from celeb stylist Ted Gibson
Since Gabby Douglas made Olympic history as the first African-American and the third U.S. gymnast ever to win the all-around gold, her hair has also been making headlines. While we still don’t understand why viewers took to social media to call out the pint-sized 16-year-old for having unkempt hair (her bun looked just as slick as her teammates’ updos!) today the story gets a little better: Douglas got a gold medal-worthy haircut from celebrity stylist Ted Gibson.

Kate Middleton sings along to Monty Python while recycling another look at the Olympic closing ceremony
Amidst the excitement of The Spice Girls reunion and the gold-on-gold (on gold) Brit model spectacular at last night’s Olympic closing ceremonies in London, our eyes, as usual, were firmly planted on dear Duchess of Cambridge. Attending alongside Prince Harry to represent the Royal Family, Kate spent the evening in typically good-natured form singing along to the many famed Brit tunes by George Michael, Take That, One Direction and even Eric Idle of Monty Python. In similarly typical form, Kate dropped the Team GB polo she sported mid-games and opted for another old faithful: the dotted-blue Whistles “Bella” dress she wore earlier this summer to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert. It was lucky for us to get a second look given that we never got a good look at the concert, and y’all know how important those are to us! As for the rest of the ensemble, Kate carried her Anya Hindmarch “Maud clutch” which bears a custom embroidered “C” for Catherine and wore the custom Kiki McDonough diamond and topaz earrings she’s been spotted with all summer long.
