Tonight the much anticipated 2014 Winter Olympics will be kicking off in Sochi, Russia. Meanwhile, there’s been quite a bit of drama leading up to the world event. From security issues to Russia’s stance on homosexuality prompting talks of a boycott to Sochi not being ready for the event and now the news that cyber hackers are attacking anyone who dares to use the internet while visiting Sochi.
Drama that was noticeably absent from this Year’s Olympics? US Opening Ceremony uniforms were not made in China this go around. Ralph Lauren’s 2012 Summer Olympic Opening Ceremony uniforms were heavily criticized for being manufactured in China. This time, the designer had another chance to redeem himself. But did he?
We conducted a Winter Olympic’s BuzzPoll and decided to gauge reactions about the designer duds that will be worn during tonight’s Opening Ceremony in Sochi. Almost half (46%) of all respondents said “Looks like ugly Xmas sweaters are still trending.” Scroll down to see what others said and stay tuned as we’ll be blogging and tweeting more findings from our Winter Olympics BuzzPoll.
