The Best Outfits And The Biggest Stars At The 2016 Olympic Opening Ceremony

There was more than the U.S. uniform controversy.

Some of this controversy has focused on Team USA’s parade uniforms, designed by Polo Ralph Lauren, which total a whopping price tag of $1,512.50). As soon as the U.S. team’s parade uniforms were announced, the internet was quick to point out how parts of it resemble the stripes on the Russian flag.

But no one seemed worried about the controversy at the Opening Ceremony, instead celebrating their respective countries in style as they walked the Parade of Nations. Check out Canada’s blazing maple leaves, Croatia’s bold checkers, and Chile’s ... well, bold choice.
