Sunday marks the closing of the 2012 Summer Games. By now, the major events have all been won and lost, but the question left hanging in the air: who takes the fashion gold?

While they may not have scored medals, they're winners in our eyes. So here is a very OC tribute to our favorite pieces—but the competition isn't over until the Spice Girls have sung.
