2021 Olympians with Great Style

The 2021 Olympics are a few weeks away. The world will witness the biggest world event since the COVID-19 shutdown. Of course, there is drama and a lot of media during and after the Olympics, so Fashion Reverie has curated a list of Olympic style stars from the upcoming Olympics. 

With new sports added to the Tokyo Olympics, this the start of what should be a groundbreaking Olympic Games for women athletes. Meet a few of the women athletes who have great style that Fashion Reverie is excited to watch in the Tokyo Olympics!!

Dalilah Muhammad, Track and Field (USA)

She broke the 400-meter hurdles world record twice: once at the 2019 USA Track and Field (USATF) National Championships and then later that same year at the World Championships. Going to Tokyo as the defending Olympic champion Dalilah will probably bring some cute outfits. According to her Instagram, she seems to keep it simple but experiments with fun accessories.

Leticia Bufoni, Skateboarding (Brazil)

Leticia is getting attention as a favorite skateboarder and holds a record five X Games gold medals in street skateboarding, ranking fourth in the world. This sport requires a certain style and she keeps it sporty and street-style hip, proudly showing off her arm tattoos.

Kate Courtney, Cross-country Mountain Biking (USA)

In 2019, Kate Courtney became the first American in 17 years to win the overall World Cup in cross-country mountain biking. Biking outfits can be stylish, and some folks wear biking outfits even if they hardly know how to ride a bike. Kate keeps her gear on most of the time, but occasionally shows up at a black-tie event. She usually wears simple, but young and flirty dresses, like the dresses she wore at New York City events a few years ago.

Jordan Chiles, Gymnastics (USA)

Jordan has already gone viral for some of her incredible floor routines to music from “Wonder Woman” and “Spider Man,” so naturally we can’t wait to see how she does in Tokyo. Gymnastic uniforms are beautiful on their own, but Jordan loves wearing stylish clothes and bright colors even when not competing.

Sydney McLaughlin, Track and Field (USA)

At the 2019 World Championships, she finished second with a personal best time, the third fastest in history, directly completing with Dalilah Muhammad. McLaughlin will be at the Tokyo Olympics, so we might see another close call between these two. Getting a cover of L’Officiel is not not easy and Fashion Reverie chose to share McLaughlin a long black dress from the photoshoot. Thank you L’Officiel for giving us this pleasure.

Naomi Osaka, Tennis (Japan)

Naomi Osaka renounced her American citizenship in 2019 which allows her to compete for Japan in the 2021Olympics. She was a dual US-Japanese citizen and under Japan’s Nationality Law she had to choose one before she turned 22. It’ll be her first Olympic Games, and she’ll be playing in her home country. She could be the first Japanese woman to take home an Olympic medal in tennis. She has been collaborating with quite a few important brands, but our favorite is her ambassadorship with Louis Vuitton. Bold color and print mini dress fit Naomi Osaka perfectly simply perfect.

Dafne Schippers, Track and Field (The Netherlands)

As the fourth fastest woman in the world in the 200-meter dash, this Dutch 2016 Olympic silver medalist also knows how to heat up a red carpet. Schippers is also the 2015 and 2017 world champion in the 200 meters.

At 5` 10, Schippers looks absolutely gorgeous in a bedazzled red-carpet gown. She was also the 2020 ambassador for Toyota.

Vashti Cunningham, Track and Field (USA)

If you are not familiar with this Amazonian beauty—Vashti towers at 6`1—then you may know her famous father Randall Cunningham, former quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and Vashti’s mother, Felicity de Jager, former ballerina for the Dance Theatre of Harlem. As the Queen of the High Jump, Vashti has the athletic power and beauty to sail over all of her competitors in the high jump at the Tokyo Olympics. (She probably gets that great leaping ability from her ballerina mom who was famous for her jetes as Myrtha, the Queen of the Wilis in “Giselle.”)

Vashti is no stranger to fashion. “There are a lot of designers that get me excited,” Vashti gushed. “Junya Watanabe, Rick Ownes, Virgil Abloh, Yoon Ambush.” … “The designer of the shag sweater-coat, Jean-Paul Gaultier, is known for pushing the boundaries of what is and isn’t fashion.”

Simone Biles, Gymnastics (USA)

This list would not be complete without the greatest of all times (GOAT) gymnastic Simone Biles. Biles currently holds the record for most World Championship and Olympic medals combined (30 medals) and the most consecutive US Gymnastics Championships (7).

The current women’s all-around of Olympic gymnastic champion from the 2016 Rio Olympics, Biles is a sure bet to win the all-around at the Tokyo Olympics. Biles is expected to accumulate no less than four gold medals in Tokyo.

Biles loves fashion as well, proven by her June 2021 cover story in Glamour. Photographed by Kennedi Carter, Biles donned a David Koma with a Schiaparelli necklace. All this was done in patriotic red, white, and blue.
