The first night of the Olympics is much more of a fashion show than an athletic event. 

Yes, the opening ceremony is a chance for the host nation to shine, but each delegation gets its moment in the spotlight during the Parade of Nations. Every country gets to march into the stadium waving its flag.

But the biggest choice each nation has to make is what to wear. Swipe through all the worst outfits in Olympic history below (right if you actually approve, left if they make you want to puke).

 

That’s just more proof that the 90s were the worst era in fashion history. 

Check back on Friday after the opening ceremony to vote on best and worst outfits from this year.
