Sure, athletes can get away with a lack of style. But "all spandex all the time" can only take one so far in the eyes of the fashion gods. So, let's give praise where praise is due to those Olympians who look just as fabulous, if not more so, out of their spandex.

The Most Stylish Olympians Of London 2012 Slideshow


Helge Meeuw

Maybe you haven't heard of Meeuw, but he's been called the "Ryan Gosling of the German swim team."


Allyson Felix

The U.S. track star could easily have a second career as a model, and not just because of her good looks. On the red carpet, she carries herself with style and grace.


Daniela Hantuchova

The Slovakian tennis player wowed everyone in ESPN's Body Issue. But when she's not posing in her birthday suit or her tennis skirt, she looks like she could have stepped right out of Vogue.


Ryk Neethling

From a swimsuit to a pinstripe suit, the South African swimmer can rock it all, while also managing to look like a hybrid of Matt Damon and James Marsden.


Giuseppe Lanzone

Representing Team USA, this rower knows you can't go wrong with jeans, a crisp white shirt and a blazer.


Hope Solo

Is there any list Solo can't make? Her style off the field has just the right mix of relaxed, yet put together. Hollywood starlets, take note.


Clemente Russo

When it comes to dressing up, it's gloves off for this Italian boxer. Mama mia.


Cullen Jones

No, you probably shouldn't attempt a shocking red biker jacket. But the U.S. swimmer can, anytime.


Teddy Riner

It would be a sin to compile a "most stylish" list without a Frenchman, and the judo athlete just oozes confidence. At 6-foot-8, wouldn't you?


Maria Sharapova

All eyes are on the Russian sensation as she prepares for her first Olympic appearance. Even if she doesn't get the gold, she'll continue shining on the red carpet. She also boasts her own line of Cole Haan heels. Sky high, of course.


Roger Federer

When you pal around with Vogue editor Anna Wintour, you'd better be dressed to the nines. And he is.
