This is major. British Olympic gymnastics bronze medalist Louis Smith is the subject of the Observer Sport Monthly's fashion special. Photographer Levon Bliss captures the Olympic hotness in this spring's most vibrant styles and colors. Smith is absolutely amazing. Oh and it's also an opportunity to see the very handsome lad all dressed up, since we normally see him going shirtless or wearing trackies and lycra. Not that we're complaining.
Louis Smith is killing it in the Gucci suit and Burberry shirt. Tom Ford would definitely approve. And below the 19-year-old pommel hotness models Jil Sander, known for her minimalist style and neutral colors which are perfect for Smith. Those shoes are probably not regulation but hey ...
Smith was Great Britain's first individual Olympic medalist in 100 years and only the second black male gymnast to win an Olympic medal. OSM reports, "[Smith] hopes to one day invent his own move on the pommels, to see his very British surname alongside the Kehrswings and Tong Feis. "The Smith. Yeah, it would be pretty cool. Put my name on a lasting legacy and put it in the book of history. It would have to be unique, and very difficult."
This shot captures Louis Smith in mid-air and is our favorite. Those are the Gucci slacks and a Dries van Noten V-neck sweater. Look at that movement. And the body. Work it out, Lou.
