Stella McCartney Responds to Grumpy Olympic Uniform Haters

Stella McCartney with British Olympic athletes Jessica Ennis and Phillips Idowu.

Yesterday, the British press quoted some cranky tweets proclaiming Stella McCartney's new Olympic uniforms to be "too blue." (One tragically corny example: "Did someone forget to order the red dye for the Team GB Olympic kit?") Although the complaints seemed too silly to take seriously, McCartney felt moved enough to tweet in her own defense: "I see many feel as strongly about the Union flag as I do! The design actually uses more red & shows more flag than any Team GB kit since '84," she wrote. So there. Not to mention that blue is a way more flattering color than red when you're all flushed and sweaty.
