The 2020 Olympic Opening Ceremony, which took place in Tokyo on Friday, was a little bit eerie, but there were plenty of exuberant outfits to at least sort of distract from the empty stands. For starters, the Japanese singer-songwriter Misia performed the Japanese national anthem in a voluminous, rainbow-colored gown by designer Tomo Koizumi.

Afterwards, the Parade of Nations offered a rare survey of the world’s fashions, from Angola to Vanuatu.

Each nation, of course, brought their own color to the ceremony. Some wore elaborate gowns and headpieces and suits. Some, like the athletes from Bermuda, wore … Bermuda shorts.

And others wore nothing at all on top.

The Ukrainians donned yellow fanny packs.

Sierra Leone had the best tracksuits.

There were also some designer fashions in the crowd. Telfar Clemens, the man behind the “Bushwick Birkin,” made some pretty incredible uniforms for Liberia.

Plus, Giorgio Armani and Ralph Lauren once again did the looks for their respective countries.
