Victoria Pendleton Gets Race-y

We’re continuing to see the marriage of sport and fashion as Victoria Pendleton, the leggy professional track cyclist, is shot wearing a “race-y” combination of contemporary and designer duds in the April 15, 2011 edition of London’s Evening Standard Magazine.  The spread features the Olympic Champion wearing sportswear by designers Hasan Hejazi, Daks, Helmut Lang, and Marni, laser-cut leggings by Faster by Mark Fast, American Apparel bra tops, and latex shorts by Lovehoney, with accessories by adidas by Stella McCartney.

Now, we can be sure of one thing…Ms. Pendleton is going to look HOT, in the — recently unveiled — Stella McCartney for adidas, TEAM GB Collection, that has just gone viral. You can see a conceptual video for VogueTV, shot by fashion photographer Jacob Sutton, of McCartney describing her inspiration for the stylish, yet highly functional, collection HERE.

We have been obsessing over the news of McCartney designing the uniforms for TEAM GB since last September, as we wait patiently for the 2012 Olympics games in London.
