Beyond the thrilling victories and agonizing defeats, the Olympics are a 16-day fashion show, even for fans blithely unaware that the United States Alpine skiing uniforms are meant to evoke the nation’s flag reflected in the water off Fort McHenry the morning after the British bombardment, 200 years ago, that inspired “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

To some, it might just look like a super-tight ski uniform.

But dressing the athletes is more complicated than that, an Olympic sport in itself.

In that case, Ralph Lauren just won himself an Aluminum Foil Medal.
