It’s Nelly Furtado and Bryan Adams in the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Opening ceremonies! After the Parade of Nations, Bryan Adams and Nelly Furtado performed “Bang the Drum”, a song written as a tribute to the Vancouver Olympic athletes. Check out Nelly Furtado’s outfit – an electric blue shot silk cocktail dress with an a-symmetrical neckline, designed by Canadian designers DSquared! The distinctive design of Nelly’s draped shoulder was mirrored by the dramatic height of her 16 cm studded heel. DSquared also dressed Bryan Adams with a slim classic black tailored three-button stretch cady suit over a white poplin shirt with PVC covered collar and cuff and a skinny 60’s black tie, and balck vernice pointed shoes. Go Canada Go!
I went to the Olympic Irish House (620 Nelson Street) preview last night, a 9,000 square-foot pavilion house which is open to the public between February 8th to 28th. Located in a makeshift tent beside Doolins Irish Pub, this country pavillion reminds me of a typical beer garden crossed with a sports bar – complete with TV projections, a Nintendo Wii Station and a live band. Drink tickets can be bought for $8 to $9 – a preview of Olympics prices for the next month. There are two separate balconies accessible by stairs, and a sales booth by the entrance selling Celtic patterned jewelry. Click for photos and to continue reading.
