British Models Walking in Olympic Closing Ceremony

Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell to Participate in Olympics Closing Ceremony

The rumors are true: a host of British supermodels — including Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell — will take to the runway during the closing ceremony of the London Olympics.

Moss and Campbell will be joined by Georgia May Jagger, Stella Tennant, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Lily Cole during their turn on the specially designed catwalk. Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen's Sarah Burton will dress the models, and the presentation will reportedly be set to David Bowie's songs "Fashion" and "Rebel Rebel."

The catwalk presentation will be part of a multimillion-dollar closing games extravaganza, which will be titled "A Symphony of British Music" and will feature musical performances by Queen, George Michael, Annie Lennox, Adele, The Pet Shop Boys, and One Direction, among others. A troupe of 300 dancers will move through choreography inspired by London at rush hour, and Russell Brand will perform a comedic version of the Sex Pistols' "Pretty Vacant" and The Beatles' "I Am the Walrus." Sir Paul McCartney and Sir Elton John are also on the performance schedule. All of the performers are being paid a fee of £1 — about $1.55 at the current exchange rate.

The show's organizers stress that the set list is subject to change and are reticent about revealing further details. "We won't comment," a spokesman said. "We want the lineup to be a surprise."
