  • Team GB swimmer Rebecca Adlington swapped her Olympics kit for cocktail wear as she hit the town for the Speedo Red party

    Team GB swimmer Rebecca Adlington and other London 2012 Olympians swapped their Olympics kit for cocktail wear as they hit the town for the Speedo Red party at the Kensington Roof Gardens.

    Adlington showed off a glam evening look in a fitted plunge-neck red dress with side cut-outs, which she teamed with a chain-strap handbag, spangly drop earrings and a statement cuff bracelet, to party the night away with her fellow Olympians in Kensington.

    There was plenty of leg on show as the Speedo-sponsored athletes flaunted their enviable physiques in fitted mini-dresses and heels – although, by the end of the evening, many of those had been swapped for comfy flats.

    Top names in swimming including Ryan Lochte, Nathan Adrian and the most-decorated-Olympian-of-all-time Michael Phelps, who made his red carpet debut with model girlfriend Megan Rossee, were all in attendance.

    We noticed that while the London 2012 Olympic ladies love their bling – from chunky bracelets to statement earrings – there were hardly any necklaces on display. Who needed them? The girls chose to accessorize with their Olympic medals instead.
