  • Grading the uniforms at the opening ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics

    With the 2018 Winter Olympics opening ceremony in the books, here's a look at some of the best and worst uniforms spotted during the parade of nations, which featured 92 countries, including the United States, Canada, France, Australia, Mexico and more.

  • 1 Tonga

    Nope. Your eyes aren't deceiving you. The most popular athlete at the most recent summer games, qualified for these Winter Olympics. Hard to focus on any uniforms when he's walking around shirtless in freezing temperatures. Kudos.

  • 2 Mexico

    The sombrero is eye-catching, but check out the bottom of the shoes, too.

  • 3 United States

    Very, very interesting gloves.

  • 4 Spain

    When can we get fitted for ours?

  • 5 Bermuda

    Did you expect anything less than shorts?

  • 6 Germany

    Not the color combination we're accustomed to seeing.

  • 7 Canada

    The Canadians never disappoint.

  • 8 Jamaica

    Ja maka me crazy. And we can't wait for the country's women's bobsled team to become a crowd favorite.

  • 9 Brazil

    Could do without the patch on the left pockets, but otherwise not bad.

  • 10 Britian

    Depending on one's mood, the hat be rotated to feature the catchy Team GB logo, the Adidas emblem or the flag. 

  • 11 Madagascar

    A missed opportunity. These leave a lot to be desired.

  • 12 Belgium

    Well, they don't make us think of waffles. So there's that.

  • 13 Colombia

    Nice hats and top layer over the jackets.

  • 14 Australia

    If we're being completely honest, these don't blow us away.

  • 15 Finland

    Hands down, one of the top five most-interesting ones we've seen so far.

  • 16 Nigeria

    Royalty is the first word that comes to mind. Nicely done.

  • 17 Olympic Athletes from Russia

    Because of sanctions, they weren't allowed to march in under the own flag. 

  • 18 Morocco

    Love how the top of the jacket covers the entire neck and there appear to be hoods, too. Solid

  • 19 Japan

    Maybe the most comfortable looking gloves and boots we've seen. 

  • 20 South Africa

    Not the best; not the worst.

  • 21 Greece

    When you're always the first country to enter the house, you don't necessarily have to grab attention via a fashion statement.

  • 22 Portugal

    Ok. We're gonna have to use Bing to learn more about the intricate details on those sleeves.

  • 23 Slovenia

    For those few countries rocking the green, these stand out.

  • 24 China

    Nice subtle touch with the Olympic rings on the jacket. 

  • 25 Romania

    Nothing to write home about, but not terrible.

  • 26 France

    Even if you're not French, you gotta want to buy these.

  • 27 San Marino

    So the pants don't do much for us, but we love the jackets.

  • 28 Bulgaria

    Nice job weaving in the colors. 

  • 29 Unified North Korea

    They're hosting the party. No complaints here.

  • 30 Serbia

    First ones we've spotted with the country name on the pants.

  • 31 Belarus

    The scarf is a nice touch

  • 32 Timor-Leste

    The baseball caps are gonna look a lot better once some Olympic pins get added to them.

  • 33 Sweden

    The flag bearer's jacket reminds us a little of the disco era. Nice to see a bubble jacket variety among the blue and black tops.

  • 34 Norway

    At first glance, we thought they were sporting beanies. 

  • 35 Ghana

    The side stiching gets lost when one's arms aren't extended. Both the flag and the country name on the hat might be a little too much.

  • 36 Iran

    Love her gloves. Do those jackets have buttons, zippers or snaps?

  • 37 Kosovo

    Meh.

  • 38 Turkey

    Sleek. 

  • 39 Macedonia

    The black stripe down the side of the legs is in keeping with the main zipper and the ones on the pockets.

  • 40 Iceland

    These don't leave us speechless. They get the job done.

  • 41 Netherlands

    No one rocks Orange better than the Netherlands.

  • 42 Hungary

    When we see gray pants we think sweat pants.

  • 43 Kyrgyzstan

    We almost missed the nice head gear she's wearing in the back right because we were so busy studying what the men are wearing.

  • 44 Togo

    We count a combination of five patches/lettering, not including the head gear.

  • 45 Switzerland

    We don't hate them. 

  • 46 Moldova

    You don't see gloves that color every day. Nice touch with the red inner lining.

  • 47 Austria

    Given a choice, we'd pick the white beanies over the gray ones.

  • 48 New Zealand

    Men in black.

  • 49 Azerbaijan

    Men in Black 2.

  • 50 Cyprus

    Don't take this the wrong way, but we look at those colors and instantly think of Shamu.

  • 51 Bolivia

    Nice to see the Eagle on both the jacket and the hat.

  • 52 Israel

    .

  • 53 Puerto Rico

  • 54 Eritrea

    We can't tell what kind of fur is lining the hoods.
