If you’re anything like us, you’re glued to the Olympics right now, raising a cocktail when your fave athletes compete and win… and possibly getting a teensy bit jealous of their beautiful gold medals. Even though they’re a bit gaudy for an everyday accessory, it’s something to wear proudly, like your favorite and most coveted pair of Louboutins.
We’ve been eying a few gold medalists and wondering if they could make it on the Upper East Side. So, naturally, we took to InStyle’s Virtual Makeover tool and gave them an elite hairstyle. Then we consulted with gossipgirlfashion.net to find the perfect wardrobe for their new look. Check out our Gossip Girl fashion and beauty makeovers for some of our favorite Olympians (Gabby Douglas, Ryan Lochte, Missy Franklin, Michael Phelps, and Aly Raisman) below!

Gabby Douglas Channeling Blair Waldorf
After adding glamorous waves to her hair, we put the gymnastics star in a bandage dress (to show off her awesome muscles, of course), and accessorized with a Louis Vuitton bag and peep toe slingback pumps.
Ryan Lochte Channeling Chuck Bass
Just put the swimmer in a sexy suit and accessorize with a paisley tie and he's looking (almost) as good as Chuck Bass.
Missy Franklin Channeling Serena van der Woodsen
We gave the swimmer blonde highlights and voluminous curls a la Blake Lively and threw in a flowy floral skirt, beaded camisole, Christian Louboutin suede pumps, and a fun bag.
Michael Phelps Channeling Dan Humphrey
We added a little more volume to the swimmer's hair and suggest he rock a button down shirt and argyle cardigan for a Brooklyn chic look.
Aly Raisman Channeling Georgina Sparks
We gave the gymnast a sleek hairstyle and think she'd look great in the Carven cut-out long sleeve dress Georgina wore in "The Princess Dowry."
