dressed: Burkina Faso

Hands down, this might be the best Opening Ceremony outfit of the night. It ticked not one, not two, but three of fashion’s favorite tropes: the stripes, the tunic shape, and the street style-worthy hat. And as a bonus, intricate prints and detailing.<p>Hands down, this might be the best Opening Ceremony outfit of the night.

The Cook Islands

The Cook Islands, way out in the South Pacific near New Zealand, chose not to opt for a conservative look. In tropical floral prints in green, the women finished off with flower crowns. Festival dress made almost chic again.

The Refugees Olympics Team

The first-ever team composed entirely of refugees, only 10 in all, deserves so much more than making the best-dressed Opening Ceremony list. Their tenacity and their passion prove that belief, hard work, and having the support of the rest of the world proves you can do anything.<p>The first-ever team composed entirely of refugees, only 10 in all, deserves so much more than making the best-dressed Opening Ceremony list.

Worst-dressed: Germany

Worst-dressed: China
