The London Olympics were perhaps the biggest event of the year. The Opening and Closing Ceremonies, certainly created a frenzy. The Spice Girls reunited for a performance whilst, the fashion tribute definitely left a mark.  British models strutted the arena to David Bowie's Fashion, wearing London's most infamous designers.
 Revenge left audiences at the edge of their seats, whilst Gossip Girl was revealed in the final ever episode, alongside the Chuck and Blair wedding!  Taylor Swift painted the town shades of Red and we all learnt the meaning of Gangnam Style.
