If they had you glued to your screens for two whole weeks, fervently praying as they displayed extreme bravado out at the Tokyo Olympics - they are back to stun again, only this time it's not the sporting arena but the fashion one. As the post-Olympics fever still rages, India's lifestyle industry cannot get enough of the Olympic medallist stars - from golden boy Neeraj Chopra to double Olympic medallist PV Sindhu to Assam's first Olympic medallist, Lovlina Borgohain and so many select others. After flashy performances at the Tokyo Olympics, these athletes are now taking breaths away on the cover of reputed lifestyle and fashion magazines like Vogue, Femina and Harper's Bazaar.

Meet the poster boys and girls from the Olympics:

If you mistakenly thought that fashion isn't the cup of tea of these Olympic stars, you have to think again. Capable of giving celebrity models a run for their money, these Olympic stars shift comfortably into their 'fashionable' skins and does just enough to dazzle the Olympic editions of the glitzy-glossy lifestyle magazines.

Appearing on the cover of India Today's Spice magazine's September 2021 edition, Neeraj Chopra paired his good looks with a Louis Vuitton outfit and pulled off quirky with class, sporting brave hues and wearing statement shoes. Currently, Chopra is finally taking a break and is at Maldives!

The Tokyo Olympics, like the 2016 Rio Games, was more about the women athletes who shone and likewise, their exceptional strides deserve celebration. While fencer Bhavani Devi slashed stereotypes about the sport and won her debut match, Mirabai Chanu remained firm on her mission to deliver a silver in weightlifting and Rani Rampal's women shrugged off their underdog status and fought tooth and nail in the bronze medal clash - women were the talk of the Olympics, once again. Exuding power and poise in this cover for Femina India's September 2021 edition, the three women stunned and how!
