There's a different type of fashion show in Sochi.

Olympic spectators are embracing the colors of the Russian flag and wearing them with pride.

Some women are taking it one step further:

TWO WOMEN WEARING TRADITIONAL RUSSIAN HEAD DECORATIONS SAYING (English)

"We hope for medals! Gold! Now, in this game!"

Olympic Mascot hats are a popular trend, and souvenir shops are cashing in on the craze.

(SOUNDBITE) (Russian) SHOP ASSISTANT LEONID DRAGANOV, SAYING:

"This animal is very rarely seen in our country and that is why it is unique. Here it is smiling, it has a mustache. These hats are very warm and with his fur it reminds us that it is a very friendly animal."

Among the three mascots - the polar bear, the hare and the leopard - the hare seems to be the most popular.

It symbolizes gentleness, openness and willingness to help. But some customers simply think it's the cutest.
