    ...I can't help notice that the one she wore for "Aranjuez" looks like the yellow one which looks like the red one which looks like the purple one and so on....


    Could not have said it better myself.

    I also love anything worn by Sasha and Liashenko's recent dresses.

    [Color=blue][Font=times][Size=4] For me here is my quick list

    Michelle of Course
    I loved both Dresses for the olympics in 2002. That indgo Blue dress was to die for with that hemline.
    Both Versions of her East of Eden Dress( exhibtions)
    This Past season. Both dresses were great.
    But, I think my total favorite dress was the in 1998. Her Long program Dress( the plane Blue one) I think Billings did that dress for her. It was So simple but yet she made it look Classy & beautiful.
    Sasha:
    She too has beautif dresses.
    I liked the blue one with the see through top this season.
    I think my Favorite of hers was her 2000 LP. The white one. That one looked really good on her.
    Her SP Dress from this past season was pertty too. Not Great but pretty. I hated that LP dress she designed. It would have been better if she had done something different with the neckline. That low cut does not suit her.

    Fumei(sp) I love her taste in Dress. Thought, most of them look almost the same. They suite her perfectly.

    Sarah: There are only a few that I like. The Dark Blue ( SP at the olympics) & the Black Peek A Boo dress that she wore during ( I think) Nationals. That is it.

    Jeniffer Robinson: She is always nicely dressed.

    I think Nicole Bobek's outfits from the 1995 season were unbelieveably stunning. Just gorgeous.

    I like Michelle's TFB dress from this season, but I'm beginning to think she and Vera are allergic to long sleeves, lol. Her Red Violin is a fave of mine as well.

    I don't usually like Irina's outfits but her Carmen LP dress was quite pretty on her.

    Josée Chouinard is also becoming quite the fasion designer... some of her dresses she designed are just gorgeous!
    What dresses has she designed? I know the outfits she wore during her amateur days were always beautiful.

    I like Michelle's dresses, but her LP's are starting to look the same (Red Schez, Yellow Aranjuez, Blue Aranjuez). I liked the SP dress for TFB very daring design and a different look. However, she obviously hates sleeves, so that's bound to be a constant

    I hated Sasha's Maleguena dress at first but it grew on me. And it was better than that LP dress (Nats and Worlds). I didn't think that one looked good at all. It looked ok in the photos where she first announced that she'd be skating in it, but when I saw it on TV, I didn't like it at all.

    Sarah's SP dress at Nats was gorgeous, but the rest for this season I didn't feel were terribly attractive. Especially the SP dress for Worlds, I didn't feel that it suited her.

    Irina's outfits are usually not that great.

    I find it amusing that people either love Sasha's 2003 LP dress, or absolutley hated it. I am in the latter group - I thought it was awful. I liked all the blue dresses she wore earlier in the season, though.

    I loved Michelle's 2003 SP dress the best, but tend to like all her dresses. Her 2003 LP dress is one of my least favorites, though. Kind of the worst of the best.

    The only dress of Irina's I have liked is her Schindler's List exhibition dress. It had beautiful colors and a good fit. I prefer her in shorted skirts, and wish she'd quit the longer ones. I know why she wears the long ones, but I don't agree with the reasoning. She has beautiful, fit legs - show them off!

    AP's dresses are way too over done. Jenny Kirk and Fumie always look classy.

    An awful dress was Irina's "Victory" from the beginning of the season.

    I usually love all Michelle's dresses. I loved her "The Feeling Begins" dress this year. But some of the others I haven't cared for. I harp on the gold braid a lot. I just really don't like the dresses with the gold trim. She almost always dresses so simply, so elegantly that the brightness of the heavy gold braid takes away from her elegant look. Her "Red Violin" dress is one of my favorites. Also the "Lyra Angelica" was a beautiful dress.

    [Color=blue][size=4] That is Funny. He was a very good skater. But, His costumes were never really that good. But, it is all about the skating right:D [/color][/size]

    Thumbs up Maria B.

    [COLOR=orangered]Maria Butyrskaya was involved in or completely responsible for the design of all her own costumes, which I thought were always gorgeous and tasteful. I believe she studied fashion design.[/COLOR]

    I know that a lot of peple didn't like the matador trim on the blue costume, but I thought it was nice for a spaish themed costume. After all, the alternative could have beeen this:

    I had forgotten about the black and creme colored dresses Michelle wore. I liked those two. But it does look like they used pretty much the same pattern for all of them.
