Some of my favorite figure skaters have worn absolutely lovely, stunning costumes. My long list of "favorite costumes" includes:
Dorothy Hamill's "American Beauty Rose" dress worn at the 1976 Winter Olympics.
Peggy Fleming's retro-chartreuse dress worn at the 1968 Winter Olympics. Rhinestones around her neck and wrists. Lovely!
Michelle Kwan's simple yet elegant long program dress worn at the 1998 Winter Olympics.
Fumi Suguri's lovely dark blue/light blue dress worn at the 2002 Winter Olympics. A perfect setting for "Moonlight Sonata".
Katarina Witt's flaming-red "Carmen" outfit worn for the 1988 Winter Olympics. She really looked like Carmen, and she played the role to the hilt.
Sasha Cohen's "Carmen" outfit worn at the 2002 Winter Olympics.
Beautifully cut, elegant, and dramatic.
John Curry's simple jumpsuit worn at the 1976 Winter Olympics.
Brian Boitano's dark blue military outfit for his 1988 Winter Olympics "Napoleon" long program.
Brian Orser's red military outfit for his 1988 Winter Olympics "The Bolt" long program.
And the list goes on and on......
