On the flip side, some of my favorite skaters have appeared in costumes that have made me shake my head in dismay. "What were they thinking???"
Many of the ice dancers have worn costumes that resemble thrown-together rags. Just simply UGLY. Pieces of fabric, beads, and feathers all over the place. YUK.
Lobocheva/Averbukh and Anissina/Peizerat both win the booby prize for "Most Ugly Costumes", in my estimation. Their garish costumes were so distracting! I spent more time watching their outfits - to see if anything would fall off - than I did watching their performances.
Maria Butryaskaya never did settle the "panty issue". Her exposed fanny was quite distracting, and her costumes were pretty scant. Not enough skin was covered, and the fit was very unflattering, in my opinion.
Sarah Hughes has worn a few costumes that resemble the style of bathing suits that were fashionable in the 1950s. Very long skirt, no sleeves, long cut. Ugh.
Irina Slutskaya has worn some perfectly AWFUL skating costumes.
Her 2002 Winter Olympics long program dress resembled a patchwork quilt. Some of her other dresses looked like rags.
I really like Irina, but her costumes -- ugh.
Anyone out there with similar complaints??
