If you look back at all the posts, you'll find that this thread is completely misnamed. It should be called "Straight Women Behaving Like Joan Rivers." I don't know the first thing about high fashion, and I don't care. I'm a T-Shirt & Jeans kind of guy.

Two people in desperate need of make-overs:
1. Viktoria Vochkova. She's so beautiful, yet nothing about her performances stand out. Costumes are hideous and the choreography, if there is any, is always totally forgettable. She needs to get herself to Canada pronto for a make-over ala Lulu (Toller), Boitano (Sandra) , MK (Lori) and/or Shen&Zao (LeeAnn). Somebody needs to send a jolt of electricty thru this girl's package, because her career is in ICU.
2. Todd Eldridge. He really needs to understand that one doesn't have to use war themed blockbuster movie soundtracks to look powerful, they're really just noise. He could try Mars from the Planets, or even the shipwreck music from Scherezade. There are plenty of tense pieces without resorting to boxoffice pulp. As for costumes: I'd say keep it simple stupid. Classic clean lines, drop the drapery bit.

Realtorgal, I guess I'm just a sucker for pretty in pink. I liked both of the pictures you posted!

I think I'd select Ludmilla Nelidina as the woman most in need of a makeover. I realize she's at somewhat of a disadvantage with the name Ludmilla, but maybe she could just shorten it to Milla? Worked for Milla Jovovitch the model! (Whose name I've mangled, I'm sure.)
And the hair...dear Lord the hair. I know it's football season, but unless she's planning on landing on her head, there's no need to keep the helmet hair. She won't even need to spend a fortune, we could take her to the mall and have her hair done by Regis Salon or Fantastiks or something.
If all else fails, we'll drop her off at the nearest high school. I'm sure most of the girls there would be more than happy to do a makeover. Most of them live for that sort of thing.
Looks like the cotton candy machine exploded. And then stones got stuck on too!

This look doesn't work for me either:
Whoever makes the dresses for the Russian girls: Let's try and cut out fabric designs with our eyes OPEN, shall we?

Trying to bring this post back on topic: gay men giving fashion advice to clueless straight men, I offer the floowing:
Plushy, Abt, Klimkin, sweeties, even for a church wedding, a simple t-shirt with jeans is a classic look that balances out the crown nicely. With all of those prom dress rejects you guys are wearing, who can even notice the gold medals.
Yes, Mosco is burning and you all belong to the fabulous house of Mishin, but let's tone it down a bit. I understand that you need to dress this way, but why do you have to rub my face in it?
Dress style is afterall a private thing.
Oh dear God! Like a closet full of brides maids' gowns has exploded and the fragmented bits fell all over Russian male skaters.
With outfits like these, who needs to talk about homosexuality in Russia.
