    Does Miki have another LP costume? I feel like it's been different for every competition this season....

    I was looking at Yahoo just know on top Olympic searches and saw Tessa on the Top 3 (behind Ovechkin and Bode Miller) and saw what's she's wearing for the FD.

    It's her best FD costume yet. And a very daring choice on the decolletage, considering the crazy rotational lifts they do. I don't see how her jubblies are going to stay in. As much as I look forward to that malfunction, the point deduction may cost them the gold so I'm a bit conflicted.

    That's what double sided tape is for!

    It's only tape, not magic. Those puppies won't stay in the car, not with the kind of crazy rotational lifts V/M do.

    I thought charred chicken. I mean, that is a firebird of sorts.

    I'm kind of hoping Yuna would change her SP costume - I just don't like that off-shoulder cut. At all.
    Plus, she showcased this piece of gorgeousness in an ad recently. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7d80pEhqIo
    I like black feathers. Except when they're on Evan Lysacek.

    I absolutely adore Yuna's LP costume, though. Blue and silver, so lovely.

    Other costumes of Yuna's that I hope she'll wear for gala (which I heard she changed):

    White Dress of Utter Grace and Elegance (from various ice shows)

    Well, I liked all Tessa's dresses this season so far. This one is beautiful but kind of very simple. I always prefered the one she wore at TEB. Plus not sure I understand why her dress and Scott's shirt are so dismatched. Is it supposed be like that in color or they did not even think about it? And tell me if I'm mistaken but Scott has been wearing this shirt all season..hm. I always love how they look though so no complains.
    I pray for Meryl and Charlie to change their FR costumes! Will they? Cause it just strikes me that Tessa had so many outfits and Meryl and Charlie just had one for the whole season....Sad.. Although I loved their costumes too!

    I REALLY hope this is not the actual dress she will wear for what every could well be their gold-medal winning freeskate. I agree with Charlotte Elizabeth that Scott is still wearing the ochre colored shirt that matched Tessa's last dress. Her dress here looks cheap and the top just looks to big on her. I didn't love the cut of her dresses before, but they were a lot more elegant and gold-medal worthy than this.

    I personally think Tessa looks amazing in any costume.

    First of all, DesertRoad, thank you for making me laugh; I enjoyed so much your euphemisms for the mammary glands lol. Still cracking up over "jubblies". Love it. I have not seen such colorful euphemisms since a selection from Sir Richard Burton's translation of The Arabian Nights. (It was a gift ).

    Now to the costumes. For those who have decried the bright colors that Khokhlova and Novitskiy have brought to their "Firebird" presentation, I offer an URL which gives the story of the Firebird. There is one in wiki, of course, which is somewhat enlightening, but my favorite is this one:

    http://www.surlalunefairytales.com/firebird/index.html

    "...every night there came flying into the garden a bird that shone like the moon, whose feathers were gold and its eyes like crystal"

    "...and the feather shone so that the whole place was bright with it. The Tsar could not sufficiently admire it, for when it was brought into a darkened room it gleamed as if a hundred candles had been lighted."

    A ballet was made based on this Russian fairy tale, with music by Stravinskiy, premiering in Diaghilev's Ballets Russes in Paris in 1910. The costume design for the Firebird by Leon Bakst is shown here:

    http://www.tigtail.org/TIG/S_View/TV...ebird.1910.jpg

    I believe the costume is meant to convey the extreme brightness of the bird, as described in the fairy tale about it. The one thing the costume of the Firebird itself should not be, is dark. I do not find the K&N costume to be erroneous; I rather find Evan's Firebird costume to be utterly in error. It was somewhat feathered, so I took it to be supposedly the Firebird. A black Firebird? Preposterous!

    By the way, I used to like some Vera Wang designs that were not for skating, but some of the designs she made for Michelle Kwan caused Kwan to have to keep tugging at the straps, which simply would not stay in place. I do not care for Vera Wang's skating designs.

    Here is a large picture of Bakst's Firebird costume design (click on the picture to enlarge it):

    Lol, looking at the pics is funny, as well as reading the comments (thanks for posting EM Swift's take on it all, lol).

    Too bad pics & video don't quite bring to the table what it's like to see the costumes in person/live/first hand because in person they are *dazzling*. I'll never forget Brezina's sparkly costume nor Johnny Weir's (my fav that night; he honestly looked like a movie star) nor Evgeni's million stars, ahhh.
