    Well, I see her training photos and other photos where she is not having any makeup at all, even the lipstick, and she looks stunningly beautiful to me.
    She is definitely not plain and not like a boy at all. I don't know your gender, but I suspect you're a woman, so you kind of can't appreciate her

    Yes, in some of those ads of YuNa with make-up and airbrushing, she is "unrecognizable", but not more so than the grand majority of celebrities. In fact, most celebrities don't go anywhere without any make-up on. YuNa regularly continues to make commercials and public appearances without any...what does that say about her personality compared to those that never do?

    Courtesy of the YNKF, a non-airbrushed, made-up photo of YuNa might go like this: http://img130.imageshack.us/img130/7...0326024642.jpg

    A non-make-up YuNa looks like this:

    Personally, I don't think that is "plain"; she remains very pretty to me. But maybe it's because my standards of beauty are "low". I'm curious to see what those who criticize her looks...look like, themselves. And if any of you are willing to put no-nonsense no-makeup non-airbrushed-or-specially-framed photographs of themselves, I could do the same and we could compare baseline standards.

    Now that's what I call a casual photo of Yuna: http://isplus.joins.com/component/ht...070100-002.jpg
    If that's not a beautiful lady... It's a very beautiful lady.

    Thanks so much for your detailed and enthusiastic report, Seniorita! It made me feel as though I had seen the competition myself. How nice that the audience applauded even for the less well-known skaters.

    It's interesting to see that everyone's descriptions of YuNa and Mao agree with what you witnessed live. On one side is YuNa with her incredible jumps and speed going into and out of them, plus that air of serenity, while on the other is Mao with her elegant posture and spirals and the "light like a fairy" quality that you mentioned.

    All the other skaters you described are people I don't usually get to see, people like Sebestyen, Korpi, and Gedevanishvili, so it's an extra treat to have your impressions. From what you say, the Finnish ladies still win the fashion awards. I remember how stunning they were in the 2006 Olympics. The only one who equaled them was Kostner.

    I think in some ads, like Nike's, she is actually mostly without a makeup. Of course the photographer does some job, but it's pretty much what we would see in the real life, except that in the real live she looks much better than on photos, according to all the reports I know about

    So anyone who doesn't choose a career as a model instead of sports, cannot be as beautiful as a model?
    I don't agree with that obviously.
    Some skaters have more woman-ly bodies like Cynthia P. and some more athletic and juniorish like Mao or Yuna. Certainly I do not think Yuna is not beautiful or her body looks like a 13 year old boy. I am a girl, I do not appreciate her (lol that was funny expression) but I can certainly see she is rather beautiful and exotic with or without makeup. I also find Miki very beautiful and Sara Meier and Elene G. Why skaters dont let their hair down by the way?
    And most ice dancers look like models!

    ... and of course those ugly Finish ladies..:sheesh:

    Yup, I'm thinking of all the Nike ads and the fabric softener commercial with the big bear.

    I think all the ladies skaters are beautiful, even those who are not in the top of the world. Mao, Miki, Laura and Elene are especially beautiful, I think, not to mention Yuna.

    Yuna is beautiful IMO and she def does not have the body of a 13 year old boy. Yuna, despite being so thin, actually looks like a woman on the ice compared to some of the other skaters who look like little girls. Yuna's skinny but she has curves and the ideal body shape, nice hair, clear skin, and beautiful eyes...what's not to love?

    You are probably right.

    But I hope not.

    If the program component scores for each skater are fixed at the beginning of the season, why go through the charade of seating judges at the scoring table at all? And why would anyone want to watch such a "competition?"

    f would be really crazy if a player gets a very high PCS at a competition and a very low PCS at another one for the same program.
    I disagree.. Even if the choreography is the same on paper, in one performance a skater might be successful in communicating the spirit and nuances of the choreography to the ice, and in another performance, not so much. In one performance the musical interpretation comes shining through, in another it falls flat.

    There are actually people in this world who think YuNa is plain? And they think this while they're looking at her? She couldn't be plain with a paper bag over her head.

    Mao is also very attractive, but to me, what stands out most is her expressiveness. She's got a true actress's face. When she smiles, I feel like smiling. When she's into the music, she shows it with her face as much as with her posture.

    This is going to be VERY off-topic, but: does anyone know what song the Russian soprano was singing during the Sochi 2014 presentation at Vancouver's closing ceremonies? It's very familiar, but I don't know where it's from. Thanks.
