And yesterday, I was also reminded of how lovely Evora Ladwig is. Her smile is especially warm and radiant.
And my favorite category ...
Katarina Witt (who else!)
Oops, can't forget her: Shae-Lynn Bourne

at some people's selections. Although it's a good reminder that being graceful and beautiful at skating has little to do with the conventional kind of beauty which can be achieved merely by standing there. Here are my picks, which excludes anyone with the slightest bit of superficial flaw, because I'm exact, and anyone under 18, because no one that young deserves to have their looks picked apart and besides, they could always grow up ugly (or vice versa).
Alissa Czisny (the only skater on here without an Olympic gold medal, but I'm American so I'm going to notice her more)
That's it! If a skater's not on this list, then U G L Y you ain't got no alibi (or isn't high profile enough for me to remember your mug).
imo, there are only 2 bombshells when I think of vivacious and sexy
Katarina Witt and Elena Ilinykh
Tanith Belbin is the most beautiful for me:
I also like Kiira Korpi, Anna Capellini and Natalie Pechalat.
At the end of Rachael Flatt's long program, that smile she gave was so radiant that I have to put her on my list too. I know my list is long. But that's how I think of beauty. It's significant that my favorite painters are largely portraitists: Rembrandt, Vermeer, Gainsborough, Thomas Eakins, John Singer Sargent. Anyway, Rachael goes on my list.
