    I couldn't agree more. She is really stunning.

    And yesterday, I was also reminded of how lovely Evora Ladwig is. Her smile is especially warm and radiant.

    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).

    Katarina Witt
    Katia Gordeeva
    Shizuka Arakawa
    Yuna Kim
    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).

    Eeps! I must have been asleep when I typed that. Of course I meant Amanda Evora. So sorry.

    Ha! Yeah, definitely some "interesting" choices I'm seeing on here...although this whole thing is very subjective, of course. And I'll probably see things differently than most people on this forum anyway.

    I can't include her because, as parents the world over promised their kids, her face may get stuck like that if she keeps making those crazy faces.

    I think a lot of people are listing their favorite skaters/the most beautiful movers on ice. For me at least, that doesn't overlap much with the most physically beautiful skaters. Mao Asada, Kiira Korpi, Viktoria Helgesson, Tessa Virtue and Elena Ilinykh stand out to me and some of the most graceful and beautiful in terms of skating nowadays. And while they're all very attractive people, they're not absolutely flawlessly beautiful while standing still (super nitpicky of me I know). But really, I'd rather have them make beauty on ice than just be beautiful.

    Yup. Never fails...

    Anyway, I agree there is little to no overlap here. Like I said before, skaters that might have the looks may be in fact quite boring to watch on the ice because they have no originality. I see them as two completely different categories.

    Tanith Belbin is the most beautiful for me:

    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.
