And no one has a favorite or two or three iconic costumes?
Sasha Cohen's beautifal dark eyes and romeo and juliet dresses
Ashley Wagner black swan.
And I LOVE Domnina's tnago romantica dress.
And the pasodoble.

I don't know if there's a photo, but Rachael's Firebird dress this season was probably my favorite costume ever.
You get a glimpse of it here in this backstage clip, because of course NBC won't allow footage of the actual program on YouTube.
I'm also fond of Meryl's magenta dress for Die Fledermaus. Beautiful color, especially with her hair, perfect length (not too short, not so long that you worry she'll get her skate caught in it), with the lovely frothy underskirt flaring out when she does turns.
And in another way, for their simplicity, I love the casual but beautifully color-coordinated heathery blue-gray outfits worn by Sale/Pelletier in 2002 for Love Story.
Gotta put Michelle in. I love her dress for Song of the Black Swan (2001). Love the deep color, and the cut of the skirt--belling out past her waist, longer in the back.
2010/2011 season: Virtue/Moir's SD: Beautifully flapperesque, and so in tune with what they're trying to portray you feel they exist in a Midnight in Paris world, but we're the visitors.
2009/2010 season: Cappellini/Lanotte FD: Intoxicating, dark, alluring, repellent, pitch perfect for what they were going for.
2008/2009 season: Faiella/Scali FD: rich in character and detailing.
2007/2008 season: Domnina/Shabalin: So full of presence. Love Shabalin's in particular.
