Best and Worst Outfits of the past season
Since we're all reminiscing, which costume stood out to you?
Rachael's Firebird costume--no contest. Love the colors, the black outlines of feathers like stained glass leading, the tailoring.
Wicked Yankee Girl
Meryl's DF dress.
Tessa's FF dress.
Carolina's SP dress
Rachael's LP dress
Madison Hubbell's SD dress
Sotnikova's SP dress with the red stockings
Bobrova's thankfully departed orange and black SD dress that she used during the GP
Gracie Gold's Ex dress
I would add:
both Kaitlyn Weaver's dresses
Meryl's bronze SD dress
Ashley's black swan (for not going too far)
Madison Hubbells SD dress at Worlds
Am I mean to mention Alex Shibutani's FD outfit? One cliche piled on another higgledy-piggledy.
There is one costume that sticks in my mind as bad. It's that green almost-dress of Liza Tukt.
I agree that Meryl's magenta free dance dress is stunning, helped along by her auburn hair. Everything about that Fledermaus program is wonderful, from the music to the choreography to the perfect costumes.
Elena Ilinykh's SD dresses went from beautiful (black netting) to generic (aqua) to terrible (black handkerchief) over the course of the season.
The best men´s costumes were the ones Jef Billings created for Kozuka for this season, in my opinion. Kanako Murakami had a very beautiful freeskate costume.
Off the ice
Akiko Suzuki for the win. Ashley Wagner also had great costumes this season.
Euro ladies: I liked Kiira Korpi's LP dress - unique and beautiful - and Elene G looked great in her LP dress, too. Carolina Kostner's costumes were different and striking but not my cup of tea. Further down the ranks, I thought Yretha Silete's had a very interesting LP costume.
In other disciplines, Dai and Yuzuru looked good, and what Savchenko/Szolkowy wore for the Pina program was simple but very nice (the color was gorgeous).
Cappellini and Lanotte's La Strada costumes were super-cute.
Gotta Have Music
Meryl & Tessa's free dance dresses
the Golden Era
Liza Tuk's old LP red dress
Julia's LP blue dress
Ashley's LP Black swan dress
Carolina's unitards and SP dress
Akiko's LP dress
Sotnikova's SP red dress
Gold's horrible polka dots EX dress
Czisny's transparent dress
Bobrova's witch costumes
Loved Cappellini and Lanotte's FD costumes! I usually don't like tights/half tights over boots but it looked great here and they looked so cute: http://www.daylife.com/photo/07mGcBN8gx98n
Loved Savchenko/Szolkovy's FP costumes. I never really liked their costumes, thought they were over the top sometimes, but this year's FP costumes were simple and fit the theme of the program perfectly. They let the skating speak for itself, and I liked that: http://news.daylife.com/photo/08qT3b...fe&q=savchenko
Loved Carolina's unitard. At first I was like OMG what is she wearing but I got used to it and now I think it looks amazing on her. It also fit the program so well, it was like classical music meets contemporary dance. Only she can pull it off and she set herself apart with her package (programs + costumes) this year. While I didn't really like the SP dress, the unitard was wow. Especially liked the back: http://news.daylife.com/photo/00K02L...rolina+kostner
I also liked Carolina's exhibition dress: http://news.daylife.com/photo/0aEF4Z...rolina+kostner
Both Virtue/Moir and Davis/White FD costumes, they had the whole package!
Mao's Jupiter dress. Just gorgeous, and the program is http://news.daylife.com/photo/0dtz0O...fe&q=mao+asada
Alissa's FP dress, it looked as if she was wearing lingerie.
Alena's FP dress, because I hate those kind of dresses in general.
Both of Mao's SP dresses ... I dunno, I think she could have done a lot better!
Akiko's dark blue LP,
Kanako's LP (especially the previous, lighter blue version)
Polina's LP dress from Europeans
Ashley's LP&SP dress
Anna Cappelini SD dress.
Carolina's silver LP costume itself, however Im not entirely sure whether it matched the music. I would prefer she used it for more modern music.
Jeremy's LP costume. Simple and matched the music well.
Tessa's SD dress, although it obscured her hip movements. But the dress itself was nice.
Kavaguti Smirnov LP costumes
Contesti LP neon green-red outfit
Ziganshina /Gazsi SD costumes. It almost looked like they lost they laguage and had to figure out the costumes in H&M.
Mae Berenice Meite costumes
Sotnikova WTT Lp dress..
Makarova's pink LP dress
Akiko's lp (actually at first it reminded me a lot of yuna's 2010 lp dress anyway gorgeous)
Joannie's true colors ex dress
Dai's crisis ex
Amodio's old lp zibra-striped green dress
I think Yuzuru's both dresses were great, very stylish. Some have said the blue SP dress was horrible, but the first time I saw him wearing it in CoC I thought "what an elegant skater and what an elegant dress!". I didn't like Carolina's silver LP dress that much., although it's nice that ladies sometimes wear trousers, too.
