    Elena Ilinykh's SD dress(the blue one, she wore it I think at nationals)
    Anna Capellini's SD dress(goergeous!)
    Ashley's both SP and LP
    Savchenko/Szolkowy Pina costumes
    Akiko's LP(all of them)
    Ksenia's SP dress
    Mao's EX costume


    Worst
    Huang Xintong / Zheng Xun's SD costumes.
    Ekaterina Bobrova's first SD dress
    Adelina Sotnikova's SP costume(the blue one she wore at Cop of China) and the LP dress
    Liza T's LP green dress

    IMO Amodio wins worst outfit for men with the sweatpants with green string at the wait, a tiger stripe top, and green vest for the LP that he wore on the GP. Thank goodness he replaced it for Worlds and WTT!

    As we reply to the costumes thread...can anyone edit in who the designers/dressmakers were?
    Some of my favorites this season utilized jewel tone colors and a more simple unified theme directly associated to the music selection.

    Honestly, has Meryl EVER had a bad costume, LOL?

    I can't remember a really bad one.

    And she has used the same designer since she was in novices.

    I really liked Mao Asada's Scheherazade pants in the beginning of the season. Why she changed it for the weird turquoise dress half way through? It was perfect. *sigh*

    Stephanie Miller is Meryl and Charlie's costume designer.

    http://www.theticker.tc/story/costum...e-stars-on-ice

    Here's an article about Stephanie

    Color of fabric against the skater’s skin tone is the first thing we always look at,”says Miller. “Then I listen to the music and consider what the skater’s likes and dislikes are.”

    Miller should know what Davis, 25, likes – and looks good in – by now.

    “Meryl was eight years old when we first started sewing her freestyle dresses and then for her and Charlie when they became a team shortly after that.”

    Miller designs and does the “stoning” – the crystals, beads and other sparkly embellishments – for the costumes, and her business partner Luanne Williams does all the sewing from her home in Grass Lake, near Jackson.

    “Luanne can sew anything I draw up,” says Miller of their 17-year working relationship. “She is amazing.”

    ...
    Miller herself was a synchronized skater for 17 years and also did ice dancing – she designed all her own costumes back then. Her eye for design, however, caught the envy of many fellow skaters and soon her professional designing career was underway.

    Ice dancing fielded some disasters this season.
    Without doubt, Gorshkova / Butikov had some of the worst costumes ever.
    Some of Bobrova's FD costumes were awful as well.
    The Chinese also have a knack for some bad color combinations for their ice dancers.

    Of the ladies, Tuktamysheva's green costume worn in the GPF was much too bare and very inappropriate for a 14-year-old. She looked like she was auditioning for a strip routine in Las Vegas.

    The Russians like to dress their men in what looks like toilet paper streamers, regardless of the music or the theme.

    Not to mention Team France literally wound in toilet paper in the KnC.

    Brian Joubert was particularly good.

    Seconded. Sartorial eyesore of the season across all disciplines for me.

    Perhaps it's blind fandom, but I thought Pharaoh and his Mummy were adorable in their get-ups.

    Best: Meryl's FD dress

    Worst: I's (of I/K) black table cloth...er short dance dress

    I liked Alissa's original FS dress, the dark blue one that seemed to suit the tone of the program better anyway. Anyone know why she changed it? The change in dress seems to also have coincided with the change in her performances this season...
