Not only did she slim down and tone up, but her costumes and overall packaging 2007 on were more sexy/elegant in a westernized sense whereas in 2006 she looked frumpy and had that very harsh "asian" haircut.

Whoa, you guys cynthia has a striking face- she has a very masculine physiqie, but most skaters have no breasts. Only the tiny Asian girls look good with no curves. It is natural and feminine. Miki looks like Sophia Loren. With all the Asian beauties in our sport, I never saw Miki as pretty at all. Taste I guess is so individual. Mao has those funny earlobes and is crosseyed but to me she is a beautiful butterfly-her tinny figure in periwinkle is so feminine and she moves so beautifully. Yuna is like a gazelle, a greyhound, a racehorse with those huge jumps and flexed feet that still look huge with beige bootcovers. She is a beautiful face, though, I'll bet among the prettiest korean women on the planet.
Cynthia has beautiful eyes. I agree the slicked hair does not make her look feminine. The prettiest skater right now is Ash but she skates with a power that is more yang than yin.
I never saw John Travolta while watching cynthia...that is the oddest comparison. I would say Travolta is in the news so maybe that is why he comes to mind. John was actually a beautiful young man, the eyes, the hair, the hips. Almost feminine in a way. Maybe we are just getting more androgenous as a culture? And it is obvious with athletes who are maxing their bodies out. I have often wondered if extreme exercise stops puberty in its tracks? Cynthia has an agnes type body. Is this a good thing in this glam sport? Tonya was never too petite as she didn't train but her face was girly and she looked girly despite the thighs. Tonya when thinner was really cute with those big blue eyes.
Wonder if she will push her son to skate to make up for her ruined career...oh, well.
