I like so many costumes, but I think the best prizes go to Caro last two seasons, Akiko, this past season, Ashley Wagner is always on the best dressed list, and Gracie gold is eyepopping in any thing, esp this years red dress for her Sp Hernando's hideaway. She is just majestic. Mao is always delightful. Special mention for appropriate was YuNa's dress in Les Mis. Tough to look glam and poor at same time-glam won out. I like the shape on Yuna who is so thin, it filled her out. I disliked her Sp costume though, and I never felt she got her costumes perfect until Vancouver when they were just about perfection.
I think Korpi is so annoyingly beautiful and I love her dresses. I wish Vera Wang would design something for Ashley. It'd be nice to see what she'd come up with for one of the top ladies, or have I missed something?
Agree with you on Yu Na's Les Mis dress. The tones are subtle yet up close one can really see texture and attention to details which are both appropriate (for the music/theme) and flattering.
I'm with you--I didn't like the unitard. I preferred the dress Carolina wore earlier in the season with that program.

Rejoicing in the land of Kwan
I've already compiled my list of SP and FS dresses from THIS season (I'll post both on my blog later next month) but I'd have to really sit down and think about the last 4 years...that's a lot of fabric and sequins to consider!
