    Agreed. It looks like a negligee, and that silhouette is awful.

    Regarding Adelina's LP dress, yes, it is totally a disaster. She looked like wearing a see-through with no underwear. Very inappropriate for any age, let alone a young girl. In addition, it isn't flattering.

    Hanyu needs to dump that LP dress. Patrick Chan's LP shirt is unflattering and the embellishment does not embellish. I like his 2012 LP and shirt better. Han Yan's both costumes need overhaul. The SP's does not fit the character he tried to portrait, some kind of street wears may be better . The LP one is not Waltzy if that's a word. He should have a classic shirt like the ones in old movies that can showoff his speed or a stylish tuxedo.

    I like P/B's costume. Love the Russian dancers' black swan costumes and their program, by far the second best after D/W's FD to me. Like V/T's SP custume and P/T's LP
    's. P/T's SP costume are pretty but just a bit too heavy, and I don't like P's messy hair do.

    OK, I don't like Caro's costumes, especially the LP. The SP see-through is not bad, but just so so.

    I would actually like Patrick's LP shirt more if he were wearing an undershirt under it. Both outfits of his are fairly understated considered the costumey, glittery neon messes we're seeing everywhere. I'm wondering if it's deliberate, where he's essentially saying look at my skating and not what I'm wearing.

    And I want to rip that blue glove off Anna P and burn it.

    It's funny; this thread reminded me of a comment about one of Tara Lipinski's outfits, which I vaguely recall as a long-sleeved lacy dress. While it was entirely appropriate for her age at the time, it was on the fussy side, and one writer described it something like this: "I am going to my first communion, and I intend to yodel."

    So you can't please everyone, no matter what you do.

    Olympia, can you imagine what kinds of comments these costumes would get on Project Runway? There seems to be some law that at least 85% of all Russian skating costumes must exhibit a certain level of tackiness. And they want to get rid of gay men! Coincidence? I think not...

    By the way, you may not know but Project Runway veteran Nick Verreos has been critiquing the costumes of all the Grand Prix skaters on his blog here: http://nickverrreos.blogspot.com/

    And what's with every Russian girl wearing gloves? Did Putin put out some sort of national edict, or what?

    Speaking of gloves...does anyone know why Adelina is wearing tan gloves in her LP? Just...why?

    The young Russian girls look like someone sewed some random strips of fabric to a skirt and called it a day, not a good look. B/S look like your stereotypical Russian ice dancers from the 90's, with the shredded fabric and OTT emoting. I don't know, maybe it's the Olympic year? Even Meryl and Charlie, who are usually more subdued in costuming, have gone OTT.

    On the other end of the spectrum, R/T's costumes are bland as bland can me, and have absolutely nothing to do with Phantom of The Opera. At least W/P and D/W dressed the part when they skated to Phantom.

    How would you guys compare Adelina FS costume with Elizaveta's Oskana Domina hand me down outfit at 2012 GPF?

Plus I swear my thigh is bigger than that boy's body and I'm not overweight. He's sooooo slight. I've never much liked Kostner's costumes but her LP isn't bad. I love Gracie's LP and I think Ashley's dress for TEB was beautiful. Akiko Suzuki always has a beautiful dress, very classy.

    Hanyu's "dress or some odd shredded corset thing" just made me LOL. So true! So true!
    I am not sure if it is a Japanese thing but Dai and Hanyu and company look like they fought with Jackson Pollock and Edward Scissorhead with a few rabid cats thrown in for good measure and lost! Dramatic I suppose? Vera Wang - not.People control your urge to roll around in sequins and sharp knives. It is not a good look. And control your urge to wear yellow pants for some reason I think you are wearing depends under those things.

    Forgot to say that I love Julia L's red coat costume and the program. I bet this would be the Russian girl on the podium or even steal the show in Sochi.
