    With no immaculate Kiira who was spotless this year there were many good ones still. I liked Caro's Sp dress it was perfect. Another fave was Julia's sp dress. Ditto Yuna, sp.

    I hated several but leave that to others to see if taste is shared.

    Best: A tie between Yulia Lipnitskaya LP (I really love the whole Schindler's List "Girl in red" costume) and Gracie Gold SP.
    Kaetlyn Osmond LP is pretty too and Yuna's LP
    Worst: Adelina LP is a BIG NO in my book! her SP is not pretty either!

    Boys
    Boys: Jeremy Abbott SP, Hanyu SP and Patrick SP (I like simple on boys, less is more)
    Worst: Poor Hanyu but her LP's costume is a mess.

    I enjoy threads that encourage anonymous people to assert their opinions on purely subjective matters.

    ^Oh, please do pull that stick out of your behind.

    Half of skating is subjective, yet here we all are asserting our opinions.

    ...especially when it's fashion-related.

    Best: Anna C. SD, Vera B. SP, Akiko... Quite a few actually.

    Worst: Too many to choose from.

    Because as we all know, the purpose of figure skating forums is to encourage objective discussion between learned, easily identifiable experts.

    Best: Marchei's costumes; Lipnitskaya's FS costume was suitable, distinctive and memorable; Hurtado/Diaz's FD costumes were interesting and fit their program really well; Cappellini/Lanotte's SD costumes were the cutest. Akiko Suzuki is always well-dressed and I was partial to Mao Asada's dramatic and unusual FS dress.

    I thought Gracie's styling this year was awful, and that her FS dress - which I am sure was expensive - somehow managed to look cheap and ill-fitting, especially in the back. Also, the bun needed to be lower and the red lipstick didn't suit her at all. Basically, I think Gracie can be much more interesting than the princess persona Carroll is trying to foist on her.

    But there were far worse costumes this past season than her's.

    Maybe you should start such a forum. I am sure that it will result in much lively discussion.

    Yes, Akiko is my costume queen!

    Also, I like Mao's Gala costume very much.

    Best and worst costumes you've seen

    Hi everyone!

    I was just curious to know - what in your opinion was the most beautifully-designed costume, one that really took your breath away? And also what was the worst design you've seen on a skater?
