    I really dislike white costumes on figure skaters. They get totally lost against the ice. Never could figure out why they keep dressing the women in white. Akiko's dress was gorgeous - just wish it had been a different color. Even a pale yellow or a pale green with that beautiful beading.

    Hey noskates! maybe they wear white to complement the program? Like in Mao's LP last year or Soyoun's SP this year I particularly like Soyoun's because the details on her dress is exquisite in my opinion.

    I totally agree with you regarding Soyoun's dress! The detailing is the colour for white costumes. On the topic of detailing on white costumes, I adore Julia's white dress from last season. Again, exquisite detailing, and use of sheerness on some parts of the costume provides a nice, albeit subtle, contrast.

    I agree ! White is the last color i'd choose for a dress. Mao Asada's last year LP dress was lovely, but while it suited the theme, it was too much white on the ice.

    I prefered her SP dress The program was very dynamic, it was different than what she usually does.

    Talking about something different, Akiko Suzuki's last year SP dress was cool (i looooved her program) !!! And her first LP dress this year was so much more beautiful than the others, i was disappointed that she changed it.

    I liked too many to list them all but the ones that come to mind immediately are:
    Yulia's SP dress, my favorite because I'm more partial to dark blue-purplish colours.
    Yulia's LP dress, the red coat dress fits the music and theme perfectly and got better as the season went on, when Yulia and her mother made changes to it.

    Tessa & Scott's Olympic FD costumes, the outfits in the individual event were incredible, their skate was beyond magical, completely sublime and I can't believe they lost, let alone by the landslide the scores show.

    V/T's SP Masquerade, I watched for the first time at the Olympics, costumes added to their performance.

    Kaitlyn & Andrew's SD, I loved that shade of blue and the tap-dancing section was wonderful.

    Mao's SP dress WC, perfect dress for the perfect SP.

    I can't think of any others at the moment, oh, Anna & Luca's FD costumes were amazing.

    Normally i don't think that white costumes looks good on white ice, but there is for me an exception:Kulik's Romeo costume http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXy7qBMvvOM

    Favorites:
    Meryl's pink SD dress (pre-Olympics)
    Yuna's chartreuse SP
    Ashley's yellow LP
    Natalia Popova's fuchsia LP, gorgeous but overlooked (http://www2.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/N...OB7z8Jt3Al.jpg)

    Not-So-Favorites:
    Yulia's "red coat" LP, it was unique for sure, and suited the music but to me it was poorly executed, like she had accidentally left her practice jacket on
    Adelina's SP and LP
    Gracie's blue LP, too aging

    I'd probably like that one more if they had put it on a skater who is at least somewhat close to legal age

    This thread is fun...

    Ok.
    Best from this season:
    Davis and White LP
    Mao LP
    Yuzuru LP, normal looking clothes disguise how skinny he is
    Yulia LP, she looked perfect for the program

    Worst.
    Kevin Reynolds, I agree with the person that saids he needs a new haircut.
    Yuzuru LP, love him but he needs a restriction order agains Johnny Weir desings
    Misha Ge http://www.zimbio.com/photos/Misha+G...ng/MprSrJiVu3o

    Anyway about the worst dress ever, nobody should get this award except a person who is very costant with the bad costumes:

    Best Ice Dance costumes this year: Gilles & Poirier's Hitchcock FD.

    Fashion designer Nick Verreos named them as among the best of the season:

    Another one of my favorite Ice Dance costumes were worn by Canada's Gilles and Poirier. They skated to a "Hitchcock" medley and wore the above costumes in black with silver accents. Perfect; sublime and oh-so-good! Oh and yes, their Free Skate was one of my Top All-time FAVORITES of the entire season!

    Kevin Reynolds needs more than a haircut! How about a stylist? But I read somewhere that he wears his hair that way purposely. Things that make you go "hmmmmmmmmmmmmm"!!!!

    Yeah i really think it's on purpose, since the first time I saw him he wears it that way.

    Somebody told me that Manon Perron once said he would never score in PC (even with better SS) because he doesn't look good. Personally, i believe she's right, though i loved his short program this year (with better SS, and hair, it would have been awesome !)

    I totally agree. My worst white dress goes to Alissa Czisny in 2012. I loved her skating so much, and her struggling with her hip problem was so hard to watch. But this dress was just
