    Agree. If Alissa's dress had been any color but white I think it would have been stunning.

    Agree... That was absolutely terrible to look at, and it was probably the only time I disliked one of her dresses

    That's the thing that made Alissa's dress not only ugly, but puzzling: she was always dressed so beautifully in the past. If I had paid mega-buck$ (and she undoubtedly did) for that mess, I'd have headed back to the closet and recycled the dress below for that program.

    Yes, Piper is very into fashion design (she's studying it at Ryerson University), so she was happy when Nick Verreos sent her a message telling her how much he liked her dress.

    Piper's program in fashion design is quite different from Paul's degree in linguistics. 3 years ago I wasn't sure these two would click because Paul is more cerebral and nerdy with all the languages stuff, etc. but they ending up having better chemistry together than they did with their prior partners. So sometimes the differences between two partners end up complementing each other well. I've noticed this in other teams, too.

    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?

    Still there should be one or two - most mind blowing ones

    There's another "costumes" thread started a few weeks ago; maybe Mods can combine?

    Posted in the earlier thread, but Alexei Urmanov just came to mind so here I go again! He was never one of my faves but I actually think his costumes had something to do with it -- most seemed fussy and distracting to me, sometimes downright silly.

    His costumes seem somewhat theatrical, something that maybe belongs on the stage rather than on ice. That is the feeling I get from his costumes.

    I've been also wondering - is there such thing as fashion trends in ice skating? I've been mostly dealing with ballroom dancing world and there are definitely such thing as fashion trends there. Even though any dancer is looking to get something unique and special there are certain styles that usually followed. Skating as well as gymnastics is very much built around the specific performance, it's much more individualistic. So its very likely that any costume would work as long as it is working with the dance. But can you say, looking at the costume, that it looks outdated?
