    The only issue I have with Gracie's look is that she just needs to make sure her dresses cover her chest without close calls...just bring the fabric up a little higher and then start the illusion fabric if she wants... Otherwise, I think once she's really feeling more confident and consistent in skating competitions, she'll blossom and be able to portray exactly what she wants. She just needs some more experience and opportunities to learn how to connect to the audience. I feel like her coldness partly comes from nerves...As someone who can come off as snobby or as my sister dubbed me years ago - "the ice princess," I think she may just need to get more comfortable with her position now.

    plushyfan I bet!! I can't imagine how cute he must be as a puppy right now!

    Yup...loved her SP dress (especially that particular shade of red ) but can you imagine if she'd had a Janet Jackson-type wardrobe malfunction @ the Olys? OMG, quel Twitter meltdown!

    I think/hope that as she gets more comfortable w/ herself and the changes Frank is making, her on-ice persona will become more authentic and less plastered-on (as in pageant-y).

    Doesn't matter. I am specifically referencing a Tibetan in my class who CLEARLY has a mind of his own and frustrates his handler/owner to no end. That being said, I had a Aussie that I lost last year to cancer and she was daddy's (Mr. Mskater) little princess to whom he could never say no. We have two other dogs (one we got after we lost Menina) and he has no problems telling either no.

    Someone (was it earlier in this thread??) suggested that Carly Gold could become the next Karen Kwan. I have to admit that made me giggle a bit. (I must add, I have a lot of respect for Karen Kwan as a person, businesswoman, and even skater!)

    Same, I'm no fan of Gracie Gold (I think she brings nothing new to the table and that she doesn't understand the music she skates to at all) but I hated how she got put on the spot like that. She looked like she wanted to run when he suddenly appeared in front of her and asked her to prom, so awkward for her.

    Of course she wasn't going. I knew that from the start.

    The fact that she opened with "If it works out," should have given everyone a big clue, to be honest. There was no way she was going to go.

    Yeah from what I've read that seemed like an ambush through and through to put the guy in one of her interviews. She's trying to help get people interested to the sport but not necessarily in that way. I don't blame the guy since he seems sincerely starstruck and you know, he's a high-schooler and all, but I blame the producers for being so crass for publicity. Fortunately Gracie had enough social manners to know how to respond to it "If it works out...".

    I don't see Gracie as being too princess-y. She has more of a sweet, social, friendly, girl-left-door vibe for me, although maybe that is the princess-y look for some people. Ashley has more of a high school popular cheerleader feel for her face. Obviously neither of them can really change their facial structure, but I do think Ashley puts her look to good use in programs like Samson and Delilah. I haven't followed either of them that closely but from what I've seen so far it seems like Ashley is more positioning herself for Hollywood glamour compared with Gracie, while Gracie focuses less on polishing her interview skills etc. and more on her skating (i.e. interviewing is more of a "comes with the territory" type of thing for being one of the best, rather than something she relishes or that comes naturally).

    I thought the topic was Princess Gracie and now it has veered off into the subject of dogs! Soooo, I have had only one dog (an Irish setter) in my entire life and guess what? Her name was Princess!

    Exactly. That's how I knew. Of course it wasn't going to "work out".

    "This experience has been absolutely amazing and hopefully my relationship with Ms. Gold will continue for years to come."

    Wow, "relationship"?! This guy better be careful... sky_fly will be pissed if anyone tries to get between her and her Gracie.

    "relationship?" Yuck...the guy sounds like possible stalker material to me. Maybe sky_fly could get a gig as Gracie's bodyguard? Or Gracie could adopt a Doberman; her little Japanese Chin is a honey but as a watchdog, fuhgeddaboudit.

    Sheesh, again w/ the doggie stuff! "Skaters' Pets" thread, anyone?
