I think it's a nice look for off-ice (seems like every girl her age is all about red lips) and for certain programs, but there were times it felt so out of place. Her look is so specific--very 1940s, and with her fondness for printed scarves and button-down shirts rolled up at the sleeve, I'm betting she has a Rosie the Riveter poster somewhere. It didn't go at all with her Gershwin SP for example; Three Preludes is from the mid 1920s. I wonder if had she gone all out with the thin drawn-on brows and Clara Bow lips, perhaps the screechy music could've had a slightly warmer reception (by making sure the program was perceived as a period piece as opposed to generic pretty music, which it is NOT). At the very least she could've gone for the Hollywoodized version of the 1920s look and copied Carey Mulligan in The Great Gatsby (in fact Carey has the same hair/eyes/skin coloring as GG).

The bun is the most practical hairstyle for skaters. Sometimes skaters go for the windblown hairstyles for angsty themes, but how do they skate with hair in their faces going 20 miles an hour? It's not comfortable. It's itchy. It may even hurt.
