The other thing, and I could definitely be wrong about this, but don't a lot/most of the elite figure skaters have stylists? We're all making the assumption that bright red lipstick is Gracie's color of choice....maybe she's been told that's what she should wear?
And I'm all for Charlie's hair having it's own hashtag. LOVE the curly mop.

I spent a long time looking at pictures of Gracie trying to figure out why I didn't like her look. It was a classic red lip and a classic top knot on a pretty girl, whyyyyyyyyyy.... do I not like this? I should like this.
I don't think there's anything wrong with Gracie's hair or lips individually, but they look too severe when put together with the high collar of the blue dress. If she had kept the lip but loosened or lowered the bun, or kept the high and tight bun but had a more natural lip, it would have looked much softer. I DO think her eyebrows are too dark if she's going to be a light blond. Also, if her roots had not been so obvious the look would have gelled better. (Aside: Gracie had more important things to worry about, but I'm honestly flummoxed that Cover Girl didn't do anything about that. I know they're a makeup and not a hair company, but hair and makeup play off each other and you don't want your spokesperson going on international TV looking anything less than shiny penny polished.)
I liked Radionova's bun because it was a little too large- it looked off kilter and spunky, which matched the wild costume she was wearing.
Ashley rocked the hell out of that high ponytail in the SP, but I felt the bun in the LP elongated her already long face. It was a good choice to wear it loose.
Landing 3As in my dreams!
Spot on! I kept thinking it was just the dress that made her look too old, but you're absolutely right that the real culprit was the combination.
