    Katarina's 1988 Controversial Attire

    Does anyone know where I can see the costume that Katarina Witt wore to the 1988 European Championships that generated so much controversy? I have heard about it in the past, and I have never seen it. My curiosity is piqued.

    Thanks!

    I haven't got a link but I do remember it! It was the same sp costume as the Olympics but by the time she got to Calgary LOTS more feathers had been added

    Glacier, if you want to see a picture of Kat in the outfit, check out the thread on the LA Fashion magazine. There is a link posted near the end of the first page.
