    First of all I am talking style and not the best skaters.

    In present times, I easily see a toss up between Angela Nikidinov and Vika Volchkova. Both look like they are from a Tolstoy novel.

    In past times, I think it would be Dorothy.

    Which female skater is the most elegant and artistic?

    I voted for Michelle Kwan, who else would I pick. She is my favorite. I also love Peggy Fleming and Dorothy Hamill, they are beautiful skaters with lots of elegance and aritistic style

    I voted for "other" because my three favorite ladies who also happen to be the ones I feel are the most elegant and artistic aren't listed...that would be Kristi Yamaguchi , Sasha Cohen and Nicole Bobek ! I would add Lu Chen to the list too!

    I voted Peggy Fleming she was always very elegant when she skated. Her skating is what got me interested in figure skating when I was a kid.

    This is a tough one. There have been so many great artistic ladies in this sport. The best for me were/are Peggy Fleming, Oksana Baiul, Chen Lu and of course the one I voted for...Michelle Kwan.

    I chose Janet Lynn. I wish I had some of her performances on video.

    Tara had her own style and presence on the ice. She had a youthful boucy style mixed with elegance.

    My vote was for Fleming. Lynn is my favorite Ladies' skater, and while I would call her artistic, I wouldn't call her elegant.

    The only women skating now whose style I would call elegant are in pairs or dance: Berezhnaia, Borzenkova, Berankova, Tiffany Steigler, and Grushina, who manages to show it, even when put in over-the-top choreography. Elizabeth Putnam has her moments, too. Depending on the dance, Kati Winkler could be, and Sasha Cohen did a wonderfully elegant personification of Audrey Hepburn in her COI My Fair Lady routine.

    I think the most elegant singles skater is Neil Wilson of Great Britain, a real throwback to the 60's and 70's, although I haven't seen Roman Serov.
