I did not like the light blue costume that MK wore for the New York/ 1961 Team Exhibition (I know that there is a better name for it). Although the color looked good on her the style made her look like she was about 12...maybe not a disaster but a disappointment. I love the black lace with the royal blue (or purple depending on your television) skirt that she wore for the GPF short program (Rach). Agree about Irina's LP dress from SLC although I don't like the original one with the fake flesh that doesn't match her skin tone, the loose things hanging from it, and the color reminds me of holographic fish skin (is it green, is it purple,is it blue?) either. Irina is so charming. I think that her costumers are really doing her a disservice. That face should be accented and a lot of her dresses seem to be the same style with the spaghetti strap top that seems like the straps are about an inch too long (remember Gwynyth Paltrow's pink Oscar dress?) the same thing! The long skirts with the uneven hem combined with the "droopy" top seem to pull your eye down to her legs...not her best feature but more importantly they take the attention away from her face... her best feature. I also think that those long skirts detract from her speed all of that fabric around the knees makes things look s-l-o-w-e-r again taking away from one of her strengths..her speed and powerful jumps. Maybe the costumers intent was to soften the leg area with the skirts and give a more sophisticated look with the top but IMO the intent was good but the result needs more work.
