The dark blue dress Nicole Bobek wore for her Dr. Zhivago program is a favorite of mine. Actually, the white peasant-style dress she wore for the SP that year was a winner as well.
I thought the shimmery, champagne colored Vera Wang Nancy Kerrigan wore for the LP at the 1994 Olys was a knockout. Speaking of '94, I loved the costume Josse Chouinard wore for her Gershwin program. I loved the way the skirt on that outfit moved. It wasn't wispy like so many of the skirts are; it had a little more substance or weight. When it twirled up it stood out from her body and formed a little undulating circle.
Lu Chen went through a stage in the mid 1990s when she wore costumes with simple leotard-style bodices. They looked almost like a ballet dancers practice outfit. I always liked those dresses on Lulu; they were a refreshing contrast to the sparkly look.
I've noticed that some of the men go for a pedestrian style, like "I've just come in off the street in my
t-shirt and jeans and decided to skate." I'm fond of this look myself, although I realize it may be a way of shouting to the world, "I'm not a gay sissy-boy in a frilly outfit". Remember how Urmanov was pilloried for his 'Sir Walter Raleigh goes to the bath house' costume?
Still, if a skater has a good build, those simple,
form hugging t-shirts and pants make him look like Stanley Kowalski -- if he'd just get a couple of tatoos and roll up a pack of Marlboros in his shirt sleeve.
Sorry for the long post. I have to go soak my fingers in ice water now. :lol:
Michelle Kwan Red Violin dress.
Michelle Kwan '02 Rach dress
the most ugly ever!!!!
sorry C&S fans this one takes the cake
Sorry SRS, but there are WAY worse costumes than that one of C&S's. It looks appropriate for a folk dance. The really awful ones have fake skin, feathers, and look like they've gone through the shredder.
Haven't we been through this thread umpteen times already???? When I get to it, I'll post some way uggo costumes so you can see what a TRULY ugly costume is! C&S don't even come close!
..Maybe we can combine this costume thread and bring back the animal one........I miss it........42
KBW, I bet Pasha burned that costume.looooooooool
What do you think of these lovely costumes? It's Denise, in case you can't guess.
Make way for the gladiators! Babs & Gags lead the charge!
This is called garbage chic (can you believe they actually PAID someone to make these costumes?):
Most Ugly - has to be the outfits worn by Russian dance team - B&B in the 88 Olympics in Calgary. Horrible!
