Figure skating costumes are notoriously ugly…granted, they have to be comfortable and flexible enough to do a triple-axle in, but c’mon! Can’t we get John Galliano or Bagdley Mischka to design a cute skating leotard already?
In honor of the 2006 Olympics in Torino, I would like to nominate Canadian figure skater Joannie Rochette as best dressed figure skater. Her costumes are always totally cute and sassy–not at all what we are used to (think blue spandex and sparkles).
So Joannie, take a bow. Even if you don’t win the gold, you are a winner in our eyes. Way to go!
