Love the silver sparkly vest she wears! Very retro.
Careful! Skate blades are a killer when it comes to making wholes in tights, especially fishnet!
Yu-na looks like a swan in this dress. She is simply gorgeous.
I love this very architectural look. The fan is reminiscent of Japan of course, but what I like the most is the black and hot pin combination.
Beautiful ombre dye skirt! She looks like she is dressed in flower petals.
Turquoise! (Well, ocean blue, really.) Do I need to say anymore?
Straight out of the Matrix!
Yeah... Hmmm. Sorry Pat, you look kind of boring mate!
Angels on Ice!
Raise your hand if you are reminded of the "Sexy Devil" costume found in every pattern books' Halloween section!
Canadians love their Hockey! Even figure skaters know that.
Seeing the a hockey jerseyed man paired with a tutued woman kind of reminds me of Battle of the Blades...Joannie Rochette of Canada, Figure Skating Exhibition Gala
I could not end these two weeks of of Figure Skating posts without speaking one last time of Joannie Rochette. She has become Canada's Sweetheart, a strong young woman that is an example for us all. For this last performance, she skated to Céline Dion's "Vole", originally dedicated to Dion's niece Karine who died of cystic fibrosis at the age of 16 (I remember seeing aunt and niece on Le Club des 100 watts (1988), a kids TV show - they had talked about her disease). So you see, skating to that song had an especially poignant meaning.

Let us see her performance one more time, for posterity's sake.
And now, a blogger's moment of silence translated to written form:
