Wait, I’m getting this mental image of a skier in a sequined leotard. Wish you could see it, it is hilarious! Picture Will Ferrell’s and Jon Heder’s outfit in Blades of Glory (2007), and now envision that costume with a helmet and skis. Oh, even worse, Snowboard Cross participants! That would be so very wrong!
Ooh! Pretty!Caydee Denney and Jeremy Barrett of United States, Figure Skating
Beautiful details on her dress!Vanessa James and Yannick Bonheur of France, Figure Skating
I love graded colour on a fabric. I really have to try my hand at that dyeing technique.Anabellee Langlois and Cody Hay of Canada, Figure Skating
Graded dyes is not only a trend in fashion, it seams to be one in Figure Skating costumes too!Stacey Kemp and David King of Great Britain, Figure Skating
I love the look of that dress: it looks adapted from some princess dress.
They are wearing what?
Jessica Dubé and Bryce Davison of Canada, Figure Skating
I love Dubé & Davison. How can anyone not feel for them, especially after that horrible accident? But to wear greenish grey military colours and a very plain dress for the Olympics just seems sad.
Having said that, I liked to neckline and collar on that dress and would very happily use them for a cocktail dress... in another colour.
Oh dear... Taking the theatrical aspect too far, are we?Maylin Hausch and Daniel Wende of Germany, Figure Skating
If this was a Cleopatra number in an Ice Show, these would be awesome costumes. I especially love the way his looks somewhat like a lorica. But for the Olympics? Really?Maylin Hausch and Daniel Wende (Germany) - Figure Skating (Pairs Short Program)
This looks like a Disco Dance costume more than a Figure Skating costume (although I have to admit, the two can look pretty similar sometimes). It makes me want to sing Tico-tico!
You know, just because you are USAns, you don't have to dress in Cow-Boy fringes! Otherwise, it looks nice.
Turquoise! (Yes, my favourite colour gets a category of its own.)Amanda Evora and Mark Ladwig of United States, Figure Skating

And now for the couples who won medals, let's begin with Bronze:
Boring, but better than your clown costume.
Silver...Qing Pang and Jian Tong of China, Figure Skating
This was not only my favourite costume, I thought they skated better than anyone else. I was actually disappointed that they didn't get Gold.
Hot pink, Black and white? You're doing good so far.Xue Shen and Hongbo Zhao of China, Figure Skating
