After a quick break from ice fucking and defying the laws of physics and such, figure skating, the marquee sport of the Winter Olympics, returned with a lot of sartorial headaches and a couple of standouts.

If they’re members of the corps in a speculative ballet about death,
Evgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov look as. I’m actually, TRULY caring this spangled Jazz Age-esque ‘stume on Aljona Savchenko, however Bruno Massot has actually come down with figure skating’s regrettable propensity to make the guys appear like waiters. In some way I do not dislike Natalia Zabiiako‘s vision of lilac, however it requires more glamour and it’s uncertain exactly what her partner Alexander Enbert did to make their customer upset, however I hope he says sorry. Valentina Marchei is using a table linen and Ondrej Hotarek would like to understand if he can clear your plate.
YES. SURE. ZZZ. ONE-PIECE SUIT !! Image: Getty
Vanessa James is genuinely radiant in this bright-ass blue, however I want to rip through the computer system screen and tear that blue strip of garbage off Morgan Cipres‘s top simultaneously! Julianne Seguin is actually simply great and her partner Charles Bilodeau’s leading draws. Please stop putting male figure skaters in these odd high-V neck ensembles !!! Show me chest to the bellybutton or NOTHING at all. Moving along. Alexa Scimeca Knierim’s naked sequined surge is good, and PROPS to her partner Chris for NOT using black, however for using NAVY. Yes! I understand it matches the sash! I’m here! For! It! I’m likewise quite ici for North Korean figure skaters Tae Ok Ryom and Ju Sik Kim‘s matching onesies, though I do want individuals would stop pulling their leggings over their skates.

Cheng Peng’s red sparkler has stylish sequins, and I can not take a look at another guy dressed like a waiter, sorry Yang Jin. The beading on Kyueun Kim‘s outfit makes it appear she has indigestion, and HELLO Alex Kang Chan Kam, yes, that lace sleeve! Australia’s Paige Conners is beautiful in sherbet chiffon, however Evgeni Krasnopolsk’s top is another terrible error. I would like to keep in mind that sets figure skaters do not require to be dressed like similar twins, as evidenced plainly by Anna Duskova and Martin Bidar.
Whatever here is primarily great other than for one.
Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford are type of boring in this black scenario, however a minimum of it’s not a regrettable halter! The worst appearance of the night is this odd lavender and pink and white catastrophe on Nicole Della Monica and Matteo Guarise; the shimmers appear like black mold !! This is stressful: matchy-matchy black and red for Kirsten Moore-Towers and Michael Marinaro, BUT I LOVE THE SHEER PANELS ON Ruben Blommaert!!!! His partner Annika Hocke looks staid.

I do not care if black and navy are NOT expected to be used together, I believe it looks trendy on Kristina Astakhova’s flying body and I enjoy the slash of sequin on her partner Alexei Rogonov. Miraim Ziegler is providing me early 2000 s senior prom gown and it’s terrific; Severin Kiefer’s attire made me go to sleep. Black and sequins and lycra and velour and oh my god, I’m asleep, ok, sorry Ekaterina Alexandrovskaya and Harley Windsor!!!! AND FINALLY AHHHH, these mid-tone blues on Miu Suzaki and Ryuichi Kihara pop good versus the purp of the arena however advise me of a Land’s End turtleneck.
