US Nationals 2017 fashion review: ladies short program
Today’s fashion minute is dedicated to ladies short program at US National Championships 2017. In this section of my blog I don’t care how good or bad you skated, fashion is the only thing that matters)
So here’s my list of best dresses:
Unfortunately I haven’t found good photos of her from Nationals( So here’s video and it’s possible to see the dress from all sides)
As I said before, if you want to read some pleasant comments about your costumes on Fs-gossips, wear something vinous) Fs-gossips keeps promises. Ok, I’m just kidding. This dress is really very nice and would have got into my chart even if it had been black/blue/green or of any other adequate shade. I like that there’s almost no finishing, so we can appreciate the beauty of color, fabric and lines. I also liked the cuffs, we don’t see many cuffs now in figure skating dresses. Cuffs can highlight the work of your arms, don’t forget about that. The back reminds me of Gracie Gold’s dress for OG14 but who said that you can’t use some great ideas for your own costumes?
When you’re so young and fresh don’t hide behind tons of finishing and sequins. Because any finishing won’t be more charming than your own natural beauty. That’s why I really liked Tessa’s choice of the dress. Simple white dress, with delicate tiny finishing on the bodice, it only highlighted her youth, tenderness and purity.
I remember this dress from last season, so I guess she kept her program) This dress also reminds me of Gracie Gold’s dresses and Brad Griffies‘ designs. Lovely elegant dress for a young lady. But I wish she would follow Graсie’s example not only in dresses but also in approach to hairstyle and make up. Bradie, you’re such a beautiful girl, you have everything to look like a star, so make it happen!
I have already discussed this dress here. Lovely, playful dress! In “white dress” trend of this season) I love how her skirt is moving in tact with music! That’s exactly what such programs need, it really helps to create the dancing mood. This time she had a nice hair accessory, but still I wish she went with a complete hairdo in the style of 20-30th.
First of all I love the absence of red and black color combination for a tango dress) Ah and no rose in her hair! Great start) The dress is hot but despite plunging neck line it doesn’t look vulgar. As always Gracie was attentive to details, like hairstyle, makeup and jewelry. Of course you’re going to ask why such great dress and attentive to details look not at the top of my ranking. Well, the dress is cool, but it’s not for Gracie’s body type.
Fabulous, sexy, sparkling dress! Dress for a super-confident girl. I love everything about this dress! Everything except two things) First: I don’t really like bright blue underlayer, it looks like part from some other dress. Just remove it and make this underlayer of the same color. Second: every time Ashley and Marissa compete at the same competition I start to think whose idea was first and who borrowed it)
Fabulous dress! You know I’m not a fan of much of finishing, because it usually costs a lot, but look cheap and tasteless. This one is just stunning, made with lots of taste and has an expensive look. Love the dark purple shade! Oh and the nude illusion mesh is absolutely invisible! The dress for a queen! But I still dream of a beautiful hairdo for Mirai.
