The new skating fashions are simply lovely but I had nothing to do with the Olympics this time because of Russian stance on gays, women, and animals.

Thank you for sharing Carrie. I haven't even watched the Olympics this year because of Russia's stance on so many things. I love figure skating, and some of the costumes were beautiful. (It was my dream at one time to be a figure skater, but others thought I should play hockey when it wasn't cool for women Lol) Putin was in so many of the pictures in the slide show???

I see that the costumes the stars wear are very similar to the skaters. I feel sorry for Yuna Kim being compared to Hanoi Jane. The skater's costume is to reflect their music. I know that means keeping up with the times, but I often wish that skating would go back about 20-30 years and bring back not only the pretty and ladylike/gentlemanlike costumes but the beauty of skating. The Olympics are as political as the Oscars and as I don't watch the Oscars, you will know that I watched very little of the Olympics.
