^^Someone just needs to start a "Dear Rachael..." thread and fill it with suggestions. With the right music, makeup, hair, dress and choreography, Rachael would be ten times better than what she is right now...

I've suggest several times, on no less than 3 figure skating forums, what Rachael could do to help her aesthetic appeal on the ice, everything from style and color of her dresses, to her hair color to her music...

Of course, it's easy for us to sit at home and suggest stuff but, being spectators, at the very least we know what we'd like to see. She needs a change and I'm really hoping California will help her shed her frumpy look and go for something a bit fresher and younger...

I'm really not into this too much but if I were to make one suggestion to her re. looks, it would be to grow her hair long again.

I seriously question the judgement of that program's costume designer. EoE is a pretty good program but its flaws (and hers) are magnified by that horrible dress. It's not really a subjective thing: she just plain looks bad. She looks great in black (http://images.lifeskate.com/Rachael-Flatt-Rockefeller/11.jpg), and I hope that if she keeps EoE she ditches the yellow screamer for something dark.

Jewel tones would be an improvement.

And maybe a darker hair color. She often looks washed out. Never more so than with the blondish hair and neon highlighter yellow dress :scream:

I think at least go blonde or dark... the in between colour is less that inspiring.
Black dresses would be good. Not everyone has Cohen's frame, but with a better cut and darker colours, Rachel would look a lot slimmer.

Has she actually mentioned that she's keeping it, though, or just not mentioned getting a new one?
Flatt hasn't said anything about a new SP. I think people are just assuming she's keeping EoE.


Do skaters & choreographers generally create two new programs at the same time?
Not necessarily.

I always thought she might look good with darker hair, maybe this (http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://newcool-hairstyles.com/wp-content/uploads/alexis-bledel-auburn-low-knotted-hairstyle.jpg&imgrefurl=http://newcool-hairstyles.com/long-hairstyles/hair-color-trends-2011.html&usg=__BiRCdMt8dETL5fqx8whzr2oTlrg=&h=503&w=400&sz=21&hl=en&start=16&zoom=1&tbnid=HwR9ZLr_kqtLNM:&tbnh=159&tbnw=126&ei=YEEcTrv_Js7TgAePmcnzCQ&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dauburn%2Bhair%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DX%26bi w%3D1035%26bih%3D678%26site%3Dwebhp%26tbm%3Disch&itbs=1&iact=hc&vpx=383&vpy=200&dur=4097&hovh=252&hovw=200&tx=123&ty=221&page=2&ndsp=16&ved=1t:429,r:12,s:16&biw=1035&bih=678)color or this (http://www.flash-screen.com/free-wallpaper/free,wallpapers,23665/download,1280x1024,attractive+Anne+Hathaway.html)c olor. Because she is pale with a slight peachy color, that color of blonde Rachael has washes her out completely. I think something darker with a little color would create a nice contrast with her skin...and it'd definitely make her stand out more.

And I agree, she needs to grow her hair back now. That cut she has works nice for everyday wear; but the wind-blown soccer mom look isn't very appealing on the ice...:rolleyes:

Considering the score Rachael got for he step sequence base value 3.9, goe 1.85---the highest of the ladies---I don't think she is going to want to mess around with it. Evidently the judges didn't mind the bees!!! lol

I think it helped her IN score, too. My interpretation is that she's in happily in Eden in a sunny dress, but those pesky bees ,having mistaken her for the world's biggest sunflower, are chasing her to go East! :)

I am intrigued by the idea of a darker hair color as well.

I want to know who her coach is. She should have found one by now. The suspense is killing me.

I'm sure she'll let us know when she wants to let us know. ;)

;-) Just to revisit the Ladies step sequence (bees or not, LOL!) video montage from 2011 Worlds, Leonova (2.44 pts), V. Helgesson, J. Helgesson, Korpi, Czisny, Vanut, Hecken, Makarova, Gedevanishvili, Murakami, Phaneul, Asada, Kostner, Ando, Kim, thru Flatt (5.76).

Y'know. I've never belonged to a board so creative in its snarkiness :lol: It's why I love it here ...

Jesus, and some wonder why there are those who question that fs is a sport (hair color discussion).

FunnyBut, lol maybe some bee repellant will help. lmao
