I've always loved both that program and costume. Incidentally, that maroon dress reminds me of the crushed velvet leotards gymnasts used to wear in the mid-90s. My how fashion times have changed.

Butyrskaya - Otonal (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n67pXhfRfd0) This was the second ladies program to come to mind for me right after Chen Lu's 1996. I was just about to mention it .

I loved this costume and I think this, along with the program, were different looks for Michelle:

That program is strange to me. I can't see the skating relating to the music..

the dress was good though.

I listed it in the OP.

I too like these costumes. They had worn the white/cream color costumes many times in the past, for other programs. The only difference in the program I noticed was the pairs spin at the end.

I think I was in the minority on the program but I loved the dress. The thing is that sometimes I look at costumes and wonder how they would look if the design was adapted for an evening gown or a dress. When I saw that particular costume I instantly wanted it as a dress (if not evening gown.)

I listed it in the OP.:wall: Indeed you did. :o


The only difference in the program I noticed was the pairs spin at the end.That's the main difference. I think the step sequence had a few minor differences as well, but I really liked the final spin and ending of the Trophee Lalique version.

I agree with most mentioned. One of my favourite ladies sp's ever is from Lu Chen in the '95-'96 season, this is my favourite performance of it:

I love that costume, it's prettier than the one she had later in the season, imho. Some people thought it was too simple - almost like a training dress someone once mentioned - and not suitable for a competition, but I love it and would like to see more of these kind of designs during competitions.

I loved the '98-'99 fd costumes of Bourne/Kraatz as well, that is to say, the one they had early in the season:

Totmianina/Marinin had lovely simple costumes in 2004:

May be Tamara thought the one they used for the final spin in SLC would be considered more difficult? I liked both; can't really choose, but I agree about those blue costumes- they were lovely.

Agree. And I like the costumes they wore for Meditation at the GPF in Kitchener better than the ones they wore at the Olympics.
