    Looks like Johnny has some Lady GaGa competition, or is Mao auditioning for the Theatricality episode of GLEE?

    Q. Why did the chicken cross the road?
    A. It was attached to Mao.

    She looks great aside from the roadkill stuck to her middle.

    Mao herself looks lovely but the dead rotting chicken needs to go.

    The first thing I thought when I saw the picture was "Did she borrow that from Johnny?"

    Mao is pretty, but this is just bad. She really needs help with styling, on and off the ice.

    I know this is not how she normally dresses, but that doesn't make it less unfortunate looking.

    The high heels are cool, the dead chicken is hideous.

    Anyway, Mao likes animals. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lR9wfn94-VI

    Mao's pretty, but she looks hot in the photo!

    :swoon:

    Her style off-ice isn't the best, but most of her skating costumes are beautiful.

    Or you could say the Vogue stylist doesn't follow fashion trends.
    She/he is the one who chose that outfit.
    Maybe she/he likes animals. ;)
    Anyway, I want to see the other photos. Then I'd like to decide my opinion.

    More like she set a trap to catch that bird.

    Or maybe she ate Shizuka Arakawa...

    Mao's cute but I'm not digging the feathers, also those pants aren't the most flattering, Mao has lovely long thin legs and you can't really tell in those pants.

    Also the shoes make her feet look like alien feet. How high are those heels?

    ITA. Isn't Mao tall for Japan anyways? She's as tall as all the male skaters so I assume she doesn't need heels.

    She looks mature or more mature than before. Would the look appeal to younger demographic? I am sure that the JSF wants to sell figure skating to them.

    I don't understand fashion in general. Thank God for that.

    Uh, a stylist usually picks out the clothes for a photoshoot, not the person being photographed.

    She looks very uncomfortable, you can see it's not something she is used to.

    Clothes are really cool.

    I don't know. It's like they are trying to force Mao to be something she isn't.
    It's like they are trying to make her ...... sexy.

    That's Vogue Japan's doing.

    I personally hate the chicken fringe but the plain black body-suit alone with a flashy belt would have been fine and I love those shoes.

    Didn't Bjork also have an egg-shaped purse with her that she would drop by "accident"? :D

    Actually, I really like the shoes too. If she just didn't have the chicken, she'd look fantastic.

    A bit OT, but there's some interesting quotes from the interview.
    Asked about frequent use of chokers on her costumes, she says like "Well, it's not really what I wanted, but it seems like Tarasova likes them...." :D
    I'm kinda glad to know that those chokers are not her tastes and hope they'll go away next season. ;)

    They also talked about the new programs and when the interviewer asked her whether she could reveal the other LP song Tarasova offered last season (she chose 'Bells' out of the two TAT prepared for her), she says that she can't tell them because she might use it for the next season. I'm not sure about it, but the writer of that blog thinks it might be this song---->

    It's just a speculation and nothing confirmed yet, but if true, I love it!!!:cheer2:
    (Well, pretty much anything seems like a big improvement after 'Bells'...:D )

    I like the black lace in the other pics but am not sure about the strapless thing--what is it? A dress? A top? A sweater? It could look nice depending on what the rest of it looks like.

    IIRC, she kept six eggs hidden in her dress that she dropped out on the red carpet on "accident" :lol:

    To each his own, but "Bells" was awesome. That being said, I'm not to keen on the idea that she's using TAT or Lori again. My dream team would be Tom Dickson for her SP and Pasquale Camerlengo for her FS. But I guess I'm gonna have to keep dreaming...but yeah, thanks for the translation.
