    Who was it saying she's too big? Girl hasn't got an ounce of fat on her!
    She looks lovely :)

    She looks so much better in that dress than in her skating dresses. She's actually quite pretty and very fit, she just desperately needs a new costume designer!

    Start with that design for her next skating dress. MUCH more flattering than her usual. . . She looks fab!

    That dress design is very flattering on her. She should go in that direction with her skating costumes.

    the design was flattering, but that color washes her out. I think that she should have chosen it in a more vibrant color.

    Something tells me Rachael was going to do whatever she had to do to look GREAT in that gown. Darn, now I want to see her date!

    The child does love pastels. She certainly isn't big. Good for her for having a life outside skating.

    I think the reason that Rachael look "skater fat" is that she does not have a very defined waist, she is simply not very curvy below the bust. If she wore something with an empire waist like this or this or this it would be very flattering. Also richer colours are better, the pale colours just wash her out, I have the same problem and stay well away from pastels.

    she looks beautiful. That is a wonderful style for her. Would love to see her skate in something like that in a dusty kind of purple

    I always thought of Rachael as being adorable and cute. But she has crossed the threshold into beautiful.

    I'd have to say I think it's because she's short (she doesn't have long limbs or a long torso) and her arms and legs don't have the most visible muscle definition, but I actually think some of that might be do to her just being bigger boned than a lot of the thin asian ladies who have come to dominate skating. As you can see in that prom dress, she has no fat on her stomach and has a little waist.

    She is not big, but she seems big on ice because of her dresses and of her posture. If she had better lines and a better dresses I bet it would be different ;)

    Anyway, glad for her! Hope she had a great time!

    I loved her LP dress from last year, the cut was very flattering and the royal blue color went perfectly with her blonde hair and fair skin, at nationals when MAC did her makeup she looked beautiful just like she does in the prom pic :)

    Can we please see this hair and make-up on the ice? She looks lovely and like a teenager here. Please...transfer it and stop channeling Aunt Bea when you skate!

    She is gorgeous! I know everyone else already said this, but I totally agree that she should style herself like that on the ice. I think a dress similar in style to her prom dress and maybe in a dark blue, purple, or green would look great on her. I know blonds are typically supposed to wear warm colors, but I actually think cool or dark colors are more flattering for her, such as her Fame exhibition dress and long program dress from last year.

    She looks gorgeous!!! The dress is beautiful, and the side-bangs are a good look for her--they really flatter her face.

    Isn't it early for prom season?

    NO, NO, NO to the empire waist idea. That would just make it look like she was fat again. Something that goes out to her shoulders (see the wide-set straps on her prom gown? perfect) and has a fuller skirt, but cut slim and fitted between the shoulders and hips (princess seams) that ACCENTUATES her figure and lengthens it (no more strapless, Rachael! makes you look really short and wide!) and shows us that, yes, she does in fact have a waist.

    Not at all. Not all proms can be held at the same time because there are limited venues and vendors. Not to mention the fact that people may have dates from other schools. They tend to be staggered so some are earlier and some later. I also depends when you finish school. Some schools also release seniors early which would mean that they have to have an earlier senior prom. At least, that is what happens in my area. My Junior prom, for example, was in March and senior prom was mid may.

    Public high schools in Colorado start the 3rd week of August and they get out the 3rd week of May. That's why prom season is mid-April to early May. Schools stagger their proms in various cities so that they don't all happen at once, which is a relief for the police depts., restaurants, and other merchants. I've noticed that my relatives on the two coasts don't get out of school until early to mid June, but they start school after Labor Day.

    The Colorado colleges follow the same schedule, so all public schools are in sync. Most are on the semester system, which allows them enough time to get in 15 weeks of study and finish finals before Christmas. And getting out in late May allows students to get a head start on getting summer jobs.

    This is exactly what Stacey and Clinton would say :lol: That dress does look fabulous on her and whoever makes her skating dresses should take note.
