    Actually, I don't dislike it. There are women who look great in it but not the ladies in question. Doesn't suit their skin tones.

    Yes, she is lovely. Also, she is wearing a more user-friendly shade of red that is more in the coral family and contains less blue. Sorry for the make-up hijacking of the thread. :shuffle:

    Nobunari should write "How to avoid zayaking" with Javier Fernandez. Kiira Korpi should contribute with a foreword "The secrets of a zayakless jump layout".

    LOL did Morozov really write a book with that title :eek: :lol: this is the guide people with sense would avoid if they want to keep a professional relationship, or even better do the opposite.

    Apparently Emeril Lagasse offered his assistance too, but Nancy said she didn't need any. :)
