    I can't see it either, but I'm glad everyone agrees that Ilia is better looking. I think he's aged better, too.

    I read somewhere that DiCaprio wears a US size 9 hat! That is bigger than mine! Leo is shaped a bit like a lollipop.

    I remember Grace Kelly comparisons being made about Jenny Kirk; there was a bit of a resemblance there, and they were both very elegant:

    Nancy Kerrigan was compared to Grace Kelly, too:

    Dick Button made the comparison. But I think he likes to label every willowy blond female skaters the "Grace Kelly" of the ice

    No offense to either lady, but when someone says "Grace Kelly lookalike," Nancy Kerrigan is not the first face that pops to mind.

    I remember her being compared more to Katharine Hepburn.

    Has Dick ever made popular cultural references dating past 1955?

    I can't imagine him saying, doesn't skater x remind you of Lady Gaga (unless we're talking about Johnny Weir, of course.)

    Not a reference (AFAIK), but still contemporary.

    ETA: Oh, and there's a bit of early 90s referencing in this.

    I think Kiira is more Kim Novac than Grace Kelly.

    Hmm...we need an emoticon that spits its drink over the computer screen. Because that's nearly what I just did. Yikes, get your eyes checked mate!

    I agree... I always think Madeline from Vertigo when I see Kiira with her hair pulled back in a bun. By no means a bad thing!

    She also resembles Catherine Deneuve in Umbrellas of Cherbourg in her SP costume this season, I think.
