I'm a Sasha fan but I never much liked her costumes. I did love her Olympic SP and LP dresses in Torino, though. As for her Swan Lake dresses, I preferred the one she wore at the 04 Worlds, the other one was too literal. Nothing was as bad as Ann Patrice McDonough's blazed on Bjork-style Swan dress that season, though.

I loved the robin lake dress. I thought Sasha looked great at that competition.
Evan looks hawt.
Sasha does have muscles on her muscles. Extremely lean, too. I don't think she has an ounce of body fat.
You know this for a fact? How?Look, I love Sasha's skating, but let's be real - she relishes in the attention. No use trying to deny it. This was her motivation for skating all along. She skipped practices because she only likes skating in front of a crowd, and lack of practice caused her to mess up in all the "big ones." Sasha's natural talent carried her far, but you have to be dedicated even when no one's watching. Sasha only likes skating when lots of people are watching.
From what I can see, Sasha was always a pretty conservative person who didn't seem like a spotlight hog in the slightest-So she likes to skate in front of a crowd and likes to be appreciated for it. Don't all performers? She's far from a "look at me" drama queen like Baiul, Harding, or Bobek.
She skated because she was good at it, made a living doing it, and probably liked doing it.
For all the "messing up" she did, if you look back at most of her events, she had a mistake or two in most of her longs, but they were generally well skated-Most skaters would be envious to have been as consistent as Sasha was. So she made some mistakes. Most of her peers made more, and didn't have half her style. You don't have to like her, but her competitive record is very impressive. I think it's a big stupid myth that Sasha was lazy. Her accomplishments and length of time as one of the top skaters in the world say otherwise.
Sasha looks fabulous with her new hairdo.
FSO Q&A (March 22, 2011): Sasha Cohen: ‘I think that I’m truly done’
Now the big question everyone wants to know: Are you truly finished competing and do you think there’s any chance you might return?
I think that I’m truly done. There are other things I want to do and I really enjoy traveling and touring but I would love to go to school. At the age of 26 there’s some other things that I feel compelled and really interested to do but skating was such a big part of my life.
