    I thought Hughes in 2002 was more lavender.... That's certainly how it looks in most pictures and vids I've seen.

    1994 Oksana- pink (not sure who wore blue)
    1992 Kristi- black & gold/yellow
    1988 Katarina- red
    1984- Katarina- pink/red

    Looks like the blues trend is fairly recent.

    Going back further

    1980 - Poetzsch - .... salmon?
    1976 - Hammil - red
    1972 - Schuba - navy (yale?) blue
    1968 - Fleming - chartreuse

    Can't find any color pictures (very quickly at least) of Dijkstra in 1964 or anything earlier

    The only ladies gold at worlds in green (after Fleming if she wore the same costume at worlds that year) is I think Anett Poetzsch in 1978

    Oh, in 1980 Lake Placid Poetzsch wore blue for her SP (where she was a little lucky to be fourth).

    And Yamachuchi's SP costume was blue too.

    The blue juggernaut rolls on.

    Blue is one of the favorite color all over the World. Plus, it's way better on the ice than some other colors. I guess that's why we have so much blue costumes.

    Maybe that's why so many men wear black.

    It looked like periwinkle blue on TV, to me. I did not see the competition live.

    Blue, Red, Black are great colors on ice, and so they are most frequently used. Still, it is quite a coincidence that last 4 ladies champions wore blue.

    Mafke mentioned Peggy Fleming ('68 Olympics) and Poetzsch ('78 Worlds) earlier upthread. Rosalynn Sumners won 1984 US Nats in a green dress; I have trouble deciding between blue, green, and blue-green in the case of the one she wore for the 1983 Worlds free skate.

    Thanks. I knew about Fleming. Has anyone worn green recently? It would look good on many skaters, especially those who has dark hair/pale skin like Fleming. Or are skaters just that superstituos?

    Elena Glebova and Kiira Korpi are the only ones I can recall at the moment.

    I think Tonya Harding wore green at one of the US nationals- may be 1991 when she landed the 3A (first time for a US lady). She won the world silver the same year.

    This is the program. I'd say it's more blue/mint green-ish than really green.

    Irina Slutskaya won the 1999-2000 Grand Prix Final wearing a green dress (though there is a hint of blue in its shade). She wore a different dress at Worlds, however.

    Kwan 2002, gala. Had the arrogance and nerve to remain on that music, wear a gold dress, and make a huge fake drama, what an ignorance!

    I don't get why you seem so offended by Michelle in 2002.

    Huge fake drama? I was never an uber (guess who my fave was in 2002) but I was moved to tears by Kwan's "Fields of Gold" gala performance. It came from her heart imo.

    I couldn't find pictures but on video Dijkstra appears to have worn a green dress in '64 (well it looks kind of green to me the quality isn't the greatest):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkIM4rCHxC4

    It appears Tenley Albright wore pink (if the photo from this link is from the 1956 Olympics):

    Um, the program was originally designed for the skating exhibition honoring the 61 World Team (it's a song of remembrance) which ended up honoring those lost during the 9/11 tragedy. She originally wore blue IIRC. So, she was supposed to drop her exhibition the day after the competition to tone down the "arrogance" in your opinion??? Ahh, the cult that hates Kwan and must insist that a gold dress and "gold song" was her arrogantly believing she had the OGM in the bag.

    Green dress found!

    Risa Shoji just won silver at JGP Brisbane wearing a green dress. She skated to "Legends of the Falls", so she gets two bonus points from me!
