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.
2011: Black - Black - Pink
2010: Black/red - Blue - Red
2009: Red - Blue/Turquoise - Purple
2008: Red - Pink - Pink
2007: Red - Red - Pale Blue
2006: Red - Red - Lavender/Purple
2005: Black - Pink - Lavender
2004: Black - White- Salmon/Peach?
2003: Blue - Black - Blue
2002: Black - Red - Blue
Tallying the score:
No love for yellow and green. I like green - has anyone ever won in that color?
Tallying the score: solid (solid+partial)
Red: 7 (9)
Black: 4 (7)
Purple/lavender: 3 (5)
Pink: 2 (3)
White: 1 (2)
Red was the winner. Surprisingly, blue was not very popular this year... The only real green was som stripes in Leonova witch dress.
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!
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.
It appears Tenley Albright wore pink (if the photo from this link is from the 1956 Olympics):

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!
