    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.

    Looking at the photo you are correct. She does indeed look great in that shade of red.

    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.

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