Random Thoughts about the Ladies Olympic Short Program

The Turkey skater, Tugba wore a stunning red and gold dress, very different from what we usually see. Very beautiful. 

Miki Ando's dress also had a unique look about it. I like the longer hemline, very flattering on her. The colors were great and while I usually don't care for uneven hems this I liked. It was tailored nicely to her. 

Kim Yu Na by far had the best outfit. It was stunning-a work of art in itself, I couldn't take my eyes off of it. She gave an equally stunning performance as well. 

I'm looking forward to the long program.

Random thoughts about Olympic men's short program

Plushenko needs an updated hairdo. He has needed on for years. The "pageboy" look is pretty passe. I used to think that Johnny Weir had the worst haircut ever but Plusenko holds that title. Actually, Weir really improved his looks and finally found a haircut that frames his face. No more stringly looking hair.  Nice.

Patrick Chan's outfit was nice. I love the texture. Johnny Weir's outfit, well, I'm not sure what to think of it. It reminds me of a bad antique corset. I like the tassel and the shiny stretch patent leather look though.

I see Kevin Van Der Perrin came to the Olympics dressed for Halloween. What's with the bones outfit?

I really like the boards, it's so colorful and I love the blue-green retro design. Best of all, it's so refreshing to see boards without advertising. I don't think I've seen boards in a rink that nice looking before, it's like a work of art in itself. Way to go Canada!

Random Thoughts about the Olympic pairs short program

Shen and Zhao's outfits were so stunning. They have really improved their style through the years. The black, white, grey and pink color scheme looks fresh and contemporary. Good choice.

Caydee Denney' s hair reflects her youth. The red streaks are totally different. I wonder what does that say about her personality...

Speaking of good color choices, love the turquoise color on the outfits of Langlois & Hay. I also like the electric blue outfits of Volosozhar & Morozov.

The sparkly headband on Yuko Kavaguti was very cute.

One of my favorite outfits of the night was worn by the team that really put their best skate forward, Pang and Tong What a beautiful shade of blue and the jewels on Pang's forehead was a nice touch. Very stunning.
