Bring on the Spandex: 11 Figure Skating Frocks We Actually Like
Things we know about ice fashion. It’s usually over-the-top. It’s usually sparkly. It usually has some sheer element to it. And (we hate to say it) it’s usually awful. But not today, buckaroos. No way, no how. We’re here with 11 Olympic ladies of past, present, and future who use the rink as their runway. And they refuse to do a triple Salchow unless their frosted fashion is totally on toe-pick point. Get ready for a lot dramatic arm posing below!
7. Michelle Kwan: She’s one of the few performers who has figured out how to keep figure skating outfits from turning into fashion nightmares. Really, her choice of outfits could warrant a dedicated post. (via Fox Sports)
9. Surya Bonaly: Whether she was refusing to wear tights, performing illegal backflips, or throwing temper tantrums over winning silver rather than gold, Surya Bonaly and her costumes always had one thing in common. They were bold and made sure they got your attention.(via iVillage)
10. Sonja Henie: This Norwegian ice goddess lived quite the life. Not only was she a three-time Olympic champion, at the time, she was an actress. But not just any actress, she was the highest paid female in Hollywood. Oh, and she had a high-profile relationship with Liberace. (Umm… yeah.) And the girl knew how to dress. Even on the ice.
