And for best dressed in the long program.....

I am going to assume you know who won the Ice Dancing last night.  The young American couple Davis and White won the gold medal.  They skated perfectly.  I liked their short program better because of the speed and the music...and the dress....but that's just being picky.  After watching 15 couples skate yesterday afternoon I do believe the couples who won gold and silver really were the best!  The couple that skated to Les Miz have much going for them but did anyone else notice how awkward their lifts were? The girl looked like she was crawling up a mountain to get up on her partner's shoulders.  And then she would strike a grand pose.  And her poses on top were GREAT.  But the whole climbing up thing was terrible.  Do you think someone will tell them?  


Following are the best dressed of the night.






Italy.  42nd Street.  cutest.

(This is from the short program...but that skirt....fabulous!)






Russian. Swan Lake. classic.






Canadians. Music choice ?.  Gorgeous.
I have to wonder if they had different music if they would have won?  The Americans danced to Shahrazad and it was eh....But I can't even remember what Tessa and Scott skated to.  I think I liked their skating best.  They won the gold four years ago so they are no slouches.




Americans. Les Miz.  Thrilling.

Here is the couple that had the awkward lifts.  They had my favorite music of the night...and look how lovely she is!  They are young and with a little lift help I think they have a future in the sport.  (take my advice!)  I think they came in 9th.



Oh Ice Dancing....you are my best.

Love,
Donna

    I was glad the Americans won, but Meryl Davis looked so stark (for lack of a better word). If her hair and eyebrows hadn't been so black and her lipstick so red, I think she would have looked so much better. It all didn't quite go with Charlie's rather disheveled look (which I kind of liked). I thought the get-up made her look too harsh; she needed a little softer look.

  4. The Swan Lake costume was my favorite.

    I think Meryl Davis looked exactly like Jasmine from Disney with her costume and hair!

    2. I thought she looked like Jasmine also and I agree with Donna, I would have loved to see them skate to Aladdin music.

  6. Oh, goody! I have questions to ask. I don't think I've ever watched ice dancing before.

    What's slicing me open is this: why isn't blood pouring from the guys thighs? HOW do they withstand the girls standing IN THEIR ICE SKATES on them? Don't those blades hurt?? They didn't wince or anything. I understand they are probably calloused, but ewww!!

    What do you call the design of Meryl's skirt. That front that wasn't there. Me no like.

    What do you think about the brother-sister team (as a concept--I liked the kids)? It seems ice dancing wants us to think romance (don't you love how Scott kisses Tessa's hand before they start?) and there is a bit of a ewwww factor when they are bro and sis. Or am I just strange?

    I am wholeheartedly with you on the Italians. Her lipstick matched his bow tie. I could look at them all the live long day.

    I preferred the Canadians. Lyrical. Perfect.

    The picture I will carry away with me is Charlie's huge smile/laugh after they finished. At that unruly hair and those white teeth and his eyes twinkling. Wonderful

    Another thank you for Miz Boo. I was on the computer, checked yesterday's blog and realized that ice dancing finals were on last night from your blog. I'm glad I watched. Thanks for the heads up!

    1. I'm so sorry you have shingles. I hear they are very painful. God bless!

    2. We wonder the same thing Carol...about the blades on the thighs. We wonder if there are pads somewhere. I googled it and didn't find an answer. I am not bothered by the brother sister teams. Did you see the pictures of when they were little? CUTE!

    3. I seriously think it has to do with angle - I think their foot must be bent just so or so exactly straight that it's not the sharp edge, or something....

      Delete
    4. Yes. You are right about the flat edge. But the lean seems pressure inducing.

    5. Oops! jep has the shingles, not me.

      I'm even more curious about the lifts. Because the thigh needs to be stable so there isn't a fall, and it can't be if there is pain.

    I agree with all your reviews. As always I am behind and did not see the performances last night, so I will try to google them. Just back from the doctor's office….I have shingles. UGH! Fortunately back when I turned 60 I had the shot, so it could be much worse. My public service message to all here…take the shingles shot if you had chicken pox. And, I learned you can get chicken pox from someone who has shingles which means no visiting with the youngest grand this week…he is too little for his vaccine for chicken pox. Now all the children take the vaccine and they hope to make chicken pox go the way of small pox. I do so pray that works.
    love and prayers for all here, jep

      Thank you Susan! I just came back to say the good news is that I have Downton Abbey Season 3 from the library to watch while I recover. jep

    3. I've heard this is dreadful. May God bring healing to you soon, and patience before then. (((hugs)))

    5. Enjoy Downton and hopefully it will take your mind off of the discomfort even if just a bit. More importantly echoing Carol 's prayers for healing <3

  9. Was anyone else bothered by the way the Canadian's pink dress kept going between her legs? I thought the dress was gorgeous but it looked really odd whenever it went between her legs.

  10. Carol, I am totally with you on the brother-sister thing. I thought I was just weird. Glad you're weird with me. :P

    1. Ha. You are both weird. They are not making out for heavens sake.

      About the dress going between Tessa's legs. I didn't really notice....I was looking at her beautiful face. :-)

    2. I think as time goes by, the bro-sis thing will be limiting. Because the sport is mildly sensuous. And even the mildest sensuality doesn't fit with siblings. imho
