It's that time again! We're about halfway through the summer off season which means it's time for my Off Season Fun series of posts. I always love going back and reviewing some of my favorite looks, programs and moments from the past season. First up, my favorite short program looks!
5. Kaetlyn Osmond: "Sous le Ciel de Paris"
3. Ashley Wagner: "Sweet Dreams"
I wasn't the biggest fan of this program but I am a pretty big fan of this dress. Ashley's designer Lisa McKinnon knows how to make Ashley look amazing. This was one of the most asymmetrical dresses I've ever seen her wear but it all worked in such an edgy and fun way. I loved all of the jeweled detailing on the collar, shoulder and cuff as well as the horizontal detailing on the bodice. The dark blue color looked great on Ashley and I loved the pop of lighter blue fabric on the skirt as well. Ashley's darker hair, smokey eye and signature red lip and ponytail made this look one of the best of the season.
Michelle Kwan wore in 2001 for her "Black Swan" program, only with more dimension. The bodice looked like sharp splayed feather plumes; it gave the dress a dark and edgy look which is exactly what they were going for. The skirt was fabulous! I liked the sheer fabric and how it looked as if it were pieces instead of one asymmetrical skirt. Mao switched to a ponytail later in the season but my favorite hairstyle was the sleek bun. Combined with her dramatic eye makeup and red lip, she looked absolutely stunning. Like the program itself this look was something new and out of the box for Mao and I loved it. This was definitely my favorite look of the season.
