Julia wore this in her last season's SP to "Sabre Dance" (modern arrangement) by Khachaturian--I thought it looked like a costume from an old "King Kong" movie. Seriously.
España and not in such an overt way. The almost zebra-print like stretch devore velvet fabric, sprinkled with crystals, looked chic, very high fashion and still retained a slight nod to the lace mantillas of Spain.
Amelie Lacoste at Cup of China 2012--I liked the costume then and still like it now. It's exotic, sexy and goes perfectly with the haunting Near East-like music.
