Jeremy Abbott practicing at the TD Garden Arena, 2014 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships Boston Massachusetts
Continuing with my Costume Recap Highlights of the costumes from the 2014 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships happening right now in Boston...I talked about the LADIES and PAIRS Short Program Costumes HERE and now it's time to discuss the Men and Ice Dance Short Program/Short Dance Costumes...
For Richard's SP to The Sons of Italy by Henry Mancini, he wore a wine-colored stretch velvet fitted jacket with gold buttons, a ruffled shirt and skin-tight black pants. I like that the pants have the pin-tuck down the front of the leg and that there's a nod to a Shakespeare-era costume.
At Skate Canada 2013 in October--which one do we like better?
Ice Dance Short Program Costume Highlights:
Quickstep: Man with the Hex; Foxtrot: The Business of Love (from "The Mask" soundtrack); Swing: Hey Pachucco (from "The Mask" soundtrack), Aldridge and Eaton wore these costumes above. I liked her sexy black halter dress and how the sequins were concentrated at the shoulder/neck. I especially liked his high-waisted pinstripe pants and suspenders. The costumes were designed by Tatiana Noll, Lynn Martin, Massimo Scali, Luanne Williams.
Pauline Bynum and Jason Deveikis Short Dance: I couldn't find what Bynum and Deveikis skated to for their SD (or a YouTube video of it) but I LOVED these costumes! Her black and white dress, especially, was GORG! It looked like a Dior Haute Couture collection dress. And he looked dapper and very elegant.
HERE. The costumes were designed by Madison Chock and were PERFECTION. Now, if you notice, Evan's gold cummerbund and pocket scarf are a new addition...
Here (in above pic) is Evan at the 2013 Rostelecom Cup/Cup of Russia in November, in their Short Dance--without the gold cummerbund and pocket hankie.
