Nick Verreos Skypes in on NBC.com "Olympic Ice" show, discussing Figure Skating Fashion with hosts Sarah Hughes and Russ Thaler
Last night were the Ice Dance Finals at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. If you've been keeping up on my blog here and especially anything "ICE STYLE", you know I'm a big fan of figure skating and love to talk about the costumes, especially, since fashion is my forte, as opposed to actual figure skating.
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of being invited on an NBC.com online show "Olympic Ice" as part of all the NBC Olympics streaming channels, to discuss the Ice Dance costumes and some of my favorite and not-so favorite figure skating costumes so far. This is my 3rd time appearing on Olympic Ice! I have been part of the show for the Torino 2006 Olympics, Vancouver 2010 Olympics and now the Sochi 2014 Olympics! In fact, back in 2006 I actually was flown to Torino, Italy to be part of the show and it was my very first media appearance post-Project Runway. So, I definitely have a special place in my heart for the show.
This season, the show is hosted by 2002 Olympic gold medalist Sarah Hughes (Love her!) and Russ Thaler, host of NBC SportsTalk (and a sharp dresser!). The "Olympic Ice" studios are in Connecticut and I am in Los Angeles so therefore I Skyped in for my "appearance". Some of the costumes I talked about were...
2014 Olympic gold medalists Meryl David and Charlie White of the U.S., silver medalists from Canada Virtue and Moir and the "Shib Sibs" (Maia and Alex Shibutani of the U.S.)...I also discussed this boy on the right, Misha Ge of Uzbekistan (naturally!)
