Time for the final 2017 Internationaux de France Grand Prix of France COSTUMES blog! I've discussed the LADIES HERE, the MEN HERE and now it is time for the PAIRS and ICE DANCE!

Let's begin with the PAIRS costumes, which I have not discussed this season:
Liobov Ilyushechkina and Dylan Moscovitch of Canada--For their Short program to In The Air Tonight by Phil Collins, Ilyushechkina and Moscovitch wore these black and silver costumes. I liked hers especially; it looked modern, fresh and Versace-like. I was also happy that Dylan's look had some detail. Some. I should just be happy with that when it comes to him since I'm just more in AWE of his OUT OF CONTROL Kabunkadunk...figure! (he he)

Free Skate to At This Moment performed by Billy Vera & The Beaters: For their Free Skate, the Canadian Pairs team went with black and red. She wore a halter neckline sequined dress costume which was pretty and he just went with an all-black outfit I would wear on a December in NYC. Please Please PLEASE give Dylan something! A subtle red tuxedo pant stripe perhaps? Otherwise, this is just lazy costuming. 

Marissa Castelli and Mervin Tran of USA: US Pairs team of Castelli and Tran skated their Short Program to Fallin' by Alicia Keys at the 2017 Grand Prix of France wearing these costumes above. I liked these looks for them especially her lightly sequined halter costume and his rhinestone embellished shirt. This is the PERFECT EXAMPLE of how to do the all-black men's costume but with some details! Now, I remember that I discussed their costumes back in my 2017 Rostelecom Cup of Russia Costumes Blog and they wore something different:

These costumes above is what they wore...If these seem familiar, it is because they are: They are the same costumes from last season (same program music as well).  Anyhow...I thought these were one of THE BEST of last season and they still hold up now. Gorgeous styling, expensive beading...LOVE her one shoulder-like design and especially how draped and beautiful Mervin's costume is. I know that obviously their new costumes weren't ready so they wore these re-hashed ones above at the 2017 Rostelecom Cup of Russia but...I kinda like them BETTER than their new ones. What do you guys think?

Free Skate to Women by Shawn Phillips--I also talked about these in my 2017 Rostelecom Cup of Russia  Costumes BLOG HERE  but they're so BEAUTIFUL, refined and expensive-looking that...I had to post photos of them again--look at his rhinestone'ed top detail! #Love

Angelique Abachkina and Louis Thauron of France: Short Dance to Samba: Le Serpent by Guem; Rhumba: Abrazame performed by Tamara; Rhumba: Danca Kizomba by Stony--These costumes were fun and fabulous especially dealing with the Latin-inspired Short Dance music and Program. Angelique wore a fringed costume that would make Bob Mackie blush (OK, maybe not, but...). I loved the colors and asymmetrical styling. What I wasn't a fan of was her curled hair style; she looked a little too "Caligula/Roman Gal Being Offered to the Emperor". But, I was a fan of...

Louis's black solid/sheer velvet look! LOVED the "plunging neckline" top and the Jean Paul Gaultier-like velvet details in his shirt design. 

Free Dance to Mariage d'amour by Paul de Senneville and Je suis malade by Alice Dona, Serge Lama performed by Lara Fabian--For their Free Dance, Angelique wore this deep lilac colored dress that featured a leotard/bodysuit and a full ombre-dyed skirt. The design also had sequined flower appliques and an asymmetrical front neckline. Louis wore a white shirt and black pants. The white shirt had interesting pleated shoulder details and gray/black dye effect to make it look worn. These were nice but I wished there might have been some of the deep lilac color in his costume. Somewhere.

Charlene Guignard and Marco Fabbri of Italy--For their Short Dance to Salsa: Bajo La Tormenta performed by Sergio George's Salsa Giants; Rhumba: Con Los Anos Que Me Quedan by Gloria Estefan; and Samba: Samba de Rio Pardo by Miguel Preto, this Italian Ice Dance pair wore these costumes. Naturally, she was the COSTUME STAR and he was just in black (Yawn...but  I get it!). Charlene wore a white with purple and pink sequined dress featuring ombre purple/fuchsia-like horsehair trim at the hem making it "ruffle" out. It was VERY "Dancing With The Stars" and I especially liked the rhinestone-studded bustier and nude sequined strapped open back. So sexy. And yes, Marco, well..he was just in black. 

Elliana Pogrebinski and Alex Benoit of USA: This US Ice Dance pair skated their Short Dance to Samba: Simba by Dan Nekonecny; Rhumba: Lo So Che Finira by Anna Tatangelo; and Merengue: Bailar by Elvis Crespo, Erick Orrosquieta, Robert Fernandez. Alex was in black. Of course. I liked his plunging neckline top and sheer shoulder/arm detail. PS: He's soooo sexy hot! But yes,--back to Elliana: Loved the bright neon pink color of her costume and fringed skirt. She looked like a South American Bird of Paradise in this great costume! 

Cha-Cha! That's it for my 2017 Internationaux de France Grand Prix of France Costumes Blogs
