When I was a kid, family friends gave me their daughter’s old figure skating costumes for my dress-up box, starting an obsession with sparkles, and compelling me to write about the most gorgeous ice skating costumes of the Sochi Winter Olympics. These athletes can spend thousands of dollars on a single outfit, so it better have just enough sparkle and shine. And considering the international event is only once every four years (if you can earn a spot), they should have been hoping their dress was one of the most gorgeous ice skating costumes of the Sochi Winter Olympics.
1. Gracie Gold - Team USA - Ladies Short Program Dress
Now out of the 7 most gorgeous ice skating costumes of the Sochi Winter Olympics, no costume truly stands out like Gracie Gold’s red short program costume. Now this girl KNOWS how to dress. Her constant use of the color red against her pale skin tone makes her look simply riveting. There’s just something about this dress that just oozes America’s sweetheart. Her simple bun, matched with (again) a red lip, is so classic she could have jumped out of an old Hollywood film. Little (and big) girls everywhere will be adorning their ice skating fantasies with that dress.
