The Seattle Times has a great piece up about who was Best Dressed during last night’s men’s free skate in Vancouver. The dramatic event catapulted American Evan Lysacek to gold over favorite Evgeni Plushenko in what many are calling a flawless performance.
From The Times’s point of view, our boy Johnny Weir took the fashion crown (not surprisingly) was best dressed. But Plushenko, in a rhinestone suitcoat, got the nod as worst dressed. From our point of view, it was definitely the hair that did him in. That mane needs an Andy Murray-chopping pronto.
In the fan’s poll, Weir just nudged out Lysacek 37% to 35%. The people have spoken.
More shots of Plushenko and Weir after the cut.
Plushenko faltered. Or, did he? Controversy has begun to swirl around Lysacek’s upset.
Lysacek’s two-piece outfit looked great on his fit form, but the different shades of black didn’t bode well for him. Nor did those snakes. Oh, the snakes!
Bronze medalist Daisuke Takahashi‘s outfit had plenty going on. We especially like the plaid, ruffled neckline and his Weir-inspired hair.
