Yep. Another cannoli. At the Olympics.

They changed it for the better, obviously someone had to tweak Zulemas origional design 4 the better. I dont think she should have won anyway!!!

bluehistory said...

Eww. I do not like the changes. But congratulations to Zuleema for having your outfit featured in the olympics!

I was watching this. I like it much better now. I was never too keen on the original design. I could see where Zulema tried to go with it but she didn't quite capture it. The original looked more like something you'd see a little girl wearing at your local ice rink. The Olympic version is far more elegant and definitely has the Swan Princess appeal.

Hey kids, I wasn't thinking this was actually Zulema's design. It's just a similar dress.

Denise said...

Okay, that explains a bit. But I agree it is quite similar.

MNchic said...

yeah, it's not zulema's outfit.

ScubaOtter said...

Yeah, doubt it had anything to do with Z, but it *does* look like a cannoli. Must be the new 'it' ice-skating fashion rage ("simulate an italian pastry!").

Oy, vey.

aeillill said...

well, it does make sense that she'd want to look like an Italian Pastry since she's in italy

PhillyKat said...

i don't think it has anything to do with z either, unless she designed it herself. these athletes have had their costumes for quite some time. the only way that could be z's design is that sasha cohen said "here, you like looking naked on ice. try this."

delilah said...

this just shows how un-innovative Z's design was. Chloe should have definitely won that challenge.

Barb said...

I'm out of the loop--what's a cannoli other than a pastry? And isn't the American skater a beauty? Like a Barbie doll.

Hi Barb! Click Here for cannoli explanation - sort of an inside BPR joke. Be sure to follow the link to Auntiemame's recap for the origin of the cannoli reference.
