I agree ... but you'd best be careful here, because Brave Young Widow
fanatics will doubtless start to crawl out of the woodwork now that
you've offered them a challenge.  Aside from Ms. Hepburn's
unequaled beauty, grace, and elegance, she was a humanitarian who had
class and dignity (i.e., unlike the Brave Young Widow, she didn't***
every married man who happened to cross her path).  :-)

Hi, I've been lurking for a while, and I had to jump in to point out
that Tara's costume for the My Fair Lady number is a direct copy of
Audrey Hepburn's ball gown (plus jewel collar) in the movie.

Ok, Tara's cute and a good skater, but no one -- and I mean NO ONE --
can compete with Audrey Hepburn when it comes to grace and elegance. I
thought it was a poor costuming choice. Why can't they just let Tara
be the kid that she is? She was great in the circus number.

Ann,

What does this person's post about Tara's costume being a bit too old for her
have to do with katia?

Marce,

No one will ever deny the regal elegance of Audrey Hepburn.  Am a fan of hers
from the very early 60s.  I don't think anyone has Tara Lipinski competing
with Hepburn.  Considering the choice of music the  costume seems logical &
quite appropriate.  Personally, I think it is one of Tara's better costumes &
she looks quite lovely (loverly?) in it.  I also agree that she was great in
the Circus number.  But a kid?  Yes, but just for a while longer.  She is
becoming more of a "young lady" every day.  A thing that girls have a habit
of doing.

Neil (who sometimes wishes his 19 year old was 10 again, but that time has
past)

This is a tangent to the original post, but this costume (and Kristi's
blue Tchaikovsky one) didn't seem to be very well constructed for
skating.  It looked lovely when she was standing still, but when she
jumped or did camel spins or illusions, the skirt flipped all the way
up to her underarms.  I can understand that the costume designer liked
the drape or movement of the high-waisted skirt, but isn't there a way
to anchor it so it doesn't end up at the armpits during a camel spin?
