Medals Are Done, But Who Won Best Olympic Figure Skating Beauty?

Feb 22 2014 - 12:00pm

We will never be able to pull off a triple axel or even a double toe loop (and that spin thing that Yulia does, we definitely cannot do). But we can braid, curl, and match our lipstick to our nails with the best of them! See the most inspiring looks from an incredibly inspiring group of young women as we look back at the women's figure skating competition at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

Gracie Gold, USA

She may have come in fourth place, but her high bun wins top marks in our book.

Yuna Kim, South Korea

The silver medalist went for a dramatic costume but left her makeup relatively simple, going for a sweep of black liner.

Carolina Kostner, Italy

The bronze medalist matched her crimson nails to her lips for her winning free skate.

Zijun Li, China

It was a delicate pink rose at the top of the nape for the young Chinese skater.

Ashley Wagner, USA

Ponytail, no more! The American skater went for pure polish for her first Olympic free skate.

Mae Berenice Meite, France

Delicate pearls adorned the French skater's low bun. A nod to Chanel, perhaps?

The youngest American skater stuck to her formula of bejeweled braids for her skate.

Valentina Marchei, Italy

Jewels and a rose defined the side of the Italian's crown, before ending in a loose ponytail.
