    DanceMentor :lol: the problem with a clear dress is the judges might get a bit distracted :oops:

    hmmm, well, IIRC, it was constructed of this rainbow metallic lycra with inserts of chiffon in the skirt, all different colors. It was noticeable, but not necessarily in a *good* way.

    I’m not a big fan of gold, just because I look really dreadful in nude or gold color; silver would look nice if use the silver sequined bodice but other colored skirt; I would think pink or blue would be better for someone who’s pale.

    I don't mind silver, I just don't like the metallic silver. One of Alina's other dresses was metallic silver, which was horrible. Looks like a gigantic mirror. But I've seen the silver/grayish one she wore a Blackpool this year and I thought that one was nice.

    I know what you mean. One of the pro semi-finalists at Blackpool had this silver dress with giant metallic-looking mirrored appliques and I thought it was hideous. And she kept wearing it all week, for Rising Star and Pro, all rounds.

    when it comes to metallic, a dash of it can be nice, I tend to have gold in alot of my gowns because it suits my coloring...but this is not one of those instances where if a little is good, alot is better...nope

    Well this achieve the purpose of being eye-catching and distinctive and being remembered, maybe somehow such distinctive dress helped the couple to be standout from crowd and captured judge’s attention;) so dress served purpose in this way which is important for blackpool

    maybe not hard to find, she must be a pro standard RS semi-finalist, there are only 6 semi-finalists so shouldn't be hard to find.

    I would think there'd be 12 semi finalists and 6 finalists. ;)

    of course, now that I've been a smarta**, have checked pictures (just quickly, not completely, obviously) of 9 out of 12 semifinalists and haven't found dres sin question. :p

    Not unless you generally refer to finalists as "semi-finalists"...6 made the semifinal but not the final, hence semi-finalists.

    I stand corrected. Good point TAK. I should have called it a night before that nightcap. ;)

    It's Anna Longmore's dress. She was also an RS Standard finalist. It was one of those rare time where a dress can totally turn one off of a person's actual dancing:(

    I think her gowns are different unique and kind of cool, noticed her gown in RS few years back when she had a rich blue gown with circles etc... but I cannot say i dislike her dresses, I like most of her current ones... cut decoration etc... matter of taste I guess, I like that they have that different edge

    Yes, it's great that people have such varying tastes! Me, I'll take pretty over edgy anyday, personally;) But I guess if anything, her gown was memorable...
