Thanks to 6277 for the subbed videos with proper credit to Sophie Moroi for her translation, and with her permission too.  (I saw videos in Youtube that used Sophie’s translation with no permission, and even worse, with no credit to her whatsoever!)   

And I love no-commentary videos… thanks to siberia1982 for the SP and FP ones! 

Victory Ceremony:  I was watching the competition on live stream and praying so hard during ‘Hope&Legacy’.  When he finished his perfect FP, tears just streamed down my face.  YOU DID IT, YUZU!!!!  Then, after the last skater’s turn, when it was confirmed that Yuzu got the gold, I started crying again.  And I could not stop crying throughout the medal ceremony!  I was watching it on live stream and I kept wiping my eyes so that I could see clearly!   Ahhhhhh……… finally, through all those ups and downs of the past 2+ years, through all the pain and heartache, finally!!! he got the reward that he worked so hard for.  You really deserve that gold medal and all the happiness in the world, Yuzuru!!!

What a privilege to know you and to be your fan.  Thank you, Yuzu, and CONGRATS!!!!

The Top Style Stars of 2014 

See who made the list and snag their on-point style

Now that 2014 is coming to a close, it’s time to look back on the best in fashion, from trends to trendsetters. Today, we’re spotlighting our top style stars of the year, including up-and-coming actresses, celebrities and fashion week-goers. There were a number of beautiful and seriously chic women to choose from, so the decision wasn’t easy, but we’ve narrowed our favorites down to 10. Scroll down to see the lovely ladies who made the list, and shop their styles with our hand-selected picks below!

1. Lupita Nyong’o

If there was one person who continuously killed it on the red carpet this year, it was rising actress and Oscar nominee Lupita Nyong’o. Her flattering, brightly-colored gowns and effortless poise caught our attention every time.

2. Annina Mislin

Fairly new to the frenzy of fashion week, Annina Mislin, an editor at C Magazine, stepped on to the scene in minimal, beautiful ensembles, styled with a close attention to detail. We soon found her to be an expert at what might sound oxymornic - simple, showstopping looks.
