Purple Haze

Marina Aganina and Artem Knyazev of Uzbekistan
2006 Torino Olympics

Uzbekistan isn't exactly known for figure skating. After Marina Aganina and Artem Knyazev's costumes in Torino, the country probably won't ever be known for fashion either. The pair appeared to have skated through a cotton-candy factory ahead of their long program. How the psychedelic coloring enhanced their performance to Tchaikovsky's "Danse Napolitaine" from Swan Lake remains a mystery.
