Olympic figure skating costumes are all about fit, flare, and a few thousand rhinestones. All that glitter isn’t cheap. The dress Gracie Gold wore on the cover of Sports Illustrated would set you back $3,000.  

Designers say dresses run anywhere from $1,500 to $5,000 each. And Olympic contestants need more than one. It takes a wardrobe of shine to succeed on the ice.
