GUYS GUYS. OLGA SMIRNOVA DOING ODILE.
It’s bloody brilliant. I love 0:33, she does this look during the penchee manege from the corner. All her looks and expressions are absolutely perfect. Of course Semyon is a wonderful partner. I also love how she does pirouettes in the old style- very fast. Her arms look a little off in the pirouettes, but the rest of it is beyond beautiful. Watch it- it’s an Odile like no other.
