Evgeni Plushenko's Style Evolution: Russian Figure Skating Legend Had Bad Ass Outfits (PHOTOS)


On Feb. 13, we gasped in shock and then shook our heads in sadness when Russian figure skating legend Evgeni Plushenko abruptly withdrew from the 2014 Winter Olympics men's short program and then announced his retirement. (#neverforget.)

After helping Russia win gold in team figure skating last weekend (and wearing a sexy sheer outfit), the 31-year-old injured himself during a practice, thus ending his brilliant career.

But aside from his astounding achievements (and there are so many), the aquiline-nosed hellraiser is also known for his wacky style from the hilarious muscle suit to gold lamé.

So, in honour of one of the greatest figure skaters of all time, we take a look back at Evgeni Plushenko's style evolution (we love you!).
