Musty of course caus she's so damn pretty!
Well, based on these photos, Musty, because hers is just her standing there, while Jana's has been touched up for the catalog and it looks all fake and the rhinestones are randomly gleaming. Points for the side pony and lack of shorts, but still...Musty.Side note--how much would it suck to have your nickname be "Musty"?
Even though Jana's is fakey, Musty has terrible posture. She almost looks like she has a belly pooch the way she is standing.I am going to give this one to Jana because she doesn't look so much like a dumptruck here.
I'm going to have to go with Jana, if only because of nostalgia.
Actually, I'm going to give it to Jana, too, airbrushing and fake twinkles notwithstanding. It appears from the catalogue page that the red sash/band portion of the leo is supposed to cover the chest, whereas Aliya has an awkward half white/half red boob going on. Her slouchy posture doesn't help, but the leo actually makes her chest look large, which... I'm fairly sure it isn't.Also, Aliya looks tired, grumpy, and sort of like she's scratching her crotch, whereas that is potentially the most happy and relaxed I've seen Jana (usually images of her in 2008 looking sick and concentrated and frowny come to mind).
Jana looks cute and approachable. I know these photo contexts are wildly different, but Mustafina looks unhappy and out of shape in these shots.
It kills me but I'll have to give this one to Jana. I agree that Alyia looks grumpy and also out of shape (what clearly is to blame on her ACL tear, but still...)But the selection of the pictures was also slightly mean. Jana gets this perfectly air-brushed version of herself whereas Alyia's shown from a weird angle after a 8 month absence from the sport...
What the hell is the matter with you people?! Mustafina looks out of shape? Really?I'm sure you'd look better in a leotard.... come ON.
I have to say Aliya, it looks cute on her. And seriously -_- musty is not out of shape, she tore her freaking ACL and she can't train 100%, but come on she is no way out of shape!
What? Mustafina IS out of shape in that shot. I am still confused as to why Russia tried to send her to a meet so soon. She was injured, it's okay - the settings for these shots are very different so it is hard to do a true "who wore it better?"
she tore her freaking ACL and she can't train 100%Er...what do you think out of shape means? It's okay, no one's dumping on her or calling her a bad gymnast; she was hurt! But she's out of shape and I'm positive Mustafina herself would say so.Anyway, I still give the edge to Musty because I actually think leos look better on actual bodies with a little chalk on them (weird posture and crotch scratch notwithstanding). I always think catalog leos look like they're on paper dolls; weirdly flat and shiny and square and one-dimensional. Stare at it long enough and it's like Jana has the torso of Mr. Game and Watch. It's not a good look.
I think this was a national team leo in MIOBI too.. http://loriswp.files.wordpress.com/2010/02/miobi_gallery1017-03.jpg
Мустафина. Она много мило фото!
HATE crotch/hoo-ha shots. So, even more than by default, Musty.
Hey Elmhurt, Illinois, I will delete any comments that are that offensive to the gymnasts. No need to call anyone "fucking fake."
stop saying Mustafina looks bad! SHE TORE HER DAMN ACL!!!!! Plus, she was probably so tired from losing strength and maybe even kinda nervous about what could happen.
