When Papadakis' halter-top dress became unfastened at the beginning of her performance alongside partner Guillaume Cizeron in the short dance on Monday afternoon, the cameras kept rolling as she fought to protect her modesty while still executing the key elements required by the judges.
Gabriella Papadakis calls this incident her worst nightmare. South Korean ice dancer Yura Min's costume became unhooked just seconds into her routine with partner Alexander Gamelin on February 11.
"I think in the twizzles it kind of affected us the most", Cizeron said, referring to the rapid, one-footed turns that ice dancers frequently perform, "because when you are rotating it is hard to keep your dress on when it's open".
"It's frustrating to lose points just because of a costume problem", she said.
It's not what we get ready for when we train.
The French duo stayed relatively calm throughout the program and ended up with an 81.93 score that landed them in second behind Canadian stars Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, who scored 83.67.
"But it won't knock her down", Papadakis said. Still, there is no way of knowing whether he and Papadakis' routine would have been good enough for first place even without the wardrobe malfunction.
