Former Figure Skater Addicted To Sequins
Wednesday, January 27, 2010 17:21 GMTASHLAND, Ore. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) After all these years, former U.S. figure skater Tai Babilonia is still a sucker for sequins.
The renowned Olympian, who skated to fame in the 70s and later battled alcoholism, now has her own dazzling sportswear line.
Babilonia admits shes been addicted to sequins since her days of flashy skating costumes and just cant quit the sparkly stuff.
She says, I dont do drugs anymore, so rhinestones are my drug. You can never have enough of them!
Babilonia keeps rhinestones in the millions at home and often finds herself bedazzling anything and everything, from sweaters to lamps and furniture.
She says its amazing how a few gems can dress up an outfit and make a person stand out.
Rhinestones are a skaters secret weapon because when the light hits their clothes, everyone looks.
Babilonia hopes to add more sequins to her Tai Collection skirts, though she wont be hitting the ice in them any time soon.
