What France's Gabriella Papadakis Wore After Her Wardrobe Malfunction

The French skating couple that went through that embarrassing wardrobe malfunction at the Winter Olympics was back on the ice last night. They skated admirably.

France's Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron rebounded from their tough routine to get onto the Winter Olympics podium. They won a silver medal for their performance in the free skate, trailing only Canada's Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue in score.

This time, the couple took no chances. Papadakis' outfit was much more conservative.

It contained no hooks that could be undone. Check it out:

NBC's skating analyst, Tanith White, was incredibly impressed by the routine. She had a tough time deciding who deserved the gold medal.

“It’s making me sweat, just the idea of having to choose between the Canadian and the French, but most important, they were both exceptional,” she said.

Papadakis and Cizeron were both really happy with their performance on way to the silver medal.

“I was very emotional,” Papadakis said. “I cannot really put a word on the way I felt. We just delivered an amazing performance at the Olympics. … We couldn’t have skated better. We did our best. Maybe more than our best.”

Perhaps they could have taken home the gold medal if not for that wardrobe malfunction in their earlier routine, but going with a silver medal is still pretty awesome.
