Quirky helmet luck for the ladies?

Excitement is still thriving at the 21st Winter Olympic Games. Some of the recent interest is with the media's coverage of Lindsey Vonn vs. Julia Mancuso (which I will cover soon). In the meantime, fashion on the slopes is looking fierce and fun! I would like to be a winter Olympian just for all the styling free team USA clothes! However while on the slopes, two olympic ski racing ladies maintain forward fashion even on their helmets.

USA's Julia Mancuso has been known for wearing a tiara on the podium, but she also sports one on her racing helmet. For luck? According to Mancuso the tiara "represents believing in yourself and everyone's a princess..." and that "everyone should rock a tiara." Mancuso rocked her tiara on the podium twice for her SILVER medals for Downhill and Combined in Vancouver.

The Slovenian racer, Tina Maze, has also won two SILVER medals in Vancouver but for Super-G and Giant Slalom. Maze's helmet design? And extra set of eyes! Creepy? I'll let you be the judge.

So is it lucky to have a creative and quirky helmet? Well, these ladies both won double SILVER medals. Perhaps it helped a little of their mental game. At least for silver.
