The photos show French figure skater Maé-Bérénice Méité in the middle of her single free-skate program, a 2018 Winter Olympics event that took place at the Gangneung Ice Arena in South Korea on Friday.

Méité did not win any medals for her performance, but she did win over the crowd.

In the middle of Méité’s routine, she whipped back part of her black skirt to reveal a second, sparkly layer underneath.

To coincide with the change in outfit, the music changed too – from the 19th-century pianist Frédéric Chopin, to a more lively piece, “Happy,” by the French band C2C.

Here’s a video of the costume change:

Earlier in the week, Méité performed to Beyoncé’s “Run the World (Girls).”

Even though she didn’t win a medal in the free-skate event, she will be remembered for her antics on the ice.
