Katarina Witt on the red carpet in a skinny purple gown

Katarina Witt poses for adoring photographers at the Bambi 2006 Awards at the Mercedes Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. The date was November 30, 2006. Her skinny purple gown is complemented by a rather spectacular diamond necklace and even more spectacular matching diamond bracelet. No sign, however, of the gold medals she won as figure skating's world champion (in 1984, 1985, 1987 and 1988) and Olympic champion (in 1984 and 1988).
