The Tampere-born Ms. Korpi is known for her nickname Jääprinsessa (Ice Princess) in her home country due to her resemblance to Grace Kelly, the former Princess of Monaco. Writing for GoldenSkate.com in 2008, Barry Mittan described her as "widely regarded as the most beautiful woman in figure skating".
