A Gold Medal Guide to Johnny Weir's Most Daring Sochi Looks
Something incredible is happening at the Sochi 2014 Winter Games right now. No, we're not talking about the rough conditions faced by athletes and journalists in the Russian city. And we're not talking about the gold, silver and "huh?" medal-worthy Opening Ceremony outfits, either!
No, this is something so incredible that I'd like to rename the 2014 Olympics to the Johnny Weir Fashion Show. Former Olympic skaters Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir have been co-hosting the skating coverage in Sochi since day one. It's clear the duo has an incredible friendship, from their extremely genuine on-air laughs to their joint Instagram account. And while Lipinski has opted for classic and girly looks throughout the Games, her co-host has been consistently outshining her in hot pinks, ruffles and fur! It's safe to say that Johnny Weir is our newest style icon. If you're not following the former two-time Olympic figure skater on Instagram, then please stop reading and do so now. Ok, glad you're back.
We already know figure skaters have incredible skin and amazing style, but Weir has taken this to a whole new level. While he has never shied away from daring outfits that keep judges and viewers alike on their toes, we think these Sochi looks are by far his best ever! I have been coveting his incredible fur jacket collection since the Olympics started. But it doesn't end there—from leather pants to the perfect side braid, Weir has his winter style game on lock.
