Johnny Weir's Sochi Fashions Captivate Viewers

Johnny Weir's Sochi Fashions Captivate Viewers

02/12/2014

Johnny Weir may have traded in the ice rink for the commentators' booth, but that doesn’t mean the former pro skater isn't still commanding attention with bright-colored fashion collection.

Johnny Weir's Olympic Style Stuns

Weir, 29, has been documenting his outfits at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi on Instagram. Over the weekend he rocked a fur coat over a suit jacket and ruffled shirt, paired with incredibly tight skinny jeans and Louboutins. His hair, in must be noted, was fashioned into a “Russian braid.”

On Tuesday, Weir sported a hot pink vintage Chanel blazer, leather leggings, Rock Owens wedges and Joomi Lim jewels. This time, his hair was styled in a pompadour. “The unsung hero of my night... my braided pomp,” he captioned a picture of the hairstyle. “Thank you everyone for your support and for supporting figure skating!

Weir explained his flamboyant Olympic wear as Hunger Games-inspired. “I decided to go more of Stanley Tucci’s character from The Hunger Games," he told Philadelphia magazine. “I’m trying to stay between the lines of Johnny on Skating with the Stars and the rest of the NBC men’s family in Brooks Brothers.”

Although Weir came under fire for accepting the offer to commentate at the Olympics in Russia despite their anti-gay laws, he’s now getting some respect for his unabashed expression of himself through his fashion choices. According to one Twitter user, the out gay athlete’s latest outfit was a “big time middle finger to Putin.”
