Johnny Weir’s wardrobe is winning the Winter Olympics

One of the brightest stars on NBC's coverage of the Sochi Winter Olympics both figuratively and literally has been figure skating analyst Johnny Weir. Along with Terry Gannon, Weir and Tara Lipinski have formed one of the better announcing tandems in Sochi.

In addition to his on-point analysis, Weir's fashion has been the talk of social media. In fact, Weir has been using social media to post each day's outfit before he goes on the air on NBCSN. Using his Instagram and Twitter accounts, Weir poses in front of a truck before he enters the Iceberg Skating Palace to show off each ensemble. 

They certainly look quite interesting on television as evidenced by this Pink Panther outfit he wore in the studio on Tuesday.

Then there's the look on Wednesday adorned with blazer and a lace shirt. Plus there's the hair.

There's no doubt that Johnny is comfortable in his own skin and not afraid to break the mold. In fact Weir is his own fashion trend.


If Weir and Don Cherry ever got together to share a moment on-screen, millions of HDTV sets would need instant color adjustments.
