Johnny Weir Goes for Gold with Bold Ensembles

Commentator Johnny Weir's fashion choices attracted a range of responses as he and fellow figure skater Tara Lipinski provided analysis for the team competition during the first weekend of the Winter Games.

  1. Buzz about Weir's baubles started to build during Saturday's broadcast, when he showed off a bling-heavy ring on his left hand.

  2. But by Sunday, Weir's impossible-to-miss gold necklace handily won the Twitter competition for most-talked-about Winter Games accessory.
  3. Some social media users even interpreted the openly gay skater's statement necklace as a political statement about Russia's
    anti-gay laws.


  4. Never one to shy from attention, Weir has taken to his own social media accounts to tout the designers behind his signature style and share other behind-the-scenes photos.
  5. Today's look: Thank you @joomilim @sandro_us, RIA LA, @BPCM and @louboutinworld! Also rocking my Russian braid!
