Johnny Weir Explains His Extravagant Sochi Style

Feb 19 2014 - 2:00pm

You can take the boy out of the ice-skating rink, but you apparently can't take the crazy ice-skating costumes off the boy. Johnny Weir, who's serving as an expert commenter at the Sochi Winter Olympics for NBC, has drawn even more attention than some of the competitors [1] themselves with his flamboyant on-air outfits.

"I decided to go more of Stanley Tucci's character [2] from The Hunger Games," he explained in an interview [3] with 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 [4]."

To that end, Johnny has combined a number of classic menswear pieces with unexpected pairings, like the white button-down shirt he wore with a highlighter-pink blazer and a choker baring the Chanel logo, or a gray tweed blazer with a white lace shirt. Take a look at everything Johnny has worn in Sochi (so far!) below.

His favored bright blue background made a high-contrast choice against his silver blazer that he paired with a ruffled top, J Brand [14] denim, and spiked Louboutin flats.
