Johnny Weir, former figure-skating champion and current NBC commentator, wins all the golds for his outfit choices worn during the Sochi Olympic. For those familiar with Weir, the leather leggings and vintage neon Chanel jackets are tame choices. He even notes that he's trying to toe the conservative line in his own way:
I decided to go more of Stanley Tucci's character from 'The Hunger Games.' 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.
