Johnny Weir's Skating Costumes Have Always Been About The Drama

Julia Brucculieri

No one does figure skating costumes quite like Johnny Weir

The two-time American Olympian has definitely made his mark on the world of figure skating, thanks in part to his extravagant outfits ― many of which he helped design. Weir has always brought the drama. 

The three-time U.S. national champion takes plenty of fashion risks off the ice, too. But in the spirit of the 2018 Winter Olympics ― where Weir will once again team up with Olympic gold medalist Tara Lipinski to comment on the figure skating contests ― we’re taking a look back at his eclectic, sparkly and showstopping costumes through the years.
