Johnny Weir may no longer be competing in Olympic figure skating, but he's still dressing as flamboyantly as the best of them. The NBC figure skating analyst caused a stir on Sunday with an outfit that was uniquely Johnny Weir and included a giant necklace. It quickly became the talk of Twitter:
Stop what youre doing and turn on the Olympics. Johnny Weir's statement necklace is running away with the show.— Prudence Shank (@prudencewrites) February 9, 2014
Johnny Weir just openly taunting Putin with that necklace and lipstick. Love it.— Jory Rand (@JoryRand) February 9, 2014
Weir posted the ensemble on Instagram and namechecked Erickson Beamon, a jewelry brand that Weir has been associated with before. A rep from Erickson Beamon says the necklace can be purchased at Beyond 7, a high-end store in New York.
In the meantime, we have to wonder if Weir's broadcasting partner Tara Lipinski will up her necklace game the rest of the way after being shown up on Sunday.
