Tara Lipinski & Johnny Weir Show Us What Olympians Wear To Work

7 comments

Fashion Week might be in February, but for anyone who considers sequins and tulle to be the key to happiness, the figure-skating events happening during next month's Winter Olympics probably trump all. The Donatella and Karl of Sochi are, of course, Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir, two former Olympians who really made the ice rink their personal runways. As official commentators and analysts for NBC this year, the BFF duo needed to swap their spandex and rhinestones for something that paired a little bit better with headsets and news desks — and that's where we came in. Refinery29 editors Connie Wang and Kelly Bourdet walked Lipinski and Weir through a few workwear style tips that'd make 'em shine on camera and then got a few lessons on what to wear from the other side of the mic as well. Yes, folks, a sparkle crotch was involved. Press play to see us all going for the gold.
