    Figure skating champions Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski comment for NBC during the figure skating pairs short program Tuesday at the Sochi Olympics.

    Johnny Weir is continuing to turn heads with bold wardrobe choices at the Winter Olympics.

    The on-camera outfits donned by the professional figure skater-turned-commentator have attracted a large following on social media throughout the Sochi Games, even inspiring a #WeirWatch hashtag on Twitter.

    On Wednesday, Weir sported leather pants, a lace top and a gray blazer adorned with a giant red flower broach as he, fellow former Olympic figure skater Tara Lipinski and sportscaster Terry Gannon provided commentary for the pair's free skate program.

    Weir, who rocked a similarly flamboyant style when competing on the ice, went for even more color during Tuesday's pair's short program performances, with a bright pink vintage Chanel blazer and a bejeweled necklace. The former U.S. champion styled his black hair for that broadcast in a "braided pomp," a look he called the "unsung hero of my night" on his Instagram account. 

    Lipinski's also been adding some flair to the screen with her on-camera styles. On Tuesday, she complemented Weir's color scheme with a light pink jacket and flower crown headband. Her outfit for Wednesday's broadcast echoed Weir's blossom theme with a black patterned blazer.

    Weir has been documenting his looks daily on Instagram. See his latest outfits below.
