It’s here! It’s here! And it’s amazing. Olympic ice skater turned fashion commentator Johnny Weir showed off his Pegasus-themed hat designed by Kerin Rose Gold at the Kentucky Derby and all is right in the world. Here he is with his co-commentator, fellow Olympic skater Tara Lipinski, and … Bon Jovi’s Richie Sambora? Sure! Why not!
Weir describes his hat on NBC as “clean, pure, fun, feathers, and that’s what the Derby’s about, fashion-wise.” Lipinski chimed in: “Can we take note of my favorite part? The golden hoof. It is sparkling.” It is. And it is beautiful. Here’s a close-up.
And Lipinski should not be overlooked. The pint-size host is looking all sorts of Derby ready in Oliver Tolentino Couture.
Bonus footage: Here’s Weir and Lipinski, both who owned ponies as kids, looking right at home on the horses on Friday.
